    Default The MMSX-8: Install 5.00 M33-4 the easy way...

    Release as of 1/12/09


    The MMSX-8 is a universal "unbricker" class MMS (Magic Memory
    Stick) that (when combined with a Pandora Class Battery), will install
    CFW (Custom Firmware) 5.00 M33-4 onto any PSP, phat or slim.
    When using the MMSX-8 it does not matter what firmware, custom or
    official, your PSP is currently running. There is no need to
    downgrade. If you have firmware 3.52 or higher, you must have a
    Pandora’s Class Battery. If your PSP's firmware is lower than 3.52
    there are other ways to install CFW, but that will not be discussed in
    this guide and the use of a MMSX-8 is still highly recommended.
    The MMSX-8 does not just install CFW 5.00 M33-4; it comes
    loaded with additional features


    Note: This guide does not apply to PSP that house a TA-088 v3 motherboard.



    Well bye ya'll. Our old site is back up and we are returning to whence we came If someone needs advice for this installer or wants the updates please visit www.psphacks.com/forums and find me, I'm P12 there.


    Since this is just the release it will be very basic. Proper files and such for each type PSP will be later added and a nice little guide in .pdf format will also be included.

    Start by reading this guide then download the included files and installing the needed software on your PC. All necessary files can be found at the bottom of this post.


    Included in this release are:
    13 themes (from various creators and sites, none are mine)
    CXMB 3.3 plugin
    a music plugin
    cwcheat updater and plugin
    usbversionfake plugin
    popsloader plugin
    and a screenshot plugin (hit the mute button to use)



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Connect your Memory Stick to your PC using your desired method. I suggest using a quality Card Reader/Writer due to faster speeds and more stable transfers.

    I recommend running FakeCard although it is not necessary, IMO it speeds up "fake" and "real" cards. You can format your mem stick VIA your PSP or any other method you see fit to do so.

    Run FakeCard:
    Ensure that the correct drive path is listed in the "Type In Your PSP Drive" box. Enter 5XX into the "Type In Your PSP Version" box and hit the start button down at the bottom. Follow the onscreen directions, when the DOS window dissapeares click the "CLICK ME WHEN FORMAT HAS FINISHED" button under the Start button. You're done with FakeCard now.

    Run PSPgrader v006:
    Start PSPgrader and make sure the correct path is listed in the "PSP Memory Stick" field, ensure that the box beside "Format Memorystick" is left unchecked, make sure that the entry field beside "4.01 Eboot" is left blank and click the "Inject IPL Only" button on the bottom left. When the progress box shows "All Done" click "Ok" and close PSPgrader.

    Build the MMSX-8:
    Extract all of the files from the "MMSX-8 Files" download and "copy and paste" them into the root of your memory stick (the root is the first thing you see when you open the path to your memory stick on your PC). A box should warn you that you are about to overwrite existing files click "Yes to all". When the copy is done close the window.

    Installing CFW using the MMSX-8:
    Put your newly built MMSX-8 into your PSP. Hold X while you insert your Jigkick/Pandora battery (dont let go of X for atleast 7 seconds). When the install prompt appears click "Install 5.00 M33". This process should take about 1min 45sec. It tends to hang up around 4% for a few seconds, dont freak out, its normal. When the installation is completed hit X to reboot your PSP. When your PSP is finished re-booting hit the select button to access the M33 VSH MENU and change the settings to:

    CPU CLOCK XMB - 333/166
    CPU CLOCK GAME - 266/133
    USB DEVICE - Memory Stick
    UMD ISO MODE - NP9660
    ISO VIDEO MOUNT - NONE


    hit select to return to the xmb and save your settings. (these are just recommendations)

    Turn your PSP completely off by holding the power button up untill the green power light turns off. Then hold the Right Shoulder button (dont let go for atleast 5 seconds) while turning the PSP back on. You are now in the "M33 Recovery Menu". Under "Plugins" enable cxmb.prx [VSH]. Select "Back", select "Exit". When your PSP is finished re-booting you are done!!!

    You can change the theme if you like, there are currently 13 themes included but the last one is my fav...


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    DOWNLOAD LINKS:
    - MMSX Release Files.zip
    - Needed PC Applications(there extra apps in here that you might find usefull)

    Please post a negative or postive comment if you use the MMSX-8 installer. Bug issues need to be ironed out and this is the first site the MMSX-8 is being released on.

    The only bug issues I can think of at this time are:
    Issues using a Sony MS: Switch to a SanDisk if possible
    Issues after using the PSP to transfer files: Use a card reader
    Issues with PSPgrader: If your using XP you must have atleast .NET Framework 2.0, for Vista you must select "Run as Administrator".
    If there is still the 2% bug: I HAVE NO FREAKIN IDEA!!!

    Special thanks to "The Crew"...




    You must enter a three digit code to use Megaupload...

    thanks
    Yes if you have 5.03 OFW or lower. If you have lower update to 5.03, then you use chickHEN R2 to enable HomeBrew on your PSP, the you use the Homebrew app 'Hellcats Recovery Flasher' and it puts CFW on your PSP.
