Hi, I am new here, so I need your guy's help. Well I have been reading some threads that relates to my question, but I followed dirrections and I guess I wasn't successfull. What I need is step by step instructions, because I have always been seeing errors. If you can help me put backgrounds into my PSP, that would really help. I stayed up till 4 o'clock in the morning. I tired like 20 times, and still failed. So if anyone can help me, I would be ready to listen. I would like to communicate with aim because I don't have to keep logging on and off with afterdawn. My aim Screen name is; filipinozrule21. Thanks again for your patience and I hope someone can help me out here, I am going crazy. Thanks

ok here is the problem with doing the background hack

1.the bitmaps must be labeled in this format


2. the bitmap cannot exceed 150k in size

3. the bitmap must be in 320x230 must not exceed this or your psp will be dead

I think the problem is that I need two memeory stick. Because I have been reading that you need two memeory sticks... But I only Have one; which is 32MB. So do I need to buy another memory stick to put backgrounds onto my PSP...Thanks


Check your PSP's firmwear, because PSPersonilize dosent support 1.51, and 1.52

when i launched the pspersonalize it would go to a black screen that would say something to the nature of "flash to 07.bmp?" and i would press the 0 button to save it, and it went to the finished screen, then i would wait a few secs and then either turn it off...and when it loaded it would have the background displayed.....MAKE SURE you have changed the file name from "****.BMP" to "the number of the monthe, i.e. 07.BMP"

One thing I found out is that you have to download the Imige from PSPersonilize instead of just click "Save Picture as"

not really...i just right click on the pic and "saved" to "my pictures", then when i wanted to use it i went to that file and renamed it to the number for that month..then moved it to "pspersonalize" but i did see that some sites said to download the pic, but i clicked on them and nothing happened that's why i just saved mine...also a lil' reminder you may want to go to and get the original background file..just in case you need to reset those files..i downloaded them and left them on my comp for safe keeping...also if you want to free up some memory card space without losing any of your saves, you can just move them to your comp. so you can have them for later and free up room for new games, saves, pics, music, videos, and backgrounds..i know everyone probably already knows this but just a lil' reminder on it...also on a side note i started a thread to find sites for homebrew games and for backgrounds if anyone has any good sites please right now there are only three so hopefully we can get some is the link
holla, ;)

What is bad that could happen to the PSP if you try to change the backgrounds?
why dont you just go on to update your psp to 2.00 firmware that firmware lets you do alot of stuff like internet change backgrounds and a whole lot of other stuff
firmware 2.00 came out in japan
