    Hey,
    I 'm kinda new at posting. My thead name should be "GRAMPS". I started computers when BASIC was the "in" thing and Comodore VIC 20 was THE computer to have. I have been out of the computer arena for quite some time and I hope all you technoGODS will forgive me for my ignorance if my questions seem trivial or mundane. I have a psp slim Daxter edition. I just finished installing the 5.02 gen-A firmware and cannot get most of the applications to work. Ultimate psptube works, but the ones I want -mainly office and edu apps don't want to comply. ( ProgramLua, bookreader, installotron, pda, etc...) all want 1.50 or 1.0. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I unzip the downloads and put the extractions in the game file. Maybe there is a compatibility issue or I have the wrong firmware. - it appears to be working fine.
    Anyhow, if there is anyone who would like to help me out, that would be great. I also want to learn about creating my own programs. I maybe old, but the ticker and thinker still work.
    Thanks

    you cant run 1.50s but should be able to run 1.00 versions.reason behind this is only phat psps can use 1.50,unless you use time machine,but i wouldnt trust time machine 1.50 on a slim anyday considering the slims originally were made around the 3.xx age and anything lower would be confused jargon to them personally

    I tried putting instollotron 1.0 in the game file and I get corrupt date message and cannot play game message. I get the same problem with all the programs I listed above

    it cant be a 2 folder file if you got a slim.also i dont even think installatrons supported nomore as it was a server based homebrew.

    try not extracting to psp but drag and drop the files into the game folder.personally i would try to look for 3.xx homebrew or higher but thats just me
