    Is it possible to still put in a CFW once a PSP is at 6.20? Or is it even worth it? I'd like to know before I order a Pandora for it...

    Depends on the PSP model. 1k Fat, 2K Slim, 3k Slim, or Go... Which do you have?

    A good ol' 1000. Was a choice between that or a 3000, so I went with the 1000.

    Then yes. I had 6.20 to try the Assualt Survive demo then I used a pandora to go back to 5.00 m33. (yes I still use m33 [​IMG])

    Alright, so I should be fine with ordering one? One more thing, how big of a memory stick do you need for installing custom firmware? I ordered a 4gb one when ordering the Pandora, I'm just not 100% sure if it'll be an official one. But I have a 1gb one that I know should work for it. Won't use it for homebrew and games and the like, but if I can use that for installing, that'd be better...

    I use a 4gb. [​IMG] I used it for installing cfw and for games. You can use that 1gb.

    Make sure it's Magicgate supported.

    So I cannot use it for installing custom firmware? Crap. And why are so many people viewing my topic? ;_;

    Probably not if it comes from Deal Extreme or any of the Hong Kong suppliers. They usually tend to be fakes - even if they do say MagicGate on them. Do yourself a favour and fork out for a 1gb official one or at least a Sandisk MS for your CFW magic card. Use the fake one for games.

    My 1gb one does say "Supported". Guess that's good. Hopefully my 4gb one will be too...

    Well, you only need 1 Magic Gate supported MS for use for making a MMS IIRC. I'm using a fake 8GB photoflash (2x4GB) and it works fine for games and what not [​IMG].

    My sticky thread should help with what you need to install CFW using the pandora method. The 1 gigabtye MS will be fine; during the flashing process, if you wish to backup NAND (which is recommended), you will need 66MB of space, so 128MB is the recommended minimum.
