    Umm my old psp (fat one) is pretty much broken, it cant read umds, cant enter sleep mode and is running on 3.40 oe-a firmware, so it can still run isos/csos. Ive changed the umd laser but that didn't fix the problem so im thinking of buying a new slim psp and upgrade it to 3.71 m33-2. Just outta cursiosity, is 3.71 m33 just as good as 3.40 oe-a by that i mean like does it basically function the same when running an iso or cso game? Also is it hard to make a pandoras battery? Sorry for asking to much questions but my old psp is just annoying me..

    3.71 M33 can play ISOs, themes, homebrew, emulators and has No-UMD mode and more.

    Yes, by just formatting it from your PSP when you're finished. :~)

    No, not at all. Themes can be for 3.71 M33-3 only but themes for 3.40 OE-A are for all above CFW. No-UMD on 3.40 OE-A doesn't work right. On 3.71 M33-3 it is 100% working. 3.71 M33-3 has the new POPSloader with it, which means better pops compability. You're bloody wrong.
