    Something really strange is happening to my 3.40 OE-A PSP
    I originally had a 2.81 with TA-082 motherboard, i then ...
    upgraded to 3.03 official firmware
    downgraded to 1.50
    upgraded to 3.40 OE-A custom firmware

    after this, a lot bit of games worked but a few fail to start or crash once the game opened. also I could not access the configuration menu in recovery mode.

    I found out that this is because flash1 files were corrupted so i downloaded the Flash1 Formatter.

    I formatted flash1 and the configuration menu works !

    now for the weird part

    I start my psp and the screen is black (but on), couldnt do anything except go into recovery mode
    I messed around with the flash1 formatter trying all the options and same problem persisted

    I thought that then maybe my psp was semi bricked,
    so ( following the instructions of other threads ) i deleted the flash1 folder and restarted, the SonyComputer Logo flashed on and the initial setup page (with like 10 languages) appear and tell me to press O

    I press O and no response, moments later the psp goes back to black stays like that

    i think maybe it has something to do with my button assign option in recovery mode, it's weird, button assign says ( currently O is enter ) i try to change it and over and over it says " Button assign : X is enter " yet on the screen ( currently O is enter ) doesnt change

    should probably not post multiple threads asking about the same issue...but in any event-you will have to get a hold of the 1.5 recovery deal,and go back to 1.5 FW, after that you can upgrade to your custom firmware again..and for god sakes, back up your flash files before messing with them...
