    Yes they can! chickHEN has, say a 20% chance of a brick when using it for, like PSP home brew that dodgy and flashing files with result in a brick. I have heard that CFWEnabler has more chance of a brick, so say it has a 60% chance of a brick. And also using CFWEnabler with chickHEN = 100% chance of a brick, so be careful. My friend has been using the GEN cfw for chickHEN on his psp3k and has had no issues so I think chickHEN and the GEN cfw for it is your best bet when it come to NOT bricking.

    why are you telling him lies? the only one i have heard bricked the psp was because he didn't read how to use it.

    if you are using it right, the bricking chance is below 0%.

    yes, there is a slight 0.0001% chance of a brick as there is with simply updating official firmware from Sony. Unless u do something dumb such as remove the power/battery in the middle of the flash...

    bricks are coming from NOOBS trying to perminatly flash CF to the unhackable motherboards even through in bright red capital letters everywhere it says not to....

    as for HEN and CFW, they are perfectly safe, pspNOOBmod, dont give out false info if u dont have any hard evidence to back it up.
