Do it and just install custom firmwire and it doesn't matter about umds.

You mean chip it, if yes then u need a umd to read the game from the memory card

You mean flash it? You can set the CFW to boot from the memory stick instead of the UMD.

EDIT : £10..!!! :w00t: I'd snatch his arms off... UMD's are so last year!

Are you sure you dnt need a umd to play games after flashing and where can I get a battery for it as he sold the battery to someone else

It might be enough to read the copyright so it might work. (also a psp even one without game functionality for 10 is still good)
2nd question: this technique doesn't require a Pandora battery to put cfw on.

You need to alter it to M33 driver (from memory) you'll need to upgrade to GENB 5.5 if you want to play Motorstorm of Fifa 10 etc...

Switch it on whilst holding the right shoulder button.

I think you then go into "configuration" and then UMD mode. Press "x" and it should change from "UMD required" to M33-Driver".

I don't have a PSP here, so it may be slightly different, but that is the general gist of how you do it.

Indeed, it did used to be the case that you needed a UMD in the drive, but it is not any longer.

What will that do, sorry im not good with technology :oops:

CFW = custom firmware or what you describe as 'chipping'
this will enable the psp to run unsigned code off the memory card eg homebrew, emulators or illegal backups of umd games

newer 2003 psps cant be hacked so you might want to have a read at the links posted earlier in this thread
they will tell you all you need to know

PS let me know if you want to sell either of your psps, im after two phats or a phat and a slim for xmas :thumbsup:
