    I have heard that u can install Custom fire wire on your psp with out having a Pandora's battery is that fals or true ?
    beaus if you need I will say this Please hackers find a way to install fire wire without Pandora's battery because it just sucks that to need to destroy 1 battery so I must buy a new one they are not cheap and im not rich >< im reading on a forum that u can create a Pandora battery through software. ?

    simply put ... you have to have a Pandora's battery, either one you made ... a datel tool ... or one that was Pandorized with another psp that already has Custom firm ware ...
    your best bet if you don't have money or a friend with CFW already on there psp is to make one your self ... sure you risk it never working again but then if your careful not only will it get that custom firm ware that you want so bad but you can still use that battery and not have to buy anything ...

    yes I have a psp slim ^^
    a 2GB memstick
    and I can be willing to mod my battery



    okey here is the redme for the Pandora battery sofware program


    REQUIREMENTS
    - A spare PSP Battery. Any make will do. Using a spare is best, as it
    will not be possible to boot the PSP in its normal state with the
    modified battery.
    - A spare Memory Stick Pro Duo of less than 4Gb. (256Mb should be
    enough for all applications).
    - A PSP with a Custom Firmware such as OE, M33 or WC, or a PSP with
    the 1.5 original kernel.

    INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
    - Connect the PSP to the PC with the Memory Stick inside via the USB
    Connection.
    - Format the Memory Stick using any utility.
    - Use mspformat to format the Memory Stick logically.
    - Remove the Memory Stick and disable the USB connection.
    - Connect the Memory Stick again via the USB connection of the PSP.
    - Manually create the PSP/GAME (optionally PSP/GAME150) folders on the
    Memory Stick.
    - Copy the "battery" and "installer" programs to the PSP/GAME
    (optionally PSP/GAME150) folder.
    - Copy the 1.50 official updater as UPDATE.PBP to the root of the
    Memory Stick.
    - Remove the Memory Stick and disable the USB connection.
    - Run "installer" through the firmware on the PSP. This application
    will create the firmware files on the root of the Memory Stick, as
    well as msipl.bin.
    - Connect the Memory Stick again via the USB connection of the PSP.
    - Execute "msipl" application on the PC with the msipl.bin to write
    the IPL to memory stick.
    - Remove the Memory Stick and disable the USB connection.
    - Execute "battery" application on the PSP to modify the battery.
    - Congratulation, you are now in posession of a "Magic Memory Stick"
    and a "JigKick Battery".

    USAGE
    - Insert Memory Stick into the PSP
    - Remove power cord and insert the JigKick Battery into the PSP.
    - A menu appears when the PSP boots. Follow the onscreen information
    and instructions.

    NOTES AND RESTRICTIONS
    - The firmware in the Memory Stick is not a full 1.50, but a minimal
    subset. Therefore, not all applications (such as flashers, or
    recovery apps) will load.
    - Only Memory Stick Pro Duo are compatible. Memory Stick Duo
    (e.g. 32MB sticks) are not supported.
    - The IDStorage cannot be totally restored, as there is no known way
    to regenerate it properly.
    - It is strongly RECOMMENDED to make a flash dump of the PSP before
    any downgrading operation.
    - There might be a BSOD at the end of the downgrade. This is normal,
    and happens on the standard downgraders.
    - All hardware revisions known at this day are supported.
    - This release contains no Sony-copyrighted material. All required
    Sony data is generated from the v1.50 update files.



    but then I wonder how it works later can I after using this method use the same battery and memcard ??

    Dont use that to make your magic memory stick use THIS (It will get you to the newest and best firmware 5.0 M33-4)
    and look HERE to make a pandora's battery yourself ... let me know if you have any questions
