    im gonna downgrade and unbrick my first psp's today so i want to know a few things before i start
    when i downgrade a 3.71 psp using a self made jigkick battery and magic memory stick should i leave the incomplete 1.5fw as it is or should i update it to the official one?
    and should i return the battery to normal afterwards or leave it as it is?
    i know im gonna undo what i do to the memory card but im not sure if i should change the jigkick battery.
    the psp is gonna be used for normal use afterwards though, so maybe that makes a difference

    News flash, if you leave your battery as a jigkick, it will NOT work as usual (will enter the black menu). After making the downgrade, I would suggest:
    - Install the 1.5Kernel patch v2 (PSP Phat only)
    - Just after making the downgrade, back in the XMB, enter the Pandora battery maker and restore it.
    - If you turned the PSP off, take out the battery and power on the PSP just using the DC plug, enter
    - If you don't want to restore the battery, youll have to look for and install some PRXs that make the battery work as a normal one

    I really think you cannot restore a battery using only a PSP Slim as it doesn't support the 1.5 Kernel (so it can't run the Pandora Creator program to restore it).

    Good luck with your PSP!
