    Hello Guys, need some help. I upgraded my PSP to firmware 3.80 M33-4 and put a xmb theme on there and it semi bricked it. I've trying to recover it as I can get into the recovery menu but it's just not happening.

    The funny thing also is that although I upgraded to 3.80 my kernel is showing as 1.50 or 3.71. I've put the recovery folder in the Game folder with all the necessary files or so I think. But when I select run program at (Recovery) nothing happens. I'm stumped as to what is happening and your help would be much appreciated.

    Also when I select Exit in the recovery menu nothing happens either.

    That would help me massively. I tried my backup Flash 0 files but they don't seem to do anything either.

    The first time I got the BSOD I did press O, does that mean it's dead?

    one, it's against forum rules to post email addresses.

    two, NEVER use someone elses flash0. you can permanently brick that way. use pandora's battery and universal unbricker v4 to get back to 3.80 m33.

    My bad, won't happen again.

    I'll try what you've suggested. I've got a Pandora's battery but it just wont charge, got no idea why but I'll probably just use my original battery and make it into one.

    Thanks again.
