       * recover semi-bricks * up-/downgrade your CFW *
       * flash *ANY* CFW directely to almost any other *
       * backup/restore firmware flash (not NAND dump) *
       * make and restore NAND dumps *
        >> all without Pandora <<
    >>> *D*O*W*N*L*O*A*D* <<<

    What is this? And why?

    Short version:
    • Flashes a fresh M33 CFW (everyone from 3.71 up) for recovering semi-bricks or to up-/downgrade CFW
    • does not use Pandora, runns from the recovery menu or the XMB
    • does not use (as in launch) the original Sony Updater (only extracts all required files from the original .PBP)
    • runns fine on CFWs lower than 3.52-M33-3 - handy for upgrading older FWs w/o the "need to go 3.52, then 3.52-3, then higher" odyssey :-)
    • runns fine from TimeMachine (3.40-OE on Fat and 3.60-M33 on Slim)
    • can backup the FW flash and restore selected parts (XMB theme, settings, PSN activation, complete firmware)
    • can make and restore full NAND dumps

    Long version:
    Can be found the the README!

    Latest Update:
    First off, a small "what's NOT (yet?) supported": ANY kind of flashing on "newer 2000s", PSP 3000 or the PSPgo
    If support for those models will ever, in any way be added to Recovery Flasher is doubtful (mostly as there's no CFWs for those).
    MAYBE (and I can't stress the *MAYBE* enough, it's more likely a "likely not") support to flash OFW on (some of) those models might be added one day for the sake of downgrading the OFW.

    And with that out of my system, here's the "what's new":
    • fixed compatibility with 6.20-TN HEN
    • added check for 6.20-TN and the 6.35 HEN
    • added check for 6.20-TN HEN's flash0 protection being enabled
    • added check for configured game mode plugins when on 6.20-TN and the 6.35 HEN
    • added detection of the PSP4000 model and the PSPgo
    • added appropriate handling of all of the above, when detected, to avoid unnecessary tears casted by users
    • added support to handle 6.00, 6.10 and 6.20 FWs for restore of (filewise) flash backup and clean install from scratch
    • added decryption of extracted (hidden) updater driver modules - and so enabling downgrade from 6.35+ (only on hackable PSPs though, for now)
    • added new firmware packs to install clean 6.20 OFW using Recovery Flasher
    • bundled the existing 5.50-GEN firmware packs with the main release

    >>> *D*O*W*N*L*O*A*D* <<<
    If you feel like supporting the PSP development a bit, maybe go here:

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    Just tested this on 6.20 TN-B and 6.35 Pro (signed version) and it works a treat.

    So for now, you can flash cfw to any PSP 1000 or 2000 non TA088v3 mobo without PANDORA regardless of what OFW you are on (bar 6.36). 5.03 is no longer a constraint, and you can now kiss goodbye to 5.03 HEN on a phat especially.
