    I have a Hacked 2000 with a pandora and a PSP go.
    I feel unsafe of doing anything to them. Tell me ways how to brick them (with software/firmware) so i know what i cannot do.

    Ways to brick them...?

    - Damage them physically
    - Downgrade below the factory provided version
    - Wipe the NAND
    - Pull the battery during update (semi-brick)
    - Mess with the NAND
    - Use a corrupted MSPD (pseudo-brick)

    - Use it as an actual brick

    I'll let others fill the gaps.

    EDIT: A semi-brick is recoverable. A pseudo-brick is not actually a brick at all, just a black screen as a result of the system not knowing what to do if it can't read the memory card. I posted about it years back when I encountered it for the first time.

    Pseudo means it's recoverable easily, because it's not an actual brick (just displays a black screen so people THINK it's a brick).

    Semi can be recovered from.

    A full brick can still be recovered from IF the PSP is hackable via pandora (so your 2000 can, while your Go cannot).
