    once you upgrade to 2.71 official sony you can then downgrade your psp to 1.50 using the guide i linked you to,once at 1.50 you can upgrade to any custom firmware (3.40oe or 3.52m33-4 are the best ones-but 3.52m33-4 is the latest one and best out of the 2)

    no worrys lol,
    ~2.60/2.50 PSP~


    Currently it is faster to first update to 2.71 and then use the generic 2.71 downgrader guide.

    Advantages
    -Don't need GTA
    -Don't need helper files


    Download: 2.71 Update

    1. Copy the 2.71 Update renamed to EBOOT.PBP to X:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE

    2. Run from the PSP

    then once you do that go to the -2.71 PSP part of the page of the link i posted and follow the instructions this will downgrade you to 1.50

    once you've done all that let me know and i'll get you upto a custom firmware then you can run isos from memstick

    (you will need the generic downgrader files)

    eboot 1.50 zip?????? i think you need to extract that with winrar

    Files needed for 2.71 PSP
    Generic Downgrade Files
    1.5 Update


    1. Open the downloaded files
    -From the 271dg.zip extract every thing to your PSP's root (X:\)
    Spoiler for Example:

    -Now take the EBOOT.PBP that within the EBOOT_1.50.zip file and rename it to UPDATE.PBP. Then copy the file to X:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE folder.

    2. Connect the AC adapter to the PSP highlight the PHOTO icon and then press Trianglethen Slideshow

    A Few things could happen

    - The PSP freezes, just restart manually and try again.
    - Red screen the process has failed.Reset manually and try again.

    - Blue or green screen the process was a success the PSP will reset itself.


    Note: For the next few steps make sure your battery is charged to at least 75% and your charger plugged in.

    3. Go to GAME and run the UPDATE X.YZ.

    -If your battery is less than 75%, the PSP will restart without displaying any errors.
    -If everything goes well then it will display something like this Doing preparationsandExtracting special PRXs.

    4. After the screen will change to magenta or pink text Press X
    -The downgrade will show a percentage bar.

    5. When it finishes it will say to press X and the PSP will restart itself.

    6. Welcome to 1.5
