This is my first post , i've just entered the psp scene (read: put CFW successfully) and want to help a lot, but i've noted something in the last month (the month i've been reading qj.net's forum posts randomly to checkout) that's disturbing me ;P why people have SO many problems using the tools? could that be because the docs/tutorials aren't very well written? or would it be a user problem (lack of technical knowledge or whatnot)? you more grownup guys probably already KNOW that people outside the psp scene say it is formed by teenagers, generally....
my story: bought a psp1000 [ta82] a month ago [i'm a GP2X owner and former enthusiast, brought down by the lack of updates, decided to buy a psp to test].... found a person with a 1.5 OF PSP in my area [i'm a brazilian living in Japan], he lent me his PSP for one day, for free .... in this one day, i downloaded the eboots, the Despertar v3 kit and the pandora's original kit for 1.5OF, extracted the three and read the instructions contained in those, while reading the 'Make the perfect pandora's battery' post here at QJ [using only the parts that were interesting to me]
in 2 hours i did everything [i was extremely cautious, reading the former brick stories in the internet eheheh] but it was perfect.
1-put the pandora battery creator in the memory stick, created a pandora's battery
2-prepared the original pandora kit
3-booted pandora in my psp, backed up nand
4-15 (eeehehe) various updates to 3.71m33-4
16-17 just to know i could it again and easier, restored my nand dump [to 3.51 OF] and used pandora's battery with a now ready Despertar v3 memory card... which put me directly to 3.71m33-2
18-used booster multi ipl loader to be able to use my pandora's battery for normal use, while still using it to unbrick my friends PSPs
the end, is it that hard?
ps: i used a 4GB original sony card, which i read that doesn't works with pandora.... unconfirmed information, i've already used it perfectly in my psp and 3 more [1 slim]... no problems, and i've never done this before.
i think the psp scene could use more INFORMATION, more help, and more care while writing documentation and stuff ;~) let's help each other?
