Copy the 'M33Update4' folder to 'X:/PSP/GAME150'.Execute the file showing '3:33:33 - March 33' on your PSP.Read and agree with the license, then press X to flash the update.
Installing 3.90M33Extract the '3.90M33 Update Files'.Connect your PSP to your PC via USB cable and do the following:
Copy the UPDATE folder found in the extracted RAR file you downloaded, and copy it to: 'X:/PSP/GAME/'.If your PSP is Wi-Fi enabled you can skip the next 2 steps as the installer will download the 3.90 Update EBOOT automatically.Rename the 3.90 (download above) from 'EBOOT.PBP' to '390.PBP'.Place the 390.PBP in the UPDATE folder. Do not overwrite EBOOT.PBP that already exists in the UPDATE folder.Exit USB Mode.Make sure your PSP is using the 3.XX kernel:
Turn your PSP off completely (hold the power button for 10 seconds).Hold R and turn your PSP on.A menu will appear, go to Configuration.Under 'Game Folder Kernel' change the kernel to 3.52 if it isn't already.Run the application from your PSP's main menu under GAME > Memory Stick.Do not turn your PSP off, unplug the AC Adapter while your PSP is updating. Doing so can render your PSP useless.Once the update has finished it will ask you to press either X or O, do so or you could brick your PSP.
