Lol, welcome to my world. Imagine coming back out of the blue from devhook days to a damn full blown custom firmware this and that. Remember the good ol' days when you could make something display text on the screen and it was like THE plugin? Then of course fiddling with this and that to make devhook work..boy that was fun...the good days. Now it's like a fancy dancy flasher with big obvious SCE letters, rather than debug, that pretty much state the readme in the thing.
Now the 5.0M33-6 is coming？So the RF will...1.51？
And install firmware 5.03?
This is probably one of the most useful programs on the PSP (if you use CFW, of course ;) ).
The only thing I wish would be implemented is more info for backups, such as: FW you were using, and date created.
Other than that, this is the perfect recovery app. :tup:
Just use the version from the "FW1.50" folder from the downloaded archive and you can flash 1.50 straight to 3.71 and above :)
Hmm.... Just use the Sony Updater ;)
Good idea, actually....
Waiting on the next release :)
Is there any way to downgrade from 5.00 m33-6 yet? When i updated almost all my homebrew apps stopped working. Help.
just use this app (or pandora)
Yep, you can use this to d/g to (almost) w/e you want :)
New release get's delayed a bit as I found out about an important safety check I need/want to put in before the new release.
Apart from that I already changed the autonaming of backups to include PSP Type, FW and date.
Another neat feature (IMO) is that RF now supports additional "Firmware Packs", that contain information on how to install (C)FWs it does not (yet) know natively.
This will eliminate the need for a new release everytime the (C)FW gets updated, as I just need to pack up such a FW-Pack and RF will then be able to install the new (C)FW :)
(you will still need the Sony updater for the target FW, those packs only contain info and some data to tell RF what to do with it ;) )
It was released around September 2007 but it should have a pretty high compatibility with homebrew. (On second thought, it doesn't matter when it was released! :p )
eLoader 1.000 IPA
Checksum calculation of the provided EBOOT.PBP's would be good, but I assume that you are adding it now. :)
**SOLVED - READ END OF POST FOR UPDATE**
I have been out of the homebrew scene since it pretty much started; I'm so lost >.>
I am getting errors when trying to update my phat psp 1.5 to new 5.00 m33 (4 i think? whatever 1.5 hellcat uses)
I have tried two different places to download 500.PBP and both do not work. I purchased this PSP near launch and have run homebrew on it and devhook
prior but never upgraded the firmware ever.
I am using an original PSP US 1001 firmware version 1.50 with a psp formatted memory stick(yellow sandisk gamer 1gb)
Yes, I copied RECOVERY folder into PSP/GAME
Yes, I copied 500.PBP into RECOVERY folder
Yes, I copied %__SCE__rflash and __SCE__rflash into PSP/GAME
Yes, I am running legacy 1.50 mode HELLCAT's CFW Recovery Flasher(1.5) from the XMB on a 100% normal battery with my a/c adaptor plugged in.

I tried searching and google but no solutions and just the error in other apps.
Help me Hellcat! ^_^
p.s. The 500.PBP doesn't need to be in another location for the 1.5 OFW users does it?
At first I thought I might have had a bad memstick and used a 2gb sony memstick duo I had laying around but had the same problems so I meddled around and found out that...
The Official Sony Updater PBP file needs to be in the root directory of the memstick for ofw 1.5 users with this new 1.5 recovery flasher!! Please let your users know in the readme or edit program =)
Hellcat you owe me a new heart almost died when i saw formatting flash0 when i was testing the program worked on my friends psp!!! :P
Hellcat, I could not get the normal, CFW 3.XX+ Kernel, version to work correctly on my PSP. It said something to the effect of not being able to reload or reinitialize the decryption modules. I have tried putting the update eboots in the recovery folder, in the root and both at the same time; I have also tried loading the modules into cache, but that too failed. I wasn't about to give up so I tried the version made for 1.50, and it worked without any complaints. I have a Classic PSP-1001 series PSP that was on 5.02 GEN-A with the 1.50 add-on installed sporting a TA-81 motherboard. I was trying to downgrade (or upgrade, depending on how you look at it) to 5.00 m33. I only had the 1.50 eboot and the 5.00 eboot on my PSP. I hope all of this info helps you out!
Aside from that, I would like to request that we have the ability, through your program, to upgrade to ANY firmware and to any update (m33-x updates, not firmwares) directly. You may want to put such options under the Advanced Users portion of your wonderful program. My idea on how to make this work is have the user put the appropriate PSAR dumper (or build them all in yourself, only if you're feeling nice), the update and the firmware eboot(s) in a specific folder. You may need to have them supply a configuration file so the Recovery Flasher knows which eboot is what.
PS: I love your program and thank you for creating it.
*/ Edited to make clear that I meant the 3.XX Kernel not firmware */
... No, not really.
i think he means the kernel CFW 3.XX+
OK, long overdue.... but here it comes :)
** UPDATE ** UPDATE ** UPDATE **
Changelog since last release:
- Updated 5.00-M33 installation to revision 6
- Changed autonaming of new backup folders to include date, firmware, psp model
- Made the resurrecion.prx replacement function working on all DDCs from 6 and above
- Added detection of PSP 3000 and PSP 2000 TA-088v3+. Flash writing functions will be disabled on those PSPs as they are not CFW capable and flashing would result in a brick
- Added support for "Firmware Packs" - theese, like addons, packs will eliminate the need for a complete new release only when a new (C)FW is released. Instead of releasing a new Recovery Flasher it'll just be such a pack, enabling Recovery Flasher to install the new firmware until an update of the main app is done that supports the firmware natively. Can/Will also be used for making Recovery Flasher install CFWs not supported, like GEN and such.
- Added complete checksum-check of the updater .PBP going to be used to avoid corrupted/incomplete .PBPs causing a brick
- Added full verify of the NAND dump that got written to be sure you have a good one
- Added detection of HEN mode
- Added detection and propper handling if a backup set contains OFW instead of CFW (like when made from HEN)
- Added better NAND dump handling. New dumps are now created with names similar to the (new) backup slot names (and now go into /flash-nanddumps), incl. an ID for the PSP they are made on, on NAND restore a list is shown with all available dumps matching the ID of the current PSP to choose from (the ID matching should prevent choosing a wrong dump accidentally)
- Added back/cancel on backup creation and restore
- Backups made from HEN mode are tagged to identify them as containing ORIGINAL firmware (as those backups do!)

1st post has been updated as well :)
looks good. great job =)
As faithful as always Hellcat ;)
Can this Program Upgrade a PSP to CF if it hasnt been modded before?
No, as it is a homebrew application itself. So it would need to hack the PSP in order to enable itself so it can hack the psp.
In other words, no.
actually you could with HEN if your mobo was hackable
i have a psp 1000 currentley running HEN do i need any extra files or will this automatically install cfw on my psp
