    yes finally.

  2. f.torres says:

    but one question does it unbrick psp 3000 TA88v3

  3. Javier says:

    will this one day work on Psp 3000?
    does this mean we have finally found a way to
    unbrick newer version of PSP would be seeing
    some Unbricker Program for the psp 3000 in the near

  4. f.torres says:

    @Javier I think i can answer that question for you yes we will see a pandora battery for psp 3000 in the future maybe a month or two.

  5. Mr.Jx says:

    does not work in 3000 because in this model the pandora battery will not start, only thing is that the magic memory stick works in 2000

  6. naor says:

    gostaria de saber qual é o programa e onde posso conseguir
    tenho um psp 2000 como peso de papel e gostaria de saber se essa bateria e esse cartao vao reviver o falecido

    • Tikiko says:

      tinhas de ter muita experiência com soldar e isso assim,a nao ser ke comprasses um cartao de memória sem monolith para funcionar com o unbrick

      mas sim este truque funciona nessa psp 2000 e em todas as 2000 e 1000

  7. Fade says:

    I hope this works for 3000

  8. Shinny says:

    well actualy.. i think its a bit pointles these days cuz of the PRO and TN rulers… but hey its a great discovery… i never used that kind of stuff.. hope neever will…anyways im happy that someone is stll developing hacks for psp.. yay long live PSP =)

  9. Shinny says:

    btw hes russian and thats my neighbors… looks like russia is more interest in psp than the PSV and 3DS…

  10. yellow says:

    @shinny thats not the point here its not about hacking the psp meaning cfw way this means that its now possible to unbrick a psp that was useless as a brick so this not about pro hen or tn hen this is about hardware hack that can fix a psp this is even better than a cfw i am just hopping they find away for psp 3k now and well all will be good.

  11. Dallox says:

    Sad that it was made with software/hardware from Sony, Otherwise it would be really awesome.

  12. Menyo says:

    I just wondered why the video was updated in April 22..

  13. Llywelyn says:

    Sim esse metodo vai permitir reviver o seu psp.
    Portanto, o Wololo escreveu que você não pode baixar o software porqué é copyrightado pela SONY. Você pode, porém, digitar “ ta-88v3 jigkick”, você vai achar o soft rapidinho.
    O pb é que tem que dessoldar um componente do memory stick, usar um reprogramador, soldar o componente de volta… muito dificil 😉
    Meu conselho é esperar até eles decriptarem os .prx.enc e fazer um método 100% software !

    What about DATEL’s PSP 3000 pandora battery ? They were able to put a PSP-3000 into service mode…

    • RaFa says:

      The datel’s battery was fake…

    • wololo says:

      My understanding is that Datel managed to get into service mode, but were expecting the scene to come up with the Memory stick…which never happened since the blue lite tool was never sold on the market (Datel was apparently sued by Sony)

      • Llywelyn says:

        Well this Russian hack could apply to PSP-3000 if someone discovers how to put PSP-3000 into service mode…
        Datel has shown that it is possible: now up to the scene to find how !

  14. Yoti says:

    >>Yoti (who has provided several updates for PSARDumper in the past)

    >>jigkick installing firmware 5.02 on a 6.38 ta88v3
    Sorry, but it 085v2 as i remember. I don’t have an 088v3 when i made this video. But on 088v3 ALL SAME =)
    And THIS stick already unbricked/downgraded three 088v3 in past.

  15. Yoti says:

    May be I made new video with some proofs in a week, if I get 088v3 one.

  16. Ricardo says:

    et le PRO-C vira quand?!

  17. enchee says:

    It’s no doubt. It’s all working.

  18. TheKrack says:

    i want unbrick my ta-088v3 now!

  19. Bricked says:

    Me too…

  20. WilliamBMX says:

    AWWWYEE!!!My brick 3K PSP waiting for this!!!Finalmente valeu a pena esperar por um unbricker pro PSP 3000!!!Tomara que não demore mais!!!Congratulations for all!!!

  21. enchee says:

    As far as I know, first of all, it will need to find somewhere a fake memory stick with this mark on the back side MSX-M2GN AL406L1L. It’s from China. Legal cards are useless.

  22. Dallox says:

    I heard the files were leaked on a other forum..

  23. iSWORD says:

    Wait a sec! I gotta feeling… That tonight is gonna be a good night.. That tonight is gonna be a good night.. That tonight is gonna be a good good night.. WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!

  24. BlkHalo says:

    o.o Nice job…

  25. npt says:

    Wow, knew someone would leak an official 88v3 stick sometime, but still pretty interesting none the less. I will be even happier if we see someone from the scene get it to work without the leaked files, as, obviously using a copy of a leaked official sony MMS is not nearly as cool as if it was figured out without said sony files.

    Still, props to the devs that did this. I will give more props to the person who manages to release something that does the same but does not have the stolen sony mms dump files… : )

    Regards & Cheers,


  26. dddd says:

  29. akela says:

  31. chealsea says:

    im on the first list ..gonna order them if available

  32. ChuCiulla says:

    If/when this “jigstick with 5.02 ofw” becomes available to the general public, can someone post the store link where we can find it. I’m so excited about this. Thank you Yoti!!

  33. raztabob12 says:

    good news to bricked ta-088v3 users like me…

    thanks guys…

    are these available in “Repair Package” that is “already made” for sale?

    and any approximate how much would it cost?…

    coz my psp’s been dead for quite some time now…

    thanks once again…

    kudos to the geniuses behind it all… cheers!

  34. alecx says:

    It’s cool
    I now hacked PSP 2000 TA-088v3

  35. trololol says:

    It’s times like this that make me feel that no one actually attempted to hack this kind of motherboard and/or psp 3000 and just felt since its newer it can’t be hacked lol.

  36. kkk says:

  37. Jawwad says:
