    Hi all...

    I was following step by step these instructions


    Instructions
    ------------
    Here are the steps to downgrade any 3.50 PSP to 1.50:

    1 - If you have a 3.50 PSP skip to step 6

    2 - Download 3.50 update from here:
    http://dl.qj.net/PSP-Firmware-3.50-(North-America)-PSP/pg/12/fid/13840/catid/163

    3 - Unzip and place the file in <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE

    4 - On the PSP, run the 3.50 update from the memory stick under the Game menu.

    5 - Delete <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE

    6 - Copy the contents of the folder MS_ROOT from the 3.50 downgrader ZIP to
    the memory stick

    7 - Unzip the 1.50 update to a temporary folder. Rename the EBOOT.PBP to
    UPDATE.PBP and copy it to <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE/ . DO NOT
    OVERWRITE PSP/GAME/UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP!

    8 - Load Lumines and press x to start the game

    9 - The screen will clear to black and fill with a light blue colour, then
    the PSP will reset itself

    10 - Check that HEN is running by going to system settings, then to
    "System Information" and it should show up as system version
    350 HEN

    11 - If it is showing up as HEN then go to the memory stick and
    run the x.yz update

    12 - If you have an unpatched TA-082 or higher motherboard, you will be
    prompted to allow the downgrader to patch your motherboard so it
    can be safely downgraded. The downgrader will not let you proceed
    without patching, if your motherboard requires it.

    13 - Before the downgrader does anything to your PSP it will ask
    for you to agree to what it is doing, if you no longer want to
    continue press the Right Shoulder Button (R-TRIGGER).

    14 - Once you have agreed to start the downgrade do not unplug the
    PSP, or try and restart it

    15 - Once finished the PSP will ask you to press X, and reset itself

    16 - If it comes up saying that the settings are corrupt, press x
    to continue, this will mean you will need to re-enter the
    settings for network connections into your PSP, otherwise go to
    step 18

    17 - Load the included NetConfigBackup application in your PSP, and select to
    restore, this will take the backup that was done of the network config
    that was done automatically during the downgrade.

    18 - All done now :) Hopefully you now have a 1.50 PSP. Enjoy it responsibly.


    After step 15 I got a black screen with a pinkish text saying OK. I pressed X and then my screen went black... Apparently it was restarting itself... It started playing some music which I think is from Lumines but i'm not sure...

    After waiting a while I tried to restar the PSP bou no uck... I hear all the standard sounds and plin and etc but no image at all...

    Eventually when i hold the power button up i see a flash of a blue screen with lots of white txt.

    I have no idea what i've done wrong... any guess?

    Thanks!

    Try pressing the brightness display button? the one next to the musical note button at the bottom of your PSP..
