    So I'm going for a third time.
    I opened the battery and the battery still works.
    So far so good.

    Now how the heck do I remove the #5 pin without destroying the battery? With what? and how?

    P.S. My battery has the small board in the front, not the large one on top.

    Thanks alot, I really don't want to fail again, this is starting to get depressing and quite expensive

    If your trying to make a Pandora battery, just stop what your doing. Datel sells a tool battery which puts your psp into service mode, aka Pandora.

    Spend the $25, and save your other battery. You'll need that one for later.

    Seeing as how you keep ruining your batteries by hard moding, this is a bit cheaper, and its already done for you.

    I have a tool battery and works perfectly. They have for both PSP versions; Slim and Fat.

    So my only options is hardmodding one..

    Get a tool battery, find a friend who has a newer (Older than 2 months though) official battery that you can hardmod (If they'll let you), or find someone willing to softmod your battery for free (Depends where you live).

    -The batteries I got are officials battery, its they one they give with the psp who had 1.50 firmware when bought.
    So that's kind of older than 2 months.

    -I'd love to get a tool battery but I can't order online, I don't have a credit card

    -There is no one I know that could softmod it

    So my only option is to hardmod

    Well then that's what, 2 years old? I meant a newer battery (Like 5 months etc)

    No-one that could order it for you?

    I meant find someone here on afterdawn willing to do it :)

    In that ce, try a craft knive, that should be fine to cut carefully.

    If you don't have CFW or 1.50 to make it then you need to hardmod.

    You see Shokz, I could take the tip of a nail to lift/remove the pin.
    Its so easy its not even funny, but I'm afraid I'll short the battery while doing so..

    buy it on ebay. and how come you dont have credit card? if not go to some store and ask if they can help you put 3.71.m33, of course not bestbuy, circuitcity, just some game store own by individual. or see if any ppl live near you that can help you. if not i guess you apply a credit card.

    As long as you have a fairly steady hand you should be fine.
