    As posted towards the end of this thread by Jiggah Psp Slim firmware dumped Custom firmware for the Psp Slim has been released. I think this is major news and deserves its own thread.

    Awesome. I may consider a PSP Slim sometime if they can manage to get the 1.5 kernel to somehow work.

    I can't believe the firmware has been released so quickly. The PSP slim hasn't even been out a day.

    Step 3) Profit!!!

    I'm going to get the Star Wars one when it comes out! Let it be known that at the moment pretty much zero homebrew works. I think I'll be keeping my PSPFat (for more reasons than just it's necessity in the Slim and Lite flashing process).

    It's been out in Europe and Hong Kong for over a week.
    Plus some people got their hands on dev versions and such before release.

    The instalation is done using pandora battery and requires a fat psp with 1.50 or
    custom firmware with 1.50 support to run a installer.
    M33 rulez!!!
    I don't own a slim and i don't really want one.
    My big fat old one is great [​IMG]

    Too bad getting homebrew to run on PSPs is a bitch. Thank god Nintendo didn't make the DS firmware upgradeable.

    nice work .. I might just give PSP a try one day.

    ... also, once you make a pandora battery, you can undo it to be a normal battery again, right? Do 3rd-party brand batteries work, or just Sony official ones?

    Okay I went for it and bought a brand spanking new black PSP Slim [​IMG] It's really lovely, so light....

    I went to EB Games and traded in my old PSP along with three games (don't need em anymore since I've ripped them) and only paid $AU99 for the Slim. Very nice deal.

    The funny thing is that they broke the street date. The EB game clerk stuffed up the date (it's meant to be released tomorrow) but when I came into the store he let me buy it anyway [​IMG]

    Before I traded it in I borrowed a friend's bricked PSP, used it's battery to make it into a pandora battery and unbricked it for him and installed 3.52M33 on it. Needless to say he's very happy and so am I since I was able to use it to flash 3.60M33 onto my Slim.

    It works very well. All the advantages of CFW and a Slim PSP. What more can you want?

    Nice to hear opium.
    Is the slim better of build quality as a machine or not?
    M33 will probably release 3.70 cfw for both fat and lite next [​IMG]

    It's a serious crap shoot with unofficial batteries. AFAIK the only reliable ones at this point are official fat PSP batteries and a few of the datel ones.

    Yep seems to be. MUCH better buttons + the d-pad is in a whole new league.

    Next to my friend's now functional phat PSP [​IMG]

    The new one seems a lot smaller in real life as opposed to what you see in pics. But the real kicker is not the size but the weight. It's very light. As light if not lighter than a ds lite.

    It doesn't happen to come with the case does it? Like the old PSP I have has this foam pouch thing which was pretty cool.
