50°
318w ago - As mentioned previously, Sony has now released the PSP Firmware Update v4.01 as expected.

To recap, the update includes two main changes, the latter being improved video playback for certain file types.

* Display of search results under Internet Search has been improved for certain languages.
* Playback of video content under Video has been improved for certain file types.

Download: PSP Firmware v4.01 (US) / PSP Firmware v4.01 (EU)

No word yet if Alejandro plans to jump right to 4.01 CFW now, or proceed with his 4.00 M33 CFW that was expected later this week. Time will tell...
 

PSP Firmware Update 4.00 Now Available!

319w ago - PSP Firmware 4.00 is now released! The update can now be downloaded from Network Update and as promised, includes two new main features.

Namely, the ability to search Google without the need of launching the PSP's often slow Internet Browser and change the viewing speed of video played on the PSP by pressing up or down on the directional pad. Personally, we were expecting a little more from a X.00 update, but it is what it is.

Changelog:

* [Internet Search] has been added as a feature under [Network].

* You can now change viewing speed during video playback by pressing the UP/DOWN buttons. Use this feature if you want to watch a video quickly, or if you want to slow down playback and listen to the dialogue carefully.
 

Sony: PSP Firmware 4.00 Update Hitting Soon

50°
319w ago - PlayStation Network director Eric Lempel has announced that firmware 4.00 for the PSP will be released "soon."

The main highlight of the update, according to Lempel, will be the addition of an in-XMB internet search powered by Google. The search function can retain a history of up to 20 searches.

Additionally, the update will allow users to change the viewing speed of movies played from your Memory Stick Pro Duo. Essentially, you'll be able to slow down or fast forward playback by hitting up or down on the PSP's d-pad while playing a video.

Not a bad update by any means, but we can't help but feel slightly disappointed with the lack of any new major functionality. Where's the built-in PS Store for PSP, Sony? :P

321w ago - Miriam has returned with an update to his PSP Custom Firmware, dubbed 3.95 GEN-2. Users of the Firmware will be pleased to know that Miriam has patched up compatibility issues with a number of homebrew applications in this release, most notably SNES9XTYL and PSPTube.

Additionally, the author notes that all recently reported bugs concerning fat model PSP units have been fixed. As usual, installation and usage instructions can be found in the included readme file.

Note: Although this is considered a stable release, we are still recommending that all users create a basic Pandora setup before installing so that you can easily downgrade back to 3.90 M33 in case the Firmware is not running as expected.
 

PSP Firmware 3.93 Update Available Now!

332w ago - Update: According to zefie (and the PSP Updater), there is now a second/alternate 3.93 Firmware revision available HERE which appears to be either a quick fix or a new update format, size, and CRC ?

PSP Firmware 3.93 is now available for download via Network Update. As expected, the update is relatively minor, offering enhanced support for PlayStation Network titles as detailed in the Firmware changelog:

- Support for PLAYSTATION Network titles has been expanded.

Download: PSP Firmware 3.93 (US) / PSP Firmware 3.93 (EU)

Not mentioned in the official changelog, it appears there are 20 new Internet radio players that have been added to the PSP's Internet Radio feature.

Thanks to John Koller over at SCEA for pointing this out at the PlayStation Blog!
