    Tech has he bricked his psp?

    hi guys, mate of mine has just knackered his sons psp, he tryed to upgrade the software, but now it intermittent turns on, once on it works fine, when he turns it off, he cannot get it back on, we have tryed another battery, but still same, do i need the pandora battery to get it working or is that a con.

    any ideas guys, as he's got to tell his kid that it is knackerd.

    if it already had custom fw on it, you can hold the right shoulder button as you switch on to bring up a debug menu.

    Dunno if it'll help, but its something to check.

    SOUNDS LIKE IT ........

    ALSO

    NO THE PANDORA BATTERY IS NOT A CON, AND UNLESS YOU HAVE HAD THE FIRMWARE UPDATED PREV, YOU WILL NEED TO USE THE PANDORA BATTERY TO RECOVER THE PSP & FIX & UPDATE.

    its just a type of batt ( i think its an old psp batt that is updated in some way to enable the modding of the psp). You can buy them as pandora batts or google info in how to modd your own maybe.

    could try the sony consoles section if you hadnt already, see if there is any advice there

    You just need a friend with a old PSP that is already homebrew enabled to make one, and you can change it back easily or just use the pandora battery every day use.
