So the screen on my psp is completely shot. you cant see anything. so rather than going and getting a new screen for 40 bucks, i decided to buy a video output cable. Well lo and behold, you cant update your psp while using video out. As far as i can get is on top of the update (its on the memory stick), and then try to select it, where it then tells me to switch to the screen. so what i need is someone to give me detailed instructions on what buttons to press to get this thing to update, while i cant see the screen. Im trying to update to firmware 5.03 so i can do haxx, if that info was needed. Any help would be much appreciated!

Do you have a psp and could possibly test this for me?

If your sound is working OK, that should probably be helpful.
Yeah. sounds works fine. Just realized imma have to wait till tomorrow though, as i dont have my charger till tomorrow, and its required.
IIRC, there is a button combo that can bypass that requirement, but I may be wrong. It may be to bypass the 75% battery requirement. Can't remember.
