The tutorial was great btw, however after assembling everything into my new blue Mod i was left with a white plastic piece and a spring witch is in my psp 3001 models , not sure but i see in the last picture of this tutorial you have the white piece left in the drive. it is located behind the cd rom part near the top of the psp where the 2 x holes are. it sucks cause it dont close properly without the white piece and theres also 1 of the 2 springs not mentioned in this tutorial neither im trying to figure out where it goes. But thanks for this guide as it has helped me alot..
