Updating a psp

The most straightforward way to update your firmware is by using the "system update" feature on the PSP itself.

Fortunately, updating your PSP's firmware is not difficult, though it can be a little confusing at first.

Keep in mind, however, that if your want to run homebrew programming, updating your firmware might not be the best choice.

The key is to get the update data onto our PSP's memory stick (or PSPgo's onboard memory) in the correct folder.

Note that all of the folder names need to be capitalized or else it will not work.

Step 4: Make sure to copy the firmware update file into the UPDATE folder on the memory stick.

Step 5: Now make sure to fully charge your PSP and plug it into a wall outlet.

If you just want to run official software and games, though, updating is the best choice.
