    I still dont get it~
    how would a person brick their psp by flashing bad bootsound with all the precautions that's available?

    From the way i see it,
    If i want to change bootsounds, gameboot, fonts

    The steps ill take would be;
    1st) test in devhook

    if its working
    2nd) install custom firmware

    3rd) flash the psp

    and then that's it~
    theroetically, if it works on devhook, there shouldnt be any reason that it shouldnt work in the psp 1.5 right?
    UNLESS it doesnt? then there's a reason to brick~

    But still, how do people brick their psp by flashing?
    is it because they're simply too lazy to test it in devhook and just flash immediately?

    everyone here will tell you to test everything you can in devhook before you flash it, but there's always the dumbasses. there was one guy a few months ago who tried to change his bootsound by renaming an .mp3 to "opening_plugin.rco" and flashing it. instant brick. dumbass...

    I bricked mine because I had the devhook files flashed into my PSP.. I went to test the fonts in Devhook and they somehow ended up in the 1.5 xmb. I did not use xflash or anything else. But the devhook files must have conflicted with the 1.5 files. i had cfw so i was able to recover but thats one way to brick with taking precautions. so the moral of the story is dont flash those devhook files into your psp. it will conflict!

    hmmm~
    makes me even more nervous about flashing my 1.5

    i think im just gonna stick with flashing my 2.71 devhook
    prob just use cfw to boot straight into 2.71 instead~
    safer that way

    Totally agree, with those precautions you should be brick free. Only other thing i can think of is you've downgraded from about 2.00 then you should upgrade to 2.0 and back down to 1.5 with MPH's downgrader so you have a clean 1.5 to flash with
