    dude, are you talking to yourself?

    you need to download the downgrade for 3.50.

    then the update for 1.5

    then the update for 3.40 OE-A

    then you need to extract all of them. and start on the downgrade.

    there is a readME-HOWTO file in the extract. you need to follow that VERY CAREFULLY.

    then after you do everything it tells you, you should be downgraded.

    in the donwgrade, you used the 1.5 UPDate, so skip that.

    then goto the 3.40 OE and follow the README-HOWTO.

    thats it. you just need to follow instructions carefully. and you need to be patient while doing it.


    have fun :)


    ......but im still a newb. lol

    wayyyyyyyyy to much on the multiposting.

    your sitting at 3.50 firmware correct?

    you've downloaded and followed all instructions in the readme for the 3.50 downgrader?

    okay do these steps.

    1.Copy the contents of the folder MS_ROOT from the 3.50 downgrader ZIP to the memory stick

    2. Take Eboot_150.pbp , rename it to UPDATE.pbp and place it here (x being your memory stick) X:\PSP\GAME\UPDATE\ (make sure you don't overwrite the file already in there called EBOOT.pbp)

    3. you should be able to pick up @ step 8 in the downgrader's included instructions.

    if u still have issues post back (u were trying to do something not in the isntructions) so in simple terms, just open UPDATE_150.zip and pull out the eboot and continue on like i've stated above....

    i now got 3.30 oe-c but i dont get how for one... how to put videos on it... everybodys talking about.. making an ISO folder in the root of you rmemory stick.. does that mean i have to make a folder next to the psp folder and named it MS_ROOT... then put an ISO folder in there... then put emulators or games in there???? that also goes for videos.... i heard that people do that to insert videos on the psp but instead of MS_ROOT it is MP_ROOT.. is that right anyone?
    p.s. sorry for having you guys keep repeating these steps if you do... but im excited from 3.03oe-c... it took me 5 hours to get it going... and now its taking a lot more hours trying to figure out the right steps for everything.. so get back...whenever

    Wow, thats some blog entry you have there! Well thats 4 hours and 50-plus minutes of your life you wont be getting back! It takes less than ten minutes to downgrade and subsequently upgrade to custom firmware.

    1)Format your memory stick RIGHT NOW! (It creates the correct folders for you)
    2)Put your "backup" games in the ISO folder in the root of your memory stick.
    3)MP4 videos go in the VIDEO folder
    4)Music mp3, etc..go in the MUSIC folder

    Any other questions-use the search function at the top of the page.

    yes... you NEED the lumines game... the downgrade 350 package.. the 1.50 and 3.50 update....you want to downgrade to 2.81 FROMMM 3.03 or 3.50???? why would you want to do that.. what you really want to do is get access to homebrew and custom firmware. 3.03oec...3.10oea..... or 3.40 oea.. top notch..

    Format your memory stick now that you have the OE firmware, I meant that I already have 3.40 OE, i have 2 friends that have 2 psps, 1 is 2.81 and the other one is 3.50, I know the 3.50 needs to be done with the Lumines game (DeViNRL would you sell me yours?) and the other one, what should be the best way to go, upgrade it to 3.03 and then downgrade or upgrade to 3.50 and then downgrade? Let me know, thanks in advance.

    @DEVINRL- In your system settings menu-there should be a "reset default settings" option, try that, then format your memory stick..Because you shouldnt have to create any folders at all..If that doesnt solve your issue, then consider upgrading to 3.40OE which is the most recent custom FW...And one you would be more accustomed to.

    -Backups are what we refer to games that have been downloaded from the internet-Its only considered a backup if you actually own the game itself..otherwise you are a pirate.

    @drakex-probably best to downgrade from 3.03 in your case-that can be found here.
    Of course you would need the unpatched GTA:LCS to do this though.
