Although they may have begun to become obsolete compared to the boom of smartphones and tablets, the PSP hand held is still a very popular worldwide. As a result Sony continues to release new updates to keep it updated.
Many novice users may think that firmware updates can be a waste of time. But in reality, these updates allow us access new features or tools that could not be used in the original system.
Unlike many computers on which updates are made automatically, PSP consoles often require us to perform the update manually. A process that can be annoying to many users.
WARNING: Before starting the upgrade, you should fully charge the battery and make sure you’re not using homebrew (unofficial program).
1. Wireless Internet connection
Connect your PSP to the Internet and select “Network Update”. Once there you can select your WLAN options, choosing “Scan” and giving the PSP the freedom to find a network automatically.
2. Choose the connection
Select the option to connect and press the X button. The PSP will connect to the internet and tell you if an update is available.
3. Free Space Required
If no updates are available you can still play as many games as you want. But keep in mind to always have at least 21MB of free memory for updates.
4. Download updates
The firmware update starts automatically. The time it takes to download will depend on connection speed. Also remember to keep the PSP firmware turned on so that it could update correctly.
5. PSP Updates
After the download is complete press the X button to start the update. Then restart the console so that everything works fine.
6. Terminate the process
After completing the updates, make sure that the PSP is not disconnected or turned off before completing the installation.
As you can see by following a few simple steps you can update your PSP yourself without any assistance.
