    Semi-bricks: Put hellcats recovery flasher in PSP/GAME/UPDATE (or is it GAME/RECOVERY? (check the recovery menu for the location anyway))

    Full-bricks: Get a pandora.

    You don't really need a backup (just copy saves to your PC), just reflash to a firmware and start from there and I doubt you care for PSN.

    You can't brick a PSP unless you really try.

    it just R trigger

    if you can still load the recovery menu (you are semi-bricked)
    use the app hellcats recovery flasher
