    Use:
    1. Pandora Battery
    2. Magic Memory Stick
    3. TOTALNewbieasyInstallerPandorasmenu

    To:
    1. Install Custom Firmware

    Then you can play ISO by putting it in the ISO folder in your MS.


    Pretty simple, huh? I still remember when my friend showed me modded PSP in scene's early days, with the need of homebrew ISO loader and such.

    Hopefully he finds it really simple, I got my psp phat when it first came out and had to wait for the 1.50 downgrade and those iso loader were awesome back in the day, but with DA and his CFW, the psp scene is so much different, it crazy how the scene has changed so much and how easy some stuff is compared to back in the day

    is there any other way to get it up to 3.71 m33-2?

    or any other way to play ISOS without the above mentioned tools

    No. Unless you have a PSP with like 2.50 and have the first version of GTA LCS or have the first version of Lumines.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Just do the damn Pandora thing. It's easy.

    you can still use the pandora battery as a normal one by using a hack

    sleep mode doesnt work well with it though

    IF you obtained an illegal copy of Tekken instead of ripping your own it may have the video files ripped from the iso to make it smaller. But of course you have the proper thing so no worries [​IMG]

    Then just create the ISO of it on your own, use one of the UMD dumping tools around the place.

    No need for a tool. In the XMB press select. Where it says USB Mount (Or whatever) change it to UMD.

    Fair enough, I haven't been following the advances in the PSP scene. (Pretty obvious!)

    this is an ok UMD dumper that I used back when I had a PSP.
    If your memory card is too small, it will split the files for you.
    If I recall, I had to rename the extensions from .000 .001 .002 etc. to .r00 .r01 .r02 etc. and use winRAR to extract the ISO inside.
