    When I installed 3.40 OE the very first thing I did was go into recovery, advanced, toggle usb flash0, and coppied everything into a folder I made in my "psp files" folder named "firmware backup 3.40 OE". It has proved very usefull to me as I have f___ed up many times and just saved time by deleting everything from flash0 and then copying back the original (don't overwrite b/c sometimes it doesn't work right) instead of going to 1.50 then back up. Anyone else done this?

    EDIT: Oh yea. It might be a good idea to lock the buttons so you won't accidentally turn your psp off. I did once and it scared the living shit out of me, but luckily recovery mode had already been re-flashed so my psp's ass was saved.

    I only made a backup of the vsh>resources folder because thats the only one I edit, besides the fonts folder.

    i got backups of:

    3.03 OE-C
    3.30 OE-A
    3.40 OE-A

    question: could you delete all of your flash0 and copy 1.5 files to it and format your flash1? would you end up with a 1.5 psp?

    I have dumps of every CFW I upgraded to, its always better to be safe by coping your flash0 then sorry when you fuck up and get bricked or have to downgrade to 1.50 and back up.

    sounds like you should test your theory and then report back.
