    Here's basically where I'm at. I want to get a PSP, but I want to put on CFW to run my PS1 games on it. I've paged through several guides, but a lot of them talk about downgrading firmware, pandora's battery, etc. and I'm a little lost.

    If I went to the store today, bought myself a PSP, and wanted to put a custom firmware on to allow me to play my PS1 games, what's a good guide to follow? I can figure it out for myself if I get a good tutorial/starting point. Thanks for the help.

    If you were to buy a psp today from the store, you are correct you would need a pandora battery/memory stick to get your psp up and running custom firmware...

    HERE is a good guide to use as a starting point.

    Good Luck!

    So, I need to buy a Memory Stick Duo, and the Datel battery. Then I follow the guide and I should have the CFW loaded. After that, I should be able to follow a PS1 ripping guide and be able to do the things I want? Thanks again for the help.

    That is correct-Unless you know somebody that has a psp already running custom firmware, you could have them setup a battery and memory stick for you to get you going...

    Sounds good, thank you for all the help. What's the lowest price you've seen for the Datel battery? I've found one at $42.

    You can get some pretty cheap PSP batteries on Ebay.

    Yeah, those Datel units run about $40
    Also best to stay away from eBay for batteries or memory sticks for that matter...

    I found a guy in my town who mods firmware on PSPs, would I need to buy that battery then if I brought my potentially purchased PSP to him?

    He probably has the pandora setup already if he does modding etc=He may charge a few bucks to do it, but well worth it I'm sure...Easier than doing it yourself, and dropping $$ on a battery, etc...

    Then that's probably what I would do. I wouldn't mind paying him to do it, he's experienced and I won't have to get the battery then. Thanks once again for the help.
