    Did you update to 3.50 yet?

    If not create a folder and name it UPDATE then place the 3.50 EBOOT renamed to EBOOT.PBP into the update folder.

    Now drag the UPDATE folder to your /PSP/GAME folder on the PSP memory stick.

    The directory would be ms0:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP

    Now go to the Game menu memory Stick and run the update.

    If it doesn't work tell me what the error message is or what the problem is.

    After you get upgraded to 3.50 I will help with downgrading.

    First make sure your battery level is at 75% or higher plus make sure your PSP is plugged into the AC Adapter.

    Format your memory Stick via System Settings.

    Download this 350_DOWNGRADER file HERE.

    Extract it (a PSP folder will be extracted).

    Drag the PSP folder to the root of your Memory Stick (The root is the main directory that has the PSP/MP_ROOT folder in)

    If you do this correctly it should ask you to Overwrite choose YES TO ALL when it asks this. If it dosen't then format your PSP Memory Stick again and try draging the folder again. (All your doing is replacing the PSP folder that came in the 350_DOWNGRADER with the PSP folder on your PSP)

    Now insert the Lumines UMD game and start it.

    Press START when it tells you to press START.

    It should load the save game, then the screen should fill with a light blue color and then restart the PSP (When the PSP restarts or if it doesn't restart go to system settings and check and see if system software says 3.50HEN)

    If it says 3.50HEN then proceed below. If it doesn't say 3.50HEN then try doing the steps above again till it shows 3.50HEN.

    When it says 3.50HEN go to Game Menu Memory Stick and run UPDATE X.YZ

    If you have a TA-82 or higher motherboard it will need to patch the board so it can be safely downgraded. It will not downgrade to 1.50 till it is patched. So if you get a message that says it needs to be patched then agree to it. It will patch it then reboot back to XMB. You will need to run the UPDATE X.YZ again after it patches the motherboard to downgrade to 1.50 firmware.

    If you do not have a TA-82 or higher motherboard then it will automatically downgrade to 1.50 firmware.

    Once finished the PSP will ask you to press X, after pressing it will reset itself.

    Now when booting up the PSP again you will probably get a blue screen with a bunch of TEXT on it. Just press O if you do and then the PSP will reboot and you will have to reenter your settings.

    After you do that step you should now be at 1.50 firmware. Go to System Settings and check to see if you are.

    When you get to 1.50 let me know I will then give a guide to updating to Custom Firmware.

    Read the full thread. They are already at 3.50 and the 350HEN Lumines seemed to work better then the 3.11 from noobz. I have tried both ways myself. Had a heck of a time getting the PSP into HEN when using the 3.11 downgrader.

    Format the Memory Stick again via system settings.

    Now connect PSP and PC via USB.

    This isn't that hard to understand.

    Drag the PSP folder that was extarcted to the PSP Memory Stick in the directory that has...

    MP_ROOT/MUSIC/PICTURE/PSP Folders.

    All your doing is overwriting the PSP folder that is listed on the Memory Stick with the PSP folder that was extarcted.

    Follow these steps...

    3.52 M33 HERE

    3.52 M33-4 HERE

    3.52 firmware HERE

    1.50 firmware HERE


    Download the 3.52 M33 CFW linked above. Extract the file.

    Download both the 1.50 and 3.52 firmware. You need to re-name the 3.52 firmware to 352.PBP the 1.50 firmware to 150.PBP. Then add them to the M33CREATOR folder.

    Now copy the M33CREATOR folder and the kxploitpatcher and kxploitpatcher% folders to the PSP MS directory of ms0:/PSP/GAME folder (If you don't have that folder directory on your memory stick then format the memory stick via System Settings so they are created).

    Now go to Game Menu Memory Stick and run the KXploit Permanent Patcher. It should run and say patched successfully and reboot back to the XMB.

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

    After you run the M33CREATOR it should reboot back to the XMB. It should have created a 3.52 M33 update which you need to select in the Game Menu Memory Stick.

    It will flash the files to the PSP and you should be at 3.52 M33 firmware. If it is then format your MS.

    Now extract the 3.52 M33-4 update.

    Drag the PSP folder that is in the update M33-4 into the root of the MS overwriting the files when it asks you to. Now go to Game Menu Memory Stick and run the m33-4 update. This will only take a few seconds.

    After the update is finished check and make sure it says 3.52 M33-4 for firmware. If it does say 3.52 m33-4 then format the MS 1 more time.

    You are now updated to 3.52 M33-4.

    You are sure your at 1.50 system software?

    If you are then you should have no issues with the above steps.

    Make sure you place the 150.PBP and 352.PBP files in the M33CREATOR.

    Now drag the 3 folders kxploitpatcher, kxploitpatcher% and M33CREATOR to the /PSP/GAME folder.

    It kinda sounds like your not downgraded to 1.50 yet. Go to system settings then system information and check the system software.
