(the black wave with the sony words after a hard reset)..ive checked the opening plugin n its ok.. so im not satisfied, i decided to reflash my 3.40oe-a..n the result is still the same..btw when i replaced the topmenu like i did before, my psp wont turned on so i change the topmenu to normal n it worked.. now i customize everything except the topmenu.. so my Ques is : -why my psp suddenly turned off like that?is it a semi brick??or is there something wrong with the ir shell? -whre is my opening?is it gone already?n it is nothing wrong is not it to have no opening right?or is it bad?? -why cant i used the topmenu juz like i did before this happening?? sory 4 this very x3 long thread but any help would be really3 appreciated by me.. thnkxxs 4 ur time n thnkxss 4 the help.
