    Well, I just got my 1 gig memory stick and a new game. So before I went to play my game I decided to re-downgrade to 1.5. So I upgraded to 2.8 and ran the 2.8 -> 1.5 downgrader. I was watching a youtube video on how to do it. and i noticed i missed a step. the pressing the START button for 2 secons over the xLoader icon. Well when I noticed that i was in the downgrading step. and it was take longer then i expected so i decided to turn off the psp using the switch. DUMB MISTAKE. Now whenever i try to turn my PSP on i see the "sony computer entertainment" logo and the line in the background stretches a bit like normal. So I start reading about semi-bricked PsP's and come across a tutorial on how to unbrick it. So i run it in recovery mode i do everything the tut tells me too and apparently I was missing some files so when i went to leave i pressed a few buttons to see if they would create the file i needed, I ended up flashing my psp (whatever that means) and now when the logo pops up it takes about 20 seconds and then the psp turns off. When i try to run recovery it DOESNT WORK?!

    Please help. I can't believe I was so stupid. If I get this fixed I don't think I will be doing any downgrading. Unless I'm feeling brave enough to do so. Which I probably will so yea.
