So if you just bought a PSP and want to get into custom firmware, this is the right place to be. If you already have custom firmware on your PSP and just want to upgrade to 5.00,
skip below to the 5.00 section. If you want to bring your PSP to 4.01 M33
skip below to the 4.01 section. This works on all PSP’s that came from the factory with anything less than 4.00 Official Firmware (OFW).

Requirements for Hacking a Factory PSP:

1. PSP Pandora Battery
2. Memory Stick Pro Duo (64mb to 8gb TESTED so far – any will do).
3. psp-grader-v005-lite-setup
4. Official PSP 3.90 Firmware.

Steps:
1. Install PSP Grader on your computer.

2. Run PSP Grader and select the location of the 3.90 firmware and drive for your memory stick

3. Hit run and let the program create a “Magic Memory Stick” for you.

4. Your Memory stick is now ready, insert the Pandora’s Battery whilst holding the L should button on the PSP. Once the IPL has loaded on the PSP simply press the X button. Wait. After around 1 – 3 minutes the Flash shall be done, press X to shutdown the psp, it is now safe to remove the pandora battery. Its is very important to just wait and not switch off the PSP or remove the Memory Stick or Pandora’s Battery, it could result in a brick if you do not wait.

5. Once that is done, you can format the memory stick with your psp to use to load games. Games are normally loaded in the “ISO” folder. you need to hit select on the PSP to get the ISO mode correct. Use the “Sony NP9660″ one.

This was the easiest way I could find to get the PSP to 3.90 m33-3, from there you are going to just run one more updates to reach 5.0 m33-3

Steps to finish the hack to Version 5.00….

If you already have custom firmware you can skip the steps above and jump directly here.
