    No, not totally screwed..You need the UMD game Lumines (the first one-not LuminesII), along with the 3.50 downgrader so you can downgrade your psp-But whatever you do, DO NOT upgrade your psp using the network update or via game update any further!! There is not a downgrader yet for 3.51, or 3.52...

    And in the future, dont use just any program for recovering your psp-

    Had you made a backup of your flash0 folder, you would not have needed to run any recovery....

    Yes, the problem is Lumines can be hard to obtain. You can get it off Amazon.com right now, but it will be gone soon.

    i think ive said this somewhere before. "dont ur shops in the areas provide downgrade/upgrade services?"

    my area do. so theres no need to buy GTA LCS or luminess for that matter, just pay them 10 bucks and they do it for you.

    but thats not my point. just wanna say before messing with ur flash drive, make sure to back it up, so in the event of a brick, just replace the flash0 folder back. then u dont have to run any recovery program. (and i dont dare to trust them) some are out there just to brick ur psp.

    Whoa, what shops provide that service!? That's bad for them because they'll be losing money from people not buying their games....

    haha but its true!

    guess they rather earn that 10 bucks, since if everyone at home is using CFW, they would also lose business!

    It doesnt matter what motherboard you have because there is a patch for TA-082 motherboards in the downgrader..You just need to use the noobz 3.50 downgrader and you need a copy of the game Lumines..You dont need the GTA:LCS game, just Lumines...
