    Well...

    The mod chip adds another flash0 drive to your psp (think of it as a backup generator...when the lights go out, the backup generator restores power/functionality)

    Yes your psp will work after it is installed correctly. However, the original corrupted flash0 still needs to be fixed. You will have to reflash your original flash0 with a copy of a non corrupted flash0.

    What kind of a question is that? It doesn't even unbrick your orignal flash, it only technically "unbricks" because of the second flash on board the modchip. So really, you can't just install the modchip, take it out and expect your PSP to work normal, you have to keep in there. I know there is a way to re-install firmware on your orignal flash0, so then the modchip is kind of useless unless you brick your main flash again, because i don't think it will boot up then since its more used to repair your PSP.
