    Im sending my bricked PSP to Sony which was originally a 2.0 which was downgraded to 1.5 then upgraded to 3.40 OE then bricked by trying to use RECOVERY using a dud duo memory stick...

    when i called Sony to send the item back for warranty, the guy asked what happened.

    I told him i was doing an upgrade for the first time with the power connected and the psp just reset and wouldnt turn back on.

    Now, when i send the PSP back, will they know i lied and does it matter? warranty issues?


    thanx in advance.

    you will most likely get a 3.40 SONYS version back

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    thanx for your reply guys!

    I called up Sony again to confirm what firmware i would be getting and they said anything between 2.80 and 3.03 which is sweet. I asked if they would be installing 3.40 and he said anything between 2.80 and 3.03 again!

    lol why would you ask. its obvious they know what you are trying to do. If you have the warranty then it wouldn't matter and they should update it without giving you a hassle.

    hehe, when i called up the 2nd time, i used a fake name but was quite honest in letting him know i was going to play around with the firmware...

    he just said, "Sony doesnt support homebrew but the firmware you will get back will be between 2.80 and 3.03 which will allow users to play most games"

    kewl! <-- (when was the last time you seen someone spell "cool" like this?)
