    I tried changing my XMB theme using custom theme packs and did something in flash0 folder.. I think i deleted something..

    Oh well, at first my PSP got semi-bricked : It starts but when the "Sony Computer Entertainment" logo appears, it hangs and shuts off.

    Then i checked the recovery mode, tried resetting flash, and rebooted. Now, nothing happens... Its now BRICKED.

    This can be solved by using my pandora battery and magic memory stick but my memory stick currently isnt recognized "Can't read BPB sector".
    I can buy a new one though.

    And if anyone can give some advice, I welcome it. And thanks in advance.

    Im gonna update about what's happening and might make a tutorial with scenarios and warnings.. (yes, i learned my lesson.. [​IMG])

    well as much as it is fully bricked (meaning light turns on but nothing happens) it can always be unbricked hehe


    as long as you dont have your personal settings since all your stuff is stored on the memory card

    should have no problem unbricking it

    Reformat the stick. Reinstall Pandora onto the stick. You can do it without a PSP; just do a google search or look on Maxconsole for a guide.

    Once you did that, try reinstalling the CFW using DesCem.

    Ok, my fault is not backing up the flash0 folder... [​IMG]
    And my NAND too. If that would be important.

    I have access to another PSP so i can format a memory stick via that and use the pandora installers and i would be ready to go.. [​IMG]


    EDIT:

    Fixed.. [​IMG]
    My memory stick wasnt working so i used another memory stick from a friend. Reinstalled 3.71 M33. Currently updating..

    If anyone gets trouble like mine just ask me and i'll tell you step-by-step.. [​IMG]
