    My friend at school, he is very informative when it comes to things like from games to world events. He knows a lot about psp stuff such as homebrew and downgrading. Once he downgraded my friends psp which he newly bought and it was around firmware 3. something. Mine was 2.5 Even though the board was no downgradable, it didn't matter to him because he could still downgrade any psp he wants. So I hand him my psp today and said he is going to downgrade it and put some games in it for me. Do you guys think there is a high chance that psp is going to brick?

    Anyways, I am interested in learning more about psp homebrew. I am also going to download a lot of ISO so that I can use the devhook to load the games.

    for the record, the only way your psp can brick is when you flash your psp. when you upgrade and downgrade to new firmwares, you flash your psp. the more you flash it, the higher the chance of you bricking your psp. adding isos wont brick it.

    You got a couple options...

    A)Get a Undiluted Platinum Mod Chip for the PSP (costs as much as a new PSP)

    B)Get a new PSP

    C)Buy a new PSP motherboard and swap yours out with the new one. The store http://www.consolezombie.com sells version 1.5 motherboards for $89 I believe. So if you or someone you know and trust is tech savy you could get a version 1.5 motherboard from Console Zombie for $89 + shipping and be set to upgrade to a custom firmware
