    My goal here is to update to a more current CFW.

    The problem:
    I've got the 3.71 33-2 CFW on my PSP Slim, and i've had it for a while now. Every time i go to update the CFW to anything (i've tried 3.80 3.90 and 4.01 33) my psp bricks, i've done this about 4 or 5 times so far and it never fails to brick.

    What happens is: Everything goes according to plan untill the update percentage timeline comes up, it usually gets rather far, like 80/90 percent ranges, and freezes. i've let it sit for hours and it just stops. I can tell its frozen because the moving background the psp normall has just stops completely and i have no choice but to shut down the psp.

    I've got a magic mem stick and pandora battery so i can unbrick/unstick my current situations so im not scared to try anything and im not slow at learning what to do, just asking if anyone knows what might be wrong and what i can do to fix this problem.

    Resources:
    PSP Slim
    Several memory sticks
    Several batteries (pandora, regular)
    Several computers (xp, vista)

    Apologies for posting in wrong sections or whatever, this is the closest i can find to posting a problem like this at first glance.

    Becuase You Might Try Re-partitioning Your IPL Tables
