    My story is I was on 3.03 OE-C, tried to flash the USBMOD thing without patching my MOBO like I was supposed to, OBVIOUS SEMI-BRICK. Luckily I recovered back down to 1.5, but when I updated back to 3.03 OE-C I got a semi-brick doing that too... now I was REALLY scared... I recovered safely to 1.5 AGAIN and then decided to make a new DATA.DXAR. Finally this worked and I was able to save my beautiful shiny blue PSP. :) but I nearly crapped my pants doing this. I prayed soooo hard that I wouldnt have a 200$ paperweight.

    So now that I've shared my stupidity with you... Share yours with me

    Mine was when I was a super noob to the whole 3.02OE or 3.03OE firmware, I was still using DevHook because that's the only thing I knew about ever since I first got my PSP. I was updating to 3.03OE-A and I ended up getting a semi-brick and I was like WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? I was still such a noob and knew very little about the Recovery Menu, luckily there are some helpful people in these forums.
    Nice post.

    Mine was super noob as well it happened waaay back b4 custom firmwares and when dev hook was the thing... i was trying to customize my custom backgrounds(unlike 2.0 u cant have custom back grounds just by selecting "Set as background" you had to flash them as default) So i flashed the picture not knowing it had to be certain demensions. I wound up with a half brick. But alls well now i did the ole wal mart trick With it not to long ago im glad i didnt sell it for parts on ebay :)
    Translation: Blah blah blah blah blah

    There is no such thing as recovery on 1.5. You Phail

    Scribble = Idk, if someone randomly punched in the STOMACH it wouldn't really hurt, especially if it was a girl. I think though, it's because I have lots of stomach muscle and that my stomach would automatically flex.
