    Get a spare battery and do the pandora battery mod and then you format a spare memory stick using Pandora's Battery Gui and presto.

    you can't run the pandora INSTALLER on your 3.52. pandora's battery works on ALL psp's.

    I just did mine but you need the battery first. I went to a local shop and bought a used battery. I opened it did the hard mod,(search the forums for instructions) the I used the Pandora's Box Gui and this formated the memory stick, then when I put the battery in It downgraded to 1.5 from there you can Install the custom firmware.

    Find the gui here

    Yes
    Go here http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/610248 and scroll down it shows you what you have to do to the battery.

    the link I left above downloads the gui that will make the memory stick but it has to be larger than 32mb and smaller than 2 gb.

    After the memory stick is made pop in the battery the psp will power up on it's own and you will be promted to downgrade to 1.50 and from there there are stickies with instructions on upgrading to custom firmware.

    For a complete tutorial use the search but I used a nail and just made sure that there was separation between the board and the battery.

    Your supposed to get the green light once u pop the battery in if not try charging the battery it will only downgrade to 1.50 if the battery is about 80 % charged.

    Good to hear I helped being that I am a noob my self. As for the best firmware your there already and about the homebrew I suggest searching the forums as I only use mine to play iso's.
