    How do you do it exactly? I've been googling it and some are either explained weirdly, or just to vague...

    either buy or make the pandora yourself, and then make the magic memory stick. Read my sticky.

    i read the sticky, but i couldn't find if there was a way to temp mod the battery using tight tape on the points and wire. i saw that someone mentioned tape, but that was the closest I saw.

    use anime_junkies method, in which you can scratch off the circuit, and when you have finished, redraw the circuit with a pencil

    will do....thought that would be slightly risky and that drawing that circuit back might not work. Probably will just end up modding a battery permanently. buying a new extended life from eb or wally world.

    I'm the one who advocated the tape method. Use ediblebird's guide, the solder method (third method in the guide). Instead of soldering the wire down to the points, tape the wire to the points. Make sure that you also tape other parts of the wire that may touch something that will cause a problem.

    Here's two pictures I took of what I did:

    gracias....sad that my batter looked nothing like those and is unmoddable...made in china, but i guess it may be a newer battery....battery was heating up ridiculous though before i opened it, so i'm just going to buy a new batter anyway. have a friend that has a magickey and pandora, i'll just have him set it up for now. kudos.

    If it doesn't look like either of the pictures, most likely it is a fake.

    How would I downgrade from 3.40 to 1.50? Do I really need Lumines? Or just Pandora's Battery and the Magic Memory stick?

    You don't need Lumines if you are using a Pandora's Battery and MMS.

    Pandora will work regardless of firmware version.
    Lumines an option if you do not want to use Pandora, and only for firmware 3.5 and below, if I remember correctly. So if you are using Pandora, no Lumines is required.
