    Okay, I know this is going to sound really noobish...but I want to know if there's a way to downgrade a PSP 1001(Phat Model) to Custom Firmware from OFW 6.20 WITHOUT Pandora's Battery. I updated to OFW 6.20 like an idiot, [​IMG] , and I've already messed up a battery trying to hardmod it,since apperently,the Model-110 'Made in China' batteries are un-pandorable.I'd rather not use the Pandora-MMS method,so i was wondering if there was a way to downgrade my PSP using an exploit or the Half Byte Loader launched through the Patapon 2 Demo.If not,I was wondering if there was a way to soft mod a Pandora Battery using a PC app and then revert it.I can't buy one myself,and I don't know anyone with a PSP that has CFW.[I mentioned hacking PSP's to my friends and they were almost glaring at me when I told them what you could do with a Hacked PSP [​IMG] ] Please help!!

    No. Half-byte and other game save exploits are user-mode, you need kernel-mode to modify firmware.

    Your best bet is finding a buddy with a modded Phat, putting Ultimate VSH Menu on it, and softmodding his battery into a Pandora.

    Then you can mod your PSP just fine. I downgraded my 2001 from 6.31.

    Either take up Gisel on his generous offer, or buy one for like 9 bucks off of DE or PS.

    Er, don't you need kernel-mode to rewrite the battery's serial number?

    For me it was easy enough to use Ultimate VSH Menu with a Phat PSP. :| All I had to was press select and say "Pandora" on the options there.

    Except that's a PRX plugin, which you can't use with the user-mode exploits available on OFW 6.x.

    He will need a pandora battery or an already-hacked PSP to softmod one.

    Make sure to get one of the ones that has the button to switch between standard battery and pandora mode - the pandora only ones flake out.

    That's the version I got as well (white, with an LED battery life indicator), but it doesn't last nearly as long as an official normal battery of course. [​IMG]

    I wish I can benefit with the offer but oh well....Take the offer since he's giving it to you for help. You could always send it back afterwards if one of you agrees. lol
