    The thing is, in order to create the magic memory stick, you need access to an already modded PSP.

    some people could of had firmware 1.50, which allows homebrew. I bought my psp on ebay with firmware 1.50. At the time I bought my psp, Pandora battery did not exist but custom firmware did.

    You can make a pandora by cutting one of the legs on the battery's PCB. And, if I remember correctly, the first PSP hack was a a .TIFF image exploit that downgraded from FW2.0 to 1.5.

    EDIT: Change "mod" to "hack".

    Any old wire should work. I would use a wire from an IDE cable.

    it should show the pandora menu or something if you have a pandora memory stick in.
