    I've been trying to update to 6.39pro on my non TA88v3 PSP, and I just installed OFW 6.39. Problem is, now when I go to turn it on, all I get is a green light. No screen, just the light, which just stays on. I have a pandora battery and an MMS, so I'm going to see if I can reflash it, but is this a known issue?

    did you uninstall 5.50 GEN-D3 prome before updating?

    also, if you're planning on moving into a newer LCFW, you should remove your seplugins folder, as newer LCFWs don't support older plugins which may cause it to crash.

    I thought that 5.50 GEN-D3 was upgrade proof, and that the only way to upgrade, was to downgrade first.

    I had to play with the versions.txt to make it tell the 6.39 update that I wasn't on 9.90. Could that be the cause?

    EDIT: deleted everything except PSP folder on the root. Problem solved. [​IMG]

    The proper way to get back to OFW is with some flashing utility such as pandora or Hellcat's.

    CFWs can Fuck Shit Up™ when it comes to upgrading as they modify some parts of the OS, and plugins can cause more issues.

    what i did is gone back into 5.50gend3 installer and pushed install OFW 5.50, this is so that it format all flashes then reflashes offical 5.50 on,
    then i upgraded to 6.20
