One Piece Fan Power!

I just recently had a get-together outing with a bunch of friends and I had a great time with them. After the trip, we decided to stay overnight in one of my friend’s house to expand the reunion(LOL!). We stayed up late in the night playing some computer games.

This is my friend:

His house is very spacious compared to mine that’s why I felt like exploring the place. But One particular spot that truly caught my attention is his wide collection of figures displayed inside two large cabinets. Ever since I met him, he was already a die hard fan of the famous anime “One Piece” and I was amazed to see that his collectibles are all characters from One Piece, he really proved how much he loves that anime.

First and Second Cabinet

Most of the items are in complete set because he often buy in sets. Since he is one of my wealthiest friends, he also has some of the really expensive stuffs in a larger scale displayed in his collection cabinet and I was able to get some nice shots of those goodies:

Although he already filled his cabinets with those figures, his collections aren’t really that much compared to other professional collector’s in fact, I myself has more collectibles than him so you must be wondering why I got amazed with his collection? well, yes it’s true that I have more collectible items and consists of different categories, But it took me more than 10 years to pile up all my collections obviously because of financial issues. My friend’s case is different, he bought about 95% of his collections including the two large cabinets under a few months(approximately 5 months or less) and the remaining are gifts from his friends. How nice is that? He sure is rich. He doesn’t even buy in single piece but sets so each purchase is always in thousand Php and for me those numbers are astronomical, maybe after a few months his collection will be more than mine.

Updating PSP into CFW 3.90 M33-2!

I’ve been having so much fun playing and exploring my PSP that’s why I always bring it with me wherever I go and I couldn’t imagine a day without it because for me, it always saves the day whenever I’m bored in the office and when the bosses are not around(LOL). Aside from gaming, video and music, I was able to install some apps which provided me with more features.

But since I’m a bit newbie with updates, I never tried to modify or install a new firmware(note: I’m using a custom firmware for my PSP that’s why it’s risky to update compared with official firmware) and I had my first PSP pre-installed with custom firmware. But out of curiosity, I installed the latest version 3.90 M33-2 from dark-alex’s website and fortunately I successfully installed the firmware.

Before installing, I searched for instructions available from the net. some are simple, and some are complicated so I will post here a simplified direction in updating custom firmware:

Warning: A failed update may result to Crashing your PSP system making it bricked. You are doing this at your own risk and I am not responsible for any loss or damage that may occur during the process.

Requirements:

Steps:

  1. rename the official firmware filename “EBOOT.PBP” into “390.PBP”
  2. copy the UPDATE folder from 3.90 M33-2 into PSP/GAME directory of your memory stick
  3. copy 390.PBP into the PSP/GAME/UPDATE” folder along with 3.90 M33 in your memory stick.
  4. run the update from your PSP.
  5. press L + triangle until you see “Veryfing 390.PBP”.
  6. follow the instructions displayed by the installer.
