    I've bricked my psp. It will not coldboot, so I can't get to the XMB. When I try to coldboot, I get a forever lasting black screen until I turn it off manually. I can use recovery mode. I got it this way by having messed up fonts, thinking I could downgrade using the HEN 3.03 method at http://www.noobz.eu/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=38&Itemid=88888898
    I used an ISO for my Grand Theft Auto, and my brick happened after the first step, which is getting HEN running. I have no idea what to do. Please help me! I spent a long time saving up for my psp!!

    Because I wanted to get back to 1.50 . I was having trouble with my fonts and such so I decided to go back. I bricked my semi-bricked my psp a while back and was able to downgrade, but It was a long time ago, and I forget how I did it.

    That sounds good, but here's a potential problem. Will I need to be able to run homebrew via PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP to use the Winstaller? Thanks alot.

    Or toggle USB Flash0 in the Recovery menu and replace whatever font you changed with the original file. Easier than downgrading then upgrading again, but you need to have made a backup. If you didn't do what the other guys are saying.

    Ok, so I used the Winstaller, and it all went well until I had to use the EBOOT. It said that I either had a corrupt dxar file or am missing one. Is there a solution?
