The PlayStation Portable (PSP) is a handheld game console made by Sony.

The PSP Custom Firmware 6.61-Pro-C2 will work on all PSP models from the original PSP to the PSP Go and even the E1000, all you need is to be running the official 6.60 or 6.61 firmware to install and use this custom firmware.

Note : On the 15/01/2015 Sony released PSP firmware 6.61, some three and a half years after the last 6.60 update. It's of no benefit to you updating to 6.61 after all this time, however the custom firmware has now been updated to support 6.61. So you can now follow this guide if you happen to have updated to 6.61.

The specific emulator versions compatible with the Half-Byte Loader can be found listed on the official site. Emulators for OFW are meant to run on unmodified firmware, a list for that is also on the HBL forums.

  • SNES9xTYL(mecm)/cm Mod is a port of SNES9x 1.39 to PSP. Inaccuracies everywhere, especially with sound, but it's the best thing available for PSP for SNES emulation. Use the mecm build where possible, unless you use the PSP emulator on Vita, in which case use the s9xTYLcm build.Use the s9xTYLme version for best performance on an actual PSP

Based on DeSmuME PSP project , we get a new Nintendo DS emulator for PSP, called DSonPSP . such as the possibility of choosing the position of the screens , choosing the language in which you want the ROM to run and playing its audio . Now it has expanded the number of Roms that are playable, but the speed, although it has increased compared to the other emulator, is still low.just POC Very Low Compatibility.
