    well first u need to find out if its a ta-082. if it is or not either way ull have to upgrade to 2.71.....then downgrade from there. the reason i asked about the ta-082 is because if it is...make sure to download the ta-082 version of the 2.71 downgrader.

    i went to this website
    http://www.modchipstore.com/support/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=164
    i think its the one you gave me..
    and when i open the psp there is no text on the right hand side at the top but on the left hand site there is something written in orange which is hard to see.. after looking at it with a torch it says something like IC6001.. but this is on the left hand side and the image shows the writing on the left hand side.. so does this mean that i have a ta-082 or not???
    thanks..

    If it doesnt have the numbers/text on the right side behind the UMD door it is a non-ta082...download the 2.71 easy downgrader...it has all the files, walks u thru it, and takes u straight to 1.5.

    anytime u mess with flash u can muck up your psp and turn it into a brick. if you follow instructions u should be good. anyhow go to psp-hacks.com u can find both the 2.71 update and the downgrader there. both safe, used both many times.

    It's all up to you, and yes it's all safe to use on a white psp. I am an owner of one and had to go thru the same exact process.
