    First of all buy a memory stick and a USB.You cant do nothing without them.I would suggest an 8 GB MEMORY STICK.Then you must install CFW.I would suggest 6.60 PRO-B10 as it is the newest one.Update to 6.60 Official Firmware either by network update or manually
    Then download 6.60 PRO B-10fix1 from here http://psp.dashhacks.com/downloads/psp-custom-firmware-pro-b10
    Extract PROUPDATE and CIPL_Flasher folders to PSP\GAME folder on memory stick
    From XMB run PROUPDATE then CIPL_Flasher
    Now you are on 6.60 PRO B-10fix1. Then create an ISO folder on the root of your MS(Computer->Removable Drive(X: )X isthe letter of your psp.In that folder you add the ISO's.

    There is a a chance of bricking it during the procession.Just make sure you dont shut down the psp while updating.And its better when your PSP IS UNLOCKED SO YOU SHOULD DEFINATELY TRY IT!!!.And yes all the games.And 5.03 gen are CFW too but they are older than 6.60 pro-b10.

    I didnt use the fast recovery folder at all i did what i stated above and i am on 6.60 pro B-10.I dont know why use fast recovery.
    And if you brick your psp you can simply un brick it by using Magick memory stick and pandora battery(you can create both of them).
    I am sure you are panicked.Try it and tell me the results.

    Disregard everything you have read !! You have a 3000 and its only partially hackable . You can only use a Lite Custom Firmware . DO NOT RUN THE CIPL_Flasher , it will brick your psp !

    Do this after you have a memory stick:

    Insert memory stick into psp
    Go to System Settings and format the memory stick (it will create the folders you need)
    Update to Official Firmware 6.60 either by network update or manually (ask if you don't know how)
    Download 6.60 PRO B-10fix1 from here http://pspslimhacks.com/psp-custom-firmware-6-xx-pro-b10-fix/
    Extract PROUPDATE and FastRecovery folders to PSP\GAME folder on your memory stick
    From the XMB under Game-->Memory Stick run PROUPDATE
    Now you will be on 6.60 PRO B-10fix1
    After a reboot , crash , or dead battery run FastRecovery to restart your Lite Custom Firmware .

    Thanks for your answer, and what do you mean with partially hackable? And what's a CIPL_Flasher? and what do you mean with "after a reboot , crash , dead battery?

    Partially Hackable means cannot run a Full Custom Firmware
    The CIPL_Flasher is what makes the CFW permanent for fully hackable PSP's
    "after a crash , reboot or dead battery " means that when your partially hackable psp reboots it will be back on OFW . So you must run FastRecovery to restart the Lite Custom Firmware.

    This would work great on a fully hackable psp , but not a 3000 as the OP has . And a pandora battery and magic memory stick does not work on a 3000 either . I know you meant well but it could have lead to a brick . Please try to be more careful in the future .

    Rename the folder with the EBOOT.PBP to UPDATE.
    Then move it to your psp game folder.
    Then run it and DONT CLOSE THE PSP WHILE UPDATING BECAUSE IT WILL LEAD TO A PERMANENT BRICK!!!!! make sure you buy a USB as well.

    You could use network update or download 6.60 from http://us.playstation.com/psp/ but you will need a memory stick to do it .
    When you download the EBOOT.PBP , copy it to your PSP\GAME\UPDATE (all caps) folder on your memory stick
    From the XMB under Game-->Memory Stick run the updater and you will be on OFW 6.60
