    Post your first experience with a brick or a semi-brick.

    I had just figured out how to make topmenu's, and I was helping a friend with making his. He finished his, and wanted me to test his out. So, I took it, and flashed it in. I sat there for a second, and got out of PSP Filer.... Nothing happened. No screen, no noise, nothing. I did a hard reboot, and still, nothing...
    I flipped out!
    I was freaking out, and thought that my friend bricked me, and my PSP was dead. I was all pissed because I had a few custom things of my own at the time(Brittany's sweet coldboot, and icons, waves, font, gameboot...). Near tears, honestly. Pete tells me he is sorry that he semi-bricked me, but I have to go back to 1.5. I had downloaded the 1.5 package, and was all ready to go. I had just thought of an idea. I put PSP Filer into psp>game> recovery/recovery%, and ran it through recovery mode... Saved my PSP life.

    It wouldn't have as scary if I had access to my PSP's flash(0) via USB...

    So that was my single scariest moment about my PSP. But it's a good experience afterwards, and you realize that a semi-brick is nothing big.
    Post yours, and you don't have to make it that long either.

    i goofed on trying to change my theme, but i got it fixed through the recovery, glad i read up on it ahead of time.

    I don't mod much anymore, but I do give good game advice.
