I am trying to install DC8 onto my PSP Slim (TA-085 v2), but after 8 hrs I haven't gotten anywhere. My problem is that DC8 won't boot. I put in the "Magic Stick" and then my Pandora battery and the screen stays black and the memory stick LED isn't flashing. The reason for this isn't that I am not holding the "L" button. I actually changed it the config.txt in TimeMachine so that I don't have to press anything.
So far, I've tried tried using RainsUltraLiteMMS v1.2, installed DC8 from instructions in the DC7 sticky to make the Magic Stick and nothing has worked. The weird thing is that DC7 works so at the moment I have a PSP Slim with 4.01 M33-2, but I need 5.00 to play newer games. I've also tried DC6, so I don't think my battery (it's a Datel Service Mode Battery). The only thing I can think of is that the bad blocks in the NAND (block 442, 1342, 2608) may have been problematic.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!! Sorry for the long post.
