    Intro:

    Lots of questions pop up in these forums lately on how to install Despertar del Cementerio (DC).
    Numerous threads on the matter are created, because the newbies can't find their answers.

    This is not a complete howto, but should get people in the right direction.
    And if they do have any questions, they can ask here instead of starting a new thread.

    What is DCv* ?

    DCv* is a powerfull tool created by the greatest devs in the psp scene. It is an evolved version of the Pandora's Battery. Pandora was first created to unbrick psp's. However Pandora wasn't compatible with the psp slim. Therefore DC was coded. The latest version (v4) has full compatibility with classic and slim psp's.

    DCv4 allows you to:
    - Write custom fw M33 3.80-5 to ANY model psp (regardless of fw version) to date
    - Write official fw 3.80 to ANY model psp (regardless of fw version) to date
    - Create a nand dump from the psp (the nand holds the fw on the psp)
    - Write a nand dump to the psp.

    NOTE: DO NOT USE A DUMP FROM ANOTHER PSP. IT WILL DESTROY THE IDSTORAGE. THERE'S NO WAY OF REGENERATING THE IDSTORAGE. THE ONLY WAY OF RECOVERING THE IDSTORAGE IS FROM A NAND DUMP FROM YOUR OWN PSP. THEREFORE ALWAYS MAKE A NAND DUMP BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING WITH DCv* !

    To let the memstick do it's magic you'll need a battery which will put the psp in 'service mode'. There's several options how to obtain such a battery.

    1) Create it with a homebrew capable psp. That's a psp running cfw or official 1.50 fw.

    NOTICE: Newer slims can't convert batteries due to $ony hardware revisions. If you are a slim owner, already running cfw, who wants to check if you can or cannot convert batteries, run the PSPident tool. You can find it in the attachments.
    Your slim can't convert batteries if the app displays these values:
    Tachyon:0x00500000
    Baryon:0x00234000
    Pommel:0x00000123

    Motherboard Type: Slim (02g)
    Motherboard Model: TA-085 v2


    2) Create it by hard modding a battery. This is not for beginners, it is potentially dangerous as you are opening your battery.
    3) Buy a battery from the internet. Your on your own on this one, as I do not promote the financial exploitation of psp devs.

    Once you have the battery all you need now are the correct files on the memstick. Once again there are several ways of putting them on.

    1) Create the stick using a homebrew capable psp.
    2) Create the stick without a homebrew capable psp.

    That's all the options we have. Now you know what DCv* is, where it came from and how you can get it.
    I'll put all the needed downloads and information below here in links and attachments.

    Downloads:

    If you do NOT have access to a homebrew capable psp use the following files:


    - Use my DCv4 AutoInstaller to install DCv4 on your memstick. Just download the pack, extract the archive and run it by clicking "Install DCv4.bat" and follow the instructions on screen.
    Mirror 1: Mediafire
    Mirror 2: Rapidshare
    This installer supports both XP and VISTA !
    Special thanks go to outer92 for his original batch file.


    - Hard modding your battery This will tell you exactly how and which chip to alter.

    - Free service Go here and let someone near you create you a DCv3 kit.

    If you have access to a homebrew capable psp (slim or classic) use the following files:

    -The 'DCv4 AutoInstaller' above (noobfriendly and for lazy people ;)).

    -To create DCv4 use the 1.50 EBOOT, the 3.40 BOOT and the 3.80 EBOOT. Also use the DCv4 attachment. It comes with a comprehensive readme.

    - To create the battery use one of the tools. Slim users and classic psp with M33 3.71 without 1.50 kernel use the 3.xx tool.
    If you are on M33 3.80, use the BatTool 0.5 as the others will not work.
    All tools will also allow you to convert your battery back to normal.

    That should get all of you started. I know it's not complete. For usage of DCv4, check the readme included.
    If you still have questions on DC, post them here please !!

    Some reminders:
    MAKE A NAND DUMP !!
    DO NOT USE A NAND DUMP FROM ANOTHER PSP !!
    USE DCv3 WISELY !!
    WHEN IN DOUBT...DON'T !!

    Nand reminder

    Never ever use someone else's nand dump on your psp
    The same goes for eeprom.bin from your battery

    I don't think a minor difference will confuse people. Also in my first sentence I explained the abbreviation. And if you take a look at the attached files even D_A leaves out the 'd' from 'del' and replaces it with an underscore.

    I left out the Multi Loader (amongst other tools), to keep it simple for first time users. But yes, that's a nice extra to install for those who want to keep their battery on standby.

    OK I'll give you that one....It's just when searching for DCv3 alot of people call it DDCv3....so how about putting all 3 versions of the abbreviation in there for searching ability....DCv3 DDCv3 D_Cv3 ect..

    @frazz this is the first thread (other than the one that stemmed this one) where I have seen it called DCv3 and not DDCv3.

    you're retarded if you use "DDCv3"
    its like the word "the" or "of", those words generally aren't counted in abbreviations.

    i love living in the USOA, oh wait, its USA.

    on topic: great guide FRanatic, lets see how many lazy people actually read it.

    Only on this forum would you get the most response from people arguing about whether its DCv3 or DDCv3 and not the actual guide.

    You gotta love it.

    Oh, and this is the only time I've ever seen it referred to as DDCv3. WTF?
