    hey guys,
    i just got my psp yesterday and i wanted to mod the battery.
    first of all: the psp slim has firmware 1.5 on it O.o how could that be? is that possible?
    second: when i opened the battery (3.6 v, 1800 mAh), i found out that there's not the usual circuit board on it! there's only one tiny board on the top-side of the battery.
    i got the psp from ebay, and the seller said that she had sent it to a shop that put a cfw on the psp (for 50$ o.o).
    but there is not cfw on it anymore, just 1.5, although its a slim.
    i opened the battery and.. boom, no board, just a small grenn board next to the pins.

    can anybody please help?

    chris

    It is not possible for a Slim to have any firmware lower than 3.60. (Using Time Machine it can temporarily)

    Don't mod the battery or anything! Just update to 3.52M33-4 then to 3.80M33 (no need for 3.90 on a Phat, only adds Skype)

    That would be easier. If he had a Pandora's Battery. Re-read the first post. Even then he'd be out $10 (plus 2 weeks waiting for DealExtreme), while the way I posted is free.

    He doesnt need a Pandora battery, like I said he can make one using Open Source Pandora Battery Tool.

    I think your in the recovery menu of your psp look for the exit option and see if that works .could you maybe put a pic up or explain more maybe you might of bricked your console but try what i said first.

    nope, thats not it. it loads up the xmb, but its red and has no icons. i read on a forum somewhere that all i have to do is only starting it up again til i get a blue screen.
    any better ideas? : D

    Um...turn off the psp completely then turn it on holding r which will take you to the recovery menu then go to plugins and check if you have a plugin called cxmb if you do disable it and then exit plugins and then exit recovery and that should work that happened to me but thats because i had xcmb.
