    it says the contents of the MS_ROOT folder. put the PSP folder inside the MS_ROOT folder on the root of the memory stick, overwriting the PSP folder already there

    i have a question..on the instructions in the 3.50 downgrader it says to delete <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE after i've run the psp update to 3.50..am i supposed to delete all the folders or just the update? if i do delete them..what folders should i have left?

    and i also dont understand when the instructions says to copy the contents of the folder MS_ROOT from the 3.50 downgrader ZIP to
    the memory stick

    after installation i formatted my card, you copy the psp folder in the msroot folder for the downgrade to the psp folder on the memory card and replace. hope that helps, iv done this and it works fine

    thanx that did help a lot
    but now how do u do this:
    Unzip the 1.50 update to a temporary folder. Rename the EBOOT.PBP to
    UPDATE.PBP and copy it to <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE/ . DO NOT
    OVERWRITE PSP/GAME/UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP!

    do i download the update then rename is to that..then put it in the update foler?

    what do they mean by do not overwrite the eboot thing?

    extract the rar to a tempfile on pc or laptop eg desktop, rename the eboot.pbp (sorry cant remember extension letters) to UPDATE.pbp and paste that into the update file on ur psp, just the renaming means it does not replace the existing on ur psp. One thing i didnt do at first was press X when lumines starts. dont let the demo start up
