    This tutorial is only for Ta-082 or Ta-086 3.03 downgrading to firmware 1.5.
    Use this at your own risk. Its always possible to break your psp.
    Special thanks to Chilly Willy for taking the time to code this :)

    To verify you have a Ta-082 or Ta-086 see the picture below.

    Donot power off During downgrade!

    Donot use fake memory cards to downgrade or upgrade see link below to identify fakes.


    Note: If at some point your screen goes black for more then a few seconds Hit the brightness key gently a few times. Be careful not to bump the power or other buttons. In some cases the brightness goes to off.


    * Original GTA LCS (any region), which should have the 2.00 update on the disc.

    1. Before you start, format your memory stick and reset your default settings.
    A. Format MS by going to System , Format Memory Stick. press X
    B. Push down to restore Factory Settings

    2.Create a USB connection between your PSP and computer.

    3. A. Download the official Sony 1.50 eboot and rename it to UPDATE.PBP

    B. And put it in the MSroot/PSP/GAME/UPDATE folder of this download with the name of UPDATE.PBP DO NOT OVERWRITE PSP/GAME/UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP! Doing so will brick.
    official Sony 1.5 eboot ** http://www.psp-hacks.com/category/43

    4.Copy the contents of the MS_root folder to your memory stick root, click yes to overwrite. Do not put the readme on the psp.

    5. Load GTA LCS

    6. It should get to loading savegame, then the screen will clear to black and fill with a light blue color, then the PSP will reset itself.

    7. Check that HEN is running by going to system settings, then to "System Information" and it should show up as system version 303 HEN.
    If it is showing up as 303HEN then go to the memory stick and run the update.

    8. If you have an unpatched TA-082 or higher motherboard, you will be prompted to allow the downgrader to patch your motherboard so it can Be safely downgraded. The downgrader will not let you proceed without patching, if your motherboard requires it.

    9. Before the downgrader does anything to your PSP it will ask for you to agree to what it is doing, if you no longer want to continue press the Right Shoulder Button (R-TRIGGER).

    10. Once you have agreed to start the downgrade do not unplug the PSP, or try and restart it.

    11. Once finished the PSP will ask you to press X, and reset itself.

    12. If it comes up saying that the settings are corrupt, press X to continue, this will mean you will need to re-enter the settings for network connections into your PSP.

    All done now If everything went well you should now have a brand new 1.50!

    I've downgraded but my memory stick is too small to hold the 1.50 and the 3.03 updates at the same time. Is there anyway to upgrade to an oe with a 32mb memory

    I live in Ireland and we don't have best buys over here + a new mem card costs around 50 euro.

    I was all set to buy it and it said it does not deliver goods from the video game category to Ireland. I guess it's just not meant to happen
