    Copyright from qjnet because i noticed that too many new user dont know how to use the Recovery Mode...
    If mods thinks i shouldnt post this..then just delete my post..thanks..

    Guide to 3.0x OE-x Recovery Mode

    To enter recovery mode:
    -Hold the power switch for 5second..(to shut down)
    -Hold the power for 1 sec(to power on) + R Trigger(R button)..pressing untill you see the recovery mode

    Note:if you have a TA-082 motherboard..you will face a brightness bug..
    If you cant get into the recovery mode(blank screen after pressing R..dun panic..press the brightness button..then you will get your recovery mode..but make sure u are in CFW(custom firmware)..official firmware will not work..
    Recovery should now load..


    Recovery Mode





    Toggle USB.

    This will toggle normal USB mode so that you will be able to transfer files to and from the PSP.

    This is NOT the USB to flash0/1 option.


    Run Program at /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP

    If you ever want to downgrade your PSP back to 1.50 or whatever, this is the option you would use.

    Simply download the Generic Downgrader, set up all the files correctly, then drop all the files into the RECOVERY folder.

    Then select this option and it should start normally.

    NOTE: You can actually use any program in the RECOVERY folder. It doesn't have to necessarily be a downgrader.

    For example, you can place the pspfiler eboot into the Recovery Folder to re-flash individual files.

    Usually, there is a "flasher for recovery folder" in every release but I haven't seen one for a while. It is found in the 3.02 OE installation package and is safe to use on 3.03 OE.


    Exit

    Leave Recovery Mode and reboot. It saves changes upon exit.

    Recovery Mode --> Configuration




    Skip SCE logo
    Skip the Sony Corporation logo when coldbooting (turning on) the PSP.


    Hide Corrupt Icons
    Hide those pesky corrupt icons shown in the GAME --> Memory Stick area.


    Game folder homebrew
    This is where you change the kernel that is loaded.
    Options
    3.40 Kernel -- Only homebrew located in the GAME150 folder will be able to launch. Also load certain demos.
    3.30 Kernel -- Only homebrew located in the GAME150 folder will be able to launch. Also load certain demos.
    3.10 Kernel -- Only homebrew located in the GAME150 folder will be able to launch. Also load certain demos.
    3.03 Kernel -- Only homebrew located in the GAME150 folder will be able to launch. Also load certain demos.
    1.50 Kernel -- Load homebrew from both the GAME and GAME150 folder.

    This doesn't mean that you have all kernel in your psp..This means that if your psp is 3.40OE-A you will have 1.50 kernel and 3.40 kernel only..you cant get others..
    Use NO-UMD
    Enable this option to load/play ISOs without a UMD disc.

    There are compatibility problems with this option.

    Certain games will crash at certain places. Others won't load at all.

    So if you have the UMD disc (which so many of you claim) USE IT!


    Fake Region
    Change the region code of your PSP.
    The only noticable difference that I know of is the change in Japan.
    If anyone else knows any differences between the regions please tell me.

    Regions
    Japan -- Enables the PTV option under the Network Icon
    America
    Europe
    Australia/New Zealand
    Russia
    Free UMD Region
    Enable it to play Video UMDs regardless of region code.

    Recovery Mode --> Advanced




    Toggle USB (flash0)

    It turns on USB mode but with flash0 loaded instead of the memory stick.

    With this option you should be able to quickly and easily change files on flash0.


    WARNING: Do not delete folders such as flash0:/kd, flash0:/kn, or flash0:/vsh/module.
    Deleting those folders or files within them can cause bricks which may damage Recovery Mode.


    Toggle USB (flash1)

    Enable USB mode with flash1 mounted instead of the memory stick.

    Again, you will be able to write directly to flash1 from your computer.

    System critical files aren't usually kept here but take precautions as if it was flash0.


    Try to safely eject the PSP from your computer on Mac and *nix systems or "Safely Remove Hardware" on Windows computers just to make sure errors aren't produced.

    Note: This is where you delete your config.se if you face any problem in 3.40OE-A



    Recovery Mode --> Advanced --> Advanced Configuration





    Plain Modules in UMD/ISO

    Enable this option if you are not able to load prxs during gameplay.


    Execute BOOT.BIN in UMD/ISO
    No idea


    Use isofs driver also in UMD-inserted mode
    Again no idea. Any help would be appreciated.



    CPU Speed






    Speed in XMB

    Set the speed in the XMB, VSH, PSP main menu, etc. Its all the same place


    Speed in UMD/ISO


    Set the CPU Speed while playing a game.


    Possible CPU speeds for both options
    222 MHZ
    266 MHZ
    300 MHZ
    333 MHZ (MAX)
    Recovery Mode --> Plugins




    This is where you enable/disable your various PRXs.

    In order for your plugins to be listed in this menu they must be in at least one of these txt files which are supposed to be in ms0:/seplugins. Yes seplugins. Not a typo.

    * vsh.txt - XMB, PSP main menu
    * game.txt - UMD/ISO
    * pops.txt - PSX emulator


    Plugins are shown as:

    plugin name/location | area to be loaded | Status

    A prx can be listed in multiple txt files.


    Recovery Mode --> Registry Hacks




    Button Assign

    Change the confirmation button in the XMB and Games.

    Options can only be Cross (X) or Circle


    Activate WMA

    Activate WMA playback without connecting to the Internet


    Activate Flash Player

    Activate Flash Player without connecting to the Internet


    TIPS AND TRICKS
