    Hello I have a TA-082 PSP 3.01. IM trying to get to 3.03 0e C. Ive read the guides and they all say that you must upgrade to 3.03 first, then downgrade to 1.50 and then to 3.03 oe-C. Ive downloaded the 3.03 and 1.50 updates and the 3.03 downgrader as specified in the guide. The guide then says to put the 3.03 (EBOOT.PBP) file in /PSP/GAME/UPDATE/. I guess my first question would be do I rename the 3.03 file to EBOOT.PBP or do I leave it the way it is. Ive done both, changed it and left it alone and both tries did not work, I would just like to know if Im suppose to or not. Secondly I did not have a file named UPDATE in the GAME folder I had to create it, so it looked like this /PSP/Game. Did anyone else have this problem? Thirdly, after I created the UPDATE folder and put the 3.03 file there, on the PSP main menu I went to games and to the memory card to load the file like the guide says. When I try to load it it says file is corrupt!!! I have downloaded the 3.03 update file many times from several different sources because I thought maybe I had a bad file but they cant all be bad. Im usually pretty good at these sort of things but this one has me scratching my head. Please someone help !!! P.S. Sorry this is so long.

    yes leave the 3.03 update as EBOOT.PBP and place in x/PSP/GAME/UPDATE then run the update

    for ALL information regarding downgrading look here http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/about17935.html

    just follow all instructions carefully and dont do anything stupid like turn off psp, take out battery blah blah blah

    once downgraded use hexitnow's winstaller for OE-C and u should be good to go ;)

    Okay I put the 3.03 update (named EBOOT.PBP) into /PSP/GAME/UPDATE/ but every time I try to load it it says the file is corrupt.So Im still stuck on 3.01. I do have to upgrade to 3.03 first before I can downgrade right? Ive downloaded the 3.03 update file many times and they all say that they are corrupt, am I doing something wrong?

    I figured it out!!! You have to rename the 3.03 file to EBOOT not EBOOT.PBP otherwise it will say corrupted file.

    Must have had a brainfart from all this reading and overlooked it. Its funny that the problem is usually the most simplest thing. Thanks
