    Default How to hard mod a Pandora Battery...

    Note: A very respectable member at www.psphacks.com/forums pointed out that if you short out the battery or cause it to overheat there is a risk of explosion, so If you must use this method please, be careful. I AM NOT responsible for any damage to batteries or persons when using this method, I suggest buying a Tool Battery.

    This section if for a PHAT battery
    Use something plastic (like a guitar pick, disposable picnic knife, ect...), to split the battery open. Do so by starting in the seams that run around the edge and work your way around untill you get it completely apart. Be extra carefull when you get close to the connections on top. If you feel the need to use something metal to take the battery apart do so at your own risk. I used a sharp, very pointy, steel pocket knife. Just dont cram it in to far or touch anything metal other that the pin you need to touch. (metal to metal shorts out circuits, and your playing with a live circuit board here) Refer to the pictures...



    Once you get the battery open find the little black square located near the bottom right. It should have writing on it such as TExx and S93056. This is where you will need to remove a small pin from one side of it. On the main board (the green part) of the battery itself will be writing near one end of the black square such as ICO4. The pin under the 4 is the pin you will need to remove. Refer to the pictures...



    As you can see from the pictures the pin on my battery is allready removed. Use anything you want to remove the pin from your battery. I used a sharp knife and gently cut the pin off. BUT REMMEMBER if you touch two of the pins at the same time, or slip and close the circuit between anything metal (ie. have the tool your using, such as a metal knife, touch two different parts at the same time) you could run a chance of ruining your battery.

    When you get the pin removed put your battery back together. Use a peice of clear tape around the edges to hold your battery together. Dont use to much tape or the battery will kinda not fit properly into your PSP anymore, you'll have to push it in a little more than you did before.

    Sounds like you did it right, so right when you insert the battery the light, lights up immediately with a black screen? ? If it does that, then you did it right.

    Now make the MMS.

    Rain's UltraLite MMS Maker for 5.00 M33-4
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/download.php?id=1623

    5.00 official update (extract and rename this to 500.PBP)
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/download.php?id=1568

    Once, you make the magic memory stick, insert the magic memory stick. Next Hold on to the L trigger. Finally insert the battery into the psp while holding on to the L trigger, wait 3 secs a menu should appear select 5.00M33-4

    Once you have CFW you can do almost anything, you can play UMD backups, PSX games, Emulators, plugins and much much more.
