    I recommend you do it yourself. I only say this b/c it really limits the chance of you getting scammed on your new PSP slim. What if someone offers to help you, takes the "fee" you were willing to pay and KEEPS your PSP slim, only to disappear w/ everything? Dark_AleX has made it so easy to modify a PSP now, it's incredible. If you have a (PSP fat) battery, you can convert it to allow you to install custom firmware on your Slim, and then you'll be able to play downloaded games. If you don't have another battery, buy one and convert it. Additionally, if you do it yourself, you won't have to get the PSP and then be without it again. The anticipation of waiting for it to begin with is enough, but sending it right back off once you get it would be awful, you know? I'm going throught the same thing right now, but I've been waiting almost 2 weeks. :/ Ceramic White PSP Slim on the way. :)

    There is a 100% chance you will be able to unbrick it if you did in fact brick it while trying to install custom firmware.

    I just looked at that link... you sure you want a black one? :/ You'll be able to see fingerprints on it and everything... Up to you, but you could get a different colour for roughly the same price. I got a white one for 235.00 shipped.

    Well, if you can't get your hands on a Fat custom firmware (or 1.50) PSP then you can modify the battery without it.

    This involves opening up the Fat battery and de-soldering one of the pins to a certain chip, there's a guide on how to do it here on afterdawn, complete with pictures. Sony have now started changing the "hardware" of the battery so it won't work, so you might have to find a used battery.

    If you can however find a friend (Or at least someone you trust) with a 1.50/custom firmware Fat PSP, then they can run a program on their PSP that will "software mod" the battery to do the same job as if you'd de-soldered that pin, and this was it's easier, and can be changed back to normal more easily.

    In answer to needing another memory card: All you need is a card that is 128MB or higher, after you've used it as a Pandora memory stick you can just format it and use it as normal.
