We all know we can use the Pandora battery to boot up a full firmware from the memory stick.
I had the problem that, when I wanted to use the original Pandora flashing functions, I had to reconfigure my memstick or use a second one.
I thought it would be nice to have a full FW booted from the stick AND beeing able to run the Pandora functions as needed.
So I could tinker with the PSP using my apps ran from the memstick-1.50 and when done flash it with Pandoras functions right away.
So I came up with this :)
* (1) *
Set up the firmware on the memstick like described in the guide here:
* (2) *
Now, from Pandoras "/kd" folder (that you were supposed to store away savely ;)) copy the following files over to the firmwares "/kd" folder that is now on your stick:
- all files ending with .ELF (a.k.a. copy *.ELF)
- pspbtcnf_updater.txt (overwrite the existing one)
* (3) *
Open "/kd/pspbtcnf.txt" in a text editor.
Find the following line:
after it, add this:Code:/kd/registry.prx
Save and close "/kd/pspbtcnf.txt".Code:# *** pandora module *** /kd/decryptprx.prx # *** /pandora module ***
Now open "/kd/pspbtcnf_game.txt", again find the "/kd/registry.prx" line and add after it:
* (4) *Code:# *** pandora modules *** /kd/decryptprx.prx /kd/lflash_fatfmt.prx /kd/ipl_update.prx /kd/ta082_driver.prx /kd/libpsardumper.prx # *** /pandora modules ***
Finally, to have an easy way to enter the Pandora main menu, grab my Pandora-Launcher EBOOT from here:
and install it on your memstick.
Now, if you have booted the firmware from the memstick using the Pandora battery, you can go to "GAME" in the XMB and run the "Launch PANDORA" entry.
A few seconds later you should find yourself in the Pandora menu as if you had booted it directly.
Maybe there are some others who find this usefull :)
