    It works on the slim now you have to download files named "pandora_slim and pandora_slim%" see the tutorial link in my first post.

    having thought about it and re read the article I think you’re in trouble :oops:, although you have the Pandora battery, you need a PSP running CFW to run the section that extracts the files from the 1.50 eboot that creates the first part of the magic stick. You need to complete this section first before it will convert to a slim version…..

    you need to find someone local to you that has a phat psp running CFW

    scotty this is why probably my 1gb card is dead,but are 100% sure the mem stick cant be created on a slim psp with M33 3.71 firmware ?? dark _alex said he will be releasing the unbricker for slim psp in the next few days so does this means finally the mem stick can be created on slim psp with CFW ??

    Question – Is you’re slim running 3.60MM CFW or higher
    If the answer is yes then try the tutorial (skipping the Pandora battery section) to recreate the stick, it can’t harm you’re PSP as the work is to convert the mem stick not the PSP!

    I’m 100% sure you can’t create a magic stick without a PSP (any) having CFW.
    When DA releases the un-bricker for the slim you’re still going to need a functioning PSP with CFW to create that magic stick

    mine has the M33 3.71 installed at the moment.

    scotty so on the installation link do i follow from step 1 to 10 only to create the magic stick ??

    & what does this means :
    .

    also do you think i should wait for Dark_Alex's new slim psp unbricker to make the mem stick & battery with it ?? or is it just a matter of swapping some folders on the current magic mem stick.

    Good news then you’re running a CFW, so there’s no reason not to give it a go.

    You need to follow steps 1 - 12

    When you unzip the Pandora package there are a number of folders I’d copy the file msinst.exe from the msinst folder to the root of your hard drive to make life easer

    You get a command prompt by Clicking start, then run then key cmd and click OK

    Then from a command prompt (black box) make sure you’re at c:\ if not key cd\ and press enter

    Then key

    msinst.exe X msipl.bin

    x represent the drive letter of you memory stick when connected to your pc.

    I guess the PSP slim unbricker is going to be along the same lines as the original maybe worth waiting a day or two.
