    Hi, I am really new to this aspect of softmodding but not computer illiterate. I just aquiered a PSP the other day (PSP1001) with sony system software 3.40. I am trying to mod the firmware on it to watch vids, play ps1 iso's, try out some homebrew stuff etc. I have tried using the guide located here (wont let me post url...) 1 Stop Guide to 3.52 M33/3.71 M33/3.80 M33/3.90 M33 Custom Firmware + Updates & Add On's
    but when i get to the part where I have to run kxploit permanent patcher it is giving me an error after I try and execute it; Error the game could not be started (8002014c) . There are just so many results on updating firmware etc, that I really dont know where to start. I was hoping somebody could help me out here, thanks in advance for any consideration this thread may receive.

    You cannot upgrade from 3.40 to CFW.

    Upgrade to 3.50 and downgrade to 1.50 via the Lumines exploit, or find/make a pandora's battery.

    @ Canadianbacon; if you offended by the "canook" thing I'm sorry, its just how people in Buffalo refer to Canadians.

    Ok, thanks to no help from anybody here I figured it out. I went out and bought Lumines and performed the 3.50 to 1.50 downgrade. Thanks...
