updating psp firmware 6 31-28

it looks like i can at least go back to playing donkey kong country with the snes emulator.fanjita! this will (hopefully soon) allow all of us to update to 2.6 (from 1.5) and reap the benefits of full resolution video playback, built in browser/rss (even though webnab kicks ass). the excuse behind 'homebrew games on psp' is just that – an excuse. when u press x on the game u want to play it should tell u what version u need before u can play it.

an excuse to be able to run pirated games under the false pretence of homebrew.

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.

There is a flaw in the design of SSL 3.0 which basically makes "secure" connections insecure if they are being attacked by someone using the Poodle Attack.

Due to this, most Web sites accessed over HTTPS dropped support of SSL to force connections to use the newer and secure TLS.

Thus if you go to one of these ever-growing-in-number Web sites (such as,,, or 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.

Okay guys so this one may actually be somewhat useful.

I found my old PSP and decided I'd put some emulators on it, SNES, Game Boy, etc. When you find it, follow the instructions on the page to download it to your computer.
