    So.. I got my HotWire Pandora Battery (from Datel) today.
    I want to know how I can get a Custom Firmware on my psp with firware 5.00.
    I already used a app PSP Grader.
    It copy'd the files to my memory stick and when I putted in the battery I got a black screen
    Does anyone knows the problem? Can you help me?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Knowing what type of PSP it is/if it's a new Slim or not would help.

    I'm pretty sure the new slims (With the new motherboards) are unhackable, as are the 3000s.

    Are you sure you have the right motherboard so it can be hacked? Are you putting in first the MMS, and THEN the Pandora Battery? If so, then I don't know what you're doing wrong.

    Use a different program to make yourself a MMS. I suggest Hellcat's Pandora Installer.

    i had a problem with DC7 when i installed it. what would happen was that the battery will go on and then it would boot straight to psp menu. i was then told to hold up as i insterted the batter with the mms still in the psp and that booted up my mms to the proper menu.

    but you might need to mpsformat/mspformat your memstick.

    I don't use a custom firmware, I've the original firware now, so, I can't use this. I'm going to sleep, good Night. I'll answer tomorrow.
