Pandora’s battery (unbrick your PSP)


[krazywhiteguy310] let me know about the announcement of the Pandora battery hack. It’ll cost you a Sony PSP battery to pull off the hack, but once you’re done, you can use it to jump start your bricked PSP to load up a memory imaged designed to unbrick the PSP. (I haven’t tested it, so I’m taking this on faith) Excellent news if you’ve bricked your PSP.

    naaaa hey guys I wanna know why most most of you here want to downgrade the firmware?
    as far as I know the latest firmware is will be the best… currently I upgrade my firmware from 3.90MM-3 to 5.00MM-3 firware and it was working fine I can play all the EBOOT games and it’s compatible to all previous firmware games as long as you’ll going to update the SEPLUGGINS of the PSP. I’ve got all this resources at http://www.pspiso.com go to games section and look for the account of HAKO everything regarding to the instructions of upgrading your firmware and using the pandoras battery is there. check it out and see it for your self…

    ive seen an advert for a battery that can be used for pandora but has a switch that lets it be used as a normal battery how can this work

  4. Sweet – thanks for the info.

  5. maxwell says:

    I agree 5.00MM-3 firmware is the best at the moment! I’m waiting for the breaking news ” the latest psp version can be hacked!!” sounds impossible huh..

  6. Pearce- Yes there is a battery that allows you to switch back and forth between Pandora mode and regular mode.

    I have a question about running ISOs. I downgraded my psp to v1.5 bout a year and a half ago and haven’t really done much ever since. I have the Devhook 0.46 which allows me to switch between 2.71 and 1.5. I wanted to play homebrew games and it worked great for me so far. However now that I found out you can play ISO files, I can only get couple ISO files to run on it. I’ve been out of this for a while now and looks like everything has changed. I just downloaded Pandora Deluxe 3.0. Will running that program change anything for my psp? And what the heck is a Pandora’s battery. When I was downgrading mine I never had to worry about anything like that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I just went fron devhook 0.56 on a 1.50 OFW to 5.0 M33-4 CFW last weekend. I hadn’t fooled with it for a while, like you.

    You need to go get Despertar del Cementerio version 8 and it helped me create a pandora battery and ramp up to 5.00 M33-4.

    I might have gone to 3.71 M33-3 before I went to 5.00. I forget.

    But one of the upgrades did TAKE OVER AN HOUR, so be patient, it really takes that long especially on a psp-1001.

    If you want a Pandora Battery for 16€ contact me!
    We also have Memory Stick pro duo 8Gb (22€)

  16. Ok, so i read your post and everything. The first thing someone needs to do before editing firmware and downgrading is purchasing a Pandora Battery and MMS if you haven’t gotten one already.
    One site that I recommend is this: http://www.psppandora.net
    I usually buy from there when I mod and hack for others, but that your choice if you want to get from them. It pretty cheap compared to everywhere else.
    After buying, if you need help let me know.

    Can we use a pandora’s battery to downgrade the latest PSP version 5.03?

    Also is it a risky operation in general?

    Thanks a bunch in advance for the replies.

  18. Pandora says:

    aadit – Yes you can downgrade the 5.03 firmware as long as your PSP isn’t the 3000.

  19. blue says:

    can i crack a PSP3000 which is version 5.02?
    if i could, will it be risky?

  24. Dear Heart says:

    without any of this this hack, what’s wrong with just leaving your psp-3004 alone and running Sony made games from that small CD?

  25. nominalis says:

    my 3k is perfect the way it is and i can get so many used games on umd for $10 at the pawnshop i’ll never be able to play them all. new titles too.

    and the 3k screen is so much better than the 2k. the colorspace mode is superior. the interlacing hype is a total lie.

    yeah, just get a 3k and use it, it does enough things well.

  26. steve says:

    Hello,
    I have been trying to make my own memory stick for about 2 weeks and can not get to the custom firmware screen. I am to the point where I just want to buy one. Can anyone recommend a website?

    I was looking as PandoraSales.com or Pandorabattery.net?

    Thank for any advise. Just do not want to ripped off.
