To make a short story long...haven't used my PSP in years. Got a PS3 recently and a new game came out I wanted to play, so dusted it off and wanting to install the 3.8 M33.
Following the instructions that I need the 3.52 first, and the 1.5 before that to go to the 3.52. I'd forgotten at first that I used that old WAB app to trick the PSP into thinking it had 2.0 on it, so loaded that back and changed the value back to 1.5. This might be where I'm having the issue, because I'm not 100% sure I had 1.5, but I think I do since I found some old files that had some old 1.5 KXploit stuff, and I still have a homebrew on my stick that will currently play.
So anyway, did the steps to go from 1.5 to 3.52, ran kxploitpatcher, then ran the 3.52 M33 Creator, that seemed to run fine, did the load/write of 1.5 and then load/write of 3.52 without complaint. But when I look at the system info, it still says 1.5 (also still missing things like the wallpaper option and WPA).
What should I try next?
