    how many batteries do you have? its always good to have 2 (1 to make into a pandora)

    There are no risks with a pandora on a phatty, pandoras can be used to unbrick so whats the worst that could happen?

    you will also need a magic memory stick, if you dont know how the whole thing works, basicly the pandora boots the psp from specific files on the memory stick, as opposed to the memory that the firmware is in (on the psp motherboard).

    for making a magic memory stick i would use rains ultra lite mms maker, as it pretty much does it all for you, and from what i hear works on all windows pc's.

    to avoid any complications when running this, to runit right click and then run as admin.

    there is a download and a good write up all about it on
    [ dl . qj . net ] just search for it on the site .

    sorry i couldnt post a link but i need 15 posts for that.

    Yesterday I did a network install on my psp of firmware 5.51. It is a psp 1001. I had it for a few years and never even use it. Before I upgraded it, it had 2.0 or 2.3 firmware on it. I upgraded it because I saw my girlfriends brother psp and all his cool features and had no idea that his has custom firmware on it. 5 just thought that he had the latest updates from the network itself. So now that I been reading these psp forums and mod sites I then realize that I'm pretty muched screwed if I want to play homebrewed games and run different apps on it unless I get a pandora battery and make a magic memory stick correct? The psp 3000 are the oes that can't be downgraded correct? Anyone have any suggestions or any help on this to which custom firmware I should downgrade too once i get the pandora battery?

    if you really want cfw on your psp, but don't wanna be bothered with installing it yourself, go to craigslist classifieds: jobs, housing, personals, for sale, services, community, events, forums and find a modder (it should only cost around $10, and a pandora battery will cost 6.99 so its pretty much a deal for you)

    He was able to mod his psp 1000 with a Pandora and MMS. 1k's and hackable 2k psps can be modded with a Pandora and MMS no matter the firmware they're on.

    Any 1k or hackable 2k requires a Pandora + MMS past 5.03 ofw. Although the Pandora can be used at earlier firmwares, it is not required.

    Any non hackable 2k and all 3ks can be somewhat modified with ChichHen at or below 5.03 ofw. Above that though, they are s.o.l
