PSP Custom Firmware Tutorial

Requirements

* A fat PSP with firmware version 3.52 M33-3 or greater. The installer will not work with anything lower than this. I do not have a slim PSP, so I cannot help you with it. However this seems like a good tutorial on upgrading to 3.60 M33.

* At least a memory stick with 128 MB of free space

* Fully charged battery (or just leave it plugged in the power)

* M33 installation package that includes the SONY official firmware version 3.71 & 1.50, CFW extender, 1.50 kernel patch.

* Patience to follow this guide step by step

Install 3.71 M33

1. Connect your PSP to the computer via a USB cable.

2. Copy all files on the memory stick to a hard drive. This is a backup just in case something evil happens, even if it’s unlikely.

3. Copy the UPDATE folder (found in PSP/GAME folder in the installation package) to the PSP/GAME folder on your PSP.

4. Disconnect your PSP from the computer

5. Navigate to the games section of the XMB on your PSP and select the Memory Stick tab

6. Run the application called “PSP Update ver 3.71″

7. Press X if asked to correct idstorage keys

8. Press X after that to continue

9. You will be asked to install the official 3.71 SONY update, so follow their instructions. Don’t worry, the installer will patch it to run homebrew afterwards.

10. Your PSP will restart automatically after this update is complete

11. Apply the 3.71 M33-2 Patch

12. You now have 3.71 M33 on your PSP!


I hope this tutorial has helped!

If you want to mod a slim+light psp you need to modify your battery, or get a customed battery, just a hint. A modded battery gives you also the opportunity to unbrick your psp in emergency situations.

3.80, go get it from DarkAlex's site, needs at least a 3.52 M33 custom firmware though.

The new one is awesome, no more downloading the updates and all those annyoing files from the internet! You can download them straight to the PSP using the network update!

I also remember there's a tutorial for people with normal PSP's without custom firmwares.

I tried it with my own bricked fat and it worked wonders. It's a good alternative for people that don't have custom firmware in the first place.

You can do it easily with a knife and a small needle. You have to remove a pin to manually make it a Pandora.

Then you can use a program called TotalNewbiEasyInstaller(easily googled); with an adaptor or a normal PSP you can make the Pandora files through USB without custom firmware. It gives you the option of loading 3.71 original, 3.71 m33 for the phat PSP, or 3.71 m33 for slims.
