    I'm not sure how to fix it ...

    But I think recovery files DON'T work on 3.71 M33...

    I'm not just sure..
    But maybe there still a way...

    Search for the recovery folder for this firmware on google.

    Put this into PSP\GAME\RECOVERY\ and then select run Eboot at ...

    To turn on USB mode in recovery select toggle USB

    Thats the correct RECOVERY FOLDER> Go into recovery menu and toggle the USB and drag the RECOVERY folder that extracts from the file above into the /PSP/GAME folder. Then go down to "RUN PROGRAM AT /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP

    If you have a PSP SLIM then you will need to use a Universal Unbricker. The RECOVERY folder above will not work.

    Once you get back to 3.71 M33-3 and you want to flash a theme go HERE and follow the steps to correctly backup your Flash0 files.

    ok, I have placed the recovery folder under psp/game/ and ran the recovery from the recovery mode menu it ran ok and I went through the procedure at the end it told me press X to reset your system and that the process was done I press X and nothing happened I waited and didn't reset, so I just turned it off, but now it doesnt do anything just a black screen the power light stays on and doesn't turn off??? what's happening in this case?

    Thanks.

    Try pressing the brightness button near the PSP logo and Select and Start buttons...
