Hi, I'm a very frustrated user due to the problem I'm having with M33. I've been using Dark Alex's 3.40 OE-A CFW for quite some time and just recently switched to 3.52 M33. The installation was painless, as I followed the instructions word for word. However, when I tried to run 3.52 update #2, my PSP would stay in the loading state (the white screen with the PSP logo) and remain there until I manually do a hard reset. Thinking that it was just a corrupt file, I tried to run my other apps. To my horror, they all remained at the loading screen. Mortified, I downgraded back to 1.50 and started from scratch. Each time I installed 3.52 M33, and tried to run my apps, I would get the same result as the first time. I must have tried a dozen times using different combinations based on what I've read in the forums, but to no avail. I've tried reformatting my MS, changing from 1.5 kernel to 3.52 kernel, swapping flash0 files, etc. I just don't know what to do, or what the explanation is for this problem. It must not be that widespread as no one seems to be experiencing the same type of problem as I have. It's weird because Dark Alex's 3.40 OE-A works well with my PSP. The reason I need 3.52 M33 is because I need the sony no-umd driver since my PSP stopped reading UMD's. If there is some way for this driver to exist on DA's CFW I would be more than happy to install it. Can anyone shed some light on what is going on and maybe a possible fix? Thank you and I appreciate any help.
