    I've tried a bunch of different methods but nothing seems to work. After I plug in the Pandora Battery the screen always stays blank. If you need anymore info just ask.

    Do you have a magic memory stick?

    EDIT:Do you have a slim? Because I heard sometimes the screen does not show up

    Yes of course lol.
    I have both a 2 gig and a 128 mb. Both are real.
    I also forgot to mention that I have a PSP Slim 2001.

    I dont think you understood. I setup the memory stick for whichever method I'm trying. Then I put in the memory stick, put in the Pandora Battery, and the PSP turns on with a blank screen. But instead of going into a menu, the screen stays blank.

    I'm nnot really sure anymore, I've tried a bunch. I'm trying the second stickied one right now. Also, does it matter if ypu set up the memory stick using the PSP's USB mode?

    Update: I tried Legion's guide (the one in the sticky). I make the Memory Stick fine. Bt when I put in the Pandora battery, the screen doesn't even turn on. The green power light turns on and thats it. Not eben the Memory Stick light. And it has done the same thing for all the other methods.

    Make sure you have correctly formatted the card and partitioned it correctly, then properly install the "magic" files. Place the MMS first, then the battery. If this doesn't work, try inserting the MMS, holding the L button down, then inserting the battery while still holding.

    Download the official firmware off of Dark-AleX
    Load it up in the program
    Click Make MMS

    Insert created MMS on PSP
    Hold L
    Insert Pandora Battery
    Continue holding L until the screen pops up.

    I just modded my friend's phat psp today.

    I'll go ahead and say it's a Slim obviously.
    What color is it and when did you get it?
    It may be unhackable, yes.

    There's a good chance it's unhackable. If you're doing everything correctly, nothing works, and you bought it brand new a week ago, then yeah... there's a pretty good chance you're screwed.
