thanks for the reply the psp with gen3 has that option but does not update even with it disabled. the m33 ones do not have that version.txt option.

What is the error that you are getting on them? (should have asked first)

ok on the m33-2 trying to install update from memory card or from a umd game just after you hit accept an error pops up stating that memory or game umd cannot be read. 80010005

the hen one bricked.. dunno what happened after I enabled and disabled the version.txt it seems it bricked. I have a pandora battery but my magic stick got lost 10 years ago

The stick is easy enough to make on PC but the issue here is the GEN one has its version.txt in flash set to 9.99 iirc and the 3.71 ones might have an upgrade bug but I don't remember what 3.XX firmware had it.

There are fixes for both these but I don't remember them but google should have them somewhere.
Fix for the GEN one is to edit the txt in flash to say 5.50 so you can update iirc.
