    Is the PSP Slim a TA-88v3 motherboard one?
    There's a way to check, look around.

    If it is, it can't be flashed.

    no it can be flashed I have flashed it now. I ended up injecting a different ipl into the magic memory stick that psp grader created. He got it used so he wouldnt end up with a TA-88v3. Thanks for your guys attempt to help

    Now my brothers psp is bricked adn after i flash it with either OFW or CFW. when i turn it on the screen is black and the green light stays on for about 5 seconds. should i restore the nand dump??

    EDIT: My brother was smart enough to buy the extended warrenty and the battery compartment isnt the greatest (the battery will fall out if the back isnt on perfectly) I'm thinking that claiming he was updating the firmware and the battery fell out seems like the easiest way out of this whole mess. Or should i attempt to physically restore the nand dump?

    If you have a battery, you might as well (re)install CFW and it should work?
    Can't make it any worse can it?

    Try this.

    Step 1: Format with MSPformat, and load TimeMachine IPL on it with "Rain's IPL & Memory Stick Tool 2.0". Be sure to also select "Create Folders". Find it here.
    Step 2: Copy Despertar del Cementario v8 onto memory stick under ms0://PSP/GAME. Find it here.
    Step 3: Put memory stick in your already hacked PSP, and run DDCv8, to install it to the memory card.
    Step 4: Put your now perfectly made Magic Memory Stick in your bricked PSP.
    Step 5: Put your Pandora battery into the PSP, be sure to hold down the L button.
    Step 6: DDCv8 should boot, reinstall CFW 5.00 M33-4. Reboot.
