The Ultimate Firmware, DevHook & CheatDevice guide


Recommended Posts



There has been some wrong info posted about what you need to do to downgrade, install DevHook, and installing CheatDevice. The plan for this thread is to get the right info out. If you find any problems or something wrong, feel free to report it to me. I want this thread to be 100% correct. There are some things where you will have to flash your PSP. This means writing info to the place where the PSP stores the firmware files, PSP config files, and more. This is the most risky thing you can do with your PSP but if you follow the standards, you should be fine. Here is some info you need to know.

Tips to make sure you don't get a brick

1. Make sure your battery is at least 50% (100% recommended)

2. Make sure your PSP AC adapter is plugged in.

3. Make sure you don't have a TA-082 mother board or higher. TA-082 mother board check

Some people are saying that you need to have an ISO to have CheatDevice. Not true at all! Thanks to LordSturm and Dark_Alex! LordSturm has created a CheatDevice flasher that flashes CheatDevice to the flash. This works with 2.71SE-B2 and it's firmware check process bypass.

When it comes time to upgrade CheatDevice, just place the updated PRX onto the root of your memory stick, load the program, and then hit circle. As easy as that! Also, this is fully uninstall able!

i'm on 2.82,so i'm doomed,i'd love to see a video of it,i've heard it has gravity like lcs cheat device did,could you tell me if you are able to turn off the cheatdevice ingame,because in lcs you could set the gravity and water levels to different values and once you turn off the cheatdevice,they'd stay that way so you could float around in multiplayer,i want to know if this is possible on vcs?
