    hey gang
    first off let me thank you all for the mounds of information ive gotten from the forums up till now :)
    you all are a buncha smart sons of guns : )

    anyhow my problem,
    ok i have a psp originally a 1.50 type (purchased third week of US release)
    every so often ill come on line find some nice homebrew to put on it .. then i discovered all about Dark Alex and his latest greatets FW
    so i downgraded from the 2.71 ( thanks to mortal kombat unchained )
    down to 1.50 and installed Dark Alex's open source (3.03 i blieve )
    anyhow i was trying to transfer and convert some psx games i own onto my psp and got into the recovery menu . here is where things go bad ..
    i went into the configuration menu and changed the
    Game folder homebrew (currently 3.03) to Game Folder homebrew (currently 1.50 )
    what i was trying to do was to restore my psp to 1.50 as i was told recovery would do however when ever i turn on my psp its a black screen the memory stick light flickers for a few seconds then turns itself off ...
    so i went back and changed the option i had changed back to the default restarted .. did the same thing again .. black screen
    memory light flickers and shutdown ..

    now before i get flamed for being a noob and all that i could use a hand in getting my psp back up and running, and being a bit of a technotard please step by step instructions in fixing it would be thankful

    many thanks in advance gang and keep up the good work

    get the recovery folder from someone, and then when in recovery toggle usb, and put the recovery folder in X:\PSP\GAME\RECOVERY

    then you'll be fine.

    on the recovery screen

    top of the list is toggle usb.


    click that, then on ur pc drag the recovery folder w/ it's contents to where it should be, then on ur psp run the recovery portion.

    guide is, rip or download psx game in .iso or .bin/.cue format (if it's already in eboot.pbp w/ a keys.bin ur set) if it's .iso or .bin/.cue then run it thru zingaburga's popstation, and it'll turn it into eboot.pbp and create a keys.bin u then place those 2 files into a folder inside of game

    so like this

    X:\PSP\GAME\FFVII\
    then inside that folder would be your eboot.pbp and keys.bin
