    I have a (hopefully)simple question:

    I have a fully bricked PSP fat with 5.00 m33(i think) cfw, a hard-modded pandora battery, and a magic memory stick (all of which i was using when my PSP got bricked)

    I watched some tutorials on youtube and they all say i need to take my battery & memory stick out and then replace them with a Pandora & MMS; but im already using a Pandoras & MMS.

    my question is basically: Do i need to buy a new MMS and make/buy a new battery, or can i somehow use the ones i already have?

    Old and outdated (and I personally would rather buy a pandora than hardmodding one, because a Pandora battery is about 5 US$, a new original battery is far more expensive).
    Also the OP already has a pandora battery and a magic memory stick, no use in creating another one.
    If the mms and the pandora battery still work you should be able to unbrick your PSP with them, just put your mms into your PSP, keep the left shoulder button pressed and insert the pandora battery. If all still works you should be taken to the mms menue.

    nope, the green light turns on for like 20 seconds and then turns off, but the screen doesnt do anything :(

    the battery&mms i have are the ones that were in there when it got bricked...

    also i should probably tell you HOW it got bricked:

    basically one day i took my PSP out of my pocket and it said "Flashing - 73%" and i freaked out and (like a dumbass) took out the battery... maybe that caused the MMS i have atm to get damaged?

    You do have a pandora battery and a magic memory stick? Sounds like you use a normal battery and a normal memory stick. You cannot use a pandora battery and a magic memory stick as normal ones, because they are especially made to get the PSP into vendor mode, also they don't act as normal memory stick and normal battery.

    You can use your same memory stick and battery but you will need a psp with customer firmware already on it to convert you battery to a pandora battery. If you like to try, search for OSPT battery tool. As for the memory stick, look for Rains UltraLite MMS maker to create the "Magic Memory stick".

    If you have a working PSP that already has custom firmware on it you don't need any tools for the pandora, you can convert the battery in recovery menue, just go to advanced->battery options->make jigkick battery.

    Please help me with my problem... I was doing an update on Hell Cats Recovery Flasher when my battery accidently slipped out of the damn container. Then when I wanted to boot the PSP again I see only the black screen and green light but no Sony Logo. Please give me a fix which does not include hardmodding or buying a Pandora Battery, I have a Magic Memory Stick Pro Duo though. Please reply with help fast!!!!!

    i had version 6.60 PRO C2 (CFW) and i was using the Hell Cats Recovery Flasher to downgrade to 5.00 m33 and i started the update but the battery fell out during the update and now its bricked. I cant get to the Sony LOGO, the XMB or the recovery menu. Does this mean I have to get a Pandora Battery?

    Again, which PSP version do you have? Not the firmware version on it.

    Ok, then you can recover it, but you need a pandora battery and a magic memory stick, if you can't access or don't have recovery menue, the non-permanent cfws don't have recovery menue.

    I'd buy one, if I were you. An original PSP battery is way more expensive than a cheap pandora battery. But you can softmod one, if you have another custom firmware PSP.
