Straight and to the point. If you can't follow this then you are umm....you know what I will just hold my thoughts on that.

For installing CFW and unbricking!
PSPMod and i take no responsibility for what you do or if you result in a brick.
I've tried this many times on my old 2K i used to own, worked every time. If there's something you want added, just ask and i'll add it.
If your having trouble making a Magic Memory Stick and about to give up, just download and unpack these files to your mem stick.
A pandora battery.
At least a 512MB memory stick.
A HACKABLE PSP. Check to see if yours is here.
& preferably broadband. (This package is about 100+ MB)
Once you have unpacked the contents of the .rar to the root of your mem stick, turn off your PSP, take out the battery.
They don't go in MP_ROOT, they go one back from that. Like this: (Ignore the egghunt and h.bin files. I have a 3K)
Not in 'MMS Files' folder.
Hold the button suitable for you:
X = 1.50 Firmware (PSP 1000 series ONLY)
O = 1.50-3.40 mix (Both PSP systems, 1000 & 2000 WITHOUT the TA-088v3 mobo. Also this is the best option for most people)
Triangle = 3.40OE (PSP 1000 ONLY)
 = 3.60M33 (PSP 2000 ONLY, WITHOUT the TA-088v3 mobo)
Pop in your pandora battery while holding that button.
Once you have booted your PSP, check the firmware, make sure it's one of the above. Then go to Game > and run the 5.00M33-6 updater, once it finishes you have custom firmware!
If you're having trouble booting into the right firmware with the right button, all i can say is:
Hold the button before putting the battery in.
Make sure you do have a hackable.
This works on any PSP 1K and 2K that is confirmed hackable.
BUT, the PSP 3000 CANNOT use this, so don't even ask.
And if you use your pandora as a normal battery, this is for you. When turning on your PSP with these files on the mem stick and your pandora in, the PSP boots into the firmware that's installed to the flash!
I don't understand where i extract the file too. You said the root if the mem stick but in my root i have a mnvo1 and a anv01 folder which of these folders should i put it in. Other than that what is suppose to happen when i hold the button and turn it back on?
hey umm... do we hold the button down for what we want?
Like i was in 5.00m33-6 and now since im bricked... (fully), can i just hold X and install 1.50OFW?
Omg, YOU ARE A LEGEND... THANKS!!!
its not going.... just tryed, i cant get the menu to show up.... i put my mem stic in, with all files on the root of it, and then poped my mem card in, held O and put pandora in.... nothing happened....
ps. Is it caz im fully bricked?

Have done everything you said. Even with the Pandora in and holding O ( I have a PSP 2000 ) It still doesn't load up any menu. The screen stays blank/black.
PSP Root shot. Tell me if anything is wrong.

Redid it using Photobucket
and I have 5.51 installed right now. Does that mess up this guide?
