    I'm using 3.30oe-A now and wish to upgrade to 3.40oe-A. Just want to make sure on something. Do I need to change the kernel to 1.50 in the recovery menu before upgrading? Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm confused about what that kernel option is for. By default it is set to 3.30. I noticed the upgrade is to be placed in the game150 folder. SO do I need to change to kernel 1.50 to execute the upgrade from that folder?

    Thanks in advance.

    no. just put it in the game 150 folder and run it. set your psp to default settings in the system info menu i am not sure why but i read somewhere to do it and it wouldnt hurt just to be on the safe side. i also format my memory stick before any upgrade downgrade also.

    Thanks for the reply. Could you tell me what the option to switch kernels would be used for. I read about it somewhere before but can't seem to find it again.

    i am not real sure i have never really used it. i did once change it to 1.5 kernal and then you can run homebrew from just the GAME folder and not the GAME150 folder but that is not really useful as then none of your iso will work because they need higher firmwares to run. so in short no i dont know what it used for. something i obviously dont need. sorry i couldnt help further. :)

    No prob. Thanks again for all your help. I was just wondering. I have not needed it yet either (everything I do runs fine) just thought it might be important.

    it could be if you do certain things to your psp but i just pretty much play games , movies and the odd homebrew and you dont need it for that so its probably for something more complicated i will leave to the people who know what they are doing. LOL :)

    I ran the update now at 3.40oe-A. Thanks for all the help.

    From what I can figure the kernel option is just for the GAME folder. It sets what homebrew will run from that folder, but you can just put it in the other game folders (150 or 340)for the same version homebrew. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I don't know, because I can. Just to run the newest firmware.
