    Shouldnt be dangerous but when anything deals with flashing the memory it could be sketchy so just read the readme's and procede with caution
    Cheers!!!

    thx! it was just that i read on another thread i think, that it was bad to conitnously downgrade... as it leaves remnents in the flash, and the poissibility of bricking goes up everytime.. Anywhoo much thx

    well i wasnt doing it myself... but it said with every "Downgrade" the chance of bricking goes up significantly.. because it leaves a bit of the last downgrade in the flash.. and it will screw up the next ones.. i didnt kno if it was true or not? guessing not?

    first off....its called recovery, not a downgrade when you go from a custom firmware back to 1.50...constantly recovering.....no, you shouldnt have any problems...

    but constant downgrading 3.03 sony to 1.50 sony will leave remnents in the flash0....i wont say it will brick your psp for sure, but after a while this could become dangerous for ur psp....

    yeah, but unfortunately for sony...DAX's firmware is much smother than any sony firmware above 1.5....and "downgrading" from an OE to 1.5 doesnt leave any bs in f0...(hate that too, cause i dont know what to delete)...bleh 1.5

    Well if you semi-brick it you can flash it back to 1.50.

    If you've completely bricked it you need to send it into "Bricked PSP for Humanity" so they can mortar it together with other PSP's that have bricked to build shelters for the homeless.

    no downgrading back to 1.50 is not the only option, you can reflash to save aggro. which was why i asked did gasconade downgrade or reflash his firmware. i learned to reflash thru guano :D. thanks guano
