    I tried going back to GEN-A from CFWE but all it did when I clicked reboot was black screen, freeze, and turn off. Then, I tried staying with CFWE but it did the same, I think me flashing GEN-A conflicted with what CFWE already flashed? Anyways, I can't run either one now but I can use ChickHEN. Any ideas on what I should try? Is there any way I can clear what both of the CFW wrote into the flash?

    Did you back up your flash0 before you started flashing the new CFWE files?

    No, I did not, I didn't know how to. Is there any way I can still fix my PSP? I've seen a couple of options on a website but none of them seem to work because they either need a backup of flash 0 or CFWE to be enabled which I don't have either. I see another option which is to install later ofw but that can't exactly be done considering I'm on a PSP 3000, I'd have to wait till another expilot. Is it possible to reinstall OFW 5.03? I figure there should be another way just in case something does go wrong. Should I try downgrading my CFWE version? I don't want to damage my PSP any further but if it's worth a try and shouldn't be any more problematic than what I have now, why not?

    I'm guessing you'd then update to CFWE 3.60

    Okay, erm should I back up my flash0 after step 6? I don't really get how it would make my flash back into the origional files. Also, to reset your PSP to factory mode, it means go to Settings->System->Restore Default Settings? Also, is formatting my memory stick intended to wipe off the bad things off of my memory stick or is it to just run ChickHEN/CFWE only? I have a few memory sticks and I figure it would suffice if that were the case. I was wondering because I'd need to back up my memory stick before I format it.

    Unless you manually erase all the new flashed files you'll never have a factory restored PSP now you've messed with these temporary firmwares. Yes Restore Defaults is what that guide is referring to. Formatting the stick is just intended to start you off fresh. Using a new MS instead which has been formatted is just the same. Regular back-ups is never a bad thing.

    Great, CFWE 1.0 says my PSP isn't PSP 2000, exiting. So I guess I can't use this method.

    Wow, apparently I just fixed it by uninstalling CFWE and reinstalling it by holding the R button. I figured out how to after looking it up. Anyways, is there any way to uninstall GEN A? From what I've looked up, there isn't a way, I'm trying to remove all CFW crap off my flash0 and then back it up/reinstall the CFW. Does anyone know what files are put into flash by GEN A and or CFWE?

    Upon trying to run GEN A so I can try to find a way to uninstall it from flash, same thing happens, black screen and crash.

    I'm going to back up my Flash0 right now, with CFWE installed. Should I back up only Flash 0 or all of the flash sections?

    After backing up my flash0, it seems that nothing is written into it because all the files' properties say that they were all modified on the same date and same time and is dated at 3/19/09, I think before ChickHEN 09 was created, did I back up the wrong thing or is it hidden?

    I still want to be able to run GEN A by the way so if anyone knows how to uninstall it or remove flash files from it, tell me.

    Why do you want 5.03 GEN rather than 3.60 CFWEnabler? The latter is updated far more frequently and to an observer would seem the superior choice of the two.

    I've been trying to run CXMB but it seems the plugin line gets deleted whenever I run CFWE so I wanted to try GEN. However, other plugins run fine. The Unofficial CXMB v2 says it's made specifically for GEN so I was planning to try it to see if it was either a problem with CXMB or if it was a problem with GEN.

    In any case, I want to delete GEN off my flash0 so I can have a clean backup of my flash0 instead of having corrupted GEN files.
