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:
QUOTE said:

- Connect the PSP to the PC with the Memory Stick inside via the USB Connection.
- Format the Memory Stick using any utility.
- Use mspformat to format the Memory Stick logically.
- Remove the Memory Stick and disable the USB connection.
- Connect the Memory Stick again via the USB connection of the PSP.
- Manually create the PSP/GAME (optionally PSP/GAME150) folders on the
 Memory Stick.
- Copy the "battery" and "installer" programs to the PSP/GAME
 (optionally PSP/GAME150) folder.

- Copy the 1.50 official updater as UPDATE.PBP to the root of the
 Memory Stick.
- Remove the Memory Stick and disable the USB connection.
- Run "installer" through the firmware on the PSP. This application
 will create the firmware files on the root of the Memory Stick, as
 well as msipl.bin.
- Connect the Memory Stick again via the USB connection of the PSP.
- Execute "msipl" application on the PC with the msipl.bin to write
 the IPL to memory stick.
- Remove the Memory Stick and disable the USB connection.
- Execute "battery" application on the PSP to modify the battery.
- Congratulation, you are now in posession of a "Magic Memory Stick"
 and a "JigKick Battery".
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

    Well, can't you just select 'Don't recommend channel' so that YT wouldn't keep recommending them?
