Just because it says download to PC doesn't mean you can't download them to your Mac just download them and then connect your PSP via USB and move them to it.

it doesn't allow a download to the MAC, the MAC immediately saves the file as a text document so i cannot do this way, believe me i tried, that is why i was asking someone in the community to help out?

Does anybody remember the Dime bar adverts?

With who are you referring to? If its me read the other post again - when i tried to save the file from the site, because the format isn't recognised by the OSX it opens the file as a text/ word document which is no good to transfer onto the PSP.

I just put the cookie theme on my PSP and it looks good. I'm glad I can still use my own background.

I have custom themes on 3.40 OE-A and I bet they look a a lot better than the Sony ones! Sounds like a ploy to stop people using homebrew!

The homebrew ones most probably looks better, but atleast it is a semi-decent update. Now all that is needed is a screenshot/recording feature and I'm happy.

Captain Obvious strikes :p

The reason they make the official firmwares, including extra stuff, is to pull people away from Homebrew, so they dont brick the PSP with it.

If you think about it though, Sony makes no Money from the firmware upgrades, so its like little gifts.

And think of custom firmware like a Curse...

if they learn a little bit about homebrew etc, before they do it, they will be fine, anyway if a brick, Pandora to the rescue

I know it is a bit obvious but somebody had to say it. You can brick your PSP whilst updating to official firmwares and from my experience it is easier to brick updating to official firmwares as three friends of mine have bricked updating to official firmwares. However, out of my friends who have updated to Custom Firmwares (about 7 of us) none of us hve bricked it, and if we do there is recovery mode for a semi brick and a pandoras battery for a complete one.

You need to save the file onto your desktop somewhere and then drag and drop over to your PSP instead of just opening it directly, CTRL+Click and Save Link As should do the trick.

And if you dont have Pandora, or you have a slimline PSP, which it wont work in?

I rest my case in said regard

I know it is a bit obvious but somebody had to say it. You can brick your PSP whilst updating to official firmwares and from my experience it is easier to brick updating to official firmwares as three friends of mine have bricked updating to official firmwares. However, out of my friends who have updated to Custom Firmwares (about 7 of us) none of us hve bricked it, and if we do there is recovery mode for a semi brick and a pandoras battery for a complete one.

I know you can brick with official FWs too, but from what I understand, its easier to brick custom FW.

We had better stop this talk though, not for my sake, but for the topics sake.

Lets just all get along, ok...

Other way round if you follow the instuctions! Recovery mode is there if you semi-brick anyway and a pandoras battery will fix a full brick (I believe)

Got it sorted though as a kind community member emailed them for me big cheers to AsREDaS:gr8:
