Firmware 5.0 for the Sony PlayStation Portable is now out and available for downloading. Thanks to all the readers who told us about it. The big thing in FW 5.0 is the addition of direct access to the PlayStation Store.
Also new in this update are a full-size on-screen keyboard, a sleep timer that users can enable during music playback, and the ability to use the PSP Slim's video out feature to display PSOne titles at full screen resolution depending on the TV the Slim is connected to.
The system will automatically change to USB mode when a USB cable is connected.
The [Original] theme has been redesigned.
Instructions: Copy UPDATE folder /PSP/GAME/ and run.
5.00 sony update as 500.PBP included in UPDATE Folder.
use L Trigger + Triangle to skip battery level check.
- 4.01 to 5.00
- Bug fix: when changing speed in xmb, and the psp turned the brightness to 0 automatically the speed was reseted to 222 again.
Note to pspstates plugin users: this plugin won't work in this firmware due to it being made
specifically for 4.01. Running it in 5.00 M33 can cause problems, wait until an update of plugin.
- Translating the recovery.
To translate the recovery create a text file in ms0:/seplugins/xx_recovery.txt
or flash1:/xx_recoery.txt (they are evaluated in that order), where xx is the language code
of your language:
es -> spanish
en -> english
fr -> french
de -> german
it -> italian
ja -> japanese
ko -> korean
nl -> netherlands
pt -> portuguese
ru -> russian
ch1 -> chinese simplified
ch2 -> chinese traditional
The file en_recovery.txt in translate folder is included for people to translate to their languages, this file is not needed for english people, as the english language is used when no language file is found.
Just change the english strings to your language ones, and put it in the path mentioned above. Be careful to check in the recovery that the lines look fine, don't use too large text.
The spanish file es_recovery.txt will be written by the program in the memory stick.
