Basically all a Pandora battery and memory card do is to put the PSP into a service mode...From there you can flash a custom firmware to them...If you have a custom psp already you can make a Pandora battery from that ...if not you can buy a datel battery and mem card from somwhere like deal extreme...

Is the datel battery charged?

did you follow step 4?

4) YOUR MEMORY STICK IS NOW READY, UNPLUG THE PSP FROM THE USB CABLE, REMOVE THE BATTERY AND INSERT THE PANDORA'S BATTERY WHILST HOLDING THE LEFT SHOULDER BUTTON ON THE PSP. ONCE THE IPL HAS LOADED ON THE PSP SIMPLY PRESS THE X BUTTON. WAIT. AFTER AROUND 1 - 3 MINUTES THE FLASH SHALL BE DONE, PRESS X TO SHUTDOWN THE PSP, IT IS NOW SAFE TO REMOVE THE PANDORA BATTERY. [NOTE] ITS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO JUST WAIT AND NOT SWITCH OFF THE PSP OR REMOVE THE MEMORY STICK OR PANDORA'S BATTERY, IT COULD RESULT IN A BRICK THAT YOU DO NOT WANT.

as far as i know you do get a blank screen....you just press X and wait for around 3 mins then press X to shut the PSP down.
