I know I'm doing something stupid here, but I need help. I'm trying to crack my friend's PSP to any CFW. It doesn't really matter what version; once it's cracked he can put whatever else he wants to get on there.
I got my Phat psp cracked this last weekend and it is running 3.71 M33-2. Runs great. My friend's slim is running 3.71. It's used (Darth Vader) so I'm 99.9% positive that it's not a TA-088 mobo, but I'm not sure how to find out for sure.
I've used Hellcat v 4 to pandoraize my battery and it's showing the correct pin (xFFFF blah blah). The battery shouldn't be the issue.
I've tried using hellcat's install of DDC and DDC v 3 and v 4 to get my memory stick setup. None of these setups give me a choice on a button to hold down during startup. I've followed every guide I can find on these forums. So here's my issue:
My friend's slim is unplugged, no battery inside.
I pop in the magic memory stick.
I put in the Pandora Battery and the green power light turns on for about a second, then it turns off.
I've tried pushing the power button and the same thing happens. I've tried the same thing holding down either shoulder button and each of the face (square, triangle, circle, X) buttons as well. I always get the results I described above.
So what gives? What am I missing?
Thanks in advance.
