    Hi all,

    Im about to go buy the PSP Slim Media Manager pack tomorrow. Just wondering what else I need to buy so that I can install custom firmware on the PSP.

    Thanks.

    hmm.. y buy the media manager..? i assume it cost more.. cause it does here in canada. just get the core pack, or one of the pack with games like the daxer or star wars. wat u need is a memory stick, which the pack with games will include. and a hacked psp(from a freind) or a datel battery to hack ur own psp.

    So, I need to buy a PHAT battery and a smaller sized Pro Duo.

    You can make the Pandora battery and memory stick without the use of a homebrew PHAT psp right? Because none of my friends have PSPs at all.

    The reason I want the media manager set is because you get the 4GB memory stick in it and if Im going to be using homebrew I dont care about the game. CSO/ISO loading is fully functional on the slims right?

    o ok, how much does the pack cost? cause no a days 4 gig stick are rather cheap, like ~60 bucks, but if thats the case, that non of ur freinds have psp, go buy the Datel battery, its basically a commercial company that made the pandora battery with a memory stick. is rather cheap 2.

    Well its like $288 for a PSP with a movie. Or $288 for a yellow one with the simpsons game. Or $388 with a 4GB Pro Duo.

    These are AUSTRALIAN prices by the way. 4GB Pro Duos are $95AUD here.

    I can get 10% off those prices too. But Id have to get another pro duo and a spare battery. I dont know where you can buy those Datel batteries in Australia.

    Datel Pandoria like batteries are only sold on their website.

    If you have a friend with a custom firmware PSP, they can make you one instead.

    If you plan on putting movies on your PSP, download Super Converter (google it, its free).

    I can get a Datel Tool (Pandora Battery) for $50AUD delivered.

    I dont have a friend or know anyone at all who has a custom firmware PSP.

    I think Ill just but the following;

    Simpsons pack + 4GB Pro Duo + 256/512 Pro Duo + Datel Battery. Should total up around $400AUD.

    Thats my plan. You can make the memory stick without a PSP fat right?

    Sounds about right.

    I believe you make the memory stick via your computer. Check the guide area here for step by step instructions. I haven't made my Pandora yet.
