    Turn PSP on hold R a recovery menu shpuld appear. Download the 3.40 oe-a in my sig, then unzip the files with winrar u should see 2 folders one with a % and one without a % rename the one with a % to Recovery in Recovery mode enable USB connect to computer, drag the folder Recovery that u just renamed to PSP/GAME/ then in recovery mode go down 2? to run program at PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP it will reinstall the PSP custom firmare.

    Backup your flash0 items from recovery menu and install these there. Its a backup of my flash0 files from my 3.40 PSP.

    core2kid,
    Flash0 is copy-righted material, illegal to distribute. Take it out immediately, or you'll get Afterdawn into trouble.

    gangsta00,

    Stop tricking people into sending their psp to you! It won't work.

    Why doesnt anyone ever backup their flash when they start messing with XMB themes?? Doesn't it say to do so specifically in the readme?

    Like I said before, if you have any thing useful to say, post on the thread. THIS way is faster. What do you got to hide, eh?

    ...that was just one example of many-I have seen it also..where you just jump into threads telling people to PM you out of the blue..SO unless you have something productive to add to a thread, its better that you just dont post period...here is another example...Need I go on?

    Thanks Deez.

    @gangsta00,
    I have yet to see a helpful post from you, so I doubt you have any useful inputs. All I hear from others are you asking people send their psp to you to unbrick. Whether you are trying to make some money not, doesn't matter. This is considered SPAM/SCAM. So I say just knock it off. If you really want to help, do it right!

    I have removed the flash0 files.Sorry, I did not know that it was copyrighted. I would assume that if it was copyrighted it would be illegal to modify.

    Hi All! I'm totally new @ the PSP and was wondering how do I back up my files before proceeding with alterations? Thank you.

    well, provided you are using custom firmware-and have your PSP connected to your computer-the first thing you need to do is turn your PSP off completely (hold power switch up for about 5 seconds) Then while turning it back on, you want to hold down the R trigger button and it will boot up to a blue screen with a menu. Scroll to "advanced" and select that-you will then be presented with 3 options:
    advanced configuration ->
    toggle USB (flash0)
    toggle USB (flash1)
    You want to select "toggle USB (flash0)" it will bring up an explorer window on your computer..Copy all of the folders from flash0 to a safe place on your computer-Remember, this is the heart and soul of your PSP, so dont EVER delete any files from those folders-Its ok to replace by overwriting if you are planning to change your themes and/or icons, but NEVER delete you can render your PSP unusable by doing so. And by backing up your flash folder, should anything go haywire from a bunk theme or icon set-you can just drop the original files in the folder and its back to good.
