    Hey guys,

    I have a PAL 3.03 PSP. I have GTA Liberty City Stories with the 2.0 firmware upgrade. I'm ready to use the downgrader to 1.5, downloaded from here:

    http://www.afterdawn.com/news/archive/8525.cfm

    Please confirm this will work and give me any last minute advice.

    Once I'm down to 1.5, I wish to upgrade to a custom firmware to play games from memory stick and PS1 games on PSP.

    Please remember I am from a PAL region if this makes any difference.

    Thanks a lot guys,

    Jin666

    Also, after converting up to the CUSTOM FIRMWARE, will I be able to play my UMD games still?

    And if i have problems can I go back to another firmware?

    Well, I can't find one. If you're daring, try using the US update.

    No, believe me I'm really afraid of bricking the PSP. However, I don't recall ever seeing a PAL 1.5 Eboot. Do such things exist? Is the North America one going to work!? Hopefully other members can confirm something, and then I can proceed!

    Ok im failing already.

    It says copy the contents of the MS_ROOT folder from the downloaded pack onto the memory stick. But inside the MS_ROOT folder from the pack is a folder called psp, which is the same as the folder called PSP on the memory stick currently, and I can't have 2 of them on at the same time!?

    1. Update to 3.03 if already on 3.03 go on to the next step

    2. Open the 3.03 downgrade file (303dg.zip) and copy the psp folder to the root of your memory stick. Example Image
    Note: Don't copy the PSP folder into the MP_ROOT folder
    For Example:
    [​IMG]
    3. Open the 1.5 update zip and rename the EBOOT.PBP to UPDATE.PBP then copy it to /PSP/GAME/UPDATE/
    Make sure not to overwrite PSP/GAME/UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP
    For Example: [​IMG]

    4. Load GTA LCS

    5. It should get to loading save game, clear the screen, the screen should fill with a light blue color and then reset the PSP
    (If this does not happen see below)

    6. Check that HEN is running by going to system settings then System Information and it should show up as system version 303 HEN

    7. If it is showing up as 3.03 HEN then go to the Game menu and run the x.yz update

    8. Before the downgrader does anything to your PSP it will ask for you to agree to what it is doing
    If you no longer want to continue press the Right Shoulder Button (R-TRIGGER).

    9. Once you have agreed to start the downgrade do not unplug the PSP

    10. Once finished the PSP will ask you to press X, after pressing it will reset it self. (If it don't reset press O instead)

    11. If a blue screen (BSOD) comes up saying that the settings are corrupt press X or O to continue.

    12. Enjoy the new 1.5 PSP

    Ooohh I went ahead and downgraded to 1.5. Thank goodness, it worked and I fully appreciate the help guys. I would now like to upgrade to the best current custom firmware, which will allow me to play downloaded ISO's and PS1 games. Please help me out!

    Cheers

    On the guide it says:

    *Back up your psp files by coping them to your computer somewhere

    What files does it mean. All files on the mem stick?
