    Hello, I am new to the psp modding scene, I have modded quite a few consoles but never a psp. I understand the tutorials pretty well there is just one thing I dont quite get. If I mod my psp using the pandora battery and magic memory stick method, the custom firmware in the MMS being 5.0 do I first have to upgrade my firmware on my psp to 5.0?

    not sure I understand the ?, but look once you have installed the cfw if its higher than 3.7 than you can use the network update

    the custom firmware doesn't get installed in the mms, it gets installed in your flash0, its like the internal memory on the psp.

    do you have custom firmware installed? if not, what original firmware do you have?

    what model is your psp? slim or fat?

    No there is nothing like that.
    Your cfw is in no way related to ofw you had before that.You can install any cfw you want.Latest is better.

    Welcome to pspmod , as per your question, make sure your psp is a model 2003 < below, otherwise you might run into problems into getting CFW on your psp, as for the oficial firmware if its over 4.0 ( i think no sure ) its harder to CFW your psp, so its best to not update it.

    Get your facts right before trying to help people.
    CFW is not firmware related and psp 200x x=region code.

    My firmware as of now is 3.03 and it is a psp fat. So does the Hacked firmware have to match the original firmware?
