    Hey guys, I've been having some problems with my PSP lately, and I've finally given up trying to figure out what is wrong with my PSP. Here's my problem:
    I'm running 5.50 Gen B-Full for awhile now. Lately, I've been having some problems with it. At first, when I turn on my PSP, it hangs on the black screen while the power is running. Now, I know what you're thinking, but it's not bricked. What I do is that I have to let my PSP die, plug in my power adaptor, immediately turn on my PSP and hold R to access recovery mode. Once, I get to the recovery mode, I exit and it takes me to the XMB. Now, when I'm at the XMB and I turn off my PSP and try to turn it back on, it'll put me back at the black screen. And for some reason, I try to access recovery mode, but I cannot. I wait for like a week to access recovery mode again. I tried running Hellcat's Recovery Flasher but it takes me back to the XMB saying that the Game could not be started with an error. I tried upgrading to 5.50 Gen D-3, but when I launched that, it hangs in the dreaded black screen and nothing happens.

    So, as you can see, I'm kinda on a rough spot here and not entirely sure what's wrong. Do I have to run Gen C before I go to Gen D? Any help would be appreciated and I thank you all for assistance. >

    Get a Pandora and a MMS.

    Is there another option besides Pandora or MMS?
    If Pandora is the only option, then the option when you press select and and it has "Make Pandora Battery"
    Can I put it back to a regular battery? Or do I have to have another battery?

    If you can get to the Recovery Menu you can use Hellcat's Recovery Flasher from there rather than the XMB Game Menu without need for a Pandora.

    I think it was the "Run EBOOT at ", which should be the default HRF directory.
