    Hello,
    I just bought a second hand psp 3003, and am looking to jailbreak. Do I need any special memory stick pro duo in order mod the psp?

    I heard something about magic memory stick/magic gate but I have no idea what they are.

    I'm looking to buy an unbranded 8gb memory stick pro duo from here:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8GB-MEMOR...AsAccessories_MemoryCards&hash=item51c152d9dd

    Would it work fine or do I need an official sony brand? Are there any other requirements?

    Thanks in advance.

    There is no jailbreaking a PSP. Just install CFW. Suggest using something from the Pro-B series or Pro-C if you don't mind PSX games not working right.

    Do not buy unbranded cards.
    Spend s few quid extra and get a 16 GB card from Sandisk from yer local store.

    Is that a common problem? I've always used Pro cfw but I've never has any issues with ps1 converted with psx2psp

    I personally have never had trouble but it is a known issue unless the fixed it. It has to do with Pro-C version.

    Read this thread for information on various MSPDs.

    The Sony cards are expensive crap.

    That's why you get the dual-card microSD adapter, and stuff two 16GB cards in there and just let the PSP format it into a 32GB monster memory card. :D
