Before you start reading this, I reccommend that you check your PSP first if it is hackable or not.
The post regarding the topic is also located on this category.
And you must also check your PSP if it has CUSTOM FIRMWARE or not.
You can check it by following these steps:

1.Turn on your PSP.
2.Go to SETTINGS. Located at the leftmost portion of the XMB(XrossMediaBar)
3.Scroll down to find SYSTEM SETTINGS.

Heres a list of CUSTOM FIRMWARES for PSP, check if it is the same as your SYSTEM SOFTWARE:

*3.60 M33
*3.71 M33
*3.71 M33-2
*3.71 M33-4
*3.80 M33
*3.80 M33-2
*3.80 M33-4
*3.80 M33 Popsloader
*3.80 M33 Popsloader Version 2
*3.90 M33 1.50 kernel Add-on(PSP Fat/Phat)
*3.90 M33 1.50 kernel Add-on Version 2
*4.01 M33
*5.00 M33
*5.00 M33-3
*5.00 M33-4
*5.00 M33-5
*5.00 M33-6

If your system software is not included on the list you might have an OFFICIAL FIRMWARE running on your PSP. You can check out PSP terms on one of my post also located on this FORUM CATEGORY.
I have also posted a guide on how to change your PSP's firmware. So you better check it out first.
