    HI ABVANCE i have managed to do it follow this for how to do it
    go on youtube look at a video made by angelmikey511
    note the download is available on google just search for 3.52 m33 easy installer

    Thanks chris, what games are you playing now?

    I have 3.90 m33 on my psp

    Now I'm on 3.90 m33-2, wasn't difficult at all.

    I'm on 3.90 official.

    I may have a go later on with the custom firmware, fingers crossed.

    3.71 M33-4 here. If it ain't broke it don't need fixing

    3.71 M33
    Patapon works if you change UMD ISO mode from M33 driver to Sony NP9660
    (same for Simpsons, Harvest moon)

    No you wont, lol.
    Once your on official firmware you will be needing that Pandora Battery to get your PSP back on to custom firmware

    All details for ALL custom firmware can be found at [url]www.dark-alex.org[/url] seems only fair to direct you to the guy who actually makes it, not afterdawn who only post after-thoughts!
    If you like the firmware (and let's be honest who doesn't?) then maybe donate a few £££'s to the cause to help out D_A, Math, Jas0nUK etc

    Mike..

    with the custom firmwares u can now use firmware update instead of copying files from the p.c each time.

    yes you can
    done it few days ago without buying anything or having a phat psp
    you need to work a bit on the battery......... hardware speaking...

    Did have a go. thought I'd removed pin 5 from the battery and have all the reqired files on a 512 card.

    It still boots up normal, so I'll have another go tomorrow.

    If you have managed to get the battery part working look for something called "Pandoras box" I dont have a link at the moment sorry, that will have several file etc on it needed to create the memory stick, as you cant just drop the files on to it, it needs to be formated in a special way and have some partitions removed, I should be about later, I'll see if I can get you a link if you can't find it yourself,

    Yeah, but you are still using the files created by the Prometious team to get the thing to run unsigned code i.e the custom firmware installer, it wont run off the bat, as the original post I commented on "seemed" to suggest, from further conversation it is cleat stora does know what is going on just not completely :P

    Cheers. I'm using this guide here:-
    pspmod.com/for…tml

    One piece of advice after upgrading. If going from 3.4 to 3.71+, format your memory stick afterwards, and the corrupted data icons will dissapear if such is enabled in recovery mode. They didn't want to go in 3.4oe, but they do at 3.71m33-4 after a format.
