    Yes. I want to start playing downloaded games, but my Psp version is a 2.82. I was to told to get GTA LS Unpatched because it has version 2.00. I just needed to know what to do next and where to get the fimeware to do it.

    I tried what you said , but when I load the GTA, it doesn't go to the blue screen. It just loads right into the game. I don't know what went wrong. My copy of GTA is 2.00. What am I going to do now?

    this is what i did and it worked

    this is the noobz downgrader instructions, i will upload the files and put them in my sig,

    1 - If you have a 3.03 PSP skip to step 6

    2 - Download 3.03 update from here:
    http://dl.qj.net/PSP-Firmware-3.03-PSP/pg/12/fid/11844/catid/163

    3 - Unzip and place the file in :/PSP/GAME/UPDATE

    4 - On the PSP, run the 3.03 update from the memory stick under the Game menu.

    5 - Delete :/PSP/GAME/UPDATE

    6 - Copy the contents of the folder MS_ROOT from the 3.03 downgrader ZIP to
    the memory stick

    7 - Unzip the 1.50 update to a temporary folder. Rename the EBOOT.PBP to
    UPDATE.PBP and copy it to :/PSP/GAME/UPDATE/ . DO NOT
    OVERWRITE PSP/GAME/UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP!

    8 - Load GTA LCS

    9 - It should get to loading savegame, then the screen will clear to black
    and fill with a light blue colour, then the PSP will reset itself (if
    this does not happen see section below)

    10 - Check that HEN is running by going to system settings, then to
    "System Information" and it should show up as system version
    303 HEN

    11 - If it is showing up as HEN then go to the memory stick and
    run the x.yz update

    12 - If you have an unpatched TA-082 or higher motherboard, you will be
    prompted to allow the downgrader to patch your motherboard so it
    can be safely downgraded. The downgrader will not let you proceed
    without patching, if your motherboard requires it.

    13 - 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).

    14 - Once you have agreed to start the downgrade do not unplug the
    PSP, or try and restart it

    15 - Once finished the PSP will ask you to press X, and reset itself

    16 - If it comes up saying that the settings are corrupt, press x
    to continue, this will mean you will need to re-enter the
    settings for network connections into your PSP, otherwise go to
    step 18

    17 - Load the included NetConfigBackup application in your PSP, and select to
    restore, this will take the backup that was done of the network config
    that was done automatically during the downgrade.

    18 - All done now :) Hopefully you now have a 1.50 PSP. Enjoy it responsibly.

    @ chkm8t...check this step 6 - Copy the contents of the folder MS_ROOT from the 3.03 downgrader ZIP to
    the memory stick

    im guessing you put the folder "ms_root" into your ms root...you actually just need to grab the folder inside of the ms_root folder you were provided with (i believe the folder is entitled psp if im not mistaken) and place that on your memory stick...when it asks if you would like to overwrite click yes.

    I suggest upgrading to custom firmware at least 3.03 oe-c or above. It will make your life easier. Theres easy installers around in the afterdawn forums...if you would like 3.03 oe-c just click on the link in my signature.

    3.03 oe-c not 3.03...two different firmwares, ones sony and one is custom. once your at 3.03 oe-c just format your memory stick and drop your iso files in the iso folder.
