    Well, im buying a PSP lite today, and a friend of mine did the Luminess trick, so I know that it works, but I don't know how, so someone can tell me if it's simple and what I would need exactly to make it work?

    Thanks [​IMG]
    (Im really new to the PSP scene so... what firmware should I use?)

    A little bit of Googling tells me that the Lumines trick downgrades 3.50. You said you are buying a Slim, and Slims can not run any firmware lower than 3.60, so the Lumines trick will not work. You will have to use a Pandora's Memory Stick. See ediblebird's sticky.

    When you're done with the Pandora's Battery, use 3.90M33-3. Always use the latest Dark-Alex firmware at dark-alex.org

    Sorry, you won't be able to use the lumines trick on the slim psp. It comes with firmware higher than 3.50. Version 3.50 is required for the exploit to work. I would look into making a pandora battery and magic memory stick. I think there was a guide on this site somewhere....

    Edit: ahhhh, i'm so slooowwww

    You can make a normal battery into a Pandora's Battery then reverse it.
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=681...t=0&start=0 See anime_junkie's method.

    If you buy a phat, the easiest way is to use a Pandora's Battery. If it comes with 3.50 or lower you could use the Lumines trick. If it has 1.50 or 1.00 you can just go straight to CFW without any tricks.

    Eh the photo isn't working haha, I don't know where to cut...
    I would do that method, If I knew where to cut.
    Is it at the same place than the other method?

    Well it's way more complicated than I thought.

    well the lumines exploit is outdated,and there are better ways....but if your friend has cfw he can make a pandora's battery for you.
