Upgrading from 3.80 M-33
Hey, just wanted to say thanks in advance to anyone who can help. A year or two ago, I used to involve myself in firmware (when 3.4 OE-A) was the highest custom firmware. I did it mostly to play roms and such, and since then, haven't really tried to fiddle around with the firmware.
A long while later, I learned about certain methods to play ps1 games on my PSP and upgraded to 3.8 for that to play FF9. This time, however, I needed help because I've been out of touch too long.
Anyways, now my current situation is that my brother downloaded the Final Fantasy Dissidia Demo from PSN, and I'd really like to try it out, only the game is telling me that 5.5 firmware is required to even start the game, and although this isn't the case with the Japanese version, I'm assuming this will be the case when the game is officially released, and this is one of the few games I actually want to buy for my PSP. So I need to upgrade.
From skimming around, I see that 5.00 M-33 is the most current, but there's a less stable 5.5 alternative. Someone else also mentioned somewhere that there's a mod to make 5 M-33 run as if it were 5.5. I need to know what I need to upgrade to so I can play this game, am praying that it is possible, and was hoping someone could point me in the direction of a guide to upgrading to whatever firmware is necessary? (The thread with guides only lists up to my current firmware).
Anyways, it will be VERY much appreciated if anyone could help me, and I offer my sincerest thanks. I'm about to leave for work, so unfortunately, I won't be able to respond to whatever anyone says for about 4 hours. At that time, however, I'll be back reading this thread and (hopefully) responding with gratitude.
As you're already on custom firmware you just need to download and install 5.00M33:
Dark-AleX.org - Ver Tema - 5.00 M33 Release
The readme should cover everything you need to install it. Once you're on 5.00M33 just run the network update to patch it to 5.00M33-6
Once you're up to date on the latest M33 firmware follow this to be able to play the demo and also access the PSN store:
Sorry this is vague, it's been a while since I touched my PSP.
Thanks for the help. I got up to 5.00, but still can't play the demo. On the site for the second link you sent me, it seems I need to register for the site so I can download the attached files to do what it says? Also, I don't know how to backup my flash memory (You need a program I don't have?) I don't want to proceed until after everything is backed up, just to be safe.
I'm sorry, but I hear that method doesn't work anymore, because SONY changed where they search. I'm desperate to get this demo working, and further upgrade to 5.00 M33-6. I really need anyone who can help. Does anyone have any information? I've been doing constant research to no avail. I know my friend has 5.00 M33-4 and his demo works but mine doesn't. Is it because I have a PSP Phat?
See this, and you will make it to work.
Thanks a ton, but I really am too much of a newbie at this, and don't know how to backup my txt.file?
Oh god i got it to work!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so damn much!
