    Ive noticed alot of modchip sites have started offering an unbricking service for any version of PSP that has been fully bricked.

    They promise that they will not open the PSP case and no solder is involved (so your warranty stays intact).

    How is this possible?


    Ive recently sent in a fully bricked PSP so Ill see how it goes by Thursday. Oh and they wouldnt tell me how they do it, none of them did...

    Well its on a few different modchip sites now.

    Ive bought from them in the past (Wii modchip) which was sent out fine. So I dont think its a scam... I'll tell you on Thursday lol

    I was thinking that maybe they had some sort of device that can access flash0 drives. Sony must have them because they can fix a bricked PSP.

    Anyone have any info on how Sony does it?

    He's talking about the battery sony made that they use in conjunction with a memory stick to recover bricked PSPs. It somehow works with the memory card to grant flash0 access.

    And they aren't bragging about it (so others are inspired and take that path...)

    If they had that battery they'd be boasting that they have a magical battery or something so they could slip under the legal radar and still make themselves look pro.

    Well I'm pretty confident in the site, ive spoken to the guy and he assured me about it (gives full address/phone number/ mobile number).

    Ive bought a Wii modchip from the site a few weeks ago & modded the Wii fine.

    Heres the advert if anyone wants to look at it:
    http://www.modchipfitters.com/index....roducts_id=393

    Site isn't anything special but they're one of the official Wiikey modchip resellers...

    Perhaps they do open up the case...? Is there any way to tell if a PSP has been opened up anyway?
