SONY PSP Pandora Battery & Magic Memory Stick Hacks!

Pandora’s battery is a special service battery along with the “magic memorystick”
that can downgrade and unbrickany psp (even 3.52) . You can now bring yourdead (bricked) PSP back to life or downgrade any firmware psp , yes ANY FIRMWARE – 100 %. This amazing breakthrough is all thanks to the Noobz! team which has some of the best PSP hackers .

So here’s how to make your normal battery and memorystick into a Pandora battery and magic memorystick . The tutorial looka kinda complicated. (I tried my best to simplify it) but hang in there it aint as hard as you think it is. Please follow the instructions carefully. NOTE: Vista users try using XP ,vista seems to give loads of trouble.

NOTE TO NEWBIES: you have to make your normal battery into a pandora’s battery via software and stuff not by manually short circuiting it or something REQUIREMENTS :

1) A spare PSP battery (recommended) , any make will do.
2) A spare memorystick PRO DUO (it has to be PRO DUO) 
3) A PSP with Custom firmware ( OE or M33)or a 1.5 PSP. Ask you 
friends if you don’t have oen ,or search for one.


1) Take out the 1.5 or Custom firmware PSP ( OE or M33) and put in the sparememorystick (it has to be pro duo) and spare battery that you wanna modify.

2) Now you gotta format the memory stick. Scroll to SETTINGS SYSTEM SETTINGS FORMAT MEMORY STICK

3) OK now download this pack from her.and EXTRACT it with WinRAR . Don’t have Winrar Download it from here

4) Now extract the PANDORA folder from the downloaded pack to the desktop .Inside the Pandora folder you will find two other folders “msinst” and “mspformat”

5) Connect you PSP to the PC via USB cable .

6) Now in you computer go to START RUN and type in CMD and click on OK .A black box will popout .

7) Here’s kinda the confusing part . your computer might show C:\ orC:\Documents and Setting\Username> … Now I told you to you toextract the folders to the Desktop . So copy the location of themsformat picture here ,paste it followed by the drive letter of your PSP(eg my psp drive removabledisk (I:) the letter is I ) Now if your PC shows C:/ in your CMD copy the address barand paste it in followed by the letter of your psp drive.C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\PANDORA\mspformat\mspformat.exe IIF you PC shows C:\Documents and Setting\Username copy the address bar and pasteit in followed by the letter of yourpsp drive C:\Documents and Setting\Username\Desktop\PANDORA\mspformat\mspformat.exe IKeep trying till you get this prompt (like mine) : C:\Documents and Setting\Username\Desktop\PANDORA\mspformat\mspformat.exe I You are about to format the drive I All Data will be lost .Do you want to continue? [Y] Then you type in y and you willsee Drive successfully formatted, and partition moved. After that you can close the CMD box

9) Disconnect your psp from the PC and remove the memory card and turn of the PSP ,then place the MS (MS=memory stick) back in and turn the PSP on.Then reconnect you PSP to the Pc . NOTE: You have to do this …

10) Now download this pack from here http://pspcustomfirmware.com/downloads/download.php?file=347pandora.zip ,extract it with WinRar and copy the PSP folder and the UPDATE.PBP to the ROOT of thePSP memory stick . If you you have a 1.5 PSP no problem , If you have Custom Firmwaremake sure you turn on the 1.5 kernel mode ( to know how see here)

11) Disconnect your PSP . Scroll to GAME and click on “Pandora’s Battery Firm. Installer” it will take a few moments . After its done remove the MS from the PSP turn it off then place it back in and turn the PSP back on again, you HAVE to do this.

12) Connect your PSP to the PC . A Few files and folders will be formed in your ROOT ,now copy the msipl.bin from the root to the “msinst Folder” which is inside yourextracted Pandora folder . It should look like this

13) Here we go again START RUN type in CMD . That black box will open again .Now copy the address of the msinst.exe followed by the PSP drive letter followedby the address of the msipl.bin Now if your PC shows C:/ in your CMD it shouldbe something like this (with reference to PSP’s drive as I) C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\PANDORA\msinst\msinst.exe I Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\PANDORA\msinst\msipl.binIF you PC shows C:\Documents and Setting\Username hen it will looksomething like this : C:\Documents and Settings\username>Desktop\PANDORA\msinst\msinst.exe I Desktop\PANDORA\msinst\msipl.bin If you did it right you will get aprompt like (this promp will differ from PC to PC) : PSP MS IPL Installer Load IPL code msipl.bin 241664 bytes(59 block) readed Target DRIVE
is 1 Check partation Sector boot status 0×80 start head 0×0B start sec/cyl 0×0018 partation type 0×06 last head 0×7F last sec/cyl 0xCFE0 abs sector 0×00000177 ttl sector 0×0003CF689 signature 0xAA55 Check BPB Sector signature AA55 Check free reserved sector:OK Write ABS Sector 0×10 to 0×1E7

13) Are You Sure? [Y] Type in Y and you will getWrite MS BOOT CODE Congrats you now have a Magic Memory stick Now Disconnect your psp from the PC and remove the memory card and turn of the PSP , then place the MS back in and turn the PSP on . NOTE : if you get PSP MS IPL Installer Load IPL code msipl.bin Can’t open msipl.bin The location (address) of the msipl.bin is WRONG (i got this like 100 times until I figured it out just keep trying …) NOW MAKING THE PANDORA UNBRICKING BATTERY

14) After you have the magic MS leave it in the PSP then ,Turn on your psp and go to Pandora’s battery Creator ,make sure you have the spare battery in it . I Recommendbacking up so you can make the pandora battery into a normalone press “triangle ” first it will back up then go to “Pandora’s battery Creator” again and press X …You normal spare battery is now a … PANDORA UNBRICKING BATTERY … WOO HOO… You did it.

NOTE: when the Pandora’s battery Creator loads and if you get “ERROR at address 0×27” or a similar error you are screwed ,you cant turn that battery into a Pandora battery but you can use it as a normal battery. Use another battery and try again.
