    Hello!

    I simply want some online stores (in Canada if possible) where I can buy a service battery for the PSP. I see a Datel on GamerSection.ca : http://www.gamersection.ca/product_info.php?products_id=695

    But is it a good price ? With taxes and shipping charges, it will cost me 43$. I know that eBay have some kits that include a battery and a memory stick ready to go, but price seems to high for me (70 to 100$ US).

    And just to confirm that the Pandora's Ultimate Magic Stick will allow me to downgrade my PSP from the firmware 3.80...

    By the way, where to buy a 2GB or 4GB memory stick cheap and reliable ? Is it better to buy a MS-to-microSD adater and a microSD instead ?

    Thank you!

    Do plan to only modify YOUR psp?

    If so, why don't you just get someone to modify it for you?

    You're in Canada. I'm in Canada too. If you want, you can send it my way and I could hack it for you at no cost. All you would pay is shipping.

    No, probably more than one in the future...
    I want to do it to be able to switch back from a firmware to another.

    Ah okay. Sorry, can't help you there. I made my battery and wouldn't know where to buy 'service' batteries.

    If you need to switch back from one firmware to another, you'll need a PSP Phat and run DevHook on it. That'll let you firmware-hop. Slims can't do that.

    Nobody ?

    Another question... If I make backup ISO of my games on a memory stick, will the save files written with the original game (UMD) will work with the backup game ?

    There's no point in buying a Magic Memory Stick. Just use Ediblebirds thread and make your own. You can reformat it to a normal one.

    Yes.

    Then, it is why I simply want to buy a Datel battery or something like that. Is the standard battery converted into Pandora found on eBay are reliable ?
