    Basically I've just a found a bricked PSP linky. And by all accounts it looks like a decent deal. And I'm aware it lacks a power an AC adapter but I've actually got one of my own so that's not a problem. What concerns me is the fact its bricked, I was thinking I could revive it with a pandora battery but in teh Q&A it says:

    I don't know that much about PSP hardware so clarity would be fantastic. According to some google searching I get the impression that I can revive it as long I remake the memory stick.

    Thanks in advance

    pandora batteries + a MMS should be able to unnbrick any psp1000 (and certain psp2000's)

    i believe thats what i used last year to flash my friends psp (though afterwards i upgraded the firmware right away to the latest m33 of that time, but you can either choose GEN or m33)

    If it's FULLY bricked it's history. The statement "i have also tried using a pandora battery and magic memory stick but do not really know how to use them to get the flash0 back." Also worries me because a simple reflash should have restored the PSP.

    Either the guy is really out of the loop re: PSP stuff or that PSP is truly dead. After all how hard is it to use Google/ask on a forum/look on youtube these days?

    Pandora is the Universal unbricker. It will reflash ALL your flashes with the MMS you use.

    Except of course the permanent bricks DAX warned about in earlier firmwares, or hardware bricks.

    For hardware bricks, you should just send it to Sony to fix it anyways. But it is a Universal Unbricker for flash related problems.

    3.71M33 and 3.71 M33-2 had permanent Brick bugs in flash writing which DAX himself relayed as unfixable on his own, now sadly defunct, forums.
