    Try upgrading to 3.52 M33-4

    You can go to OE to M33 CFW but there have been issues with some doing it this way. I would recommend going back to 1.50 then up to 3.52 M33-4.

    If you don't want to go back to 1.50 and you want to just update from 3.40 OE-A then skip the recovery and kxploitpatcher steps in the mini-guide below.

    First off make sure your PSP is plugged in to the AC Adapter. Keep your PSP plugged in the whole time you are doing these steps.

    The PSP also needs to have a battery charge level of 75% or higher. To check the Battery level go to your system settings then battery information. It will give you the % level there. If it is lower then 75% turn off the PSP and let it charge till it is over 75% (I would recomend charging it to 100$)

    Now it is time to downgrade to 1.50

    Format your memory Stick using PSP system settings.

    Download this RECOVERY file.

    Extract the file which will extract a RECOVERY folder. Now connect the PSP to PC via USB. Place the RECOVERY folder in the /PSP/GAME folder of the PSP Memory Stick.

    Now go to recovery menu.

    Do this by turning off the PSP. Hold the power button up till the power led turns off. Now hold the R shoulder button down and keep it down while turning the PSP on.

    The Recovery menu should come up. When it does select the option "RUN PROGRAM AT /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP follow the on screen instructions and it will downgrade your PSP back to 1.50 firmware (After it downgrades you might get a blue screen with a bunch of text. If you get this screen just hit O and the PSP will reboot and you will need to enter your settings).

    Go to the System Settings then system information and make sure it says 1.50 before continuing below.

    If it says 1.50 then you can start the steps below. If it doesn't then you did something incorrect so try the steps above again.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Time to update to 3.52 M33 then 3.52 M33-4

    Format the Memory Stick using system settings.

    Download the 3.52 M33 CFW linked below. (I have placed all needed files in this download)

    3.52 M33 HERE

    Extract the file which will extract a UPGRADE_FILES folder. Inside this folder is kxploitpatcher, kxploitpatcher% and M33CREATOR.

    Copy the M33CREATOR, kxploitpatcher and kxploitpatcher% folders to the PSP/GAME folder.

    Go to Game Menu Memory Stick and run the KXploit Permanent Patcher (There will be a corrupt data file also here but ignore it because It is normal). It should run and say patched successfully and reboot back to the XMB(PSP menu).

    Now go to game Menu Memory Stick and run the M33CREATOR.

    When you run the M33CREATOR it will show parsing 150 writing 150 then parsing 352 writing 352 something like that. When it is done it should reboot back to the XMB.

    Now go to Game Menu Memory Stick and run the 3.52 M33 UPDATE that the M33CREATOR created. It will flash the files to the PSP when it is finished it will say press X to shutdown. Go ahead and press X after the PSP turns off turn it back on and go to system settings then system information and check to see if your at 3.52 M33 firmware. If you are then do the below steps. If you are not then you did something wrong and need to redo the steps above.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If your at 3.52 M33 reformat the Memory Stick again.

    Download the below 3.52 M33-4 update.

    3.52 M33-4 HERE

    Now extract the 3.52 M33-4 update.

    Drag the PSP folder that is in the M33-4 update you just extracted, into the root of the Memory Stick (Don't confuse the MP_ROOT as the root of the Memory Stick. The root is the directory that has the ISO/MP_ROOT/PSP folder).

    If you do it correctly it should ask to overwrite files. Choose YES TO ALL when it does. If it doesn't ask to overwrite files then you did it wrong. Format the memory Stick again and drag the PSP folder over to the root till it ask to overwrite.

    If it asks to overwrite then you can proceed to the Game Menu Memory Stick and run the M33-4 update. This will only take a few seconds to do. When it is done it will say press X to shut down. When it shuts down turn the PSP back on and go to system settings then system information and check to see if it says 3.52 M33-4.

    If it doesn't say that then redo the steps above again. If it does say it then reformat the Memory Stick 1 more time.

    You are now updated to 3.52 M33-4.

    You don't need to worry about the seplugin folder in the 3.52 M33-4 update if your not going to play PSX games. If you are then let me know and I will explain what that plugin is all about.

    The problem is this ISO requires firmware 3.10 to play. I don't want to upgrade my PSP to FW 3.10 since there is no downgrader for 3.10 yet and I don't know if I can use any PSP programs if i upgrade it into FW 3.10.

    I already checked the existing devhooks that are available and they still can only emulate FW 3.03.

    I also checked DarK_AleX custom firmware 3.10 OE-A but i don't know how to install it and I don't know if this program can load ISO or not.

    Does anyone know how to play games that required 3.10 FW without any update ?

    Thx in advance.


    was wondering if this makes sense????????????/

    Did you ignore my post? I gave you an answer.

    Besides 3.40 OE-A will be able to play the ISO if it only requires a 3.10 firmware. 3.10 requirement means the PSP has to have 3.10 or above firmware. 3.40 is higher then 3.10 so it should play fine. You must have a setting not set correctly or a bad ISO/CSO rip of the game.

    Update to 3.52 M33-4 by following the directions above. You will be able to play all PSP games that are currently out.

    3.52 M33-4 is coded by DAX so it is a reputable CFW.

    It is pointless to downgrade to 3.10 OE-A because you will only need to upgrade again when you try to play a PSP game that requires a higher firmware then 3.10. So save yourself a bunch of headache and update to 3.52 M33-4.

    Then follow the below suggestions to get your PSP ISO/CSO working properly.

    Make sure the title of the ISO/CSO is short.

    Example:

    Correct -- Fifa07.iso
    Not Correct -- FIFA-07-[PSP][EUR][www.torrent site.com].iso

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now right click on the ISO/CSO file and choose Properties. Make sure the Read Only and Hidden box is unchecked and the Archive Box is checked.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Go into recovery mode (Hold R shoulder button down while turning on PSP)

    Now go to configuration then to UMD MODE and keep pressing X till you see Sony NP9660 NO UMD.

    When it is set to the above setting go to BACK and press X.

    Now go to ADVANCED and press X.

    Go to ADVANCED CONFIGURATION and press X.

    Make sure all the settings here are disabled.

    Now EXIT out of recovery.

    Now try the ISO/CSO.
