    Hey All...this is my first post...after much reading and downloading and getting confused, ive decided to ask for help....I have a psp running 3.03 OE-C, and I know how to find recovery menu(*so don't think im a proper goob)...anyways...I tried to vsh(flash0) a boot sound....and after restart, my psp is either partially or fully bricked...I am having problms finding out which..."Red screen of death"

    anyways...i have heard of others using recovery on 3.03 OE-C to downgrade(*i guess) to fw 3.03US....

    anywho...I am having one really hard time here....ANY and ALL help is appreciated...


    thanks

    I know im no total expert, but I have run the recovery enough times since this post to help a little....

    what FW version are you trying to recover to? I always use the "recover to 1.50" option, and download my update eboots from http://dl.qj.net...

    the best thing to do in any case mate, is to find out what folders are contained within your game/flasher directory. (assuming you are able to even view your recovery module now ;)


    good luck mate

    How do you know if your PSP is semi-bricked?

    When you turn it on it shows a black screen and in 30secs turns off

    Semi-Bricking is when you get either a red or blue screen; and in some instances a black screen; which in this case could be fixed through OE recovery...

    I think the black screen is only really for full bricks, cause very few black-screen'd psp's come back from the dead...

    moment of silence.......................................

    Full Brick ~ No sounds, only back light power and green light. Will display orange light for charging.Recovery on custom firmware may work.

    Semi Brick ~ PSP will boot on with sounds and video but may freeze at Sony Computer Entertainment Screen or gameboot ..etc. Recovery On Custom Firmware will work.

    More info: The Blue screen will go away after one display. It is displayed due to a corrupted registry that will be repaired. the Red screen will not go away and requires you to have a custom firmware to repair.

    Sorry if some of the info is the same as in previous posts but i just wanted to clarify it a bit.

    Hi im new here just got mine out of the box and read some things about this OE..

    Im getting interested in having this OE to my PSP but i also i read on this bricking the PSP or turning it into an expensive paper weight and im really bothered..

    From what i read so far if you have this OE you may have chances restoring the PSP in any case it is bricked. Is it true?

    and ibjaredu what does Recovery on custom firmware may work mean?

    thanks.

    You have to have caused the brick from the custom firmware for the recovery file to work, and it may work, depending on the kind of brick, so if you can still access the recovery then it is a semi break, if you can't then it is full brick.
