Hello everyone, I’m Ayamari. I’ve been the owner of a PSP since July. However, I’ve done the downgrader from my version to 1.50 this fall. Everything has been alright this far… but yesterday has been my “crap day”. 3.03 OE-C : That’s the version I’ve tried to put on my PSP and to flash it. I’ve been following the guide and my battery has been 100%, my memory card formatted… However, everything has been well until the last part. When the flash writing has been finished, the PSP has shown a different message than the one suggested in the guide (“Press X to shut down. Reboot manually” while the original one is “Reboot manually” alone or something like that). When I’ve rebooted my PSP, the screen has remained black. No sound, no picture, only the green light on for 30 second and it turns off after. I’ve tried to remove the battery for some hours, changing memory cards, and a lot of little tricks like this… But nothing works and I can’t even access the recovery mode. By the way, I can still access to my memory content by an adaptor using a USB cable but I’m sure it won’t change the way that my PSP is booting. I’m looking for solutions and not for “sorry” posts or “joker” comments. I’ve browsed a lot of PSP forums which are like… 300 posts and 20% of them are actually pertinent – so I can’t really find good answers. People mostly approves that this problem means that my PSP is bricked, but well. PSP-1001K : That’s my PSP model (or it isn’t that?). I need some answers to these questions too. 1) If I want to exchange my PSP by using the Sony program, how does it work? Or will it work fine? How will the new PSP be? Will they found out? And what they will ask me if I DON’T HAVE THE FREAKING BILL BECAUSE MY FATHER HAS THROWN IT AWAY!? 2) Mod chip. I know this is a solution… but will it work with my “total brick” problem? And the sundering isn’t hard or it is hard? I’m not really good at this and my mom isn’t either. 3) Mother board. Not a lot of information on this, but some people says it works, some others says it won’t… Thanks.
