    Is it safe? Last time i did my psp almost bricked so i had to recover it, then it started to show the 80020148 error when i tried to launch games. I would do the config fix, but it would never stay, so i went down to 3.10 oe. Did i do something wrong during the upgrade? I remember when it said to manually restart i just turned it on regularly if that affected it in anyway. So im just wondering cause i wanna go to the latest cf but do not want to screw up my psp again. Thanks

    firstly what firmware do you have at moment?

    if you have custom firmware then its all safe to upgrade

    if not then still safe just be more carefull AND DONT UNPLUG THE POWER!!!

    once installed

    turn psp all off
    turn on holding (R) trigger

    input these settings

    PSP RECOVERY SETTINGS

    \CONFIG
    Skip SCE Logo = ENABLED (Optional)

    Hide Corrupt Icons = ENABLED

    Game Folder Homebrew = 1.50 KERNAL

    Autorun Program At /PSP/GAME/BOOT/EBOOT.PBP = DISABLED

    Use NO-UMD = : ENABLED (If Game Wont Work Then Disable)
    : DISABLED (If You Have A UMD In The Drive)

    Fake Region = DISABLED

    Free UMD Region = ENABLED


    \ADVANCED
    Plain Modules in UMD/ISO = ENABLED

    Execute BOOT.BIN In UMD/ISO = DISABLED

    Use ISOFS Driver Also In UMD-Inserted Mode = DISABLED



    then make sure you do the following

    KEY : ms0 = main root of memory stick

    GAMES (ISO/CSO) = ms0/ISO - FOLDER ONLY!!
    GAMES (PSX EBBOTS) = ms0/PSP/GAME - FOLDEER ONLY!!
    HOMEBREW APPZ OR CUSTOM FIRMWARE UPDATES = ms0/PSP/GAME150


    hope this helps

    let me know

    i always do manulaly as then u know whats being installed and its just as easy

    also when u press x i belive it will complete turn off yes.

    if u dont see a blue screen called recovery menu then it didnt turn all way off so just hold off for 10 seconds and then turn on holding (R) trigger

    does your 3.03 oe-c work with the newer games because my 3.10 oe-a will only show the 80020148 error on parappa the rappa and some other new games. any way to make it work or is it a matter of upgrading

    that error code u got is coz u not set ya psp up properly or got it in the right folder,...

    GAMES (ISO/CSO) = ms0/ISO - FOLDER
    GAMES (EBOOTS) = ms0/PSP/GAME - FOLDER
    HOMEBREW APZZ = ms0/PSP/GAME150 (IF USING KERNAL 1.50)

    if you used my settings then the above will work fine

    thanks for the replies. still thinkin of if i should upgrade to 3.40 oe-a. my friend says the only plus of having it is only if you have a ps3 which i dont. whats better, to stay with 3.1 or upgrade? and RIPPERD thanks for the site link that place has great games.

    3.40OE-A is the best for new game releases (only that need 3.40 firmware)

    otherwise 3.03OE-C is better coz u can do more with it (customize XMB and more homebrew appz work better)

    i have GTA:LCS and the LCS Cheat Device works fine with 3.03OE-C but freezes psp as soon as it loads the game with 3.40OE-A

    get 3.03OE-C if u dont have games that require higher that it

    get 3.40OE-A if you need the higher support..

    but dont bother wit 3.10OE-A or A2 and the same with 3.30OE-A or A2 just leave them to collect dust on ya hard drive. lol
