    i heard from one of my friends that if you brick a psp, you should take out the battery for alittle and then put it back in and it should work,
    i dont belive this but i want to know what everyone else has to say

    There have been incidents that a somehow partly damaged PSP repaired itself within weeks (including my own Wlan) but a brick means the flash is (partly) damaged which means if you don't have a custom firmware or if you have bad luck, you need a new mainboard. There is just no way a completely bricked mainboard repairs itself.

    Yes of course there is always a chance of bricking your PSP when flashing it. Also if there was something wrong with the gameboot.pmf it could also brick your psp. But if you have customfirmware and you have the recovery installed on ur psp chances are you can unbrick your psp. Just to be safe with the gameboots i recomend using ones that other people have used and can confirm that they are in fact workign correctly. Hope this helps.

    First off lol i also use advent children gameboot :). 2nd sure i can help you. Ok first off you said you have the recovery installed thats good. But make sure its in X:\PSP\GAME\RECOVERY
    where it says Recovery that should be your recover folder with about 5 files in there. so if you ever need to recover all you do is power off our PSP then turn it back ok holding R (the right toggle switch on the top) then it will go to a screen with options there will be an option that says RUn program at X:\PSP\GAME\RECOVERY you just click on that and then it will say youre about to flash your PSP blahblahblah and you press X and it reflashes it back to 1.50 :)
    and then ur good to go. Hope this helps. If you need anymore info on nethign let me know i like to help.

    Yes and I actaully have the recovery files that i use on my psp right here that I have uploaded here is the link
    http://rapidshare.com/files/14834441/302_OE-A_B___Recovery.rar
    all you do is extract the files and in there you will see a folder called RECOVERY just put that on your memory stick at
    X:\PSP\GAME\
