    In light of the incredibly fast advancements in the PSP hombrew scene during the past few weeks, I was curious about the condition of bricked psp support.

    I have no knowledge of the workings of psp flash, but I was wondering: Would it be possible, some time in the future, to be able to flash a bricked psp via usb or maybe even boot a bricked psp via usb and flash memory on your computer?

    Is this even remotely feasable?

    Well without a mod-chip and without having installed custom firmware. Maybe someone, let's not say who, bricked his psp downgrading. :)

    Actually, the best way that I see it is to fake faking knowledge. Like, walk in and say it died. "I think its something with the master loader" or some other BS that doesnt even exist:)

    EDIT- and if they ask about firmware, you could say something like its version A or somethin like it. Make sure though, that they cant mistake you for OE firmware.

    Or just pretend you were upgrading to 3.11, when it bricked without any cause. Happens.

    unfortunately that only works if you havent passed up your one year warranty. unless u purchased an extended one. if u are not able to take ur psp back, then once again cheapest/best method is a new mobo.

    two years here also but i had to pay 40 bux for it. it was nice tho i must of gotten atleast 10 new psp's from best buy extended warranty. They dont ask any questions. Mine didn't even have warranty sticker. Sometimes I even broke on purpose to get a new one :D

    Just a question guys...

    I know it's dishonest but I'm thinking if definately returning my PSP, I'm just gonna say I broke it and I need a new one because I really want damn homebrew and I've had my PSP for about 4 months and haven't been able to do anything with it, it came with 2.01, which I stupidly upgraded to 3.03 and now I'm stuck because I don't have a copy of GTA:LCS.

    So I'm wondering when I take it back, I'll say it won't turn on at all because of a firmware update, will the people at the store actually check to see if it works or inquire anything or will they just give me a replacement. By the way I'm still under the 1 year warranty.

    Ya, they'll check it, they won't know though, if it's really broken, just be like" my psp went out when I was upgrading and ..."

    Eh, it works, but is it actually bricked?

    it all depends on where you take it back to....some shops check everythings ok and others dont

    just do what i did when i bricked my PSP....buy a new PSP from a shop and return the bricked PSP saying it didnt work....get all your money back and you have a brand spanking new PSP (when i did this about 2 months ago i was lucky enough to get a v2.01 replacement!)
