    Guys,

    I've just got a phat psp, already hacked (firmware 3.80m33-5), now i wanted to update it to the newest firmware.

    My question... do i need a Pandora's Battery to ONLY update from 3.80 to the newest one? (i believe its 5.0m33 correct?) Any tutorial on update? (the topic pinned has a broken link)

    also where is the "safest" place to download the update? Is dl.qj.ne safe?

    thanks

    -Download the EBOOT of the official PSP firmware from http://rapidshare.com/files/154173870/500.PBP and put it in the root of the MS.
    -Put the CF Update folder (don't know where to download it, latest one is 5.00M33-6) under PSP/GAME on your MS.
    -Run the Update from the PSP under games section.
    -5.00M33! [​IMG]

    P.S: You don't need Pandora if your PSP is already hacked. [​IMG]

    Just select network update and everything should be done automatically.

    But it will update to an official firmware i think. I don't know if the dark_alex server was enabled in the 3.80 custom firmware. [​IMG]

    @Hero-Link: Have you downloaded the 5.00M33-6 Update folder? I haven't linked it in my previous post. XD
    You can grab it from here: http://rapidshare.com/files/186553068/500m33_6.zip and you have to put it in PSP/GAME on your MS.

    It wont upate you to the official firmware, 3.80m33-5 has been hacked so when you select network update it connects to Dark Alex's site and not Sony server.

    I think that feature was introduced only in later updates. XD
    Well, good to know. ^^

    Not quite...the M33 Network Update was incorporated on 3.80 M33. Try it on 3.71 M33-4 and you'll be wearing an unhappy face.

    I stand corrected, but at least I was correct in my first reply, he could have updated through Network Update [​IMG]
