    I currently have a 3.71m33-2 and it works perfectly fine, byt the way i downgraded it myself...because of that I got a good reputation at schhol because I know how to downgrade psps. So my good friend gave me his psp to upgrade to 3.71m33-2 and i did successfully, but then he said he wanted the applecor theme no matter what or he wont pay me...so i google applecor theme 3.71m33 and i find a converted applecor theme...only problem is that it goes in the flash0 insted of psp/theme so i pasted it into flash0 and overwited some important files..and now his psp goes to a black screen when started***but it still can go to recovery mode***When I run the recovery boot from the recovery menu, it says error missing _____ flash file. The blank is actually a file name that I dont feel like typing in. What should I do

    i hope you backed up his flash0. you'd just copy it back to the psp.

    if you didn't, then you will have to redo the whole downgrading process with pandora's battery

    NO! do NOT use your flash0 files. it will result in another semi-brick.

    as for pandora's battery, you can use one battery. but remember to backup the battery EEPROM before converting.

    are you running windows xp or vista? vista is not compatable with the installer.

    try using the easy installer, provided HERE. you don't need to redo the memory card, just run the easy installer.

    @naqiraza

    Next time your on 3.71 M33-2 and get a semi-brick like that use this RECOVERY folder HERE.

    Go to Recovery and Toggle USB place the extracted RECOVERY folder into the /PSP/GAME folder. Then go down to RUN PROGRAM AT /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP and it will recover the PSP back to 1.50 firmware (This will only work for FAT PSP running 3.71 M33/M33-2 custom firmware).

    If your going to mess with flash0 files in 3.71 M33-2 custom firmware make sure your backing up and flashing the flash0 files properly. HERE is a guide on how to backup your flash0 files properly. You will need to do these steps as well when transferring a custom theme to flash0. Make sure the custom theme is 3.71 M33/M33-2 compatible.

    @runezerg

    are you applying the 3.71 M33 custom theme correctly? You need to make hidden files and folders show when flashing a theme in flash0.

    If you didn't then go HERE and follow the guide on how to do these steps.

    Make sure the Apple Cor is the 1 that is compatible for 3.71 M33.

    Go to the site I linked to above. It also has 3.52 M33-4 custom XMB listed. You might have to go to page 2 or 3 on the XMB section to actually get to the 3.52 M33-4 compatible themes.
