As long as you deffo have the unpatched GTA it MUST HAVE 2.0 Firmware on it. Check this first before doing anything else.

Create a new folder in the PSP/GAME folder called UPDATE. Note the capitals. This should then get you upgraded to the official firmware.

Just browse to the game folder using the PSP then you should see it in there just press X to run. But as before have you deffo got the unpatched GTA LCS disk without his you will be going nowhere.

press down once on the keypad is it ok now? if not are you sure you created a new folder in CAPITALS called "UPDATE" then the real 3.03 firmware needs to go into this folder. The real firmware can be got form the donload section. It is a rar file so will need de-compressing using winrar you should the get a file called EBOOT.PBP this needs to go into this folder. Also you need a realiable memory stick my preference is a good quality 1GB. EDIT

Just checked and the down arrow will not do anything so either you have the wrong file or you have it in the wrong place. Just doing another PSP as I write this so have it in front of me to confirm, it is also a 2.81

3. Select USB Connection from the 'settings' menu in the XMB
4. Open the Drive letter your computer assigns to your PSP (e.g E:\)
5. Open the "PSP" folder, then open the "GAME" folder.
6. Make a folder called "UPDATE" and make sure it is in caps.
7. Copy the firmware update into your "UPDATE" folder on your PSP.
8. Make sure the firmware update file is called "EBOOT.PBP"
9. Close the USB Connection and disconnect your PSP from your computer.
10. Make sure you have a full battery or plug in your PSP into the AC Adaptor.
11. Go to the memory stick under "Game" on your PSP and you should see the PSP firmware update.
12. Highlight the firmware update and press 'start' to start the update.
13. Now follow the on-screen instructions.
14. Once the update has finished, restart your PSP.
15. Now go to Settings > System Settings > System Information and check that the System Software has been updated.
