New Background Features in Firmware 2.0

With Firmware 2.0 (a.k.a. System Update 2.0), Sony introduced the ability to change the
background color to any of the colors mentioned in Table 3-2, although it’s possible that future
firmware versions may let you choose any color. You can even set a photo to be your background,
or wallpaper, image if you have images on your Memory Stick.
To change your background color, open the PSP Navigator and select Settings, then Theme
Settings, then Theme, and set your background color by pressing X on the color of your choice.
If you change the setting back to Original, it will go back to the monthly color changing

X. Select Yes when your PSP asks you if you want it to set the image as the wallpaper. Then
press O when it says “Save completed” and your wallpaper is set.
To disable your wallpaper, open the PSP Navigator and select Settings, then Theme Settings,
and then Wallpaper. Change the option from Use to Do Not Use to turn off your wallpaper.
