    Default Should I wait for Pandora battery?

    I've wanted a moddable psp for ages and was all set to get a 2nd hand 2000 model from game. However they were all pretty scratched up and manky - I was walking past a Sony center and happened to glance in the window display and sitting there in a glass display case was a pristine psp 1000 . To be homest it's one of these I wanted - I prefer the weighty feel and the build of them to the slims - so I snapped it up. It was running on firmware 2.01 - It's now up to 2.81 (after booting pes6 umd). I've ordered a Pandora and magic mem stick but I know you can downgrade the 1000 by upgrading then using a downgrade tool. My question is if I brick my psp trying this (because Im a psp NOOB) will the Pandora be able to sort it out or should I wait for the pandora battery to arrive. Had an email from the online store I bought it from saying they are awaiting stock ..
    Any advice would be appreciated

    yeah, if u brick ur psp while upgrading, u can unbrick it using pandora battery.

    since u are on 2.81 , u can install cfw without pandora battery.. here is a tutorial:

    Ok - so I read tht Tut - seems straight forward enough - Typical found this afer I ordered a pandora. Few questions though:-

    .should I reset back to default settings before beginning?
    .How likely am I to brick a 1000 psp? If I follow instructions
    .Is m33 5.00 the best, most up to date custom psp firmware?
    .If all goes well and Im up and running with cfw will emulators and iso's run straight of the mem card? I'm eager to try pspaue...

    Thanks

    yes, it is recomended.

    .How likely am I to brick a 1000 psp? If I follow instructions
    ensure that ur battery doesn't die or pop out while flashing custom firmware.

    .Is m33 5.00 the best, most up to date custom psp firmware?
    Most up to date firmware is 5.50 GEN B.IMO 5.00M33 is the best.

    .If all goes well and Im up and running with cfw will emulators and iso's run straight of the mem card? I'm eager to try pspaue...
    yes.

    If you follow instructions it is almost impossible to brick it. I have hacked many PSPs before Pandora existed and I never had a problem.

    When I'm updating to 5.03 official firmware the tutorial says

    "--NOTE-- If your PSP is anything below firmware 5.03 official, you will need to update to 5.03. Use this file. Place in /PSP/GAME/UPDATE/ and run"

    am I executing the file by going back into the psp xmb? sorry if this seems obvioous but Im a psp greenback - cheers.

    Got it working last night - Thanks for all your help freak - the only problem I had was in the guide it doesn't tell you to copy over the 4 giff images (fied eggs) it only tells you to copy over the eggsploit tiff if you have a fat psp.

    As soon as I copied the 4 fied eggs over it chickHen loaded straight away - you can imagine my delight having tried clicking on the single egsploit icon and rebooting over 30 times

    But Im up and running on m33 - 6 and loving it.

    Many Thanks
