    heys guys, i finally decided to get a PSP slim and use my old one to downgrade it then upgrade using homebrew, but then things kinda got crazy after that. i was following an youtube pandora tutorial and i got stuck at one part, i think it was the part where you are in the cmd screen and your trying to write the pandora stuff on your card (msinst/msinst.exe e msinst/msipl/bin etc etc.) but i couldnt get it to work so i stopped for the night and in the morning my PSP was...I think its bricked. now i no that you use pandora to unbrick psp's but i cant even get to recovery mode. i think i was successful in making the pandoras battery but not the memory stick. when i turn my PSP on its just all black. soooooo can anybody lend me some help??h

    try getting another battery.it might act like this because you made a pandora battery but not a magic memory stick.you must have magic ms to get your battery working.or, to check if you're bricked or need another battery, take your battery out, plug in ac adapter and turn your psp on like that.if it comes up normally then you just need another battery.if it doesn't turn on then you're dead.unless you get your hands on another working pandora and magic ms...

    here's what i'd do.

    *buy a normal battery(don't get from ebay)

    *make a magic ms out of your psp.

    *try to use the battery(not working one) but with your magic ms in with it.

    it should come up with the pandora menu.
    if not, get another battery and convert that into a pandora.
    then just use the other battery that works fine as a main.

    do you understand?i'm not sure if it makes sense, so please ask if you don't know what i mean.

    take out your battery and hook up your charger to the psp. then turn your psp on.it should turn on regularly, after that just go start then go to run, type in command, hook up your psp into usb mode. anyways if your that far u should no where to pick back up if ur still lost i can help u still.

    wtf universal bricker? no lol, universal unbricker v3.i already had a magic ms for a pandora, but i wanted the unbricker v3 so i used that logically format thing(where you need the cmd and all that stuff) and just followed the guide by larry.if you want universal unbricker v3 using the same battery then go to my signature.
