    Hey nice guide. but i need a lil help. I am running version 3.52m33-4. I want to upgrade to 3.71m33 so then i can run 4.01m33(the lastest i believe)

    This is the steps i did.. which obviously doesnt work
    1.)So i dragged the Update folder(with the Eboot and umodule in it) into the F:/PSP/GAME Folder
    2.) Then i dragged the Eboot.Pbp from the 3.71 updater to F:/PSP/GAME Folder also.
    3.) So i loaded it on my psp. And it loads fine. Then it tells me that "this program requires 3.52m33-3 or higher to run" then it restarts itself.

    And i have 3.52m33-4!!!

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Please Email me at mgltrrs@hotmail.com or IM me on aim at leugim321 Thanks in advance.(please dont reply to my question in this tread, because i will probably never look at it again.) Thanks again

    * Have fun on 3.52 Custom Firmware!

    I have followed your exact instruction upgrading my 1.50 to3.52.
    When I go to the system info it is still showing version 1.50. I was able to play iso game with fastloader before, and now I cannot do anything other than playing the actual umd game. (I have created an ISO folder under PSP and place iso game into the folder, yet no luck)

    I also cannot access the Recovery mode. Do I have to upgrade further?

    Please help.

    once this is done format your memstick to give you the folders needed

    How to Install M33 Updates: (M33 Firmwares only)

    ALL M33 UPDATES CONTAIN THE PREVIOUS UPDATES. (E.G. Update 4 contains update 1, 2, and 3.



    * Download the update 4 here . http://dark-alex.org/
    * Place the update folder in the following directory; 'X:/PSP/GAME150/'
    * Run the update from your XMB, under GAME > Memory Stick.

    There you go 3.52M33-4
    now on to 3.71m33
    you will need
    3.71 M33: http://www.psp-vault.com/UpDownload-req-...ls-lid-2140.psp
    and 3.71 Update file: http://www.psp-vault.com/UpDownload-req-getit-lid-2123.psp
    MAKE SURE YOU KERNEL IS SET TO 3.52
    you can do this in recovery mode
    start the psp up whilst holding the R shoulder button down,go to configuration find the option for kernel and make sure it's on 3.52

    Installation instructions:



    First method for both psp, the prefered when possible:



    Requeriments: a fat psp slim with 3.52 M33-3 or 3.52 M33-4. Previous versions of M33 won't work,

    due to a bug that affects them and OE; or a psp slim with 3.60 M33.



    - Copy the UPDATE directory into /PSP/GAME/UPDATE and copy the EBOOT.PBP of the 3.71 Sony updater

    there but with name "371.PBP". Note: the program will not even show if you copy it to a different folder than that.



    - If you are in the fat psp, make sure you have configured the psp to run the game folder in the 3.XX kernel.



    - Execute the program, it requires 78% of battery. If you have idstorage corrupted due to a downgrader, the program

    will ask you to correct it automatically so the update can continue.



    - Press X, and the Sony updater will begin. Sit and enjoy while Sony code installs 3.71 M33 :)



    - When finished, the updater will ask you to reboot (pressing X or O). DO IT. Do not skip this step

    shutting down the psp by yourself, or you'll end with a brick.



    - You should be now in 3.71 M33

    All you need to do now is install the updates
    so here we go

    installing the 1.50 kernel patch (150 kernel addon 2)
    #download the 150 kernel addon 2 from here http://dark-alex.org/
    #download the 150 update from here http://rapidshare.com/files/67857715/163_EBOOT_1.50.zip
    #rename the 150 update eboot to 150.pbp and place it in the root of your memstick
    #put the kernel 150 addon 2 update folder in GAME folder on memstick
    #scroll to game on xmb and launch the programme
    #thats it you now have the 1.50 kernel

    installing the 3.71m33-2 update
    #download the 3.71m33-2 update here http://dark-alex.org/
    #copy the update folder to GAME folder on your memstick
    #scroll to game on you xmb and run the programme
    #congratulations you are now on 3.71m33-2 enjoy:)

    installing 3.71m33-3 update

    Installing 3.71m33-3 update
    #download the 3.71m33-3 update http://dark-alex.org/
    #copy the update folder to GAME folder on your memstick
    #scroll to game on you xmb and run the programme
    #congratulations you are now on 3.71m33-3 enjoy

    installing 3.71m33-4 update

    Installing 3.71m33-4 update
    #download the 3.71m33-4 update http://dark-alex.org/
    #copy the update folder to GAME folder on your memstick
    #scroll to game on you xmb and run the programme
    #congratulations you are now on 3.71m33-4 enjoy


    for installing 3.71m33-2 on slims
    universal unbricker
    you can get it here http://dark-alex.org/ its called
    >> El Despertar del Cementerio v3<< this will install 3.71m33-2 straight to your psp

    or if you prefer there is a universal unbricker v3 easy installer here
    http://projectpsp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=303 this will put you straight onto 3.72m33-2 (both fat and slim)

    Installation:

    - If you have already a pandora ms, don't do this part. Otherwise,
    format an ms using c+d mspformat or any other tool that allows to move
    partition to ~250kb from first sector

    Remove ms, usb and connect again usb and ms.
    Make PSP and PSP/GAME dirs.

    - Copy despertar_cementerio to PSP/GAME/

    - Download 1.50, 3.40 and 3.71 update eboots and copy them to ms root with
    150.PBP, 340.PBP and 371.PBP names.

    - Use the app under a cfw with 2.x or 3.x kernel (be sure that kernel is
    selected on recovery to the correct one (2.x or 3.x))

    - Once finished, u will have msipl.bin on root. If you already have a pandora
    ms, you don't have to do this step (ipl doesn't changes lol), otherwise,
    use c+d msinst to install ipl on ms; or use dd command from unix, or any
    hex-edit program to write on sector 16 on the physical drive.

    - Now you can delete 340 and 150 PBP's, as they won't be used more; but 371.PBP
    will be used for unbricker, so don't delete it.

    - Now you have an universal pandora ms ready to go, and you just need a proper
    battery. If you have 1.50 kernel access, use c+d tool. Otherwise, use corly149 tool.

    Battery and ms will work on all psp and slims to this date.

    Unbricking:

    - Press X to install 3.71M33.

    - Press O to install original 3.71 (rest of the process as the X option)

    - Press [] to dump nand to nand-dump.bin. When done, psp will auto shutdown.

    - Press L+R+HOME+start to restore nand from nand-dump.bin

    This proccess is very dangerous, and you should *just* use it if it's your
    last chance to get it working.

    This is a physical restore process (not a logical one), and will try to make
    a 100% exact clon of the dump.

    If you are working with a dump that isn't yours, you will get either a brick
    or a corrupt idstorage, depending on the firmware.

    If while you are restoring your psp have got any damaged block more than
    when you dumped it, you might also get a brick, depending on what block is it.

    Works for both PSP and PSP Slim.

    When you have a PSP that supports Pandora battery it's irrelevant what firmware you try to downgrade from.

    I see. I am getting a new PsP and I guess I will see what I am getting. I used to have a PsP 1000 and modded it a few years back, then I dropped it and broke the screen :(
