Hi.
Does the file download at the top of the guide include all neccessary files needed to play back up iso games once the custom firmware is installed.If not please could you let me know what I need. Your guide is very thorough, a lot more than others ive seen, but the others mention things like popsloader etc.... do I need these, or does the download you suggest include all files needed. Sorry but am still new to this. Cheers

Hey, you can use this to downgrade a 3.71 Official firmware without a Custom Firmware PSP or 1.50? Also does it work on Vista?

Thats what the guide says!

All you can do is try it. Some have used Vista perfectly fine using this guide and others have had issues and ended up needing to use a PC running XP.

512MB to 1GB is recommended but some have used above 1GB perfectly fine. It just depends on the Memory Stick itself. All you can do is try it.

My son's PSP SLIM did this as well.

I did a google search of it and evidently this is normal and has no side effects at all.

I don't know how reliable that information is but it was the answer to all the threads I had read and looked up.

But I installed 3.71 M33 to his PSP SLIM after this had happened and everything went perfectly fine.

Just to put an another question at you directly, where does the NAND going to be a problem actually?

Is it when your have trashed your PSP with custom cintro themes etc, and it fails?

thanks:)

The answer is pretty much never, though, sometimes even the Pandora can't fix a brick and that's where NAND recovery steps in :)

If you just mess around with flash0 then your Pandora would easily fix it like normal.

That is the only link available. You need to figure out why your having the issue your having.

Do you think if you could use a normal Battery to install the custom firmware I would give options between a Datel Tool battery or hardmodding it? If you still don't get it then the answer is NO you can not use a normal Battery and Magic memory Stick to install the custom firmware.

It will install 3.71 M33-2 to your PSP (in a way it will downgrade from 3.80 official to 3.71 M33-2).


#20
when I start the psp with datel tool battery and memory stick, nothing shows but the green lamp -no menu, nothing. Any idea what I did wrong?
Maybe it was because I was unable to do that last step in DOS, because it didnt show. Why is that? Has it something to do with the fact I use Vista? Or did I misunderstand entirely, does this tutorial not work for official 3.52?

Answer would be much appreciated


EDIT

I tried with Windows XP, it worked fine then to install. Problem was Windows Vista. Great guide

I have followed the guide above
i have a slim with firmware 3.71
i get to the line that says
Just place the Magic Memory Stick in the PSP and then place the Datel Tool/Hardmodded Battery into the PSP and a menu should come up
i have purchased a Datel tool
I place the Datel and memory stick in and i get a green powered light (yes i did charge up the Datel), no screen, no menu
I have read in other posts re: slim has no screen but you push x or o or such to enable a firmware update and watch the corresponding power/accessing memory stick, lights to show that read/write is occuring. This does not happen either

any ideas?
#22
i have done exactly the same followed all instruction, bought a datel battery got the MC ready but the screen is blank with the green light....
please help
#23
Make sure your placing the memory Stick in first then place the Datel Tool battery in.

If this still doesn't work then try re-creating the Magic Memory Stick on a different Memory Stick.

Vista has issues with some when creating the Magic memory Stick. If your running Vista please try to find a PC running XP and use that to run the easy installer.

sometimes, placing the battery first, then the magic memory stick works better. that way, the psp will activate service mode first, and then load the ipl from the memory stick.

ps2: v7 scph-39001 - independence exploit - hdloader 0.8c - maxtor 300gb hdd
(+[__]%) psp slim ta-085v1: 6.60 PRO B10
wii (powered by bootmii/priiloader): 4.1u - d2x v10beta53-alt (base 56) - configurable usb loader v70r51/devolution r188 - wd scorpio black 7200rpm 320gig w/ ams venus ds2 enclosure

got a whole lot more to list . . .

I used to tell others to put the Battery in first then the memory Stick but allot of users had issues doing it that way. They had to add the memory Stick in first then the Battery to have the menu come up.

Either way they should try it both ways.

If it still doesn't work then try re-creating the Magic memory Stick using the same Memory Stick. If that doesn't work then try another memory Stick.

It is also recommended to use XP as the OS when running the easy installer. So if you have Vista and are having issues then Vista could be the problem.
