    ok i have the pandora set in my PSP, it gave me a menu
    press x to downgrade using ms0:/ UPDATE.PBP.
    press 0 to backup nand to ms0:/ nand-dump.bin.
    press[](square) to restore nand from ms0:/ nand-dump.bin.

    I had a 3.52 firmware, but found it couldnt use homebrew so i got a pandora batt set, i just want to play homebrew (ISO/CSO files) what button do I press? I'm guessing x, right?

    yes, press x. it will downgrade to 1.50. but you aren't done yet. you'll have to upgrade to custom firmware because staying at 1.50 is very restrictive to most games. upgrading to custom firmware will make it easier on you.

    follow this guide, made by larrylje, and you'll upgrade successfully

    before you update, you will need to patch the system. in the provided link to the 3.52 m33 firmware, there is a 1.50only folder. copy the contents to your ms0:\psp\game. then in the psp menu, go to games/memory stick and run the kxploit permanent patch.

    yes, you can still downgrade back to 1.50. there is a built in recovery menu. you'll need the recovery folder before going back to 1.50.

    Pressing "O" will backup your nand e.g.flash 0 which is used to keep all of the psp operating files, if you try and flash something and it doesn't work out ,your psp wont boot. So pop in pandora and press "#" and it will put your psp operating files back to where they should be. Hope that kinda helps thing out

    Do that then you're bricked and not even Pandora can help you.
    Firstly, backup your nand file from YOUR PSP.
    Once done, then your PSP should be unbrickable :p

    BTW, the use of nand is backing up everything on your PSP(flash). If you bricked using the flash1 corruption(check out my signature on how to place themes on 3.71M33 safely) then restoring the nand will recover your PSP. So, that's the best way to go :)

    No. If you brick due to flash1 corruption, then Pandora nor Recovery mode will work. If I were you, I'd backup the nand with my Pandora while my PSP works.
