  1. OK, put the 550.pbp that was included in the xgen zip into the mem card’s root area. I put the eboot.pbp into the folder psp/game/update. The system brings up the start screen for loading the updater, but when I hit start nothing happens and the system shuts down on it’s own after a few seconds. I have a fat psp running fw 3.71 M33-2.

    So now how do I get this to work? Need some help please!

  2. look for the version 2 of this application. I dont have any time to post it now... il do it after 12 hours... try going to iv seen that it is on its front page.
