    No, do not try to install 1.50 onto your slim PSP.

    It is too unstable.

    Remove the tool battery, and put in the proper battery.

    The tool battery is only needed for a few moments, to add the CFW, and after that, you go back to the normal battery.

    Then you did not successfully mod your PSP.

    Did you create your magic memory stick, using the easy installer, with a Vista machine, by any chance?

    It won't show any errors ... but it won't work properly from a Vista machine.

    Everything looks fine, while you are doing it, then it simply doesn't work.

    You need to find someone with an XP machine who will let you use it for a few minutes.

    Connect the PSP to the XP machine.

    Run the program.

    Follow the steps.

    Do the tool battery thing.

    Follow the on-screen prompts.

    Swap the tool for the regular.

    Away ya go.

    i never used the "easy installer" i use Despertar del Cementerio so im not familiar with how "easy installer" works. but did you run the installer on the psp to build the files for it to install? which in turn need to be made on a hacked psp

    When you put the tool battery in, hold the right shoulder button down, as you turn on the PSP

    so running the install app on the psp doesnt need to happen to unpack the firmware, build the cfw etc, with easy installer? you learn something new every day lol

    No, the pc-based installer takes care of everything.

    All you end up having to do, PSP-side, is push the x button a couple of times.
