I am new to the PSP scene I've just picked up a PSP phat (1000) that the previous owner had installed 5.00 M33-6 CFW onto. This is working fine but I'm looking into upgrading the firmware. I realise that we no longer use Pandora batteries to mod PSPs, but one can be useful to recover a bricked console, which is a nice safety blanket. So I was wondering whether I could or should convert my current normal battery to a Pandora one? I would rather do a software mod (flash the ID) than a hardware one (cut a trace). I only have the one battery and the one PSP, so to be useful when needed (i.e. at unpredictable times) I would want to keep it as a Pandora battery permanently. If I did so would it still work as a normal battery, i.e. charge up and power the PSP normally? Would I have any problems booting? I would want the console to boot normally if no buttons are held down, so as to be playable by non-technical folk. I've searched quite a lot but have come across contradictory info in old guides.
