Is there a way of running Keycleaner when using a Pandora battery?
I have a PSP slim that is not booting (I do not know the history, I
bought it that way.).
I can get Pandora to boot and DC5 to install but when I reboot,
nothing.
I tried DC4 and 3 same result. I then tried formatting lFlash. Re-
install DC5, still the same.
I am now thinking corrupt keys. But can anyone throw some light on
this problem?

Yes, but it wouldn't do you any good. The keys on the Slim are
encrypted and can only be read/written by KC or IDSM at the XMB. Use
nandTools 0.3b1 on the Slim at the Pandora level.

The keys are probably not the issue. Bad flash partition 1 is the
likely culprit. What you want to try is this:

Save the NAND just as it is as a backup.
Get someone else's NAND image.
Use nandTools to write just the partitions... don't overwrite the
idstorage area.
See if it boots then.

If that doesn't work, it's almost certainly a hardware issue, not a
software one.
