Upgrade to Sony PSP System Software Version 2.00

Posted on August 21, 2005 in GamingPlaystationPlaystation Portable (PSP)

I just upgraded the firmware on my Sony PSP from version 1.51 to 2.00

The most important new feature is the Internet Browser which Sony has very cleverly included. No more hacking required to surf the net using your PSP!

Whilst performing the upgrade the changes being introduced to the PSP software were listed as follows:

  • Revisions to strengthen security were added.
  • UMD music can now be played under [Music].
  • An Internet browser was added.
  • Go To was added as a feature under [Video]. (This applies to UMD video.)
  • A-B Repeat was added as a feature under [Video]. (This applies to UMD video and video data saved on Memory Stick.)
  • 4:3 Screen Mode was added as a feature under [Video]. (This applies to video data saved on Memory Stick.)
  • Audio Options was added as a feature under [Video]. (This applies to video data saved on Memory Stick.)
  • AVC was added as a codec that can be played under [Video]. (This applies to video data saved on Memory Stick.)
  • Support for the Memory Stick Pro Duo was added to [Music].
  • MP4 (AAC) and WAV (LPCM) were added as formats that can be played under [Music]. (This applies to music data saved on Memory Stick.)
  • Image transfer was added as a feature under [Photo].
  • Wallpaper was added as a feature under [Photo].
  • TIFF, PNG, GIF, and BMP were added as image formats that can be displayed under [Photo].
  • Korean was added as an option to [System Language] under [Settings]. [System Settings].
  • [Character Set] was added to [System Settings] under [Settings].
  • [Theme Settings] was added under [Settings].
  • WPA-PSK (TKIP) was added as a security method under [Network Settings].
  • Settings for Infrastructure Mode under [Network Settings] were revised to be easier to use.
  • Input modes were added to the onscreen keyboard.

You can find a useful analysis of the changes as well as a link to where you can download the software at the PSP-hacks site. I also came across a useful Sony PSP Firmware 2.0 Hands-On Preview at Gamespot.

Well… if it is possible upgrade your firmware to the latest one, the latest firmware is 3.70 now

This firmware allow themes, better shortcuts management and simultaneous pics and music playing.

Best of all, this firmware is a lot more stable than 2.XX
