    AFAIK, the recovery menu relies on 1 file for the whole thing, recovery.prx

    why not make it the first file to copy over to the flash0 when performing a upgrade/downgrade? If the newb did pull out the memory stick he could just reboot and press R to access the recovery menu right thus making it 99% brick proof..right?

    Would work...but what if the PSP can't boot the file that says "Holding R while starting the PSP takes the psp to recovery mode."

    It is brick proof just not dick proof, if your gonna be a dick and pull out the mem card, battery or AC cord then you deserve to get bricked. I have done the downgrader oe upgrader thing around 50+ times now for the kids in my hood at $20 a pop (i tried to do it for free but they kept thinking it was a scam to steal there PSPs). I have never once had a brick (knock on wood). So going by the odds alone i would say 0 bricks out of 55 tries makes the whole process a pretty safe bet when done right.

    I doubt the devs are stupid.
    If this was plausible, it would've been done already.

    To help explain, no, the recovery menu does NOT rely on just one file, it relies on the entire 1.50 subset.

    Plus, if the IPL gets stuffed, NOTHING will boot.


    My tip: leave it to the pros :)

    yeah it depends more on the bootstrap and the ipl than the recovery prx itself :)
