    My PSP has been acting pretty strange it seems that it turns on half the opening screen turns on but then it just freezes and tats anoying. I think its because i flashed it. But i used generic flasher and put my rco of the skull opening thing then it flashed through then i presses triangle and then the screen went black and i took the batery out because nothing else was working and then it just keep doing a quarter of the opening thing. Is this a Brick? a semi-brick? or none of these a is fixable? thanks or thanks anyway in advance.

    it's a semi-brick but those can only be fixed in cfw's by overwriting the flash with a firmware dump of their choice (or running the update from recovery mode)

    yes, i did flash it through generic flasher (for the wave backgrounds and icons and stuff). but... it completed the flashing then when i went triangle and frooze black screen then i took the batery out and booted it up again then boom! freezes half way through the startup screen thing. it may be because i put tat skeliton wave thing in the waves folder on my PSP generic flasher folder but it just didn't work and decided to semi-brick it i think.
    But waves should go in the waves folder.

    how can you customize your psp if in the last topic you posted you said you have 3.40 but not the oe, so im assuming you have sony firmware, and i dont think you can do things like that to it
