Starting from Recovery Mode


Active Member

I've got custom firmware 3-40.

I can only get my PSP to startup correctly when using the recovery mode, (L+R Shoulder buttons pressed down on startup).

When I turn It on normally, It just seems to give me a grey screen, has anyone any Ideas on how I can restore It, so that It starts working normally, without going Into recovery mode.

Thanks for advice.

Unfortunately the problem still remains that when I turn my PSP normally, It's just a blank screen, but when I turn It on from Recovery mode It works, any advice.

Should the recovery mode have specific settings so that It goes to the Sony splash screen ???

Semi Bricked ???

Anything I can do about that ???, I did flash firmware to 3.40 oe-a yesterday, but that's made no difference
It's semi bricked, you'll need to place a working update eboot (or if that fails, the official 1.50 eboot) into your recovery folder and run it from the recovery menu.
Yes mate.
