    I tried to make this thread in "Tutorials" but that's just for seniors :( I would not be unhappy if someone moves it thou.

    ===========What's a Brick?===========

    A brick is not a virus, as you may think. A Brick is a fatal error in your PSP flash0 drive.
    When you brick your PSP, you can still start it up, it does not affect the power. But when you do, the screen is just black and will stay so for a million years :P

    =========How do i get a Brick?=========

    If you seriously want to get a brick because of boredom, curiosity and/or dumbness, it's easy.
    The only thing that can give a brick is a change in the flash, as mentioned below, that requires a custom firmware. Or you can download some home-brew/firmware that destroys it for you. Remember: A brick is not a funny thing! (except if the PSP is your brothers ;)).

    ========I got a brick! Now what?========

    If you encounter a brick, you better hope you have a custom firmware that haves a recovery menu. This little guide is for you ho have Dark_alex Custom Firmware, i have 3.03 OE-C.

    1. Open up the recovery menu (Hold down R when you start your PSP)

    2. A blue screen now shows, oooh letters :-P.

    3. You can do following:

    * Either press the Toggle USB and put in the recovery files (this will downgrade your PSP to 1.50 again) and then start it using the Run Command at /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP (you must have 75% battery or more to continue). Look at the rest on http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=58272.

    * Or you can press the "Advanced ->" and click "Toggle USB (flash0)" and try to replace the corrupt file.


    That's about it! If i forgot something please notify me :)

    Oh, and sorry for the spelling, i'm sweed.


    EDIT: Fixed link on Recovery notes
