    I have a PHAT 1000
    I have a bought pandora battery
    My OFW version is 3.52

    I have tried grader v006 and v008 , RAINS IPL and the Newbie one but the battery refuses to run on any of them.
    The screen is blank and only the green light is on.

    Please help

    What sort of MS do you have? Magic Gate Support, Brand and Size?

    Also you could always update to 5.03 and use Chickhen to run Hellcats Recovery Flasher.

    Even though I have the pandora battery, I just updated a new PSP from 3.71 to 5.03 and then ran chicken & Hellcat Recovery Flasher. I followed the guide at pspslimhacks.com http://pspslimhacks.com/easy-chickhen-cust...ithout-pandora/.

    There's a download link for the 5.03 CFW (I think it was 5.0 M33-4) and then I did another upgrade to get M33-6. It was pretty easy for a first time PSP modder.

    Off topic, but are we allowed to post OFW on here? I'm guessing we could, so I could make a thread with them in for reference.

    eboots are freely distributed by Sony. So long as they're not tampered with then i'd say yes (so poploader sets are a no-no as these contain decrypted files from those firmwares)



    (Oh and Livin in a box....Frog-Gaming seems like a scam site and has been touted as such across various places -

    No phone number on their website nor an Address.

    Yes I know, but I've seen one report of someone receiving their copy of FIFA 10 perfectly fine, so...That's why I put it there. I saw it advertised on Google Mail too...And they use PayPal, so you can get your money back if something happens.
