    Using the files linked in your guide, the magic memory stick that pspgrader created has a different menu, and it installs 5.00 M33-4.

    Will any Memory stick be able to become a Magic Memory Stick. I am going to use RainsUltraLiteMMS best application for it so far!

    No, seems like original Sony sticks that are Mark 2 won't do. I barely found my 521 mb non-Mark 2 stick and it worked as a MMS.

    Actually I just got a 2GB Sony Mark 2 stick today from Walmart and made a magic memory stick out of it.

    Greetings.

    I have a quick question. I have a 1000 PSP with OFW 6.20 bought in day one when it was released in Europe (updated it to play some games I bought). I also have a pandora made by datel.

    Can I use it to re-install CFW?

    I might have to have a look at that; the link is still to version 8, which is what I used; I'd already finished installing CFW before writing this, so maybe I need to check again.

    Still, people have said it's worked without trouble.

    Yeah, it works, I was just noting for you to correct the instructions in your guide since they referenced different controls and a different menu layout (and said you'd end up on a different firmware version).

    Jolan can confirm (we were both fucking around with downgrading from the HEN today, using pandora to restore NAND after we brick).

    6.20 TN running the 5.50 D3 X-Gen updater with the Flash0 protection off seems to work perfectly.
    Looking good, for owners of old 2k/1k who updated to 6.20 and want CFW back.

    We both tested on a TA-085v1, so while I added that downgrading information to the FAQ I have it crossed out waiting for somebody with a later fully-hackable model (like an 88v2) to confirm.

    Only downside being that once I edit it my anchor tags will stop working. :

    The entire guide fits on my screen at once, I don't think it needs anchor tags. [​IMG]

    And at least you have less to edit than Prowler. XD

    How big is your screen? [​IMG]

    And if possible, I can ask a staff member to follow after my edit to put in some working tags too.

    1680x1050, but there's room to spare.

    EDIT: This is with the spoilers NOT enlarged.

    For archival purposes:

    First revision

    Also fixed a typo that's been there for nearly a year..."unplgged" becomes "unplugged".

    I've taken the anchor tags out for now too, on account of them not working after the edit. ([​IMG])
    I'll also update the end of the guide regarding which firmware to use; I'm still on D3, but which version of Prometheus would you recommend? If Rydian has it covered I'll just link to his FAQ. [​IMG]

    I don't cover how to actually update, Prowler's guide covers that in his "updating to the latest custom firmware" section.

    Prome-4 is the latest, if you're on GEN D-3 you simply run the Prome-4 installer homebrew and it adds what's needed to run newer games.

    I was referring more to telling people which firmware to use, though apart from newer game compatibility, D3 is still a good firmware.

    Of the 3 we usually recommend D3 is probably the one you'd want least these days....
