Step 1. Format your psp memorystick (warning all of your current files such as music, savegames, videos and pictures will be deleted. you do not have to re format but it will make it alot easier)
Step 2. open the memstick folder inside the starter pack and copy all the files inside the memstick folder over to your psp.
Section 3 - setting up devhook on your psp
All the files needed for devhook were just copied onto your psp via the previous section. now all we have to do is get it up and running.
Step 1. go to the game section on your psp and go to the memory stick icon. Then run devicehook.
Step 2. If an auto run appears press x to cancel it. next change all of the settings like the below:
umd select - umd disc
umd mount - umd disc
umd version - 2.xx to 2.0
firmware - 2.71
cpu clock - 222mhz / 111mhz
boot select - reboot xmb
then leave the other section and click start. you should now be in 2.71 mode
to exit devhook to the xmb just completely power off your psp by holding the power button up and then restart it and it will return to 1.5
Section 4 - Installing custom firmware (OPTIONAL)
before we start i would like to explain the advantages of custom firmware:
easier to boot to 2.71 by flicking the wlan switch down
addable modifications (eg, screen shot button)
ability to run 1.0 eboots aswell as 1.5
no corrupt icons
ability to unbrick your psp by going into recovery mode
to install go to the game menu just as you started devhook but then start customfirmware. Press x and it will automatically install and restart your psp.
How to use your custom firmware features:
power off your psp and flick the wlan switch down then turn psp on and it will boot to 2.71. do the same with it up and it will boot to 1.5.
power off your psp and then as you restart it flick the power switch into the hold position and it will boot into recovery mode.
