    This question may be noob and repeated, but I searched in forums and found nothing.

    Is there a way to install CFW WITHOUT:
    1- Another PSP?
    2- Hardmodding battery?
    3- Buying another battery?

    I mean, I readed another tutorial and I kind of figured out that using the software that changes battery into pandora battery...I could change it back to normal. The software that is used in such tutorial is Hellcat's Pandora Installer for 3.xx Rev 3a, and at one point, the tutorial says that this program throws these options:

    "4. Upon launching the application, take note of these four options:

    * Press O to convert battery to Pandora
    * Press [] to convert battery to normal
    * Press R+O to write battery serial to file
    * Press R+[] to restore battery serial"

    So I thought that running this software after installing CFW, I could change battery back to normal and blam! CFW without another PSP or hardmodding battery, nor buying a new bat.

    My question is, is it possible? I Just bought a PSP Phat and I wanna be 100% sure.

    The program wouldn't run in the first place without a Pandora's battery. Believe me, if there was a way to do it without hardmodding or buying another or using a PSP with CFW you'd know about it.

    myuusmeow answered the question but i thought id detail it a bit further.

    The software,hellcats pandora Installer or any other pandora installer for that matter, will only run on a CFW psp.

    so this is the run down.

    1. without Another PSP?
    this was the point of this tutorial, but if you dont use another PSP you need to hardmod the battery and then revert it, or buy another battery.

    2. without Hardmodding battery?
    To do this you need access to another PSP with a CFW already installed.

    3. without Buying another battery?
    To do this you would also need access to another PSP with a CFW already installed, or hardmod the battery and then revert it.

    you basically have 3 options:
    Using another PSP on CFW to install CFW
    or hardmodding the battery to install CFW.
    or buy a pandora battery.

    I just cant get it to work on my psp slim daxter edition. I got the battery from deal extreme, battery tested and seems to work right. I tried two MS cards 1 and 2 gig. Psp grader succesfully installed pandora files into the cards. I held L before putting the battery in and nothing happens, theres no mem card wifi lights blinking nor screen come on.

    official MS card - check
    working pandora battery - check
    psp grader on xp - check
    successful installed on card - check

    I need help.

    To both gokong and roguetrip. Use TotalNewbi to make your MMS.

    gokong, if TotalNewbi doesn't work, try the method listed in Legion's guide.

    roguetrip, I've heard conflicting reports about PSPGrader and the Datel Tool Battery. Just try it yourself and see, its not a big deal to remake the MMS with another method.

    Yes you can. But you need a Pandora's Battery.

    My Slim battery is made in japan. Should I go for it and hardmod it anyway? I'm really eager to try and get this done.

    EDIT: I am now done and it worked, thanks.

    The hardest part? Splitting the battery apart.

    I have no idea what I can do now and how I, for example load PSX games into it o_o The layout looks like OFW.

    Oh and I only have 180mb left after the install. I'll need a new memory stick. If I purchase a new one will I have to do the WHOLE thing over again?

    Selxis, for the things you can do with custom firmware, read some of the older threads in the forum. I think that reading Legion's guide will also help you (refer to the other sticky). You won't need to do it over after buying a new memory stick because the firmware is stored internally on the PSP itself. The memory stick held the firmware to flash the PSP, after it is done, it's no longer needed (unless you want to do it again later).

    So all I need to play backups is a PSP (new ones), this and sometime?

    It doesn't matter to him, he'll pay $50 for a hour of doing something easy.
