    Anyone know if the new Patapon is working on 3.52 M33-4? And if it's not, what firmware do you guys recommend me updating to next?

    I really haven't followed the PSP custom firmware progress since 3.52 M33-4. So I'm not sure what's working, or what's the best right now.

    Thank you for any and all help.

    EDIT: Answered my own question. The game stays at the first loading screen on 3.52 M33-4. You need at least 3.71. I"m just going to up to 3.90

    Patapon requires 3.71 or higher.

    Since you have a phat, you will get pretty much no benefit from 3.90. All it adds is Skype for Slim users.

    I'm very eager to play this game. I'd love to hear some impressions from you all.

    BTW, I have one CFW PSP and one unit with Official Firmware. This way I dn't have to worry about firmware conflicts and newer games. There are still plenty of good PSP games in the pipeline.

    Isn't that redundant? Are there any reason why you wouldn't install custom firmware?

    Well, I'll admit I'm a bit of a newb on this whole subject. I have only recently downgraded my first PSP.( a launch model.)

    I'm also a bit hesitant to tamper with my beloved PSP Slim.

    My Slim 3.90M33-2 didn't load Patapon till I changed the UMD driver back to normal first. It was bugging my why it stayed stuck on the first loading screen for ages.

    Great game though, I'm just starting out.

    I just grabbed a copy of this game, so it sounds like I'm going to have to update my PSP.

    I'm currently at 3.40OE (I think) what are the steps to get it up to a newer firmware release? Can I just go straight to 3.71?

    Why would you not update it?

    Well, if you have a CFW PSP then OFW from 3.3 up (I think) doesn't let you upgrade.
    So if Dark_AleX was to stop (dread the thought) and no-one else continued... you'd be pretty much stuck.
    So if you have 2 PSPs, one with CFW and one with OFW you're safe.

    Couldn't you just use pandora to restore it back to 1.50?

    you need to install 3.52 M33-4 first or else it wont install
    then you can go to what ever firmware you want
