Getting StartedWhat will I need?
USB CableRecommended: AC AdapterA PSP Classic
If on a PSP Classic, you must already be on 3.71M33. An installation guide for 3.71M33 can be found here.PSP Slim
If on a PSP Slim, you must update to 3.71M33 first. A guide can be found here.3.93 CFW Update Files3.93 Sony EBOOT
Installing 3.93 CFWExtract the 3.93 CFW Files.Connect your PSP to your PC via USB cable and do the following:
Create a folder in 'X:/PSP/GAME/' named 'UPDATE'.Place the EBOOT.PBP you just extracted into the UPDATE folder.Rename the 3.93 EBOOT.PBP to '393.PBP'.Place 393.PBP in the root of your memory stick (X:/).Exit USB Mode.Make sure your PSP is using the 3.XX kernel:
Turn your PSP off completely (hold the power button for 10 seconds).Hold R and turn your PSP on.A menu will appear, go to Configuration.Under 'Game Folder Kernel' change the kernel to 3.52 if it isn't already.Run the application from your PSP's main menu under GAME > Memory Stick.Do not turn your PSP off, unplug the AC Adapter while your PSP is updating. Doing so can render your PSP useless.Once the update has finished it will ask you to press either X or O, do so or you could brick your PSP.This firmware doesn't change the version in System Information, so it will show up as offical firmware, but with all custom firmware features.
Changes in 3.93 CFWUses the 3.93 kernelImplented all the original custom firmware features.Ability to use the normal recovery inside the XMB by pressing the HOME button:
When in the recovery, the system is suspended, and you can change all options directly.All options work immediatly, there is no need to reboot (even the Slim's USB charging option)Ability to make a Pandora battery from the recovery, read and restore the EEPROM, etc. Providing that the motherboard supports it.Ability to hide the MAC adress in System Information, if you do so, the MAC will show visually as all 0's.Ability to save the savegames in normal format, rather then encrypted (only functions in March33 and Sony NP9960 mode).The native 3.93 pops isn't as good as the previous pops, therefor I hope the popsloader will get updated to support 3.93.
