Download this Pandora Deluxe 1.2
And this 4.01 official firmware
Open the Pandora Deluxe 1.2 and install.
Unrar the 4.01 official firmware and place the EBOOT.PBP in a folder on your desktop named 4.01.

Connect your PSP and enable USB. Start the Pandora Deluxe 1.2 program, while it is starting it will ask you if a certain drive letter is your PSP, make sure it is correct and click ok.

Click on the "Load 4.01 firmware" button and it will ask for the location of it. Find the 4.01 folder on your desktop, double click it and it will show EBOOT.PBP, select it and clickk OK. Then check the install box next to it. In the colum to the right select "Despertar Cementerio v7 (4.01m33-2)". Now just below that in the center is a drop down box with DCv7 next to it, drop the box down and select LEFT. In the box right below it check Format + Prepare Memory Stick, If you need to backup your memory stick select it. Make sure that the PSP Drive letter is correct and when you are ready to start press START.

When the operation is complete, disable the USB, disconnect the PSP and turn off. Remove the battery. Hold down the LEFT Trigger while inserting the PANDORA battery and continue to hold until the menu comes up.

Select NAND operations, then IDStorage tools. In that follow the prompts on the screen. Select your region, then turn on wifi switch and pres x to Get Real Mac and continue on till finished.

Hi psp works all ok only when loading game in just spins doesnt play.


If you have a PSP 1000 i dont know if you can do this but if you have a 2000 or 3000 try doing this:
1.)Open your UMD drive and try moving the lazer head as close as possible to the motor:maxim615.jpgIf this doesnt help then try reseting your umd drive this is dont by doing this(I'm not the autor of the video and i do not own it)

Evey time i but in a umd it comes on and then says disk can not be read


It could be many things is the can be a bad lazer, disc rotating motor is stuck, or bad motherboard in a worst case scenario. You can check if your lazer and your disc rotating motor is working if you open your umd slot with the psp on and with a small toothpick there is a black tab that sticks up, this tells the PSP that there is a UMD in the drive If you press this down, you should see the disc motor spin and the laser light up red. If they are in working order then it could be something wrong with some of the other hardware in the psp itself. (Caution: Do not stare directly at lazer) If one of the motor (Lazer or Disk rotating motor) are twitching or trying to move there could be some dust in the gear preventing it from turning you can try getting a needle and try to move the gear manually. If this does not work your most likely going to need to send it in for repair. Hope this helps please rate thanks!

My psp dosen't work well


have you modded the psp in anyway? are you trying to use homebrew apps? if you are trying to use a umd and you have modified anything other than stock then you need to clock your psp back to the factory level because the voltage is dropping too low from the umd reader activating and the strain the cpu is putting on the battery you could also try resetting everything to factory defaults afterall this is what the games are designed for

My games and movies don't work


hello jacob..

there might be a problem with your UMD optical reader on your PSP. have u tried all the disks??? none of them work? Try updating to the latest firmware version. If everything fails, then i believe there is something wrong with your disk reader (hardware related). Have u tried playing any media from the duo flash cards??? if the problem is with the UMD reader, then u will have to give it to SONY for repairs. let me know...

have you tried various disks? certan disks may either be scratched or dusty so you coul take a can of compressed air and ust out both some umd's and the umd tray of the psp. also, if you're usuing a custom firmware, you may find it will work once you revert to an official firmware

Psp-lazer ain't reading the games


This link should help.

  • Make sure the UMD is properly inserted with the label facing the back of the PSP system. Try removing the UMD and reinserting it.
  • Try playing the UMD on a different PSP system. If the UMD plays, the original PSP system may be the problem. If the UMD does not play, the problem may be isolated to the UMD itself.
  • Try playing a different UMD on the PSP system. If another UMD plays, the original UMD may be the problem. If none of the UMD's play, the problem may be isolated to the PSP system.
  • Make sure the exposed UMD surface and plastic casing is not damaged[2]. Do not use if plastic casing is cracked, collapsed, or if foreign materials have entered inside the UMD enclosure.
