    What do you mean failed? And first of all what firmware do you have and did you take out the memory stick or something stupid like take out the UMD while upgrading?

    Doesn't matter even if u had custom firmware, when u cut power to a update, update fails, anything like that, you have a permanent permanent. you have 2 options :

    1.) Undiluted Platinum Modchip - Economically retarded
    2.) Buy a new motherboard

    ONLY TWO OPTIONS

    Ok ur best bet would be motherboard. It's what u screwed up on your psp and is causing it to not boot. Buying that would be the to revive it. The best way. About 80 bux, and then cost for labor :D
