Downgrading my psp 5.51 to 3.70 m33


Sorry Ryan, you will need a service or pandora battery to reload custom firmware.

This will let you back up games you already own and run them from the memory stick.

You can create a pandora battery and the 'magic' memory stick from any psp already running custom firmware. You can also buy them online, and if you look in the local classified ads website where you live, you can probably find people offering that downgrading service.

I cannot run through the steps here to create your own, but tutorials are all over the net and sites like youtube.

  • Boot up PSP to XMB with UPMS inserted-Fat Only.

Yes you'll can do this with the pandora battery, this boots the service mode on the psp and lets you install whatever firmware you like,
for custom you'll need a magic Memory stick.

HOW TO DOWNGRADE PSP Firmware 5.51 to custom WIYHOUT PANDORA BATTERY

Pandora Battery


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.

Downgrade psp firmware 5.02


Someone will have to run the flash program to get you back to M33. Pandora battery and Magic stick with M33 flash on it. Most homebrew and programs will not run on any M33 version above 3.9. New UMD games from sony will have the latest firmware and the children will usually run the firmware upgrade to play the game. It will allow the new UMD to play, but the Sony Firmware will write over the Custom M33 firmware and you will not be able to run the games on your Memory stick.

Custom firmware


Earlier you have said that you were able to play games from memory stick and since you updated your psp firmware the didn't worked.
First Check your current firmware version . To do this go to
Settings > System Settings > System Information on your PSP . If you your version showing  for example 5.00 M33 you are still in Custom firmware. In this case you should able to play the games from memory stick. or else you memory stick is back... or you custom settings are wrong.

If its showing  for example 5.00 you are with Sony's official firmware. In this case you wont be able to play the games from  memory stick. From here to make your PSP play the games from memory stick you need to Downgrade your PSP. Only way to make this possible is through Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick.
So please check your version and let me know so i can guide you further. Also tell me whether your PSP is PHAT or SLIM & LITE..... or check the version of your PSP by removing the battery. Underneth it find some letters and numbers PSP-100x / PSP-200x / PSP-300x

Psp firmware 3.95


ya need a pandora battery = magic memory stick with the original sony 1.50 update. put the memory stick in, then battery. it should turn on automatically, all lights on. then show you a screen that says install 1.50. install it, then go to dark-alex.org and download all the updates, you can start with 2.71 special edition then go all the way to 3.90 m33-2. in my opinion, go to 3.71-2. best CFW so far.
