Convert your PSP to Custom Firmware

PSP for Dummies > Converting your PSP to Custom Firmware using a Pandora battery

This is the nitty gritty guide on converting your PSP to custom firmware by means of a Pandora battery. If you don’t want to go through the trouble of creating a Pandora battery, you can opt to use the Pandora-less guide: Convert your PSP to custom firmware without pandora.

How to install Custom Firmware on your PSP

Requirements

  1. A Hackable PSP.  Again if you don’t know what a hackable PSP is, please READ: Can my PSP have custom firmware installed?
  2. A Pandora Battery, you can either buy one here or convert an original Sony PSP Battery
  3. A Memory Stick Pro Duo to Magic Memory Stick [at least 64MB – 4GB]

If you are wondering as to what a Pandora Battery is, read the Terms and Definitions part of my CFW for dummies guide.

  1. Making a Magic Memory Stick

    • Download PSP Grader: Mirror 1
    • Extract the file to a folder to your computer
    • Connect your PSP into the PC.  Backup any data on the Memory Stick Pro Duo on your hard drive.  This is because you need to reformat the Memory Stick and all data on it will be lost
    • Run PSP Grader. Once it has opened, select ‘Download’. This will download the 5.00 update file needed for installing custom firmware. Do note that the download speed is highly dependent on your connection.
    • Once the download finishes, under ‘Target Memory Stick’, select the drive letter of your PSP. Check the box that says ‘Format Memory Stick’.
    • Select ‘Create Pandora Stick”
    • Congratulations, you now have a Magic Memory Stick
  2. Making a Pandora Battery

    If you didn’t buy a Pandora battery from this link, you can opt to create one yourself but you need a second PSP with custom firmware installed.

    • Download the Pandora installer: Mirror 1
    • Extract the file to a folder to your computer
    • Connect your PSP into the PC.  Backup any data on the Memory Stick Pro Duo on your hard drive.  This is because you need to reformat the Memory Stick and all data on it will be lost
    • Copy the “pan3xx” Folder to X:PSP\GAME where X is the drive letter assigned to your memory stick
    • Disconnect your PSP and turn it off

    Now to turn a normal battery to a pandora battery:

    • Insert the Battery you want to convert into your PSP and turn your it on.
    • On your XMB run the Pandora Installer for 3.xx+ -R4b-
    • Once Pandora Install is running, press “X” to go to the main menu.
    • Scroll down to “Battery Options” and press “X”
    • Scroll down to “Dump Battery Serial to File” and press “X” (this will backup the battery serial to your memory stick)
    • Select “Make Battery Pandora” and press “X”
    • The Battery serial in the top left should change to “0xffffffff” (If the battery serial doesn’t change then your PSP can’t write to the battery or the battery is not compatible.  If it’s either of the two, stop now.)
    • Scroll down to “Back to main menu” and press “X”
    • Choose “Quit” and press “X” and the program will exit
    • Congratulations, you now have a Pandora Battery.
    • Note that you can’t use the Pandora battery for normal gameplay, hence you need an extra battery

  3. Installing Custom Firmware

    • Charge your Battery to at least 78%.  This is to prevent your PSP from turning off during installation and bricking.
    • Put the Magic Memory Stick and Pandora Battery in your PSP
    • Turn your PSP on while holding down the left shoulder button. Once the IPL has loaded on your PSP, press X. Your PSP will begin installing Custom Firmware.
    • When this process is finished, press X to shut down your PSP.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure you press X to shut down your PSP before removing the Pandora Battery or Magic Memory Stick.  If you don’t, you could brick your PSP.
    • One your PSP is off, you can replace the battery and the memory stick with the ones you want to use.
    • Congratulations, you now have Custom Firmware installed.
  4. After installation notes

    When booting up your PSP for the first time, hold the R Trigger to enter the Recovery Menu.  Here’s a few configurations that you’d want to set to get the best experience:

    • Find the UMD Mode option and set this to M33 Driver or Sony NP9660
    • Find the Use M33 network update, and enable it. Now you can use the network update to update your custom firmware.

    After installing custom firmware, here’s a few things that you might want to do.
    IF you don’t have a spare, you may want to turn your Pandora battery back to a regular one. Of course this beats the purpose of creating one earlier but just in case, here’s how you do it

    • Place the Pandora installer on your Memory Stick [you can get it above]
    • Insert the Pandora Battery and magic memory stick into your PSP, your PSP will turn on automatically.
    • Select ‘Test M33′ and your PSP will load as normal
    • On the XMB select Pandora Installer for 3.xx+ -R4b-
    • Press X to enter the menu
    • Go to Battery Options, and select Set Battery Serial From File
    • Congratulations your battery is now normal again!
    • Exit the program, and restart your PSP.  You can now use the battery for normal operations.

Your PSP Phat or PSP Slim is now running Custom Firmware. If you want to update to the latest custom firmware version (which is currently at 5.00 M33-6), check out this 5.00 M33 installation guide.

If you’re having problems, don’t understand the instructions or need some other help, post a comment.

Have Something To Say ?

    why do we need custom firmware for our psp’s? I just want 2 download free games..and I’m kind of a beginner..I have the limited edition jack and daxter psp..can u please help? THANK U!

  2. Onyx June 18, 2009 Reply

    I did everything up to making the pandora batt. Everything else worked smoothly. However, my psp is saying it cant run the program and just stops right there. I have a reg PSP-1001 so this ought to be compatible. I also didnt understand the significance to having another pandora batt, no where in the tut does it say when to use it. Can someone shed some light, please? I really want this psp at its fullest potential

    • sylv3rblade June 18, 2009 Reply

      Having 2 batteries (ergo you have one regular battery and one pandora battery) can save you the trouble of remaking pandora if you need to re-flash your PSP to install a different firmware.

      If all else fails, you can always ask (sometimes pay) someone to do this for you.

    • sylv3rblade June 20, 2009 Reply

      Try entering the recovery menu by turning off your PSP (not standby), holding the R button then turning it on.

      • jimo June 20, 2009 Reply

        still can’t work coz i can’t turning off my psp, it will turn off itself for about few second… and also can’t entering the recovery menu.. does it has another way?

        • sylv3rblade June 20, 2009

          Sounds like a brick. Don’t worry, just repeat step 4 of this guide (ergo, just re-Pandora your PSP) and it should be fixed.

        • jimo June 21, 2009

  11. Drablade June 24, 2009 Reply

    buy a tool battery. Look it up using google and it will pop up. It costs anyway between 35-50 dollars. the tool battery has a button that allows you to choose between having it as pandora or having it as a normal battery. The directions that comes with the battery will explain everything. It’s worth it.

    thanx….. A lot but my major question still is ccan i do this eventhough my psp is on ofw 5.50

    Hi,

    New to all this.. Have a PSP 2003 with 3.71 on. I want to get the latest CFW (5.5 GEN-A or GEN-B). Do I need to go through the pandora / magic memory stuff to install CFW M33 first?? Then how do I get the GEN CFW on? I have also seen loads of stuff about Chicken2 in relation to the GEN-A CFW, is this an alternative method to the pandora battery method??

    Any guidance will be appreciated..

    • sylv3rblade July 14, 2009 Reply

      you can start by reading this guide. The first step is to check whether your PSP can even install custom firmware.

  24. Matt July 14, 2009 Reply

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick response. From what I gather I can install CFW, the serial I have begins with HB268XXXX with OFW 3.71 installed. From what I have read, I need to use the pandora with magic memory to first get M33 CFW. I have since seen mention of Chickhen for the GEN-A CFW which claims not to need pandora (would prefer to go this option but have no idea which is best or even if I can). Sorry for being a pain, am a complete novice..

    • sylv3rblade July 15, 2009 Reply

      You can install CFW via ChickHen (it’s linked in the guide) if you don’t want to or can’t use pandora. It’s probably the best course of action for you. The only draw back is that you can’t turn off your PSP.

        • sylv3rblade July 15, 2009

          If it’s a hackable PSP, you just need a Pandora Battery.
          If it’s a hackable PSP BELOW 5.50 OFW (which means 5.03) you can install custom firmware without pandora 😀
          If it’s a TA-088v3 motherboard PSP-2000 or PSP-3000 then you’re screwed.

  34. Tiexandrea August 19, 2009 Reply

    i just wanted to express my sincerest gratitude to the person/people behind this guide (and of course, all of its attached required files). this guide has been very easy to use, it speaks in plain english and is devoid of the unnecessary techie explanations that plagued most of the other guides written by people who just wanted to bloat their e-penises.

    just wanted to say something though. on PART 4, it said to insert the Pandora’s Battery, and then turn on the PSP while holding the L button. it’d be useful if you edited it a little by saying that “you have to have the Magic Memory Stick already inserted, then plug in the Pandora’s Battery while holding the L button” so as to avoid confusion (because that part kinda confused me a little).

    well, again, thanks for this guide, and now i’m off to play some homebrew. ^_^

      yes, you really need to downgrade it by using a pandora battery because 5.03 and below are the only firmwares you can download iso games and even if you have firmware 5.03 and below you still have to make it a custom firmware.

    Thanks for this guide. Very helpful indeed. I am a noob at this.

    By the way, a lot of people in youtube have been posting videos about how to make pandora batteries. Usually it involves taking a spare battery apart and cutting off a chip on the circuit board inside. My question is: Which is the most effective way of creating a pandora battery? Is it through the method that you have suggested in this blog or is it through battery hacking (literally chopping)? I’m just confused as to what is better. Thanks in advance!

    Hey mate! Thx so much for the great tutorials!!

    I bought my psp slim and installed CFW 3.90 M33-3 a long time ago. It’s actually been a long time since I don’t use my PSP, so it still has the same CFW. Is it safe to update the CWF through network update (consider that it is enabled)?

    Thx again!

      Nope. But there’s a cfw meant for 6.31. I’m working on the post at the moment

    Thank you very much. Creating a pandora wasn’t as hard as I thought!

    I can confirm 110% that this works with PSP 2000 (Japanese model) which has HJ.

    Thanks again for the useful tut sylv3blade.

    hey. i have PSP 3000 and when i go to open the installer for the battery it says “this game cannot . The data is corrupted.”

    • sylv3rblade June 26, 2011 Reply

      Please read the warning. It says only for hackable PSPs (no PSP-3000). Also if you want to install custom firmware, start with this guide.
