Hacking the PSP

Everyone has hacked the PSP to put non-Sony firmware on.
You can still run your games, AND install homebrew stuff.

This was the original goal when I bought my PSP. I got distracted by actually playing games.
I finally got around to doing it.

I have the GOW edition PSP slim, it had Sony firmware V3.94 installed.

I sort of followed the instructions that I found here

Things you need:
Pandora Battery - modified battery to allow access to the PSP bootstrap mode,
I borrowed one
Sony memory stick - 1Gb stick works fine
PSP Grader v0.008 - installs firmware, I got it here
modified PSP firmware - overwrites the Sony firmware, I got it here

Connect the PSP to your PC; start USB mode.
Copy the Sony memory stick to PC
Format the Sony memory stick

Start PSP Grader
Locate the eboot.pbp in the
Download file to stick

Disconnect and power off the PSP
Remove battery
Insert memory stick (if you haven't)
Hold down the L button
Insert the Pandora Battery (often PSP auto-starts) and start PSP
Back up NAND
Restart PSP
Install 5.00 M33 (or similar)

I have spent all my time playing a Magic the Gathering Homebrew (Wagic) in stead of programming anything.
