Updating psp from cfw to ofw
That's right, no browsing PSN, no buying games, downloading DLC, videos, music, or anything through Sony's services and any other site which uses only TLS. Surprising many people including myself, Sony issued a firmware update numbered 6.61 for PSP's. However, if you were to go by the description on the official Sony page about it, you'd never know what it is for. It reads, verbatim, There is nothing there about SSL, nothing about TLS, nothing about PSN not working, and nothing about how many Web sites are unreachable on PSP's running anything earlier than 6.61.
Worse yet, due to the generic language of the boilerplate instructions Sony has on its firmware page, it makes it seem like you can just download this update over Wi-Fi and have the PSP automatically apply it or use a UMD to get it. Because all Sony online services dropped support for SSL by December 2014, you can't use the update feature to have the PSP go online to get its update. And you can forget about getting a UMD with the update on it. 2) Get your PSP's memory card hooked up to your computer.
Thus if you go to one of these ever-growing-in-number Web sites (such as grc.com, duckduckgo.com, facebook.com, or m.facebook.com) you will be unable to connect with the PSP's Web browser.
Now while this isn't a concern for many PSP owners as most of them don't routinely use their PSP's to connect to Web sites, some do - and more importantly for most PSP owners, you can't use PSN for _anything_ if you don't address this issue.
Too bad SONY doesn't make Media Go available for anything but Microsoft Windows - it leaves everyone that doesn't use it such as Mac and Linux users in the dark...
well, it leaves them with less easy pathways to update their hardware.
Then the PSP will reboot into the firmware update app which you loaded onto the memory card.You can then follow the simple prompts to apply the firmware.The actual application of the firmware is rather fast, so you don't need a big charge on your battery to install it.And don't worry, you can still apply custom firmware to your PSP even if you install the 6.61 version of the official firmware. Now to see if I can install the 6.61 CFW without bricking anything.Believe it or not, but it is /better/ to install the custom firmware without first installing the official firmware these days.
