    In the readme to create a magicstick it also includes steps for creating a pandora battery, but I've gotten a bit lost. What I want to do is turn a 512mb pro stick duo in to the 3.71 m33 stick, and change a 1gb pro stick duo from a magic stick into a normal memory card which I will use for backups.

    Here are the instructions:
    The bits in bold are what I understand, after that it gets me confused. Should I replace 1.50 in the steps to 3.71 OFW which I rename to UPDATE.PBP?

    Then it says run installer through the firmware, previously it says remove the memory stick and usb connection, so does that mean that I run without anything in the memory stick slot while it's still on?

    After that it's Execute msipl.exe with it's namesake in bin format. I don't have either of those with the archive I got this from. Where do I find it and the bin variant?

    So that's all the steps right? I mean once I do the msipl thing then I have a magic stick and don't need to finish the last step (execute battery application)

    Remember I already have the pandora battery. I just want the pandora magic stick, and also should I keep the PSP on the AC/Mains power all through this process?

    Thanks for anyone that can enlighten me.

    Cheers

    ok i can give that a go, but how do I reverse the process? That is turn a magicstick into a normal stick that can be used for backups? Do I just format the memory stick?

    cheers

    You don't need the magic memory stick anymore. Just format it via your PSP and use it for anything.
