    I was deleting my custom themes in my flash0 and i didnt know what i was doing so when i restarted my psp it worked.... but when i went back into my ms and deleted some themes i had from b4 for 3.71m33 (cuz i downgraded from 3.71m33 to 3.52m33 for applecor theme) and next thing i know, i close my psp, open it and BAM! nothing comes on cept a green light for 20 seconds... then it closes
    im pretty sure that means its bricked rite?
    well if so, how can i unbrick it... is pandora the only way? and if so then can i make pandora off of a psp with OFW? or do u HAVE to have CFW for pandora?

    And i heard somin bout DAX's UNIversal unbricker.... wud that work?
    anyone got a guide on these things?

    ps my friend has a psp 3.71 and he wants to downgrade... anyone got a guide on how to get from 3.71 to 1.5?

    Have you got access to the recovery menu? If so then you will not need pandora. Mail back and ill answer the rest if you cant get into recovery mode

    This is a full brick. You will need pandoras battery to downgrade.

    The only way to make a pandora battery without a CFW / 1.50 PSP is to hardmod the battery and have a working PSP that you can plug into your PC so your PC can put the files onto the MS for you.

    DaX's Universal unbrciker requires pandoras battery, they are basically the same thing but the universal unbricker also unbricks slim and can be used as a normal battery.

    To downgrade from 3.71 you also need a pandora battery.

    You need a PSP with Custom Firmware NOT Official Firmware. What firmware is he currently running on?

    As long as the MS is 64MB - 4GB it should be fine but a few people have had problems with the fake 4GB MS Sticks. 32MB doesnt work.

    You can use the memory stick normally again and after you hardmod the battery you can convert it back to a normal battery but you need to be very skilled at soldering. Check this link, its not a video but it does have picture within links in the fourm.
