    hi my friend.
    ok 1st thing u need is a UMD of GTA:LCS unpatched version.u can see if it's unpatched by simply checking if the upgrade it has is to 2.00 fw.u can see that by going to the psp home menu_>game.there it is.
    once u get that unpatched UMD u must download the 3.03 updater bcz there's no 2.82 downgrader.u can download it from here : http://www.psp-hacks.com/category/53
    once ur psp is 3.03 umust downgrade to 1.5.u can download the downdater from here: http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/1034

    to upgrade u have to create a folder called UPDATE into ms:pSP:GAME

    TO DOWNGRADE TO 1.5 JUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PROGRAMM U DOWNLOADED
    as soon as u have 1.5 fw u can download a devhook to run ur iso or go to CUSTOM fw 3.10oe-a to play ur iso.
    to get what u need go here: http://www.psp-hacks.com/downloads.php
    i'm srry bt i really g2g.if some1 else can pzl help him!ty.or else i'll help u tomorrow.i have to go to church

    Ok ive been reading some other forums and that seems the simplist way of doing it. The only thing is i don't know anyone with a version of GTA:LCS that is unpatched. Ive got one here but ive been told the only way you can do it is if you have got one that is 2.00 not 2.60, 2.60 is the patched version yes. Is there no other way to do it.

    Please Help Me I'm desperate ive been on this trying to sort it since 7a.m GMT lol.

    Thank You

    try renting a copy...the best way to tell without actually having to purchase/rent is to look at the back of the case if it says copyright 2005 its unpatched if it says copyright 2006 its patched. if you find the copyright 2005 its safe to purchase/rent.

    Any local video store that rents games will most likely have a copy... like rogers video or blockbuster

    theres a link in my signature to get from 1.5 to 3.03 oe-c

    right now ive got all the files etc that i need but the instructions ive been given are pretty vauge. How do i upgrade the firmware when i have got the GTA:LCS disc. Can you give me a blow by blow guide please. And how do i know that v3.03oe-c firmware will be compatible on my psp all i know is that on the bottom of it is a sticker with a kind of barcode on it that at the end says ''psp 1003''.

    Thanks Again
    Zac

    in my signature follow these tutorials...

    1.Downgrade from 3.03 to 1.5Here
    2.Need to upgrade from 1.5 to 3.03 oe-c?Here

    The downgrade is what you use the gta lcs with. Make sure it is the unpatched 2.00 version of gta lcs. before proceeding.
    The tutorial is pretty straight forward has a few pictures in there as well.

    Once you get to step 2, its a winstaller so the only work youll have to do is place the files in your psp and the program does the rest for you.

    ok thanks excellent. Just a few more questions my PSP has no number in the UMD disc tray does this mean the firmware will be incompatible or not. And once the firmware is on the PSP how do i play my games. Will i just have to drag and drop them onto my memory card and they will work or do i need an additional program like this devhook ive been reading about.

    Thanks
    Zac

    yes.....after you turn your psp all the way off; restart it while holding down the R trigger, recovery console should come up...

    go under configuration, and disable the noUMD option....Also make sure that you have the 1.50 kernel setting enabled....... your ISOs n CSOs should work perfectly now..


    give er a go
