I realize this will probably just get me a link to the stickies or a flame, but I've been trying to understand this for a couple of weeks now, and I just feel more stupid every time I try to figure it out and fail. I'm not a native english speaker so that might be it.
I've got a PSP phat with 5.03 firmware. For some reason, Chickhen won't work for me (I've tried a million times and not one success) so recently I've ordered a pandoras battery.
Now I've gathered that I need to do a couple of things to make this work:
1. Downgrade my OFW, but I don't know to what version and don't understand how. Tried reading the stickie and countless guides all over the internet but I can't make any sense of it.
2. Make a MMS from my (legitimate) memory card. This shouldn't be too hard from what I've gathered, but I have one question that I haven't seen anywhere else. Do I have to have a card reader to plug in the memory stick directly into the computer, or can I do this procedure using a cable with my PSP in USB mode?
3. Install the Pandora battery. I've ordered one from dealxtreme, but there are a couple of questionmarks here and there. Do I need to charge it first? Should I put it in my psp and charge it then? Is there something I should think about when using it? I've read that they are one use only or something like that and if you fail the first time you'll need a new one so that's why I'm hesitant to put it in my psp to charge. Also, when doing the pandora procedure on my MMS, can I use the psp with cable method I mentioned earlier or do I need a card reader here?
3. Install CFW. This should be the easiest part, but I've yet to understand what version would be the best? Older guides on the internet say one thing and here it says another thing, add to that the whole "signed" homebrew stuff and my head's spinning pretty fast.
In short, I would be extremely grateful if anyone could shed some light on these things for me, and I apologize for not being able to figure it out with the stickies.
