PSP Custom Firmware Version 6.70 M33 6: A Complete Guide for All PSP Models



Introduction




The PlayStation Portable (PSP) is a handheld gaming console released by Sony in 2004. It has a large library of games that can be played on UMD discs or downloaded from the PlayStation Store. However, some users may want to expand the capabilities of their PSP by installing custom firmware on it.




Psp-custom-firmware Version 6.70 M33 6



Custom firmware is a modified version of the official firmware released by Sony for the PSP. It allows you to run homebrew applications, emulators, plugins, and backup games on your PSP. Homebrew applications are unofficial programs created by developers that can enhance your PSP experience, such as media players, file managers, web browsers, etc. Emulators are programs that can simulate other gaming systems on your PSP, such as NES, SNES, Game Boy, etc. Plugins are extensions that can add new features or modify existing ones on your PSP, such as cheats, screenshots, overclocking, etc. Backup games are copies of your original UMD games that can be stored and played from your memory stick.


One of the most popular custom firmware versions for the PSP is 6.70 M33 6. This is a full custom firmware that uses the pre-IPL exploit and flashes a custom IPL onto your PSP. This means that your PSP will always boot into custom firmware even after a cold reboot. This custom firmware is based on the official firmware 6.60 or 6.61 and offers most of the features of a full custom firmware, such as native ISO loading, recovery menu, VSH menu, PSX support, etc.


However, installing custom firmware also involves some risks, such as bricking your device or voiding your warranty. Bricking means rendering your PSP unusable by corrupting its system files or hardware components. Voiding your warranty means losing your right to claim free repairs or replacements from Sony if something goes wrong with your PSP. Therefore, you should be careful and follow the instructions carefully before attempting to install custom firmware on your PSP.


Requirements




Before you can install custom firmware on your PSP, you need to have some requirements ready. These include:


  • A PSP console that is compatible with custom firmware 6.70 M33 6. This includes all PSP 1000 models and some PSP 2000 models (non-TA-088v3). You can check your PSP model by looking at the sticker under the battery or by using this tool: [PSP Model Checker](^2^).



  • A memory stick with enough space to store the custom firmware files and your backup games. You can use any size of memory stick, but it is recommended to use at least 4 GB for optimal performance.



  • A USB cable to connect your PSP to your computer.



  • A fully charged battery or an AC adapter to power your PSP during the installation process.



  • A backup of your PSP data in case something goes wrong. You can use the backup utility in the official firmware settings menu to copy your data to your memory stick or your computer.



Once you have these requirements ready, you can proceed to the next step: checking your PSP firmware version.


How to check your PSP model and firmware version?




Before you can install custom firmware on your PSP, you need to know what model and firmware version you have. This will determine whether your PSP is compatible with custom firmware 6.70 M33 6 and what steps you need to follow to install it.


To check your PSP model and firmware version, follow these steps:


  • Turn on your PSP and go to the settings menu.



  • Select "System Settings" and then "System Information".



  • Look at the screen and note down the following information:



  • The model number of your PSP. It should be something like "PSP-1000", "PSP-2000", or "PSP-3000".



  • The firmware version of your PSP. It should be something like "6.60" or "6.61".



If your PSP model is "PSP-1000" or "PSP-2000" (non-TA-088v3), then you are good to go. If your PSP model is "PSP-2000" (TA-088v3) or "PSP-3000", then you cannot install custom firmware 6.70 M33 6 on it. However, you can still use a temporary custom firmware that does not flash anything onto your PSP, such as 6.60 PRO-C2 or 6.61 PRO-C2. You can find more information about these temporary custom firmware versions here: [Temporary Custom Firmware].


If your PSP firmware version is lower than 6.60 or 6.61, then you need to update it to one of these versions before installing custom firmware 6.70 M33 6. If your PSP firmware version is already 6.60 or 6.61, then you can skip this step and go directly to the installation process.


How to update your PSP to official firmware 6.60 or 6.61?




If you need to update your PSP to official firmware 6.60 or 6.61, follow these steps:


  • Download the official firmware update file from Sony's website: [Firmware Update 6.60] or [Firmware Update 6.61].



  • Connect your PSP to your computer using the USB cable and enable USB mode on your PSP.



  • Create a folder named "PSP" on the root of your memory stick if it does not exist already.



  • Create a folder named "GAME" inside the "PSP" folder if it does not exist already.



  • Create a folder named "UPDATE" inside the "GAME" folder if it does not exist already.



  • Copy the downloaded firmware update file (EBOOT.PBP) into the "UPDATE" folder.



  • Disconnect your PSP from your computer and exit USB mode on your PSP.



  • Go to the game menu on your PSP and select "Memory Stick".



  • Select the firmware update icon and press X to start the update process.



  • Follow the on-screen instructions and wait for the update to finish.



Congratulations! You have successfully updated your PSP to official firmware 6.60 or 6.61. Now you are ready to install custom firmware 6.70 M33 6 on it.
