    I just received a Pandory Battery and I want to test it on my PSP Slim 5.00 M33-6 to see if it really works. How can I do that without messing up?

    Look on Google for Open Source Pandora Battery Tool (OSPBT) and use that to check what battery you have. Please, DO NOT use any of the other options that this presents to you.

    As soon as you put the pandora battery in, you'll get a black screen but the light is on. If you want to use it, you should then take it out, put the magic memory stick in, put the battery in and wait. After a few seconds, you'll see an options screen for doing stuff. Google for psp magic memory stick.

    If I was you look to do the chickHen r2 thing first.

    Look for a Programme called, Psident to see what motherboard you got before using the pandora battery.

    Because of some motherboard on the psp slim. Not hackable.

    No need because: Motherboards that are not hackable will not allow the pandora battery to turn on the PSP at all.
    Meaning it could in no way damage the PSP it is just that it does not work.
    In other words all PSP`s that accept pandora battery are fully hackable.

    See proof here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuJ8A9XAM4A
    On aprox 0:40 he inserts the pandora into a unhackable slim.

    You only want to be sure of the version of your motherboard if: You flash CFW to it via HEN.

    This does however mean if you have a unhackable motherboard you will never know or you pandora works.
    To test the pandora it should light the backlight of the PSP and power on the power button when you insert the battery.
    (As shown in the movie)
    If that is not enough proof to you, you will have to make a Magic Memmory Stick also.
    This to to acutally see the DC8 boot so you know the set it is 100% ok.

    Keep in mind that you can use HEN only if the original firmware (OFW) is 5.03 or lower.

    OK, I tried it. I put the Pandora Battery into my PSP Slim and it booted, then nothing (as you wrote). Then I created a Magic Memory Stick, put it in, then the Pandora and again the PSP boots, but nothing more. So I googled a bit more and found out that I have to hold the L button on boot to make the menu appear. So I did that and was presented with a menu giving me some options. One allowing to install CFW 3.71 M33. So it seems to work fine. Thank you all [​IMG]

    Oh crapz forgot to note so, that is indeed correct. [​IMG]
    You can change the key to boot the menu in most MMS programs.

    Glad you got it all working!! Always good to know your life jacket works. [​IMG]
