    1A friend of my got a White PSP he has updated to Firmware 3.90(Even that I told him not to)
    Is it still possible to install custom firmware, I know pandora is possible but I don't have it and can't make it(Have no PSP)

    2Also another question I maybe want to buy a PSP Slim would it be possible to install Custom Firmware on a just new PSP Slim?

    By the way I have ever had a PSP sold it because i never played it anymore that time, but I'm getting the feeling I NEED TO PLAY GTA ANYWHERE PORTABLE, you know what I mean I guess

    You can install CFW on any OFW so far, phat or slim. If you can't soft mod a battery you could always hard mod it, or just buy one. Datel's Tool battery is pretty good.

    Check out this thread on installing CFW. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=68111

    Yep, Datel TOOL is the way to go ... just make sure you buy the right one ... they come in Phat & Slim.

    It's really easy ... and there are a zillion tutorials for doing it.

    You still need to make the Magic Memory Stick, which takes about 5 minutes and another 10 seconds to turn it back into a normal stick.

    The battery doesn't matter, I usually use the phat battery even on slims, well i did when I done it for my cousin. Be warned tho using a phat battery makes the slim unplayable for around 12hrs. I dunno why it usually doesn't turn on for me.

    12 hours? I've done a few slims with a fat battery and have had no problems with any of them turning on.

    If making a Magic Memory Stick using one of the easy installers, make sure you don't do it using a Vista machine, as those easy installers don't care much for Vista, and it might not work correctly.
