    I was trying to change the xmb waves in the recovery mode and did. I was then going to change the background but didn't get a chance so turned my psp off and then when i tried to turn it back on it freezes at the sony computer entertainment logo. HELP! Can still get to recovery mode.

    If you can still get to the recovery menu then use it to run the recovery program. You'll have to activate the USB connection through there aswell.

    Here is the link to the program, it should have full instructions but i've not used it personally.

    See the readme:

    Painless and easy:
    Copy the RECOVERY folder from the archive to /PSP/GAME/ on your
    memstick, so that you get a /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/ folder containing the
    apps EBOOT on your stick.
    Now copy the official Sony 3.71, 4.01 and/or 5.00 Update EBOOT, renamed
    as 371.PBP (401.PBP, 500.PBP), into the RECOVERY folder as well, or into the
    memsticks root folder.

    The Recovery Flasher will first look for the updater .PBPs in it's
    own folder, if it doesn't find them there, it'll look at the
    memsticks root folder and use the files from there if they exist.
    That eay you can use already existing .PBPs you have (for DDC or
    whatever) for the Recovery Flasher as well.

    *** NOTE ***
    The Recovery Flasher MUST be installed in /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY!
    Do not rename it's folder or it will fail loading!
    If you have other apps you like to use from the recovery menu, you
    can do so with Recovery Flasher's option "Launch another app" (see
    below)

    Done :-)


    Usage
    ========================================

    After launching the app, either from the recovery menu or via the XMB
    you'll eventually get into the mainmenu.

    Everything should be pretty selfexplanatory, you can flash a new
    firmware, make a complete flash0 to flash2 backup or restore certain
    things from your backup.

    The option "Launch another app" will give you a list of the games/apps
    you have in /PSP/GAME on your memstick.
    You can then choose one and run it directely from Recovery Flasher.
    Usefull to use some other apps on semibricks when you can't use the
    XMB to launch them, or for those people who already have a preffered
    app they use from the recovery menu but want to install the Flasher
    as well.
    As stated you'lll need the official Sony Firmwares, which you can get here:

    Did you do it all as described above? You put everything in the correct place on your memory stick then ran the recovery program from the recovery menu?

    Hmm i can't help any further then, i've never used the program, hopefully someone who has can help. I know it's possible to use on 5.00 though.

    For me I had to run it from the xmb menu, which I don't think that you have access to.

    Edit: Make sure that you have the newest version, if not here's the link.
