The only way to install custom firmware would be pandoras battery (the best) or modchip.

use this guide to get custom firmware on your PSP.

It works, and you don't need a second PSP. I used to have firmware 3.71, but then I used the guide and now I'm running custom firmware 3.71 M33-3.

I haven't got a second battery yet. My PSP is being powered from the charger only. But yeah, I modded the battery. I drained the battery all the way before I modded it, to be safe.

Re: psp newbie w/ 3.80 needs help....

You could use a special loader (I think) that works something like this: when you hold L when starting your PSP, it boots the XMB, if R = recovery menu, if nothing, then it goes to Pandora menu.

Edit: Whoops, a typo. big_smile My fault.

Lol, it's playstation PORTABLE... You should really buy a new battery, the third party ones aren't expensive.

And they can even EXPLODE! How cool is that!

Just a link, not saying that it was a third-party battery.

Re: psp newbie w/ 3.80 needs help....

I hardmodded mine as well..but I have a second battery...
Though, once you have homebrew, use the charger and install Time Machine. If you use a memory stick with that installed, than you can boot up normally while using the modded battery. Thats all I know of.


My signature? Tis a silly thing to read.

Re: psp newbie w/ 3.80 needs help....

I'm so confused with this stuff... Do you have to take your battery out every time you turrn it off? OrIs it like a regular psp, wehn you turn it on, it loads into CFW?

Re: psp newbie w/ 3.80 needs help....

It works like this: you just install DCv5 to your memory stick and then make your battery a Pandora. Then you choose the button you want to use while booting up your PSP to go to the DC menu. If you choose L for example, then when you boot up the PSP it will go to the XMB and work like a regular PSP. But if you want to go to the DC menu for TimeMachine/unbricking/backup purposes you just hold L while booting up the PSP.

Re: psp newbie w/ 3.80 needs help....

One more thing...when I used my Pandora and my Magic Mem, after I get the CFW, do I still use the pandora, or do I need to use another battery?

you need to use another battery as the pandora is a recovery mode battery now just like a recovery disc for pc's...
