    Way back in the day I bricked my Wii, I must have installed some bad IOSs or something, but it gave the "Error has occured" screen upon boot. Luckily I had BootMii installed and a backup on hand to recover

    My old Samsung Galaxy.

    It was stuck in boot screen, and recovery wasn't working.
    Cause was unknown.

    But how did your psp brick?
    Shoving something way bigger than the hole you're using is a bad idea.

    Nothing yet, knock on wood. But I always make sure I have a NAND backup of the system just in case so if anything goes wrong, I can always flash it back.

    Yeah, if you do your homework and research, it's often hard to mess it up. :)

    ive never bricked. ive broken stuff, and ive fixed bricks. the closest thing to a brick ive had was dropping my 3ds in the ocean and i turned it on (on accident, i thought it was on and i was turning it off), and it started booting but the nand must have shorted and it showed the screen youd get after a brick or a bad hard mod. The 3ds blod. I have also updated emuNAND to an unsupported version.

    Yeah, however i didn't do real hacking that can cause potential bricking until about 4 years ago. Before that it was all action replay codes and flashcarts

    The connectors kinda broke, and the plastic around too. It wouldn't hold my normal battery anymore for more than a few seconds before shutting off. God if only I knew what scotch tape was back then

    same, some stuff is so simple idk how they can mess it up.

    Step 5: Reflash the nand.bin we backed up from earlier

    Idiot: Ok, I'll copy the homebrew launcher and rename it to nand.bin and flash that

    A brick is technically when it becomes just as useful as a brick.
