  13. pspboy says:

    Do I need to do anything to the .rar file(unbricker/downgrader)?

  14. simple says:

    Is bricking it on purpose and then using this to unbrick it and installing 3.71 on your
    slim, the only way to do it?
    Or can you just install the 3.71 without having to unbrick it.

  20. Marcus says:

    Use your nand memory back up to restore a bricked slim. If you dont have one search the net for a nand slim memory dump. its about 66mb.

  21. beegs says:

    yo…ok here are some answers for everyone…

    ok first off to install this on ur slim, u need a fat with custom firmware or 1.50 (but cfw is prefered)… to get a cfw fat psp u need to downgrade with the many ways found on, or even better…google

    THEN u can follow the simple instructions in the readme or use this guide to install psp slim cfw 3.71m33

    there are MANY MANY guides online that explain this… you just have to look a bit

    also.. for the error, the reason is that you have SONY’s firmware, so u will hav to wait for a 3.71 fat downgrader OR use someone elses psp

    hope that helps some…

  22. dclipe says:

    Pandora is the best hack out fo the psp both phat and slim…well thats my opinion…i’ve been messing around with my flash0 ever since i got the pandora.

  23. Nicholas says:

    Hmmm… Will this work for my psp fw 3.72? I don’t wanna brick my psp.

    i’ve unbricked my psp successfully with this method, thanks alot
    but when i tried to recover my p-battery by running p-battery creator on my just-unbricked psp
    which is now already cfw 3.71 m33-2, it didnt work
    is it supposed to be able to run homebrew after all the pandora work and 1.50 add on?
    i could only run nester j, but not snes9xtyl, daedalus, and mame
    please guys, i appreciate for your helps
