    Hi all, this is my first post and I'm sad =(

    My psp is running 3.52 m33-4 and i attempted to change the psp theme to a 'apple' theme.

    Boot into recovery mode, toggle usb whilst usb is connected to the pc and would overwrite certain files there.

    I don't know what went wrong...but after that I tried to boot up my psp, the light goes on green but the screen remains black and nothing happens...

    I tried plugging it into the pc but to no avail.

    Anyone prehaps know of any resolutions or tips please.

    Thanks in advance

    That exact same thing happend to me just yesterday... the only way I could fix it is just keep trying to toggle usb from recovery till you get it then go to google and search "recovery folder" click the first link and follow the instuctions hope this helps you... if not then a pandoras battery is a must

    Gonna have to try the pandora battery.

    If you can't go into recovery then you will need to use the Pandora battery method.

    HERE is a guide to make a Pandora Battery with the Universal Unbricker/Upgrader. This will install straight to 3.71 M33-2 custom firmware.

    You will need someone that has a 3.XX custom firmware PSP to create the Pandora Battery + Unbricker/Upgrader.

    If you don't want 3.71 M33-2 custom firmware then don't do the step 7 part of the guide ("Despertar del Cementero"). Skipping that step will let you recover back to 1.50 firmware so you can install whatever custom firmware you want.
