    Hi guys, I currently now having 3.03 oe-b, and now I have got a lot of games cannot play. I wish to change to 3.4 oe-a. I can't seem to find the link to do this. I wanna ask,

    a) Is the steps same for all the 3.03 oe series, oe-a, oe-b and
    oe-c to change to 3.4 oe-a? Is there a different steps to do so.

    b) Find out that in order to change to 3.4, need to downgrade to 1.5
    1st b4 doing so. Is it true?

    c) Or just change the kernel to 1.5 instead of 3.03?

    d) Can someone list out the steps or to provide the link? Thanks.

    I would recommend going to 3.52 M33-4 which will play all games out there plus it has a popsloader plugin that will play most PSX games.

    if your interested in installing the 3.52 M33 CFW then let me know and i will provide you the links and a mini=guide to do so.

    3.40 oe-a can do no-umd, but 3.52 m33-4 has a better no-umd compatability.

    3.52 m33 is practically an extension of 3.40 oe-a. it still has the same recovery menu, but has a umd ripper, and a new menu; the vsh menu. you'll be able to change the cpu speed, umd drivers, and usb characteristics (i.e. flash0/umd instead of memory stick) from the xmb.

    Some 3.40 OE-A users have had issues running some of the newer titles. Due to needing firmware higher then what 3.40 can support.

    It also has a popsloader plugin with pops versions from 3.00 to 3.52 that will pretty much play most PSX games.

    It has a UMD Riper so you can rip UMDs to ISO format on your MS.

    Just a few options that the 3.52 M33 has,

    My god, thats so much things. Actually I was told that if run on 3.52
    , MS will spoilt. Thats y i go for 3.4. In this case, if higher version of game was introduce, I might have to upgrade again.
    Btw, I oni use my psp to play game and nothing else. No movies, no songs, no pictures. Just games and save files. So cee43ja1, wat u told me bout the :

    (vsh menu, change the cpu speed, umd drivers, and usb characteristics (i.e. flash0/umd instead of memory stick) from the xmb.)

    I guess i know nuts bout them. I oso want to custom my psp, but I was scared to brick it.

    there's nothing wrong with 3.52 m33. i'm running it, and have no problems. if you want a fail safe, create a pandora's battery/magic memory card. if you brick, you'll be able to go back to 1.5.
    but if you follow larrylje's miniguide on 3.52 m33-4, you will not brick.

    it's not neccessary to use the usb port. if you have some way to transfer the files to your memory stick, there's no problems updating to cfw.

    but to create pandora's battery, i've only done it when using a usb cable, because the guide used the psp. you might be able to install without a cable if you use the easy installer, but i can't confirm that.
