    Well Long story short I installed the Prometheus V2.0. plugin on my 5.00 m33 and I used the All in Flash's installation and now I think my PSP is semi bricked. I should have carefully read this "-Be carefull to use the “All in Flashs installation”, because (if something goes wrong!) it could bring your PSP in a semibrick status!" Now whenever I load up a game I can't load a save file and some games just don't start up. So how do I fix a semi bricked PSP? I tried uninstalling the Prometheus V2.0 but nothing changes. I can still access my XMB and the homebrew does load. any help will be apericaited.

    I would guess that you could use Hellcats flash recovery (or something like that) and reflash your psp to 5.00 m33... Might fix your problem.

    This.
    Normally place the hellcats folder in PSP/GAME and then boot it up by the recovery menu.

    who's dumb enough to use other firmware's than m33
    i never liked other teams like gen
    they always make the psp act weird
    5.50 gen d3 make my psp act so weird
    it was almost going to break my umd slot
    only use m33

    You sir, are an idiot.
    Custom firmware cannot physically break your 'UMD slot'.
    It's up to the OP which firmware he goes on not you.

    maybe you semi bricked it because you were supposed to install it on 5.50 Gen-D3 not 5.00 m33
