    that is your whole problem...its a good idea to research a lil bit about stuff before u just start messing with flash on PSP. More and more "people" are doing this everyday. Anyhow you should have looked into recovery mode. Can you access recovery mode? Do you know how?

    ok first i turned on the PSP, then i pressed and holded R to acces the recovery mode as you told me, then i left the PSP in teh recovery mode, after that i decided to start up the 1.50 recovery installer,then as it said in the 1.5 installer program i closed all programs,then the 1.5 installer thing said to put the root of the PSP,then i putted the PSP in USB mode on the bottom part it said USB enabled, after that it just shutted down.
