    Cool. I was running the OFW 6.35 update, plugged into the charger, and it bricked while updating.

    It got to 10 percent and it just died. EVEN THOUGH IT WAS FULLY CHARGED.


    I have been on the PSP scene for a long time, and I am sure there is no way to save it. However, if there is any miracle cure you guys know of give it to me.

    I got nothing to lose, since my PSP is already dead.

    Yet another reason why the fully hackable ones are better.

    If it wasn't hacked before, call up Sony. If it's on warranty they can fix it for free/cheap.

    Did you have TN Hen active when you tried to update? That might have been the problem, just guessing.

    I hope so. My GameStop I got it from also had a 1 year warranty, but I don't know what the condition/colour of the replacement would be...

    I will call Sony, and see how it goes.

    I figured there is no miracle cure. a brick is a brick lol.

    Nope. TN was not activated, ran the updater from OFW.

    I really don't know what happened.

    Turn it on whole holding SELECT+START+SQUARE+TRIANGLE (I think that's the combination) to tell it to reset the settings, and hope it was just a settings issue and not the firmware itself.

    Downgrader? I thought you were going up! Anyway, it's worth a shot even though 5ony might be suspicious about why you were upgrading to (or downgrading from) 6.35.

    BTW- ask Rydian for advice -- he knows alot about the psp [​IMG]

    If you've used a previous temporary firmware you'll be lucky to get this resolved successfully. Possibly if you'd done that flash1 flush before the update that may have helped, although of course now, as you've seen, it's pointless.
