    from my wii time i remember you could dump the NAND memory via a homebrew tool and if you would just save that .bin file, your wii could be recovered always, even with a full brick [​IMG]
    i was wondering if there's any way to do the same thing with the psp?

    Yeah, there is a way, but some newer PSP can't be recovered even after a semi-brick, I think. [​IMG]

    But I forgot the program... Sorry!

    EDIT: I think you can also do it with a Pandora Battery.

    At least tell us what PSP you have and which firmware. Is it already hacked? Do you perhaps have a Pandora battery?

    on psp the can use Pandora
    you can make a nand back-up (that is ONLY for the psp that make it)

    with Pandora, a nand back-up really not needed
    as using Pandora reFlashes the PSP

    the nand back-up is good for the id keys the is different for EACH PSP

    Use Nandtool and make a full nand dump, and then a full IDStorage Key dump. That's basically what you're asking for.

    There's a nand backup tool on hellcat's i think?

    Also.. The option was there when I made an MMS and Pandora.

    Download that file linked to by xist, plug your PSP into your computer, copy the "nandTool_040NEO" folder (inside the PSP -> GAME folder of the zip file) into your PSP's own /PSP/GAME folder.
    Unplug your PSP, find Nandtool under Games, run it. Select "Dump from NAND" to make a full NAND dump, and "Other Tools -> Dump idstore keys" to make the IDStorage Keys dump.

    Here is a more complete tutorial, which also explains how to use Nandtool with a pandora battery (using a magic memstick), and how to restore these backups if you ever need to: http://pinoypsp.com/index.php?topic=188548.0;wap2

    If you do brick, it's easier just to boot up Hellcat's Recovery Flasher with your Pandora battery and MMS and reinstall CFW, rather than mess with NAND backups.

    Although if you somehow corrupt your keys you're totally screwed unless you use DCv8 and then you'd lose Magic Gate for good.

    Nand backups are less essential than they were but still handy, Key backups are just a nice unique safety measure.
