    psp MAX Power TOOL Appears at Play Asia

    Before i go sleep i like to see whats coming soon for consoles and lo and behold Play Asia are now taking preorders on the Max Power Tool



    features
    Special TOOL version of our PSP battery works in exactly the same way as a standard SONY PSP battery but has the ability to put your PSP into service mode for custom firmware use.
    TOOL functionality is hard-coded into the battery.
    Same 1800mAh Lithium Polymer cell as our standard battery.

    Its retailing at $25(12) but heres the curious thing, theres no mention of it coming with a Mem Card which you need for the Pandora Downgrader/Unbricker. Now this comes from Datel and its likely its using the Pandora Code or maybe was sold to them pre pandora.

    What i will say is that for PSP Owners who dont already have a Homebrew PSP or easily get hold of one this is a way in to Homebrew or unbricking.

    If they're using the pandora code wouldn't that be illegal?

    yeah i hate selling the pandora but if its for gamers with no homebrew this is good for them but if u have a friend with a homebrew psp downgrade it for them for free dont be assholes and make them pay.

    Does this work for the PSP Slim?

    Who said they used the Pandora's Battery software to change the serial number on the battery? They could do that themselves.

    Wasn't something like this frontpaged last month? I believe it was Datel last time though.

    Even if the code is by Max and not stolen from the C+D Team, without selling or offering any Memory Stick, they would be implying that you would have to use the C+D Team code anyway. Rather pointless.

    Exactly what I have been saying all along. They didn't rip anything from pandora, though they are indeed making the most of the opportunity the public release of pandora gave to sell their relatively junky batteries for something actually useful.

    This "TOOL" is ONLY A BATTERY. They had to reverse the real battery to produce a 'normal' 3rd party battery, it's definitely not that big of a leap after that to make the serial whatever they want it to be (and it's not like they are charging more for it).

    They could have sold this thing at any time (I had one of those AAA battery things here for a while, I noted the serial starts out as 0x0'd which makes the PSP turn on when the battery is inserted), but until Prometheus released Pandora, there would have been no real public use for it.
