I would recommend watching this site they are working on a downgrader for the 3.51 firmware. If you can downgrade back to the 1.5 firmware you can then install one of the customized firmwares that expands your PSPs functionality as well as fixes Sony problems.

Up grade

The process of upgrading comes with a few essential requirements. If you are looking to upgrade using the services of the PC then you must have prerequisites like, a PSP with a battery pack, a minimum of 20 MB of free space on the Memory Stick, and a good Internet connection. You can also use a USB cable instead of the memory stick. Once you download the upgrade on the PC, the next step would be to transfer the firmware upgrade onto the PSP. This can be done using the USB cable or the memory stick. Users must insert the cable of the Memory stick in the PSP and start updating. For this, users are required to select the appropriate option from the home menu and then press the required button to start upgrading. At times, the whole process will get confusing, if you have not differentiated the various folders on the memory stick or the PC. The best way to avoid this is by storing the downloaded firmware in an aptly named folder.

A word of caution: Store the data in the correct location. If not, then there is a chance that the PSP system will not identify the data that is updated. Also, make sure that the battery is fully charged before use. Furthermore, an AC adaptor must connect the PSP to an electricity point. While upgrading the PSP, there must be no stoppages in the process. If the upgrade stops midway, it might just damage the PSP.

Upgrading you existing PSP is very easy. A person with a limited knowledge of using a PC can accomplish this task successfully. It is of paramount importance that you upgrade the PSP on a regular basis. As new games with better graphics enter the market, you must make your PSP compatible for the same But, this is not restricted to games alone. Videos, and music demand better picture and sound quality respectively. This can only be achieved by getting new and better upgrades for your PSP.

New game wont start

This is terrible to say, and I feel bad for you. This sounds as though your PSP is Bricked. Tell all your friends if they are asked to upgrade by a game, plug up your PSP to the power cord and keep it charged during the upgrade needed to run the new games. If your power fails during the upgrade, you will BRICK your PSP. Contact Sony, its their fault.
