    no upgrade to the official 2.71 sony firware.
    and use the ta-82 2.71 downgrader to downgrade to 1.5.
    and then install 3.03 oeb custom firware

    i dont think so mate, to be honest all the good things that can be done with a psp, is revolved around 1.5 :(, but you can downgrade to 1.5, upgrade to custom firmware, than you can have version 3.03 (current highest there is) and play your cool sega games and have the browser and a lot more

    Well there is 1 other way. It does involve upgrading to 2.71 but once you are there you could use Hen-D. That will let you play most Homebrew.

    if you decide to downgrade follow this link http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/about17935.html

    make sure which motherboard you have if it is a new psp it's probably a ta-082 ,if it is a pink psp the motherboard is a ta-086

    Swords honestly dude I would not upgrade right at this moment. Give your self a day or 2 to read up on what you are doing first. Downgrading can be a tricky thing and inexperienced users can easily brick their psp's. So read up on the guides on this forum so you know 100% what you are doing.

    i just bought a psp not too long ago and i have version 2.71. i also like to play old nintendo, snes, sega, etc. games on it. i also like to keep my internet browser as well as play umd games. is there a version that can upgrade to it. as i don't know much about psp, i would like to know if i can only upgrade and not downgrade. i heard the psp can brick if you miss read on an instruction. as i don't know much about electronics, i would like to know if i can upgrade to a newer version where i can keep the internet, play old games, and play umd games. yes, i'm a noob, so go easy on me and use terms i would understand. thanks guys.

    Download : http://rapidshare.com/files/12649156/2.71.rar

    Use the 2.71 Upgrade.rar to upgrade to 2.71. Simply create the following directory PSP/GAME/UPDATE and place the Eboot.pbp file in there. Then run the upgrade from your Memory Stick.
    After that run the 2.71 Downgrader. Just follow the on screen instructions, its easy. Only thing with this downgrader is that it doesnt always work first time, but it does work (I have done about 10 PSPs with this one).
    Once all the files are installed on your PSP you are meant to click on the Photo menu on your PSP and the screen shoud go RED. If it DOESNT then just turn the PSP off, back on and then try it again. Ive had to do it about 15 times for it to work before now.

    sorry swordsg for interrupting your thread, but i figure i don't want to start another thread so i'll ask here. ok, so i have a psp with original version 2.71. where is the link or what do i do to downgrade it to version 1.5, then to version 3.03oeb. i too want to play old emulators and keep my internet browser. is 3.03oeb the best version for playing games on emulator and using the internet browser? can i still play original umd games on it because i just bought 2 games at the store. thanks guys.
