Another great guide.
Now if people would just read the stickies we'd be set
Awesome guide Im about to try this out because Im having some very strange issues after trying to go from 1.50 official up to 3.71m33 I have a question though it may be dumb but ill ask anyway. Can I follow this method even though my PSP is not actually bricked? I basically want to start fresh with my PSP and this method seems to take a lot of the extra steps out of the way so I cant mess anything up by getting files confused.
Yes resievol, you can follow this guide on any PSP, bricked or not.
Larrylje, does this work with a Slim PSP battery then?
Yes you can use this guide to install or unbrick custom firmware to any PSP.
Yes it works with compatible SLIM Batteries. Just make sure you choose to "write serial only from ms0:/eeprom.bin" when you convert the SLIM Battery back to normal.
Nice guide - Thanks !!
another great guide from larrylje keep up the good work
i have a problem with one of the steps for creating a pandora battery on a custom firmware psp i have made the pandora battery but when i put the battery into the psp along with the magic mem stick the universal unbricker doesnt show ehat should i do?
put the memory card in 1st then the battery.
i did that already
just tryed my one that i just made 5mins ago using this guide and it work's great and was quick to install. so it should work 4 u
what im thinking is that maybe while creating the magic memory stick i might have made an error but ive done it 3 times now following the directions perfectly and still nothing but maybe this is the problem :
The files will now be installed to the Memory Stick.
After it has finished writing the files you will get an image similar to below. Just type Y and ENTER to finish the instillation of files to the Magic memory Stick.
during this step i dont get that message in the image that asks me to push yes to continue i get another that says the people who created the program and then it closes after i push a button
that's strange that didn't happen to me i got the image and press y and it didn't come up
maybe because my computer runs vista?? should i try it on a computer running XP
no harm in trying i ran it on xp and it worked. not really sure about vista only starting to get use to vista.
Rey using a PC running XP. If you still have issues try using a different Memory Stick.
yea i tried it on a XP comp works like a charm!!! thanks guys
hi there..im a noob..
ive been trying to download the link since 2 hours ago..it keep saying that im downloading more than one..can anyone give me another link??
and just to feed my curiousity b4 i bricked my fat..would a custom firmware 3.30 OE-A works too??
EDIT - fixed problem. I used XP and made sure the PSP was in USB mode BEFORE I ran the installer and in between each step that doesn't specifically ask you to turn off USB mode.
So anytime you take it out of USB mode, after you do what the program says, put it back in before continuing. For some reason, the whole thing took a longer time than when I wasn't putting it back into USB mode, but I guess that's because it was actually writing the files to my memory stick..
I've been reading your guides for a long time, first time to thank you, so: thanks Larry
I have the same problem as crisis..I don't get the writeboot screen I just get the credits and "press any key to exit"
I tried it on vista and then 2 xp machines with no luck. the only difference I noticed was in the formatting screen. vista just basically skipped the "verifying 957 mb" part from 0% to the next screen. xp counted through 0-100% sorta slowly.
this is making me nutz..
larrylje, do i need to be logged in to download the file.Always when I enter to download the file, it cant because it says that the server is at the full capacity, plz reply me, i dont know what to do!!!
