    please please help me!

    i think i may have bricked my psp today when i used theme psp from dcemu.co.uk forums. i tried putting a darthvader theme on it and i got the blue screen of death, the one that tells you to press circle to restore settings. but when i do press circle it comes right back up.

    my psp runs 3.02eb firmware. i dont think its completely bricked because i can still play umd games and i can access the restore menu when i hold the R trigger and turn it on. i can also toggle the usb on and off.

    is there any way i can use restore to get my psp working again? I dont think i still have all the files for recovery because i lost my other memory card which had the recovery folder on it. when i tried to recover it it said that update.prb or something was missing...

    please help me i beg you!!

    get the recovery files, then replace the EBOOT.PBP file with the 3.03 OE-A upgrade. it should recover..mine did.

    ok ignore the last post aswell cos i got it working under GAME but i still havnt got it working under GAME/BOOT/ but i dnt care cos i like the option at startup of being able to go to XMB rather than goin to IRSHEL. recently i have been trying to copy the files from Star wars BFII from the UMD to the memory stick but it must b bigger than 220MG cos my friend copied dynasty warriors and it was only 100MG and was playin it which was pretty cool i thought cos u can save money on buying games. Now for a ?'n can u download UMD games of the internet or off like Lime wire?


    PSP FW 3.03OE-A

    I somehow managed to semi-brick my psp as well.
    I did copy the recovery files into the game folder on my psp. Ran the recovery programme on my psp. It then just freezes for a while and then switches off. Does anyone know what i could be doing wrong or what I should do?? PLEASE!!! Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

    Hey ppl who have semi bricked their psp. if u read the previous posts to where a person has told u that u have to name the EBOOTS other things cos i had the same problem with the screen freeze it is fixable and when/if you fix it go straight to 3.03OE-B (i think or the latest D_A FW). If u read from the top post and that will tell u what to do. And i am running FW 3.03OE-B and i couldnt be happier cos it has the net and i have wireless router and othe cool stuff like viualisations for music so FW 1.5 is rather pathetic now and i could downgrade whenever i wanted. SO do the above things and let me kno..

    hope this answers some Q'Ns
