    Or could somebody give me their flash0 and 1 ?? I really need my psp!

    Just bought 4gb!

    Already have 2gb

    Do you have a PSP Slim? If so the only solution you have is using Dark_Alexs Universal Unbricker which you can get HERE. You will need to make a Pandora Battery first then modify the magic memory Stick with the files above.

    If you have a FAT PSP then folow the guide below...

    You will need to go HERE and download the recovery folder.

    Go into Recovery Menu and toggle the USB so you can connect the PSP to PC via USB.

    Now extract the recovery file you downloaded and drag the RECOVERY folder it extracted to the /PSP/GAME folder.

    Now disable the USB toggle and then go to RUN PROGRAM AT/PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP

    This will recover you back to 1.50 firmware. You will now need to upgrade to 3.52 M33-4 then 3.71 M33-2 custom firmware (If you happen to have a Pandora battery it would be quicker using the above universal unbricker to get back to 3.71 M33-2)

    After you get updated back to 3.71 M33-2 make sure you back up your flash0 properly. Below is a guide for doing this...

    The correct way to backup 3.71 M33/M33-2 files is by enabling flash0 via Recovery Menu (Don't flash your XMB via VSH menu or you will semi-brick).

    When the flash0 window comes up on the PC go to Tools> Folder Options> View Tab>...

    Tick the radial that says (show hidden files and folders)

    Untick the box that says (Hide Protected Operating System files).

    Click on Apply then OK.

    Now drag the flash0 files over to PC to back them up (Make sure the steps above are also done when recovering your flash0 files).

    make sure your using a custom XMB that is comaptible with 3.71 M33-2 custom firmware.

    It should work.

    I downloaded the Recovery file myself and used it on my 3.71 M33-2 PSP FAT the other day and it worked fine.

    I checked myself because it was the first time I have come across a RECOVERY Folder like this for 3.71 M33/M33-2 custom firmware. I wouldn't link to it if it didn't work.

    Yes Larry is the man, and no you are not hacking! Putting folder's in a certain place is not hacking lol. Glad you got it working though, nicely done Larry :)

    do NOT use someone elses flash files. it can result in a semi-brick.

    if you have a original fat psp, go HERE and download the files.

    if you have a psp slim, then you need the universal unbricker to get back to 3.71 m33

    why does people think that replacing someone else's flash0 could recover their psp.as cee43ja1 said, it could result in a semi-brick.if replacing flash0 in 3.71m33(2) then it's a FULL brick.so using someone else's flash0 is practically useless.

    Put the .prx file into:
    X:\PSP\THEME\
    Then go onto PSP and go to theme and choose it, the PSP will install the theme
