PSP firmware 3.40 oe-a upgrade/install guide

2 07 2007

Here is the guide some of you have been waiting for!

To upgrade you must have either 1.50, 3.02 oe, 3.03 oe, 3.10 oe or 3.30 oe firmware on your PSP. If you are unsure of what firmware you have go to system settings on your PSP and then go to system information, it should say there, if you don’t have one of these firmwares please go to my PSP downgrade guide Here. UberGaming take no responsibility for anything happening to your PSP and you install the 3.40 oe-a firmware on your own accord.
Okay, now for the guide.

First, download the 3.40 oe-a firmware files from Here. Then download the 3.40 and 1.50 firmware EBOOTS Here and Here.

1. Place the oeupdmaker and oeupdmaker% folders from the 3.40 oe-a firmware package to the GAME folder on your PSP (It can be found in the PSP folder that is in the root of your PSP memory stick) and then rename the 3.40 firmware EBOOT to 340.PBP and the 1.50 firmware EBOOT to 150.PBP, this MUST be done, then copy these two files to the ‘oeupdmaker’ folder.

2. Now disconnect your PSP from your computer then navigate to the GAME tab on your PSP and run the 3.40 oe-a update maker, this will create a file called DATA.DXAR in your oeupdmaker folder. Now connect your PSP to your computer again and place the 340oeflasher and 340oeflasher% folders from the 3.40 oe-a firmware package into your GAME folder and place the DATA.DXAR file from the oeupdmaker folder into the 340oeflasher folder.

3. Now disconnect your PSP from your computer and navigate to the game tab on your PSP and run the 3.40 OE-A flasher and follow the on screen instructions. Once it’s finished your PSP will now be running 3.40 OE-A! To check, go to the settings tab>system settings>system settings.

Now you can run homebrew, PSP games and ISO’s (UberGaming do not recommend the use of ISO’s unless you own the game) from the memory stick option in the GAME tab on your PSP!

Thanks for reading! We hope to see you again!

Dan.

You can download them at PSPiso.com (you have to register first) and you just put them in a folder called ‘ISO’ which you have to make and put the folder into the root of your memory stick,the ISO’s will come up in the GAME>Memory stick tab on your PSP. Installing XMB’s on 3.40 oe-a is very risky, if you want a guide just type XMB install guide or something on google.

Yes it can :) for ISO’s, make a new folder in the root of your memory stick called ‘ISO’ and put the .ISO’s there. You can then run the ISO’s from GAME>MEMORY STICK on your PSP.

I haven’t tried upgrading from 3.10 oe-a myself but I think it would work if you upgraded to 3.30 oe-a then to 3.40 eo-a, just look on google for a guide.

I hope this helps.

i just wondering i have a 1.50 version right now. So, I could use that tut to upgrade from 1.5 to 3.40oe-a right?

And Do i need any emulator or anything install to play game?
And to play a game, i just put a ISO to the ISo folder Than i just click on the iso by going to the game tab/memory stick and play right?

Yeah, just follow the instructions and you should be fine.

Nope, you don’t need any emulators, just put the ISO’s in the ISO folder which you have to make and run them from memory stick in the game tab. There is a guide on how to play PS1 games on PSP on the site aswell so check that out if you want.

my current firmware is 3.40.. is it ok to upgrade it to 3.40OE-a? Thanks..

I’m sorry but you can’t do that, you’re gonna have to upgrade to 3.50 then downgrade to 1.50 to upgrade to 3.40 oe-a, there is a guide on this site to do just that. =]

I have upgraded to 3.40e and I can play iso’s fine, but when I try to play my emulators (in raw form I should add not iso) it says the game could not be started. Should I also change them to iso format and put them in the iso folder? Please assist.

yes, it can play all games that have come out so far, and some games that are yet to be released. DevHook is a PSP application that is used on 1.50 firmware to emulate higher firmwares so that you can play games that were released after 1.50.

You have put the emulator/s into the GAME folder in your PSP yeah? Also, some emulators are incompatible with ‘oe’ firmwares.

Ha, yeah =] you have to use our ‘3.50 downgrade guide’ to get to firmware 1.50, it tells you everything you need to know there.

Please don’t type in ALL caps it’s so annoying. ha. So you have no UMD in the drive? Put one in then! I don’t know why it’s not coming up in recovery but just go out and buy a really cheap UMD, it’ll do no harm =]

9 07 2007
9NIX

sorry bout the all caps. i mean on the main menu of the recovery mode (when u hold R after you’ve powered on the psp) i go to the config menu and there is nothing there. I mean when i try to go that option of using no UMD to load the game it’s not showing, theres suppose to be at least 6 options i can choose from on the config menu but it’s blank and the screen freezes and i have to reboot the psp. Can i downgrade the 3.40oe to 3.03 or 1.5 agian and reinstall 3.40oe?
I can play older games like prince of persia, hotshots four and stuff like that but the new games like harry potter and hot brain it won’t load past the intro screen of the game. any ideas?

9 07 2007

yeah look for a 3.40 oe to 1.50 recovery guide then upgrade again

I upgraded my psp from 1.5 to 3.40 OE-A …now how to play iso games,,i mean where to insert games to play,,and where to insert video to play,,

i am asking this becoz there is no folder for video nor for iso game

N i need a umd disk to play downloaded games?

plz let me know in details,,,i am just got stuck after getting proparly ubgraded to 3.30 OE-A

20 07 2007
doitinavan

Its simple,

Make two new folders in the same page as your PSP folder and your MP_ROOT folder. Rename the folders “ISO” and “VIDEO”.

Your ISO’s go directly into the ISO folder and you can access them by selecting the game folder on your actual psp menu.

Your video files (mp4) go directly into the VIDEO folder and you can access them from the video folder on your psp menu too.
Please note that some video files will only work when put into one of the folders within the MP_ROOT folder.

In order for the ISO’s to work, you WILL need a UMD in the drive!
All you are doing is tricking the psp into thinking that the UMD is actually the ISO you are loading from the psp.

Hope this helps

My current psp firmware is 3.40 OE-A. I made a folder named ISO in my memorystick root and copied an .iso into it. When I go to my memory stick on my psp, I can clearly see the .iso file, which loads a beatifull picture of the game with some text, like it does with demo’s. But when I press x to start the game, my psp shows the psp-logo then goes black and doesn’t do anything. Only thing I can do now is remove my battery to restart my psp, normal manual restart isn’t possible.

Could somebody explain to me what I am doing wrong and what I can do to play the .iso in question?

Thanks already!!!!

To some who have asked the question:

If you are running 1.50, then you place oeupdmaker folders in the /psp/game folder on your memory stick. If you are already running OE and are simply upgrading to a higher version, then you need to place the oeupdmaker folders in the /psp/game150 folder. There is also a really good readme file contained in the .rar package.

Hope this helps!

29 07 2007
Tony

To add on to my previous entry, the same is true for the 340oeflasher folders as well. They will need to go to the /psp/game folder if currently running 1.50, or /psp/game150 if currently running a previous version of OE.

HElp pleaSE!
I have PSP 1.5 and I installed 3.40 OE-A… I made a Folder by the name of ISO and put and iso game in it… but it was not playing it not even showing the game icon in game/memory stick in the PSP.. so i decided to delete that iso and put another one BUT by mistake I formated my memory stick…. Is it still possible to make another an ISO folder again and put iso file in that or do I have to install the whole thing again because as i formated the memory stick the file DATA.DXAR has been deleted but still the console is using 3.40 OE-A firmware…

@ sultan

after installing 3.40 oe-a format your memory stick. then folders will automatically be created. you will see an ISO folder there. paste the game with has an iso/cso format. there you go,

Thanks for the guide, it worked great except for one thing…

my psp prompted ” press O for a recovery” nothing else… i thought it was a procedure , i proceed to pressed O .. until now my psp still cant start up

This really needs to be in all-caps, and I only knew to do it because I read about it elsewhere first…

PRESS YOUR BRIGHTNESS BUTTON

And for those who don’t know where ISOs go, it’s in “/ISO” in the root of the stick, NOT anywhere in “/PSP”!

Also, how to call up recovery menu: when doing a power-on, hold both the R button and the power button until the recovery menu appears.

i have a 3.03oe-c firmware and I want to upgrade to 3.40 oe-a. is it possible to have a direct upgrade without downgrading first to 1.5? It is becuase there are new games that only play on 3.40 oe and cannot be opened in 3.03 oe-c like transformers etc……

Thanks

Hi,

I have a PSP with 2.50 firmware. I want to upgrade to 3.40 however I am told I need to downgrade to 1.50 first. However to do this I need to know someone who already has 1.50 firmware is this correct?

Hi! i updated two psps to 3.40 OE-a just as this guide instructed and on my first PSP i was 100% successful! Everythings works from ISOs to homebrews…however on the second psp the firmware says 3.40 OE-a but i noticed that it skips the SCE logo when i turn it on….i am aware that this can be desabled on recovery mode but i did not disable it manually and when i try to go into configurations in recovery mode the screen becomes blank and shuts off in a few second

I believe this is what is causing it to not run the games i put into the card..is there anything i can do?..i tried repeating the 3.40 OE-a set up but i get the same thing every time..i also tried starting from the beggining and upgrading to 3.50 to do the downgrade exploit but when i try to run the 3.50 update it says “unable to run game” (DADADADA) something like that..is there anything i can do?

17 08 2007
KojiKun

oh and by the way Sunny there is no downgrader for the 3.51 FW at the moment

KojiKun:

Sounds like you may be seeing the screen brightness glitch that’s popular with 3.40oea. Basically, I think it only affects those PSP’s which do not have a TA-085 motherboard.

Most users found that when starting some ISO, or homebrew games, their screens would go black. Plugging in their power, and then unplugging it would correct the issue and their screens would be visible again.

What was actually happening, was that the screen brightness is different on a non TA-085 board, and you have to simply press one of your brightness up/down buttons for your screen to come back on.

Give it a try and let me know…

IN RESPONSE TO: a.k (20:56:50) :

Hi, i currently have 3.03 OE-B firmware on my psp, i followed the guide correctly but when i press the 3.40 OE-A update maker after having copying the oeupdmaker and oeupdmaker %, in which the oeupdmaker folder has 340.PBP eboot and 150.PBP eboot, it loads up, the pretty white psp screen comes on, and then it says the game could not be started. (8002014C) can you help me out with that please.

ANSWER: I had the same problem – literally all you have to do is follow the instructions above but put the files in the GAME150 folder rather than GAME and it works a treat! I’ve just done mine! Good luck!

When upgrading, make sure to place the oeupdmaker files in a game150 folder within the psp file (if you are running on oe or se). it will not work if not in a game150 folder

Turmeric is not only a powerful antioxidant, but it is also an anti-inflammatory, which is being studied in relation to stopping or preventing
some cancers. If you would like to learn more about the nutritional supplements I
personally take that contain turmeric extract,
visit my website below. This is absolute fantastic news
for the whole world and should cause everyone to include this delicious
spice to their palate.

The Japanese Banana diet works well, but
honestly it is not what helped me lose over 60 pounds
safely in just a few months. It contains potassium
that we need in order to get rid of water fat. Luckily Asian women get thin and burn fat easily, even after giving birth, and do it
in a healthy way that anyone can learn.

coconut oil uses

Due to this, in order that one can relieve from the nasal allergy torturing, he or she
must have a strong immune system to defend the foreign substances that will enter
into their body. These LCFAs are difficult to digest; they stress the digestive system and put additional
pressure on the liver and pancreas. People try many things to get rid of scars
and stretch marks, and even go as far as surgery.

turmeric

Your next step is to include more of it in your cooking or get it from supplements.
Research studies on the health benefits of turmeric both on humans as well as animals are
numerous. John’s Medical College, black pepper increases the bioavailability of turmeric by 2000%.

This is exactly why you need to clear your face completely before you

beauty products with harsh chemicals, petroleum-based components, and artificial ingredients then an
all natural virgin coconut oil product is perfect for you.

Coconut oil for skin health will make your skin smoother and softer than you could have dreamed possible.
