Thanks fraseyboy. What about the last link that manaox 2 recommended? It seems to walk you through the "setting up for homebrew" part.

Remember to always follow all instructions TO A T and if your not sure about anything SEEK ADVICE before acting.
Yes, you need a homebrew capable PSP. For the slim PSP, you will need to find someone who has a fat PSP to unlock it. I have done this in the past for a nominal charge.

I have done it with people at school too and was stupid enough not to ask for money prior to the homebrewing

Isn't there a downgrader than doesn't require the use of Pandora?

Not for the PSP Slim. It can't make its own pandoras battery without homebrew capability and the 3.60 firmware and up isn't unlocked via exploit. Motherboard blocks it from running any firmware below 3.60 or using the 1.5 kernel.

Bummer...

I guess the OP is stuffed until some smart bugger (Dark alex probably) hacks it. Until then it'd probably be best not to update the firmware.


Until then 320kbp MP3 will have to do i suppose.

Oh, its been hacked if you have a friend with the fat PSP. All they have to do is have the knowledge on how to unlock it and then it can run the custom firmware. Also, the OP is not necessarily out of luck. He still has not answered whether he has a slim or fat psp.

So unless he can find a friend with a fatty psp he's out of luck for now.

Well, the saga continues. I can't resist trying to make a career out of this at this point. I have found a friend with the "fat one" but....it has system software version 3.52. Am I screwed? Thanks guys.

You can use the pandora's battery to downgrade any firmware. There is not a downgrader via exploit for any PSP higher the 3.50 right now I believe, I'll have to check later.

I believe you are since the 2nd psp has to be homebrew capable and 3.52 isn't. 3.52 could be downgraded to a homebrew capable firmware but then you would need ANOTHER homebrew capable psp so that would defeat the point :P

psp slim mod

Just for the record, you don't need another psp to mod your slim.

Look up pandora battery slim in google and you'll find tutorials. I modded mine at work using scissors, no other psp and the battery that came with the thing. You can also repair the battery after but don't (or don't use it if you do), get another battery instead, trust me. It's a tad scary, especially the hardware battery mod, but very worth it.

Now to get flacs playing on mine...

I think this is all for naught. The headphone out on my PSP is not as good as a PMP.

I definitely appreciate homebrew firmware, however, as my unit is Europe-based and off-the-shelf games are a no-go.

Actually, I never ever use the thing. Anyone wanna buy it off me? It's already hacked, and I'll sell it for a ridiculously low price.
