Hi, I just need a simple answer, I have searched long and hard but I just can't find the answer, here my question. I plan to buy a PSP (second one) from Hong Kong (I'm going there in 3 weeks time) and the last time I brought one it had a TA-082 motherboard with 2.71 firmware. I don't know what firmware they come with now but I'm almost certain it will have a TA-082 MB. A friend of mine just came back from HK with a PSP and his PSP is also a TA-082 but someone updated it to 3.10 oe-a. He doesn't know much so I couldn't ask him about this stuff. I sure that updating to 3.10 oe-a won't brick the TA-082 PSP but what I need to know is can I just update it straight to 3.10 oe-a firmware or do I need to downgrade to something first (as I've read on other forums) and can I use these instructions if the case was true? So, can I go straight to 3.10 oe-a from whatever firmware it has? Any help would be much appreciated!
