Re: Pandora Battery

Wow, for a PS2 guru you are so wrong. You should really do some research before posting such an uninformed post.

A Pandora Battery is easy enough to make and "Yes they do work". There are plenty of videos on Youtube to help you out.

You only need one battery and one memory stick 256mb-1gb, and a PSP running 1.5 FW. You can downgrade yours to create the battery and then upgrade to 3.80 m33-5 the latest custom firmware.

You can change your battery back into a regular PSP battery when your done. plese note there are 3 parts to this tutoial and I reccomend watching all three first then watch it while you perform your mods.

Good luck!

Re: Pandora Battery

Pandoras battery is possibly a scam.  I do not know for sure.  Be skeptical about it until you get confirmation that it really works.It is one of those sounds to good to be true things. I have not had to unvbrick a PSP yet, and I am a Playstation Repair specialist.  From what I know about unbricking a PSP , the Bios Eprom chip has to be reflashed with a Flash programming tool. Even then the Technician has to solder in wires that will communicate between the programmer and the Bios Chip.  On top of that the technician has to have a copy of the right Bios Flash data.  Pandora Battery professes it uses the battery to reflash or program the PSP.  Maybe so, I have not investigated it.  My point is, its almost too good to be true

Bricked PSP

Pandora Battery or Pandora Magic Stick, is psp utility for universal psp unbricker-downgrader- and updater.. the latest version of its utility is DC7..

To create pandora battery you need a psp with custom firmware ready or you can makes its with your PC. The software is open source by psp homebrew development.. that mean its free of charge...

You can't use other battery except psp battery, because psp battery has internal decoding to boot your psp into recovery menu... and has 3 pin battery for it.

If you would like to create your pandora it self, you can find most of our tutorials (all about psp homebrews) at our blog at

Hopefully this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information, and also Show your Appreciation, to help other USER.

Psp wont turn on

If you are somebody another person had done the mistake while updating your PSP. For eg: 1) Removed the battery. 2) Unplugged the charger of your PSP. 3) Removed the UMD. then it is possible that your PSP is bricked it means it is useless untill you replace the motherboard with a new one.
