    One of my mates bricked his PSP but he said he found a service which unbricks PSPs. I told him it wasn't possible without modchipping, but he's thinking of giving it a go. I think that it's a load of B.S and probably just a scam to get his PSP.....opinions??

    They certenly put an new Motherboard in the PSP it's the only way to unbrick without a modchip.
    I don't know how much a new MoBo costs but 38,32€ seems to be ok for a new MoBo an the installation

    I don't have access to Ebay right here but take a look there to see how much a new MoBo costs. I don't think that it is that expensive

    if the, "unbricking" DOESN'T involve the modchip, then it's pure bullshit.

    I wouldn't use that site.
    But I think you should email this guy: JARULES615@aol.com
    He unbricks psps and on ebay (thewanderer316) he has 99.8% positive feedback.
    You can also order the part you need, and you repair it.
    Nobody cares about your PSP\'s firmware history.

    Well what they do is:

    Open your PSP, then take out the bricked Motherboard, then install a new one.

    You need to be careful cos one small mistake and the PSP could easily die (you cant repair it)

    But since he has a 99.8% Good feedback, I would say go for it :mrgreenthumbsup:

    "all version of PSP without changing and damaging (we do not install any kind of mod chip to unbrick) any hardware, such as motherboard for TA-079 / TA-081 / TA-082 / TA-086 " (taken from their site)

    So BULLSHIT
