I'm sorting out my lad's PSP (old 1003 model), bought some bits like battery cover, new charger and 4gb memory, with the idea of changing the firmware so I can stick games on the mem stiick (he dropped it a couple of months ago and it's screwed the umd drive)
Problem is, I just tried to do a standard update (it's never had one) to 6.31 from 3.something, and as someone previously posted on another thread, it gets to 99%, and then around a minute later drops to 84%, climbs up again hits 99 and drops to 84. The only thing I can do is switch it off which will brick it i'm sure.
If there's already guides on here or elsewhere on how to unbrick it, please give me a link.
Secondly, what's the best firmware to put on so it will run ISOs?
