    Go to the recovery menu, there is an option to fake the region.

    the PSP IS region locked for video UMDs, the fake region i think was for other things not for video UMDs

    Dump the UMD, to the memory stick, and load it via cfw?

    Use pandora and creade a new ID storage and select to use a European region id.
    After that you can play all the region 2 UMDs you want.
    You can use pandora to revert your PSP to American id or Japan ID...

    Find online for Pandora psp unbrick. When you have done the pandora battery and the mms, in the pamdora special recovery menĂ¹, you can build a new id storage. After varius prompot you can chose your psp region, select europe and you can play EU video umd.
