    Requirements:
    :idea: a PSP Slim or a PSP Regular
    :idea: USB Cable (works with any, even the one from Sixaxis PS3 controller or a Canon usb)
    :idea: Service Battery (Datel tool, service mode battery, pandora battery, any)
    :idea: PSP Grader Light - http://v2.x-projects.org/index.php?a...tpmod;dl=item7
    :idea: Memory Card pro duo 256mb-4gb (tested with 4gb) Sony and Sandisk works fine. (1gb recommend)

    Some people were asking for PSP Grader v001 since the newest one is v005
    Here is the Link to the v001 download
    http://rapidshare.de/files/39836415/...Setup.rar.html

    Step-by-step easy instructions - This guide will do so you flash m33 to your psp
    Download and install psp grader light to your pc. [any folder]

    Run psp grader, you will see 2 boxes at top.
    http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/4820/74394754sv1.jpg
    Download 1.50 here: http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/4
    Download 3.80 here: http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/1377
    Unzip the files, select the corresponding files with 'Open'
    PSP grader will rename the eboot files to 150 and 380 even if they aint called that in zipped file.

    Connect the usb cable to your pc, then connect ur psp to the usb cable, make sure the memory stick is inserted in your psp that you wanna format. Make a backup if you have any files u want to save on the memory disk before usage, it will get formated. PSP grader will find your PSP and then select YES. then select Start.

    Your memory card is formated, you now have a "magic memory stick". unplug the PSP from usb cable. remove the battery;
    if you have a pandora battery, remove your regular battery and insert pandora battery

    if you have a datel tool battery, remove your regular battery and insert datel tool battery
    http://www.consolesource.com/ecomm/i...ra-battery.jpg
    if you have a service mod tool switcher, insert your regular battery, you will see a green light glowing, (the right one) then click the button in middle, it will switch to left one, remove battery and insert in psp.

    Remember: When inserting the battery, always hold the L trigger button !

    When the screen has loaded, hit X. Wait a couple of minutes. Don't turn off your PSP while the install. When it's done hit X to shutdown the PSP.

    Now you have flashed the PSP with 3.80 m33, remove the pandora battery, datel battery or if you have a datel service mode tool switcher, remove battery from psp, insert back , the left light should grow green, hit the button, it should switch to right, then insert it back to PSP.

    [This guide will learn you how to upgrade to the most stable m33 version as of date]

    Startup your PSP, go to Settings > System settings > System information
    It should say 3.80 M33, if it does you've done so far so good.

    Download official 3.90 upgrade: http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/1406
    Download CFW m33 3.90: http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/1407
    unzip, then rename the official 3.90 upgrade to 390.PBP
    connect ur usb again, go to X:\PSP\GAME\ and put the update folder from m33 3.90 inside there, and put the 390.PBP in the update folder too.

    Disconnect from USB, go to Game on your PSP , then Memory stick, there should be an updater. Click it, wait for install, it shouldnt say "Can't find 390.PBP" if you have the 390.PBP inside the folder and if you have no internet connection you dont have to download it wireless either via the PSP. Wait for install.

    Now you have 3.90 m33 installed, now grab 3.90 m33-3:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/1447
    Unzip file, connect ur PSP to USB (again), remove the folder UPDATE in X:\PSP\GAME, then upload the new UPDATE folder to X:\PSP\GAME from the m33-3 download, disconnect from USB (again) go to game, memory card, run the installer.

    You should now have 3.90 m33-3 installed! So what now?
    Connect your PSP to USB,
    in the X:\ folder you can make the following folders (if you havnt got em)
    X:\VIDEO --> This is where you put all videos in, only .mp4 works
    X:\ISO --> For running .cso and .iso files (PSP games)
    X:\PSP\
    \PSP\GAME\ (should already exist) --> Put all your homebrews in here
    \PSP\PHOTO\ --> Your photos (wallpapers .BMP files with resolution 300x170)
    \PSP\THEME\ --> Your downloadable themes
    \PSP\MUSIC\ --> Your music, .mp3 works
    \PSP\SAVEDATA\ --> Your saved games store here

    PSX and Popsloader?!

    If you wanna play PSOne games, you have to download Popsloader,
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=118794
    and make a folder called X:\seplugins\ , put all the files inside there.
    The games should be in "eboot.pbp" format and put in \PSP\GAME\psx-gamename\eboot.pbp

    THIS IS IF YOU HAVE PSP PHAT ONLY (the classic psp)

    After you've installed M33, you need 1.5 kernal support for "phat".
    Note: The 1.5 kernel is for PHATS only not slims.

    1.5 Kernal Addon patch v2 For 3.90 m33 (fat psp's only, not 4 slims).

    http://www.sendspace.com/file/1ar5kp

    3.71 fatmsmod.prx patch (improves memcard read speed).

    http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?zzmyy5m3jwm

    Installation:
    Move the 'fatmsmod.prx' file to the root. (X:\)
    Move the 'fatmspatch' folder to X:/PSP/GAME and run after you updated to 3.90 M33-3.

    -Moved to Tutorials-



    Plenty of tutorials already covering the same topic, but this is nice and simple and easy to follow.

    One thing you should do is add image tags for the image links you have in the tutorial:

    [img]image link[/img]
