    As you may know. GTA:LCS requires 2.0+ firmware to run. Firmware changers and umd launchers do not work. Anyway, I purchased this game at launch and I noticed that it requires 2.0. So I thought to myself thats fine, I'll just downgrade whenever I want to use homebrew. So I decided to upgrade. I used the upgrade on the UMD. Update finishes, a message says press X to restart. PSP turns off. Certainly taking it's time restarting. I wait at least 5 minutes. PSP doesn't restart. I'm like..ok... I know it had power the whole time because the AC was plugged in the whole time and the LED was orange. There were no power outages. I take it off the AC adaptor. Flip on the power switch. LED turns green....nothing on the screen...BRICK!!!!! :eek: :cry: F U C K !!!!! So I am pretty much fucked now. I decided to create a username on here and warn you guys about this. I hope no one suffers the same fate as I did. Now my options are:
    1. Get it repaired to 2.5.
    2. Buy a new one thats 2.0 and below.
    Unfortunately, I can not afford option #2 right now, so I am forced to leave the homebrew scene. It was a great ride while it lasted. Had a lot of fun. I will pray every night for a 2.5 downgrader, but as of now, us bricked PSP guys are fucked. Thanks for listening guys. And remember. Say no to upgrading.

    That's what I figured... so I wouldn't expect a power outage to have any effect on updating... You know?... it will only update when it is charged to 3 bars also and when you are done the PSP isn't fully drained... maybe that feature is there as a net in case the power DOES go out...

    If you request a firmware they know what you are going to do with it and update it.
