Well. You should go to the PSP News section and look for the 3.52M33 update. It'll tell you everything in there. I'd give you the link but I don't have it right off hand. But that's your best bet. From there, just update to 3.90M33 and you're entirely up to date. If you need anymore help, just ask.

Download 3.52m33 and read the readme you need to run a kxploit permenant patcher first which is included, then run the 3.52m33 upgrade, then download the last update and run it, from there you can upgrade to 3.80m33

You do not need to use the pandora's battery method as you're PSP is already running official firmware 1.5, which is homebrew friendly and allows a custom firmware to be installed.

You would need pandora if your PSP was running a higher firmware that cannot run homebrew, as in essence the custom firmware installer is a piece of homebrew.

If you do somehow brick your PSP, you can always get a mate to make you a pandora's battery (or buy one of the datel tool batteries that are the same thing) and restore it.
That's the beauty of pandora, it kicks in before the firmware is loaded, so is able to fix a PSP with a corrupted firmware install.
