    Hi, I just ordered a pandora battery and a 1 gb MMS from pandorabatteryco.com,and the payment was paid,but they had'nt emailed my dad yet. does anybody have any experiancee with this website? i searched around the internet,finding many threads in other forums saying that they got scammed or asking if they are legit. its been a week,and still no email. >.< also,I have for the serial number of my psp 2000 HU1. what does that mean?

    Yikes! That's like 10x the going price. In the future, even if you need something fast, you could have gotten this stuff from DX for way cheaper, and used EMS express. Are you really located in Japan or another country?

    They sell them on Amazon, that's where I got mine. It works fine too and I got it for $15. It's kinda hard to find elsewhere. Your best bet is making your own if needs be.

    Dealextreme + EMS is takes about a week based on my experience, even though EMS is like $15 it would still be cheaper than this.

    If I were you, I'd just return the PSP, and once you get the battery, buy another. Or get a 1000, it's a lot less trouble.

    Dude, are you not listening? Why are you going to the practically obvious Scam sites? DealExtreme has the best prices on Pandora's and its cheapest, plus fast shipping for only $15, that's essentially $30 for the Battery and shipping.

    First off, try to stay away from websites with the product name in the URL. Like, pandorasales? Sounds scammy.

    Order off DX or some other well known website. Huge list of other websites, here:

    So you bought one from pandorasales.com? That's the only seller I see on Amazon.

    Hopefully you do get that battery. [​IMG]

    Some PSP slim 2000 are not hackable. Try the ChickHEN r2 and Psident too try and find which motherboard you have got.
    See if full hackable or not.
