    upgrade your firmware? go to psp-hacks.com and look under "downloads" and then "firmware" and select the official sony firmware link..Be advised though, that if you upgrade any higher than 3.50-you lose any ability to play downloaded games or homebrew, etc...But if that is not a concern to you, then you can just use the "network update" icon on your psp menu, or use the UMD game that is requiring the higher firmware to update..

    Thanks for the message ok so i decided to upgrade it to the 3.51 http://www.psp-hacks.com/2007/07/14/psp-351-m33-custom-firmware-released/ but im confused does that mean i need to downgrade first t 1.50 coz i dont understand the first instruction:

    1.If you are under official 1.50 PSP firmware, copy kxploitpatcher and kxploitpatcher% folders from “1.50only/” of this download to your “ms0:/PSP/GAME/” and use it.

    Thats custom firmware, which would require you to first downgrade your psp to version 1.50 firmware so you can then upgrade to that..Are you looking to have it so you can play downloaded games and homebrew, etc.. or are you not into all that?

    Check out this guide here... scroll down to the part where its says "-2.71 PSP (TA-82 or TA-86)"-and click the "show" button-it will have the files that you need shown as links...

    Good Luck!

    @SlayerXz

    Hey man, I'll walk you through the whole downgrading process I have done it for countless people on these forums. And while I often refer to the same guide that dEEz_nUtz refered you to sometimes it is better to have someone to talk you throught the whole process. Alright well from this picture tell me what motherboard you have please...

    Honestly I have never run into a motherboard like yours. But to me it seems logical that since a IC6001 is a TA-79 and IC1003 is a TA-82 then any other combination would be a TA-86. Before we go any further with this pm a user called svtstang and see what he has to say about the issue.

    Yeah, Im now quite sure and don't want to be responsible for bricking your PSP. But once he tells you what motherboard you have I can help you with the downgrading process.

    I know that the TA-82 and TA-86 downgrader are on and the same. But are there more than 3 types of PSP motherboards? This is what I was unsure of and that is the reason I had him ask svtstang. So are there only 3 motherboard types?

    I'm fairly sure that's the only 3. If sony comes out another bricker motherboard I'm sure we would hear about it.

    True. I'll give it a day, if svtstang doesn't answer this guys question then we'll go ahead with the TA-82/TA-86 downgrade. I have a guide alreay to go.

    Okay I am going to give you a complete step-by-step downgrade guide w/ pictures. First format your memory card so that we start off with a clean slate. Okay before beginning make sure your battery is charged to at least 75% and that your charger is plugged in.

    Files needed to downgrade a 2.71 PSP either TA-82 or TA-86...
    TA-082 2.71 Downgrade Files
    Firmware 1.50 Update


    1) Unzip the 2.71 TA-82 downloaded files and copy all files to the root (topmost folder) of the memory stick.
    **NOTE**-If you are unsure of what the "ROOT" of your memorystick is I included the picture below to illustrate.
    [​IMG] Ignore were it says "dont put files here" I made this pic for a different purpose and that is why it says that there.

    2) Rename the file labeled"EBOOT.PBP" to "UPDATE.PBP" (do so without quotes). And copy the file into X:\PSP\GAME\UPDATE\. Were X is your memory card.

    3) Now exit to your PSP's home menu and run HEN-D by going to the photo menu and entering the HEN-D folder.

    4) Go to the GAME menu and and run 1.50enabler

    5) When the program exits back to the XMB run UPDATE X.YZ

    6) When your PSP has finished downgrading press X to restart your PSP.

    7) When you turn your PSP on there will be a blue screen, Press O.

    8) You should now be at firmware 1.5! Congrats :)
