    it formats as soon as the upgrade/downgrade starts. then it rewrites the system files.

    ok when ever you use an upgrader or downgrader, at the start of that process it automatically formats your flash files. It makes a clean flash to install the firmware you desire.

    Whats to make up? You were upgrading to Sonys own firmware, battery fell out and bam this happened? But when talking to the Sony people don't use words like "brick" instead say stuff like "brokeded" and "green light flashes but nothing else". Don't make it sound like you know a lot about the PSP.
