    You need to update to 3.71 M33 first then 3.71 M33-2. Go HERE for a guide on upgrading to 3.71 M33-2 + 1.50 ADD ON-2.

    Stay at 3.52 M33, its more stable and has support for most homebrew and plugins. Plus, you need the 1.50 addon to play 1.50 homebrew if you get 3.71 M33!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3.71 M33-2 + 1.50 ADD ON-2 is just as stable as 3.52 M33-2.

    Plus most plugins and custom themes have been ported for 3.71 M33-2 already and homebrew isn't an issue if you have the 1.50 ADD ON installed.

    As to wichozzz suggestion you don't have to install the 1.50 ADD ON first. Think about it. 3.71 M33 was released first before the 1.50 ADD ON was released so it is some other issue (It shouldn't make a difference but make sure the kernel is set to 3.52 in recovery menu for the GAME folder).

    Follow the guide I linked to above you should have no issues.

    Thats the thing, MOST plugins and homebrew, and I use the older plugins and homebrew on my psp mostly (before it bricked) but either way, I'd stay at 3.52 M33 cause there more support for it.

    wichozzz never gave you a link to files plus the advice he gave wouldn't have mattered in your case. You do not have to install the 1.50 ADD ON first before installing the 3.71 M33 custom firmware.

    @tehjoker

    What plugins and homebrew do you use?

    I use some of the old 3.03 oe-c plugins that havent been ported to 3.52-3.71 m33, which oddly enough run fine on my psp. As for homebrew, everything has been ported over to 3.71 so w/e.

    You cant install themes without flashing, I dont know if m33 supports .ptf files which are official Sony themes.

    The PTF files go into the /PSP/THEME folder. You should already have it. If you didn't then backup your memory stick to PC then format your memory Stick via System Settings to make sure you get all the correct folder directories made. Now drag your backup files back to Memory Stick.

    After you place the PTF file in the /PSP/THEME folder go to Theme Settings and select the theme from the list.

    If you want to flash the flash0 then go HERE and follow the guide on how to back up your flash0 files. Then download 3.71 M33 compatible themes to flash to the flash0.
