I was updating my psp 5.03 chickhen but it won't work so i cancel it, now my psp won't turn on only green light on the side

You just 'bricked' you PSP.

What model is your PSP? Is it the 1000, 2000, or 3000?

Never, ever, turn off your PSP when attempting to do an upgrade.

Best thing you can do is get ahold of what's called a Pandora Battery and then attempt to 'downgrade' your PSP before you attempt to upgrade. The battery of the PSP has special circuitry designed to boot the PSP and loading from the internal ROM or from the disk drive. A Pandora Battery is the same battery, but has been physically modified so that it can boot from memory stick. You will have to download a special utility that will 'write' specific boot programs to a Sony Memory Stick. This has to be done on a computer. Once that is done, you put the Memory Stick into the PSP, install the Pandora Battery, and then turn on the unit. (You cannot have the external powersupply plugged in, the battery needs to be fully charged.) The PSP will boot off the Memory Stick. You will then have the choice to 'downgrade' to a previous ROM Version. This will take some time, so wait for it to fully load. Once it is complete, remove the Memory Stick and put in a normal battery, or reconfigure the Pandora Battery back to its original configuration, and the PSP should boot normally.

If you are not comfortable in doing this, you will have to do a search on Google for places that can do this procedure. Some places charge up to $80-$100 to do this.

Hope this helps.

How to modify a 1000 series, 3.52 version psp?

You may want to learn the functions before attempting to modify it.

You need a pandora battery to modify it and a special memory card with the software you want to put on it. The pandora battery forces the PSP to boot from the memory card.

If the process if done wrong, the PSP's system software can become irreversibly corrupted so be careful.

Re: Pandora Battery

The Pandora Battery is what allows you to put your PSP into service mode. In this mode you can use a specially formatted memory stick a.k.a. - magic memory stick in order to upgrade or downgrade your firmware.

If you buy a magic memory stick and are done using the data on it to upgrade/downgrade you can format it and put other files onto it when done.

We offer PSP firmware repair starting at $49.99. We accept Paypal, check, money order, and wire transfer, Please contact me or visit our website if you are interested.
