    I've upgraded my psp from 3.80 m33-5 to 4.01 m33-2 instead of reinstalling it because of the risk of bricking it...... but with no luck.... it still shaking... and the worse part is that after upgrading to 4.01 m33-2 my saved game cannot be load... the game only state: Failed to load game data.... and when i try to browse the saved game inside that game it only sees EMPTY.....
    WHAT THE!!! so I have TWO problems now ... :(

  • hizuka007 Jan 17, 2009

    hmmmm... the settings are all set correctly..
    I would like to discuss my problems here so that anyone that has the same problem as mine can read it... :)

    here's the settings of my psp:
    Configuration ->
    -Skip Sony Logo (currntly: Disabled)
    -Hide corrupt icons (currently: enabled)
    -Game folder homebrew (currently: 4.xx Kernel)

    -Use M33 Network update (currently: enabled)
    Hide PIC0.PNG and PIC1.PNG in game menu (currently: diabled)

    Run Program At /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP *I think this is for 3.6 or 3.80 and it doesnt work in 4.01

    Advance ->
    -Advance Configuration ->
    -Plain modules in UMD/ISO (Currently: Disable)
    -Execute BOOT.BIN in UMD/ISO (Currently: Disabled)
    -Toggle USB (flash0)
    -Toggle USB (flash1)
    -Toggle USB (flash2)
    -Toggle USB (flash3)
    -Format flash1 and reset settings

    CPU Speed ->
    -Speed in XMB (Currently: Default) *i've set it to default but nothing happens
    -Speed in UMD/ISO (currently: Default)

    Registry HAcks ->
    -Button assign (Currently: 0 is enter)
    -Activate WMA

Please turn on your PSP and once in the menu mode press select to enter your XMB menu and be sure your settings are something like this (sorry but our tester psp is currently disassembled) =

CPU Speed - Normal/default
Game Clock - Normal/default
USB - Memory Card
ISO Video mount device - None

You can email me if you want the exact list. We will have our tester PSP in one piece again by tomorrow. Also, if this doesn't fix your PSP try reinstalling your firmware.

    The PSP is like a computer. You are supposed to make back ups of all of your files using your computer before making any changes. I apologize for not mentioning this. I hoped that you would know this as you seem like you a fairly expienced PSP hacker and a smart person.

    Please double check your CPU speed to make sure it is set to normal. I have experienced the same issue that you have and when I checked the XMB settings some of the settings were changed thus causing the PSP to ''shake'' violently. We had to change the settings all back to default and then select the ''restart device'' option.

    You can also turn off your PSP and turn it back on under recovery mode and check all of your settings are where they are supposed to be in both the configuration and advanced configuration areas. Even one wrong setting can cause issues. Also, if you would like I can completely diagnose and repair your PSP. Email me if you are interested. Otherwise, I am very confident that you can repair it by correcting all of your settings and then resetting your PSP.

    Please keep in touch with me and keep me posted. I am determined to help you fix your PSP.
