    303 HEN Noobz Downgrader Guide
    ------------------------------

    Here is a guide for downgrading any current PSP hardware version
    (TA-079 - TA-086) from firmware 3.10-3.50 to 1.50.

    VERY IMPORTANT:
    If you have a TA082+ motherboard and you downgrade to 1.50,
    currently you will be unable to upgrade to 3.30+ Sony firmware.
    This is due to Sony blocking updates when the PSP has been
    modified to run 1.50. There will be an application released
    later which will allow users to revert the changes. If you
    are using a TA082 motherboard then I would suggest just using
    1.50 or OE until an application is released.

    IMPORTANT:
    The Noobz team is strongly against piracy, and we're not just
    saying that to cover our butts. When you pirate games, you're
    removing the incentive for game and console makers to continue
    making fun things for us to play with. We are releasing this
    downgrader because we believe that using your PSP to its full
    potential and being able to customize it and run homebrew code
    is a fair use right that should be available to everyone.
    Please purchase games that you intend to play. Thanks!

    Requirements
    ------------
    In order to downgrade a 3.50 PSP you will need the following:

    - Lumines (EU or US version only currently)

    - 3.50 Downgrader (this package)
    http://www.noobz.eu/joomla/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=88888895&func=fileinfo&id=12

    - 1.50 Update
    http://dl.qj.net/PSP-Firmware-1.50-File-(EBOOT)-North-America-PSP/pg/12/fid/163/catid/163

    - 3.50 Update if you are on firmware 3.10-3.40
    http://dl.qj.net/PSP-Firmware-3.50-(North-America)-PSP/pg/12/fid/13840/catid/163

    ******************************************************************
    * WARNING, ANY DOWNGRADER HAS A CHANCE OF BRICKING A PSP. WHEN A *
    * PSP IS BRICKED YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE IT ANYMORE. WE HAVE *
    * DONE A LOT TO TRY AND MINIMISE THE RISK, BUT THERE IS ALWAYS *
    * SOME LEVEL OF RISK WHICH YOU MUST ACCEPT IF YOU WANT TO *
    * DOWNGRADE *
    ******************************************************************

    Instructions
    ------------
    Here are the steps to downgrade any 3.50 PSP to 1.50:

    1 - If you have a 3.50 PSP skip to step 6

    2 - Download 3.50 update from here:
    http://dl.qj.net/PSP-Firmware-3.50-(North-America)-PSP/pg/12/fid/13840/catid/163

    3 - Unzip and place the file in <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE

    4 - On the PSP, run the 3.50 update from the memory stick under the Game menu.

    5 - Delete <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE

    6 - Copy the contents of the folder MS_ROOT from the 3.50 downgrader ZIP to
    the memory stick

    7 - Unzip the 1.50 update to a temporary folder. Rename the EBOOT.PBP to
    UPDATE.PBP and copy it to <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE/ . DO NOT
    OVERWRITE PSP/GAME/UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP!

    8 - Load Lumines and press x to start the game

    9 - The screen will clear to black and fill with a light blue colour, then
    the PSP will reset itself

    10 - Check that HEN is running by going to system settings, then to
    "System Information" and it should show up as system version
    350 HEN

    11 - If it is showing up as HEN then go to the memory stick and
    run the x.yz update

    12 - 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.

    13 - 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).

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

    15 - Once finished the PSP will ask you to press X, and reset itself

    16 - 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, otherwise go to
    step 18

    17 - Load the included NetConfigBackup application in your PSP, and select to
    restore, this will take the backup that was done of the network config
    that was done automatically during the downgrade.

    18 - All done now :) Hopefully you now have a 1.50 PSP. Enjoy it responsibly.


    Troubleshooting
    ---------------
    - If when trying to restore the network config using netconf backup you
    find that it gives you an error on the downgraded 1.50 PSP, try adding
    a temporary network config, then deleting it and run the netconf backup
    again.
