    So I was on this page trying to load up some cool new themes on my psp, when I made a mistake. To put these themes on your PSP you have to enter flash0 from recovery mode. Once you plug in your USB all you have to do is delete the CID file, but I accidentally deleted the vsh and font files in there too. I backed up the files on to my PC, just incase something bad were to happen, and it did. Now whenever I turn on my PSP it gives me a black, blank screen. I can't enter recovery mode. Looks like I might've bricked my PSP. Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    Yes. I had to go into recovery mode to change the files, and deleted the wrong ones. [​IMG]

    Find someone with a battery, or use a Datel one.

    Is it even technically "bricked"? Would using the Datel Battery solve the problem?

    yeah, you'll be fine using the pandora battery method to reinstall the firmware

    If you backed up the original flash0 files. Place them back in and you'll be fine. Next time use CTF theme files. It's much easier to use.

    Need CXMB plugins

    Edit: Oh LULZ you can't enter recovery mode. Yeah I agree with everyone that said to pandoras/MMS that thing.

    I don't know a friend that has one, and I can do it myself. I'll probably hardmod my battery tonight.
