Hi, I am brand new to the psp scene so please excuse my lack of knowledge about psp. my son has one of these systems and im looking at putting games onto the memory system. The psp has firmware version 2.50 installed, there seems to be so many different ways but what is the best way to go with it. thanks! :Cheers:

Grab one of the Dark_Alex downgraders mate.

Sites like psp-hacks.net have everything you could possibly ever want.

You dont need the GTA disc any more that was an old fashioned way of hacking it, there are new all in one easy install packages which are much easier.

it doesnt matter which way u do it as long as u do it safely
without bricking it,and the 3.10 firmware is the dogs bullocks i think we can all

3.03 downgrader is not perfect yet. It leaves file remenants in the flash which will brick a PSP if you try and upgrade again to an OFFICIAL firmware.

so i would go the other way but saying that i have done the 3.03 downgrader a few times with no probs,,,so the choice is up to you

1. Upgrade to 2.71 official firmware.
2. Run Dark_Alex Generic 2.71 dowgrader (this takes u to 1.50)
3. Install any firware u want or leave it at 1.50

thanks everybody for your replies, i'll have another read around on the forum and then decide which route to go. basicly all i want to do is be able to download a few games ;.) so my son can play them, not too bothered about updating to the latest official firmware unless i really need too in the future. thanks for all your replies.

just create it yourself.

Once you get to 2.71 you could use this file.

It takes you through the downgrade step by step to 1.50. Just run it from your computer and follow the instructions
