    This is annoying, I can't seem to get any homebrew that requires CFW to launch.

    All my normal games and my UMDs function fine, and when I try to run homebrew without being in CFW I get that standard "This software could not be started" error message.

    Ok, that's fine, but when I try booting into CFW and then launch homebrew.... all I get is a black screen and nothing happens.

    So in an attempt to fix it, I uninstalled my CFW, then tried to follow this guide:

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-install-psp-6-61-pro-c-infinity-custom-firmware.468844/

    I uninstalled my CFW, updated to 6.61, ran the temp CFW..... but when I try to run the Infinity Firmware Builder app my PSP just locks up at a black screen. Nothing happens, I have to hold down the power button to shut it off.

    Are you using any plugins? Have you tried reformatting the memory card or using another memory card? Have you tried resetting to factory settings?

    Seems formatting the MemoryStick fixed it. I don't know if it was too full (I doubt it, there was about 100-200MB free) or if something was corrupted that a reformat fixed.

    better watch out that memory card isn't fake as problem could come back so i would advice you to make a backup of your sd card.
