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.

Tip

Pandora's Ultimate Magic Stick 3.80M33-5


New version of UPMSv3 - universal PSP Unbricker/Downgrader/Upgrader, also known as Pandora's Ultimate Magic Stick, Now work with DC ver4 (Dark_AleX’s), for installing CFw 3.80M33-5 and creating memory stick into a “Ultimate Magic Stick” for use with “Pandora’s battery” (jigkick). Works for both PSP, Slim and/or Fat, and 1 stick for all functions for Unbricker/Downgrader tools. Also available is the “UPMS_v3.pdf Guide” to help you get started and usage.

The Ultimate Pandora’s Magic Stick is the simple solution to easily accomplish any of the following:
  • Recover any bricked PSP (Fat or Slim) and install sony firmware or CFw M33.
  • Upgrade Fat-Slims PSP to CFw 3.80M33-5, with 1.50 kernel patch-Fat Only.
  • Upgrade Fat-Slims PSP to CFw 3.71 M33-2, with 1.50 kernel patch-2 -Fat Only.
  • Update to 3.71M33-4 are installed to the ‘GAME’ folder from the XMB.
  • Downgrade Fat PSP to Fw 1.50.
  • Upgrade Fat PSP straight to CFw 3.52M33 from Extended Boot Menu then install update 3.52 M33-4 from XMB, without need to downgrade to 1.50.
  • Boot up PSP using Ultimate Loader with support for choosing which Pandora’s you reach V1, V3 or V4.
  • Boot up PSP to XMB with UPMS inserted-Fat Only.
  • Boot up to a full FW 1.50 from Memory Stick-Fat Only.
  • Use PSP Filer and other tools (If it requires 1.50, can’t for Slims).
Note: This software is free, and comes with no warranty. Despite it has been tested and it has worked, there is some risk with any PSP operation that involves flashing, so please try this at your own risk!.

Only Memory Stick "Pro Duo" are compatible. Memory Stick Duo are not supported. Read more... for installation
