    Lots of users downgrade their PSP to version 1.5 in order to upgrade to
    higher version such 3.51,etc.,because with a refresh PSP with a version
    3.03 or above,you can run a lot more games and software applications
    without restriction on it. Do you know that your can downgrade your PSP
    system to version 1.5 all by yourself by turning your PSP battery into a
    pandora’s battery? All you need are an original PSP battery (with more
    than 50% charge) and a Memory Stick Pro Duo with 1GB memory or above.
    I. GET READY[/B] (REFORMAT PSP MEMORY STICK)
    BEFORE YOU GET STARTED WITH THE DOWNGRADE, YOU NEED TO REFORMAT YOUR
    PSP MEMORY STICK. IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO REFORMAT IT, YOU CAN REFER TO
    THE STEPS BELOW:
    1.PRESS THE HOME BUTTON ON THE BOTTOM LEFT OF YOUR PSP.
    2.USE THE ARROW KEYS TO MOVE TO THE SETTINGS AREA, THEN MOVE THE UP AND
    DOWN KEYS TO GO TO SYSTEM SETTINGS.
    3.PUSH THE \"X\" BUTTON (OR THE “O” BUTTON, DEPENDING ON WHICH BUTTON
    IS THE “ENTER” BUTTON OF YOUR PSP) AND SCROLL TO FIND THE “FORMAT MEMORY
    STICK” OPTION. PUSH THE \"X\" BUTTON AGAIN TO SELECT THIS OPTION.
    4.YOUR PSP WILL NOW CONFIRM THAT YOU WANT TO REFORMAT THE MEMORY STICK,
    CHOOSE YES AND YOUR PSP WILL BE PHYSICALLY FORMATTED IN A FEW SECONDS.
    TO DO THE DOWNGRADE, YOU ALSO NEED TO DOWNLOAD AN APPLICATION PACK.
    'CLICK HERE TO GET THE APPLICATION PACK(FIND THE GUIDES LABEL ON THE
    RIGHT SIDE, WHICH NAMED DOWNLOAD FOR PSP DOWNGRADE APPLICATION) '
    (HTTP://WWW.ISKYSOFT.COM/DOWNLOAD-PSP.HTML). AFTER THE DOWNLOADING IS
    FINISHED, WHAT YOU GET WILL BE A COMPRESSED APPLICATION PACK NAMED
    “PANDORA”, DECOMPRESS IT TO THE ROOT DIRECTORY OF A HARD DISC, SAY DISC
    H. IN THIS “PANDORA” FOLDER, YOU CAN SEE FOUR FOLDERS INCLUDING
    MSPFORMAT, MSINST, BATTERY AND INSTALLER, AND A FILE NAMED UPDATE.PBP.

    NOW YOU ARE ALL READY TO TURN YOUR PSP BATTERY TO A PANDORA’S BATTERY
    AND USE IT TO DOWNGRADE ANY PSP!
    II.TURN YOUR PSP BATTERY INTO A PADORA’S BATTERY
    Step 1: Logically reformat your PSP
    Connect your PSP to your computer. And your PSP will be recognized as a
    new hard disc, say K. Then click Start -] Run, input cmd in the popped
    up dialog box, and click OK to enter DOS system. Use the below commands
    one by one to run the mspformat file:
    Input “H:”, and press the “Enter” Key on your keyboard. (Here H is the
    disc where the “panndora” folder is located)
    Input “cd pandora” and press the “Enter” Key on your keyboard.
    Input “cd mspformat” and press the “Enter” Key on your keyboard.
    Then input “mspformat.exe K” and press the “Enter” Key on your
    keyboard. (Here K is the name of the disc that your PSP is recognized on
    your computer.)
    After these commands, your PSP will be logically reformatted in a
    minute.

    Step 2: Open the recognized PSP hard disc on your computer, create a
    new folder and name it “psp”, open this “psp” folder, create a new
    folder and name it “game”. Copy and paste the “installer” folder and the
    “battery” folder into the “game” folder. Then copy and paste the
    UPDATE.PBP file to the root directory of the PSP hard disc on your
    computer.
    Step 3: On your PSP, switch to the Game option, press X or O (depending
    on which is the “Enter” key of your PSP). Go to “installer” and press X
    or O to run it.

    In a few seconds, a file named “msipl.bin” will be created on the root
    directory of your PSP memory disc. And now, you should take out your
    memory disc and then put it back in, which seems to be useless but is a
    very necessary step.
    Step 4: Connect to your PSP back to your computer. Then enter DOS
    system as mentioned in Step 1. Use the below commands one by one to run
    the mspformat file:
    Input “H:”, and press the “Enter” Key on your keyboard.
    Input “cd pandora” and press the “Enter” Key on your keyboard.
    Input “cd minst” and press the “Enter” Key on your keyboard.
    Then input “msinst.exe K K:\msipl.bin ” and press the “Enter” Key on
    your keyboard. (Here K is the name of the disc that your PSP is
    recognized on your computer.)
    When you see a popped up message asking if you are sure, click “Yes”.
    Step 5: Go back to your PSP, switch to the Game option, press X or O
    (depending on which is the “Enter” key of your PSP). Go to “battery” and
    press X or O to run it, press X or O to OK every popped up message to
    finish running the battery application.

    Now, your pandora’s battery has been created!
    III. USE THE CREATED PANDORA’S BATTERY TO DOWNGRADE YOUR PSP
    After you turn your batter to a PSP downgrade battery (pandora’s
    battery), you can use it to downgrade your PSP by following the
    instructions below:
    1. Take out your PSP Memory Stick and battery, then put back in your
    PSP Memory Stick first, and put your battery back in.
    2. Turn your PSP power on, when you see three options; select the
    Downgrade option, your PSP will be downgraded in a very short time and
    it will be automatically shut down afterwards.
    3. Turn your PSP on again, and you will see a blue screen. But no
    worries, you can just press the O key, and your PSP system is already
    version 1.5!
    Note: The above process will turn your PSP battery to a pandora’s
    battery that can be used for PSP downgrade. But the pandora’s battery
    cannot be used to play PSP games, videos or music. And the process is
    not reversible. You will need to get an additional PSP battery for
    regular uses. However, you can use your pandora’s battery to downgrade
    any PSP to version 1.5 or even repair for .
    Now, you can get a new battery and use your downgraded PSP to upgrade
    to 3.51 or high version for play downloaded games, view pictures, read
    digital books, and run various free applications unblocked! This is
    another part about refresh PSP system and I'll expatiate later.I travel
    very frequently for my work, and another big use of my PSP is to watch
    movies on big and wide screen of my PSP. I have lots of DVD movies, so I
    always put a few movies on my PSP if I am going to travel. I have tried
    a few tools and the one I am using is named iSkysoft DVD Ripper. The
    conversion quality is really good, and besides PSP, I can also use this
    application to put movies on iPod, iPhone, Apple TV and almost any
    players. I have been using it for a few months, and so far, so good!If
    you are running a Mac OS, I have noticed they also have a version for
    Mac users-iSkysoft DVD Ripper for Mac. But I have never tried it before
    since I am only running Windows XP on my computer.
