    psp Pandora Installer for 3.xx kernels

    News/release from Hellcat

    Preface?
    ----------
    NEVER, NEVER EVER, NEEEEVER USE THIS TO CONVERT A SLIM BATTERY TO PANDORA!
    YOU WILL KILL YOUR BATTERY! ONLY USE WITH FAT'S BATTERY!

    ONLY USE WITH FAT'S BATTERY! ONLY USE WITH FAT'S BATTERY!
    ONLY USE WITH FAT'S BATTERY! ONLY USE WITH FAT'S BATTERY!
    ONLY USE WITH FAT'S BATTERY! ONLY USE WITH FAT'S BATTERY!

    It runns on the Slim, YES, but: ONLY USE WITH FAT'S BATTERY!

    OK?


    Now What?
    -----------
    The original Pandora-Tools are dependant on 1.50, if you are on 3.71-M33
    or the Slim you're out of luck - the don't run.

    But fear no more ;-)

    This is an installer app for a base Pandora setup.
    It runns under *ANY* currently known kernel (that is 1.50 to 3.71) and
    gives you three options:

    1) Make normal battery to Pandora one
    2) Make Pandora battery to normal one
    3) Install a full 1.50 to the memstick, including the Pandora

    And yes, it does run on 3.71 - I tested it myself ;-)


    How?
    ------
    To use the installer, first you need the 1.50 updater EBOOT named
    as "UPDATE.PBP" in the root folder of your memorystick.
    As a regular Pandora user you'll have that already, if not: copy it!

    Now copy the "pan3xx" folder from this archive to
    /PSP/GAME/ on your memorystick - and run it!

    Done


    Cool?
    -------
    Yes!
    Since this installer installs a full 1.50, and not only a subset like
    the original installer, you're only one tiny file edit away from
    booting a full 1.50 from your memstick to run additional tools or
    installers from there before/instead of directly flashing your PSP.

    At this point, let me suggest to install the "Extended Pandora Menu" ;-D

    I'm having just a little diffuculty with this. You should be able to do this with the official Sony firmware 3.5 right. I can't seem to get it to work.

    Never mind I found my answer. I guess I'll just have to keep looking for a 1.5 or a pandora battery and magic stick.

    Does this bypass the need for Windows command-line shenanigans?

    Yes.It creates an Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick in user mode (3.XX mode). The normal Pandra Battery Creator runs only in Kernel mode (i.e. 1.50 mode). Itīs usefull to people whos is stuck in 3.71 M33 and wants revert back to the good and old CFWs which haves 1.50 kernel mode. And it bypass all of these "ugly" command lines.

    Personaly for me CFW without kernel mode is useless since 90% of my homebrew requires it and some doesnt run in e-loader.

    No.

    The important part here is that the original Pandora's mspformat executable barely worked in Vista or Linux, and does not work at all in Win98.

    No.
    I'm sorry, but it does have kernel mode. That is a common misconception.

    Saracchini : You misunderstand kernel mode. 1.50 or whatever version has nothing to do with it. It's just that the 3.6+ kernel had some commands changed around and added as needed to work with the new slim hardware as well as the old hardware. The result is 1.50 kernel mode programs need to be updated.

    The latest screenshot app and CWcheat and such and a few others already use kernel mode! They just use the 3.60+ kernel instead.
