    Bought another psp (new) at the store today and suprised to see it came with 3.51 as my last one came with 2.5 ( or somthing close, i forgot) Sacrificed an old battery to make the pandora, didnt purposely brick the $ony 3.51, just pandora'd that beast right over top the working official firmware and success :) went to 1.50 the straight to m33. I have seen recent posts numerous times of people still asking about if the pandora will work on 3.51 and up FW's so thats another reason i wrote this. Thanks to everyone involved in the pandora prokect and to psp-hacks.com.

    Psp = 82 board, m33 3.52-2, alcohol, nicotine, and strippers, er....huh?

    used it on about 7 psp's already and 3 of em were bricked, worked everytime.
    only one problem i had was one of the bricked psp's wont read the disc at all, just stays on xmb with the loading icon on the bottom of the screen.
    anyone know how to fix this problem? or is the lens buggered? coz thats what i just assumed

    It's interesting to hear that someone else besides me is having that problem... I thought that the lens might need to be cleaned, and I still have yet to try it... Not to be pessimistic about the situation, but I have a feeling that my PSP has a corrupt idstorage, which, according to the Pandora readme.txt, cannot be fixed by any known method.

    I thought that when I restored the NAND from a dump (nand-dump.bin) of a 100% working PSP would replace any bad files within idstorage, but I guess not...

    Let me know if you get it to work, and what you did.

    I use pandora on two psp official 3.51 fw and both are now 1.5. Worked like a charm. It's pretty simple just read instructions carefully. Yes you can turn your battery back to normal but just buy another one this way you will never have to do install the files again. It's a lenghty process. Once everything is done you just install the "magic memory stick" and the jigkick battery" to any psp, bricked or not it doesn't matter, and it will downgrade it to 1.5 in less than a minute. Make sure you put a normal battery back and your good to go.

    P.S. You need to have a psp that can run homebrew to be able to make the battery and memory stick files. Once files are made you put the battery and memory stick in the psp that needs to be downgraded or unbricked.
