I read through your other posts and found that other people had given you some wrong information. Namely, one user told you that you can upgrade to a custom firmware from an official 4.xx firmware. Trust me, you cannot do this.

If you are already upgraded beyond 1.50 (you may have bought your PSP with a higher firmware than 1.50), you have no other choice than to:
A. buy a modchip or
B. use pandora's battery method.
Pandora's battery is much easier for those of us that don't want to physically open the PSP and alter it. The Pandora's battery process will require a PSP, Pandora's Battery, and "Magic" Memory stick.

You can make a pandora's battery by opening your current battery and altering it. The process is actually rather simple, but the downfall is that once you change it, it won't work normally anymore. So, you'll end up buying another battery. I recommend leaving your battery alone and buying a pandora's battery.

In addition to the battery, you must make a "Magic Memory Stick" or MMS. You may either buy a MMS or make one yourself. To make a MMS, you simply load certain files onto your current memory stick, which you may later remove if necessary. Unlike the Pandora's battery, the memory stick is not permanently altered. You can read how to make a MMS HERE. Download what is in the link on the first post and follow the given instructions.

I found that you can buy both the Pandora's battery and Magic Memory Stick (MMS) HERE for a decent price. If you want to get to a custom firmware with the least hassle, just buy them both instead of making them yourself. Or you could make your Memory stick into a MMS and just buy the pandora's battery, which is also available on the website i mentioned.

If all of this may seem like too much to handle, it is MUCH easier to buy a PSP on eBay or other online store that is already a custom firmware.
I may consider selling mine, actually. It is 5.00 m33-4 custom firmware, which runs iso,cso,custom programs and n64,ps1,gba,snes,gbc games.

If you are unsure about any of the processes I have mentioned, search for guides or tutorials on google. There are a lot of them. Also youtube has guides that are helpful. Honestly, search google before anywhere else. Remember that many of your questions can be answered through google because I guarantee that someone else has already asked your question somewhere else. That's how I learned how to do the whole process.

Hope this leads you in the right direction.

How to install psp version 6.20 on a psp 3000?


If you are already above this firmware, it seems you are out of luck. A friend with a modified PSP could make you a pandora battery, but with the PSP 3000 you have to be extremely careful not to brick it. I suggest, if you want custom firmware, selling it and getting a different model of PSP, or looking up some files/readmes on QJ.net.

Tip

[For those who wish to repair their psp themselves] Quoted from Team Noobz!...


Written by Fanjita

You've probably arrived here via a link in one of our eBay auctions.
Here's all the info that the other sellers are trying to sell you. What they don't want you to know is that it's all available freely on the internet.
First, some basic facts:
The Pandora Battery is actually a combination of specially-modified PSP battery, and specially-modified PSP pro duo memory stick.
It allows you to unbrick, or downgrade, ANY PSP, regardless of current firmware, as many times as you like.
Although you can convert the Pandora Battery back to an ordinary battery, you're recommended to use a spare battery, as it is more convenient and flexible.
To make a Pandora Battery, you need a homebrew-capable PSP. If you don't have a homebrew-capable PSP, you should find a friend who does, or use the information below to find someone who can make a battery for you, for free.

So how do you get started?

Click here for the original release article, that contains links to download all of the software that you could need.

Here's a set of lists of volunteers who will unbrick, downgrade or make a Pandora Battery for you for free, or a minimal donation:

Via the NoobzI Forums

Collected from the QJ / MaxConsole Forums

Click here for an easy-to-follow guide for creating and using the Pandora Battery.

For cheap prices on spare PSP batteries that are guaranteed for compatibility, click here for (UK) or here (US) .

Some scams to beware of:

Some people are selling the battery on its own, plus instructions on how to make the memory stick. Making the battery is the easy part, and if your PSP is unable to do that, then you will be unable to make the memory stick.

Selling the memory stick is illegal.

Many people will try to sell you just the instructions. There are some excellent instructions available for free on the internet, including those linked to above.
Many people are simply selling you a link to the website containing the download.

How do i play back up games on my PSP 3000, it has software update 5.50. When I place a game on the memory card and try to play it, i always get a error message, Corrupt Data message, Or Liecencing...


you can not play downloaded games in your psp3000, because it can not read iso formats. i also heard that pandora battery does not really works, try to download bittorrent.com to your psp then get some games from mininova.com, but be sure that you are downloading games that are for psp. i tried it and it works in mly psp 3000.
