I never use theme PSP

so do you keep on getting BSOD

Have you tried updating

December 24th, 2006, 15:00
cant update the xmb id disabled that is my problem

December 24th, 2006, 15:05
There is nothing you could do.

Either take it back to the shop


Send to Sony

Have you got a PSP or know anyone else with a PSP. Because you can get 3.02OE and get the recovery mode onto your MS and fix it with that. Even better if you have a Memory Card Reader you could just put the recovery folder on your MS yourself.

What happens when you click O ?

December 24th, 2006, 19:08
It restores settings

December 24th, 2006, 19:09
i know that but i was asking the dude because if you press O it should take you back to the xmb after reboot so what happens after you click O

December 24th, 2006, 19:58
it's starts to reboot and then goes back to the BSOD and it keeps trying to reload and it keeps going to the BSOD if i put in a 1.50 umd game it will load up and play just fine when i quit the game it's back to the BSOD i googled how to unbrick my psp iand read i can open it up and make the usb go straight to the flash and fix it from my pc

December 24th, 2006, 20:31

Do a full hard reset on the PSP.And do you have the recovery folder installed.

Then load recovery menu
