    Yay at 10:30PM tonight I officialy bricked my friend's PSP. I am always very careful with these procedures of upgrading and downgrading but I messed up i guess :(. He had a 2.70 PSP so I updated him to 2.80 and downloaded this 2.80 EASY downgrader found on this site actually. So, I downloaded it, un-rared it. WTF? It's in german? Why would they have some in german here? ...Eh whatever, I ran the .exe , told it to put everything in the root dir of the PSP. Afterwards I opened up the photo menu, getting into the noobz eloader thing. I then clicked downdater in the menu and then pressed O to commence downgrading.

    Right after I pressed O an error appeared,
    error file sco(something) not found (<= i think) in flash 0
    Shutdown PSP

    In my mind I was like, phew, at least the program knew i was missing something and didn't brick the PSP. So, i turned off the PSP, turned it back on....

    No screen, just the green light, then the PSP shuts off...

    "F*** I just bricked his PSP didn't I"

    Oh well, I will just give him mine with 3.10 OE-A on it, I only used it as a big MP3 player anyways :(:(:(

    WTF did I do wrong? I downloaded it from the AIO area in the download => downgraders area

    edit: I used this http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/1040

    And no it isnt a TA-0234203984 whatever motherboard, i checked

    First of all you should have found one with a language you could read. Second of all you shouldn't give him yours for the simple fact that downgrading is a risk and bricks may occur.

    I really only saw that one downgrader on the website at the time, but now i do see more... Foolish me. But now that I look at videos of other bricks, when the person turns their PSP on, the backlight of the PSP turns on, but just no picture. This PSP's vbacklight doesn't turn on, it is purely black. But I guess it is just a different brick?

    Hit the backlight button and see if that works. Hit it a few times.

    Ah, that is a good idea!

    Sadly though, nothing happened after pressing it after turning it on. It shuts itself off anyways after about 10 seconds of being on... Now I should actually buy an MP3 player lol. Any suggestions? iPods arn't for me, and if this is too off topic then ignore my MP3 wanting.:mrgreen:

    Well A) you should have used the 2.71 downgrader. Much easier less bricks
    B)The 2.80 downgrader (if you found the english version) says not to use Eloader because it will brick. It says to use Zloader.
    If you want a new psp just use the walmart trick. Buy a new one put the broken one in the box and take it back and get your money back.

    Zunes would rule if they weren't so bulk. Iriver is the best imo.

    I really hate carrying around a huge bulky MP3 player in my pocket, I think the Iriver is a good option.
