Hellcats Recovery Flasher

2060.jpg

What is this? And why?

========================================

* 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

Recovery Flasher 1.65 changelog:

* 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

iR Shell v5.2

Thanks to @BobbyBlunt

irshell36.jpg

What is IRShell?

IRShell is just that. A shell. But, it’s no ordinary shell. IRShell allows you to listen to music in games, stream media from your PC to your PSP, run homebrew, have tons of key shortcuts, control your T.V, view all kinds of documents, manage files, anything basically! It also offers a great graphical interface, which is much more pleasant to look at then the standard XMB.

@”BobbyBlunt” description

IrShell is a great homebrew. It allows you to use the IR function of the 1000 model to control TVs, DVD players etc. It allows for multitasking on other models. It has a file system built in, and it has all the functions for remotejoy, and a function to allow you to plug it into your computer and use your HDD as a big memory stick
