    no obviously if it gets bricked then you have done something your not supposed to do, if the warrenty is still on the PSP then maybe you could take it back if it gets bricked.

    nope because if it's bricked then you have probably tried to downgrade or something and made a mistake, Mod Chips do unbrick them but you would have to buy one and hire somebody to do install it for you because there very tricky to do.

    is yours bricked or something?

    its a custom firmware which allows you to play isos which need 3.4 firware there is only like a 1% chance but anyway

    thats not true.a psp can be bricked by pulling the battery out while it is updating the legal sony firmware.there are other ways to brick the console too without doing something that your not supposed to.

    no but they can catch you out (if your extreamly stupid) for example if you had custom firmware 3.03 OE-A and then dicided you were going to update to official sony 3.10 firmware they can brick your console.
