    Code:
    [B]   H E L L C A T s   R e c o v e r y   F l a s h e r
     =====================================================
       * recover semi-bricks * up-/downgrade your CFW *
       * flash *ANY* CFW directely to almost any other *
       * backup/restore firmware flash (not NAND dump) *
       * make and restore NAND dumps *
        >> all without Pandora <<
     =====================================================[/B]

    What is this? And why?
    ========================================

    Short version:
    --------------------
    • Flashes a fresh M33 CFW (everyone from 3.71 up) for recovering semi-bricks or to up-/downgrade CFW
    • does not use Pandora, runns from the recovery menu or the XMB
    • does not use (as in launch) the original Sony Updater (only extracts all required files from the original .PBP)
    • runns fine on CFWs lower than 3.52-M33-3 - handy for upgrading older FWs w/o the "need to go 3.52, then 3.52-3, then higher" odyssey :)
    • runns fine from TimeMachine (3.40-OE on Fat and 3.60-M33 on Slim)
    • can backup the FW flash and restore selected parts (XMB theme, settings, PSN activation, complete firmware)
    • can make and restore full NAND dumps

    Long version:
    --------------------
    Can be found the the README! :)


    Latest Update:
    --------------------
    v1.65
    First off, a small "what's NOT (yet?) supported": ANY kind of flashing on "newer 2000s", PSP 3000 or the PSPgo
    If support for those models will ever, in any way be added to Recovery Flasher is doubtful (mostly as there's no CFWs for those).
    MAYBE (and I can't stress the *MAYBE* enough, it's more likely a "likely not") support to flash OFW on (some of) those models might be added one day for the sake of downgrading the OFW.

    And with that out of my system, here's the "what's new":
    • fixed compatibility with 6.20-TN HEN
    • added check for 6.20-TN and the 6.35 HEN
    • added check for 6.20-TN HEN's flash0 protection being enabled
    • added check for configured game mode plugins when on 6.20-TN and the 6.35 HEN
    • added detection of the PSP4000 model and the PSPgo
    • added appropriate handling of all of the above, when detected, to avoid unnecessary tears casted by users
    • added support to handle 6.00, 6.10 and 6.20 FWs for restore of (filewise) flash backup and clean install from scratch
    • added decryption of extracted (hidden) updater driver modules - and so enabling downgrade from 6.35+ (only on hackable PSPs though, for now)
    • added new firmware packs to install clean 6.20 OFW using Recovery Flasher
    • bundled the existing 5.50-GEN firmware packs with the main release

    I was hoping there is one where I could get a nand dump without pandora. Great app for people with TA-088 mobo's like myself.

    Edit: Good One. ^^

    When are you gonna release the one for 4.01 M33-2
  9. silver_surfer

    silver_surfer New Member

    @ richie390:

    there's no need for CFW 4.01 m33-2 because you can just update from CFW 3.71 m33 to 4.01 m33-2

    Very useful app. thanks so much.
    So many people I encounter say I got 3.02 OE-A and this makes things so much easier.

    Yap, while you can have the 4.01 update right along the recovery app, the next version will be able to install 4.01-M33-2 as well (you can choose which one you like).
    It'll also come with an additional .ELF binary that can be used from a Pandora stick, so you can flash the 4.01 directly to a PSP from Pandora, as long as there's no DDCv6 :)

    However, I got one last issue on the Slim I have to resolve....

    @silver_surfer:
    That's weird. Did it spit out any errors?

    @davd:
    Sounds like you have a hardware problem with the keys of your PSP.... there nothing I can do about that.

    @badwhip:
    Is it a Fat PSP with 1.50 addon?

    @ Hellcat:

    it did not give any error.. it just shut down after pressing a button after "press any button to shutdown.... "


    UPDATE:

    I found the solution to my problem.. :blushing:

    what I deed was use may normal battery not may service mode battery

    then after installing CFW 3.71 m33 I remove the battery then insert it again..

    viola! conflict resolved! :biggrin:
