    yes, though you're probably better off going to something like 5.00m33-6 directly.
    you do need a pandora's battery set (tool/jigkick battery and a specially formatted memorystick) for now.

    Pandora works on a 1k regardless of current firmware.

    Just put in your mms and pandora, hold the button you selected to go to pandora menu, and it'll install whatever cfw you selected on it

    So bottom line if we're at 6.31 or anything above 5.03, we need a pandora to use it for homebrew?

    There's a 5.50 version as well

    Otherwise, yes if you can't use half byte loader.

    I'm just trying to avoid the pandora method as it sounds way too complicated and I don't feel like dishing out cash for one atm @_@

    Considering everything you get from it, I think $6.25 is a steal.

    Half Byte Loader should run the software I posted above that can switch it to a pandora and then back when you're done. It's easy to make the MMS.
