    I've been looking through threads about how to start playing umd games downloaded. For instance, Kingdom of paradise. I have downloaded fastloader and umd emulator and the downgrader. Now im just stuck of what to do. I've made a ISO file in the ROOTS file but nothing is working. Mostly all the files say they are corrupted. Please help, thanks.

    The ISO folder in the root is for custom firmware only, which requires no fastloader/umd emulator, it simply runs from the main menu. You need to be on custom firmware, or official version 1.50 with Devhook to run ISO's, so yea we need to know what firmware your on.

    Your PSP wouldnt turn on without firmware mate :)

    Follow geri's instructions to see which one you have, we can tell you how to downgrade before we know which one you have

    The version I have on my psp is 2.71. I downloaded the downgrader. I'm just not sure what to do after that. On the serial its a psp 1001, if that helps any.

    Ah ok just follow the downgrader instructions, make sure you read them thouroughly before you begin, and make sure your battery is fully charged and plugged into the mains. I say read them well because i myself am not familiar with the 2.71 downgrader, but if you have any problems about it post here and im sure other people will help.

    If you experience any other problems, just post here, i'll be here most of the day.

    no offence but if u dont know what firmware is then i wouldnt get into downgrading psp's just yet as there is a small chance of bricking

    if u still want to downgrade then use this excellent and very easy to follow tutorial http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/about17935.html

    Hmmm which step is that in the guide? Am i looking at the same one as you, with the colour indicators? If you you shouldn't have to run the update, just the packaged files

    Edit: I actually read the guide and you do have to run it. There are a couple of 2.71 DG's, for different motherboards, you should find out which on you have before trying again

    How do I found what mother board I have? I tried running the program once and it worked but didnt have the update file. Now im trying to run it all it does is go to the blue screen and reset itself. It wont go back to the original screen where I first saw it.
