    Hello all,

    I downgraded from 2.71 to 1.5 on my ta-081 with no problems, then installed 3.10 oe-a. Used it for about a week and a half.

    Thinking i was completely safe from a brick, i had been putting it in sleep mode during the game world series poker (playing from iso). One day i tried to turn it on and it was bricked. Not semi but completely. Cannot even access the recovery menu.

    It seemed very strange because I am very careful about even not turning it off during saving, etc. Although I don't think that would cause it, it would be the blue screen of death, which is not a big deal.

    So I am kinda scared about using homebrew software after i fix my psp.

    Any ideas??

    i dont' think its a brick...bricks are caused when u mess with flash, ISOs don't mess with flash, only downgrading, upgrading, customizing, etc.

    maybe its out of batteries?

    That's what I thought(hoped for) initially, but then tried plugging ac adapter, charging the battery fully, still wouldn't work, then tried a different memstick, or no memstick, or with and without umd, all the combinations.

    I couldn't believe it because I wasn't messing with the flash when it happened. I try to turn it on, power light comes on for 15-20 sec, then turns off. Just like people describe their bricks. . .
