    What is the difference between a full-bricked PSP and a half-bricked PSP?

    half bricking is where you flash a corrupt gameboot or something. doing that stops you from doing anything but looking at pics, surfing the web, and listening to music/watchin videos. you wont even be able to update to fix it.
    you can also half brick by flashing a bad topmenu_plugin.rco . doing this prevents you from being able to access your XMB. once again you cant update because you need to be able to launch the update from the XMB.
    a full brick is when the psp wont turn on. period. this can happen by flashing a bad opening_plugin.rco

    With the custom firmware (highly reccommended) these common problems can be avoided since it supports recovery mode but you will loose all the things you flashed in the first place XD. But it will save your $250 PSP, and save you from having a $250 paper weight.
    1 God 1 King is truly a king =D He saved me from leaving the scene, but kindly donating his PSP to me. Anybody who talks to him on these forums, is not worthy of his kindness =P THANK YOU 1 GOD 1 KING!!!!
