    hi, this is my first ever post, i was messing around flashing my psp with custom themes for firmware 3.71 M33 and once i exited recovery mode, my psp didn't start up, and doesn't start up anymore. And for some odd reason i can't even access the recovery menu.This has never happened to me(usually able to go into recovery mode). My question is that can pandoras battery fix this, or does my psp have to be able to go into recovery to get my psp working again. Is this unbrickable? Thanks.

    Yes you need a working PSP.

    Do you have a card reader that is compatible with Pro Duo Memory Sticks?

    Some users have issues using Vista but some don't. All you can do is try it. Then Hardmod the Battery to a Pandora Battery.

    Go HERE and folow this guide for this option.

    You don't need to go and buy another PSP. All you need to do is create a magic memory stick and if it doesn't work on Vista, try XP. I'm sure one of your family members or friends has a computer with a memory card reader running XP. Then all you need is a pandora battery, I bought mine from amazon.com. It's called a DATEL TOOL BATTERY. It didn't cost me much, £15, so roughly 30 USD.

    if the green light comes on when i turn my psp on , then goes off in 5-10seconds....does that mean i still have to make pandora's battery? I dont understand how the pandora's battery and magic memory stick will fix my psp that can't even access recovery mode...
