    i have official 2.81 firmware on my psp, as is stated in system info. i simply wanted to upgrade to 3.30 so i can view full resolution videos that i convert. i've downloaded 4 different copies of 3.30 from different sources. each time, i place them in the psp/game/update folder, then try to update. however, the psp tells me each time that it is 2.60 firmware and there is no need to update. so i go to sony site and download 3.50 firmware and try to update. again, the psp is telling me it's 2.60 firmware and i don't need to update. ???

    how exactly are you trying to update? i understand youv put the update in the folder and so on, but what are you clicking on in the xmb menu?
    also upgrading will make your psp homebrew/iso less.

    oh i was going to the wrong place to update. problem solved. well i'm upgrading from 2.81 to 3.30 because i'm tired of waiting for a downgrader that is never going to be released, and it's next to impossible to find a gta:lcs unpatched. sources keep saying a downgrader, if it EVER comes out, won't be released until around the end of the year. i'm not going to wait that long just to be able to convert and watch full resolution video. as far as games, i always hear about game incompatibilities with these isos and such, and using custom firmware. not to mention there are so few truly good psp games, it won't cost much to just buy them. and the only other thing i want to use my psp for is reading text files. i guess that's really the only good reason for me to not upgrade to official firmware.

    actually i haven't upgraded yet because i've been hearing about video problems when trying to convert videos to full resolution. some of them do not play if they aren't encoded as 'main profile' avc or something like that.
    is ebay the only place i'm going to find gta? because the gamestops and eb games all around here are banned from even selling it to people.
