    It looks like your guide centers around using ChickHEN. You might mention that if the user has a CUSTOM Firmware below 5.03 that they don't have to use ChickHEN. They can simply upgrade using Hellcat's Recovery Flasher and skip the pain and frustration of using ChickHEN (if they have OFFICIAL Firmware below 5.03, they still need to upgrade and use ChickHEN).

    Hello! This might be a very stupid question but I just bought a PSP via Ebay and was hoping to install custom firmware on it and I want to make sure I do things right...
    Do I need one of those "pandora batteries" to follow this tutorial? The current firmware installed on my PSP is 3.90 and - I believe - my motherboard is TA-082. I'm not quite sure what "creates pandora" means in the chart... Sorry for the noobness and thanks in advance for enlightening me!

    Your PSP is capable of creating a pandora. But you don't have to. Just upgrade to 5.03 and use ChickHEN to do the hack.

    hi my cfw is 4.01 m33-2 , this means that i can update to any cfw that i choose without installing any other custom firmwares?
    if yes then what is the best cfw released until now ( that works all the homebrew )?
