    I wouldn't do nand backups, if handled wrong they can fully brick your PSP.
    Why don't you use hellcats? (If it can switch between firmware)

    because then i would have to reconfigure my wifi settings and other settings every time. and if i brick my psp with a nand backup even a pandora can't save me?

    A Pandaora will always work as long as you have a motherboard that can use it (I.E. PSP-1000 or PSP-2000 without the TA-88 v3 motherboard). I would use Time Machine. You can set up multiple firmwares that you can select from boot. You can set each firmware to launch with button combos like X+R will launch 5.00 M33-6 or X+L for 5.50 Gen-D. The only problem is you need a Pandora's battery to work properly.

    Next question, why not just use one CFW?

    He clearly stated it in the OP


    Edit: I'm not sure, but doesnt hellcats do a nand restore?
    Worth checking out the options on it.

    Edit: It seems I am talking nonsense.

    As much as I hate suggesting it this is an odd situation and assuming you are not going to budge there then there is a mod chip for some PSP versions. Pandora/Despertar del Cementerio pretty much killed any chance modchips had though so it might be hard to find and if memory serves it will be hard to attach.

    Actually there was only one, Undiluted Platinum, and it doesn't work with 3.xx+ Kernels, requiring hybrid firmwares.
    Neither they house a secondary NAND chip, they just read it from the PSP NAND, so no dual firmware.

    Just stay away from those [​IMG]

    And IIRC, Time Machine only works with few firmwares.

    well tried hellcat's recovery flasher. both firmwares wont be just restored because they give critical errors. and it sees 5.50 gen d-3 as 9.90 or something like that lol [​IMG]
