For psp what does bricked mean


"Brick" means corrupting your Firmware, the system that makes your PSP run. Bricking can be caused by either "interrupted update of firmware" or attempt to install "PSP Hacks" also known as Jailbreaks or Custom Firmware (CFW).
Some PSP Models can be revived when bricked by using a system called "Recovery Menu" which becomes available when the PSP was running a CFW before it bricked. Another way of unbricking a PSP including those that runs Original Firmware is using Pandora Battery and a Magic Memory Stick.
However, there are PSP MOdels that cannot be unbricked. These are the PSP 2000 Slim that have the Motherboard TA088v3 and other higher end. The worst PSP Motherboard is the TA088v3 because once bricked, PSP becomes a lovely paperweight without game functions and possibility to be revived.

"Hack your PSP" guide




1.)Here are some termins i will use:
OFW-Original firmware,this is your system software
CFW-Custom Firmware,Modified firmware
HEN-Homebrew(home-made)enabler,this is much like a CFW without some features and its not permanent this means its gone after a hard reboot(taking out the battery or completly shutting down the system)
XMB-CrossMediaBar your PSP menus
PANDORA battery-a modified battery that allows you to put your PSP in service mode and do wathever you want with it its used for unbricking,downgrading and installing CFW.
BRICK-Its when you mess with your system software and damage it,its called flashing,its called a BRICK since your PSP becomes useless as a brick.
2.)PSP 1000 (FAT/PHAT)
This is wath it looks like:
maxim615_0.jpg
ANY PSP 1000 is hackble
Ways of hacking:
1.You can use a Pandora Battery that you have to buy
*how to use a Pandora Battery:after you buy a Pandora and a MMS(Magic Memory Stick) insert them in your PSP and you shoud see a menu with CFW you have on your MMS.
2.)CFW or HENs depending on your firmware you can use CFW or HEN without pandora.
PSP 2000 with non V3 MOTHERBOARDS:SAME as PSP 1000
maxim615_1.jpg
PSP 2000v3/3000/Go:

maxim615_2.jpg3000

maxim615_3.jpgGo

1.)On the 2000 and 03g 3000 you can have LightCFW or HEN
on 4g 3000 and GO you can have only HENs
CFWs:5.03 GEN,6.35 PRO-B,5.50 GEN
HENs:6.20 TN HEN
