    First of all, you're going to need a few things. These are a memory stick, a reasonable knowledge of custom firmware's recovery menu, and CFW 5.50GEND3. Also, you'll need to download a plugin.

    Step one: Insert the Memory Stick Duo Pro into your computer using USB Connection or use of a adapter.

    Step two: Download this.

    Step three: Before you do this, backup your memory stick. Open up the program you have just downloaded. Now, where it says: "destination folder", select your PSP memory stick. Click install, and then wait for it to install on your PSP.

    Step four: Now that you have done that, go on the PSP's recovery menu (shut off your PSP, then hold the R button while turning it on).

    Step five: Go to "plugins" and select "cxmb.prx [VSH]"

    Step six: Get the theme that you want, and place it inside PSP -> THEME.

    Step seven: Install it by going to "Theme settings" and selecting it.


    Hope this helps.

    CXMB is the same for version 3.71 up to 5.50, but you can only install CTF themes for you specific CFW version.
    Don't make the mistake of trying to run a theme that's not made for your firmware, it can cause a brick.

    WTF! Really? Well, then. Just have to be careful when picking out CTF files.

    I'm pretty sure CTF themes were made specifically not to brick your PSP. They don't touch the flash according to the readme in CXMB.

    Yeah, uh, some CTF themes flash themselves.
