    Hit square and it should start backing up your nand to your memory card. It will then turn itself off.

    Turn it back on, and hit X and that will install it. Dont worry about the screen being black, it will work just fine! [​IMG]

    Nope...[​IMG]

    Plus mines not a slim & lite either so it SHOULD display something on screen. I used PSP grader to do the memory stick thing and it says its done it. but when I insert the battery whilst holding L nothing happens except the Green power light stays on. Not even when I press X, Square etc.

    The same thing happened to me.

    I had to remake the stick with another memory card. Also, you could try pushing up on the power switch while holding L.

    Datel tool battery does not work with psp grader. Use another method. I did, and it worked.

    you were right. I used pandora's box and it's at 1.50. But guess what? My memory card is COMPLETELY empty. No game, no game150 etc. WTF?

    Yes it does. A Datel Tool Battery is just a commecial Pandora's Battery, so if it didn't work with PSP Grader, regular Pandora's Batteries wouldn't either.

    @above: Upgrade to the latest 3.52M33 firmware (M33-4 or something) then to 3.80M33, then to 4.01 M33, then pick format memory stick in System Settings and it'll make all the folders.

    No it doesn't. The creator of PSP Grader has even acknowledged it on another (big) forum.

    I don't know about your situation. But Thax is having problems with Grader and there are more reports that Grader does not work with Datel Tool battery. I confirmed it myself. Before someone else suggests that he should get another memorystick or battery he should be informed that he is not the only one with problems and that there are other ways to make a magic memory stick.

    Fear not people! I got my PSP working with all the things Sony didn't want it to work with on Thursday.(4.01 M33!) Gotta say all is well. A hint for any future Datel TOOL users:

    DO NOT USE F-ING PSP GRADER!

    Use pandora's box! (If you wanna know how PM me!)

    *Crisis Core, God of War*(WOO)

    EDIT: Forgot to say, thank you all for trying to help me. Now the least I could do is try to help you so PM me for Datel TOOL questions!

    Chances are (if you have a slim) you have the TA-088v3 motherboard. You can't install Customfirmware on it.

    Is it a new PSP? I'm guessing it is, if it came with 4.05.

    That tutorial should work fine.

    Also, I'm pretty sure the card has to support MagicGate in order to install Custom Firmware, so if you have a fake MS Pro Duo, it isn't going to work.
