    I have a original PSP-2001, with a fully pandora compitable motherboard.
    I made a pandora MMS on a 4GB memory stick pro duo with psp grader on win7, and i cutted the leg of the batterys controller chip.
    If i insert the battery it turns on, and i'm holding the L key while inserting battery.
    Only problem i get is that the backlight turns on but screen keeps being black, the MS indicator flashes very short and then it does nothing else than showing a black screen.
    Also tried a old 64MB memory stick but then it doesn't even turn on the backlight of the screen, neither a flashing MS indicator.
    Both memory sticks are compitable with psp and shows up as a magicgate one(it is a magicgate offical memory stick).

    If i boot up with normal battery and without MS it just turns on and backlight keeps off, no indicators flashing and it turns off after a minute.
    Before it stopped working i tried to uninstall cfw by removing it from cfw installer, then i rebooted the psp and sience then it's doing nothing :(

    Can somebody help me?

    If you had a permanent patch/hack installed you should have removed that before rebooting too, since it's now trying to run a hack on startup that doesn't exist.

    When making the MMS, format the stick first and make sure the trigger is set to L, it can be set to something different in the program (and try something else too, in case).

    If you're using a Pandora to power it up it doesn't matter what you've done wrt CFW in the past...the Pandora tells it to load from the inserted MS so which firmware hacks you've put in place get completely ignored.

    Don't use grader....use an MG supported stick and Rains Ultralite Magic Memory Stick maker. The Pandora you have is doing exactly what it's supposed to - powering up and just displaying nothing with the backlight on - it's looking for boot instructions from the MS but not getting any so it's the MS that's bad.

    If you're happy using old school Despertar Del Cementerio v8 then your current (tiny) MG stick should be fine.

    How did you brick it?

    Uninstalling old cfw and then reboot
    So this is exactly right:

    I stole the ms from my mothers photo camera, now trying with that one :P

    No it's not. You could have rewritten your flash0 with Romeo and Juliet typed out in Cockney rhyming slang but when a Pandora is inserted the PSP wouldn't know that you'd developed a fondness for the bard. It doesn't matter what you've done prior to the brick, what CFW you were on etc....the sole point of the Service Battery (Pandora) is to ignore the PSP's nand and run from MS.

    Just fire up DCv8 or Rain's Ultralite tool and go for broke...

    My post was about how it wouldn't boot which lead him to need the pandora in the first place.
