Follow it through to identify the route to hacking your psp. When you arrive at the solution you will be given a reference number Px where X is a number.

    you need to go 5.50 gen-b then 5.50 gen-b2

    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)

    I'd just like to say thanks for these tutorials

    I have a 1.50 PSP-1000 with 3.90 M33 so there was no way I wanted to run a Sony update

    Today I bought Gran Turismo, my first PSP game for a very long time (Wipeout Pulse was my last) and I forgot that I would need a firmware update

    So while I'm not a total 'tech-tard', I'm no tech-wizz either, thus I was dreading the thought of endless upgrading to all the CFW's since 3.90 M33 just to get it running but after finding this thread I found it a very straight forward affair and not at all the intimidating mission i was expecting

    The video guides are brilliant so a big thanks again and thanks also to the folk who create these clever programs and CFW's
