    Hi guys I have followed all the steps on the 303 HEN Noobz Downgrader Guide and still 3.03 wont turn on the system informaation it still says Version 3.03 what can I do I have used the below guide the game resets I go back and it still Version 3.03 everytime


    303 HEN Noobz Downgrader Guide
    ------------------------------

    Here is a guide for downgrading any current PSP hardware version
    (TA-079 - TA-086) from firmware 2.81-3.03 to 1.50.

    IMPORTANT:
    The Noobz team is strongly against piracy, and we're not just
    saying that to cover our butts. When you pirate games, you're
    removing the incentive for game and console makers to continue
    making fun things for us to play with. We are releasing this
    downgrader because we believe that using your PSP to its full
    potential and being able to customize it and run homebrew code
    is a fair use right that should be available to everyone.
    Please purchase games that you intend to play. Thanks!

    Requirements
    ------------
    In order to downgrade a 3.03 PSP you will need the following:

    - Original GTA LCS (any region), which should have the 2.00 update on the disc.

    - 3.03 Downgrader (this package)
    http://www.noobz.eu/joomla/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=88888895&func=fileinfo&id=12

    - 1.50 Update
    http://dl.qj.net/PSP-Firmware-1.50-File-(EBOOT)-North-America-PSP/pg/12/fid/163/catid/163

    - 3.03 Update if you are on firmware 2.81 to 3.02
    http://dl.qj.net/PSP-Firmware-3.03-PSP/pg/12/fid/11844/catid/163

    ******************************************************************
    * WARNING, ANY DOWNGRADER HAS A CHANCE OF BRICKING A PSP. WHEN A *
    * PSP IS BRICKED YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE IT ANYMORE. WE HAVE *
    * DONE A LOT TO TRY AND MINIMISE THE RISK, BUT THERE IS ALWAYS *
    * SOME LEVEL OF RISK WHICH YOU MUST ACCEPT IF YOU WANT TO *
    * DOWNGRADE *
    ******************************************************************

    Instructions
    ------------
    Here are the steps to downgrade any 3.03 PSP to 1.50:

    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 <pspdrive>:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE

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

    5 - Delete <pspdrive>:/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 <pspdrive>:/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.


    Troubleshooting
    ---------------
    - Ensure that you have the original GTA LCS, it should have a 2.00 update
    on the UMD, if it does not then it is a later version and can not be used
    to downgrade.

    - If GTA does not load 3.03 HEN and it loads up a save game, try making
    a backup copy of all of the directories in <pspdrive>:/PSP/SAVEDATA/
    before deleting them. Then try copying the contents of the 303 HEN zip
    to there.

    - If when trying to restore the network config using netconf backup you
    find that it gives you an error on the downgraded 1.50 PSP, try adding
    a temporary network config, then deleting it and run the netconf backup
    again.

    Yes thats the one. I would format the memory stick and reinstall the 3.03 Downgrader files.

    Ive done everything again still same problem hen wont come up

    My problem

    "If GTA does not load 3.03 HEN and it loads up a save game, try making
    a backup copy of all of the directories in <pspdrive>:/PSP/SAVEDATA/
    before deleting them. Then try copying the contents of the 303 HEN zip
    to there"

    This is the problem it wont load without bringing the save data in the msroot folder to the save data in the psp Ive got it to load the saves buts it not reading the msroot in the memory stick is still shows Version 3.03 in the system settings

    In that 3.03Hen zip file folder which files do you copy in that folder and in the msroot in the memory stick do I leave the msroot the way it is because there 2 of the same save files in the memory stick

    format ur memory stick again. Inside the MS_ROOT folder there should be a PSP folder and some others. Copy all the files inside MS_ROOT to the root of your psp (main page), if u copy it to the right place it will ask if u want to overwrite files.

    U install psx games to PSP\GAME. You dont need an emulator. It doesnt run ISO's either the psx games have to be converted from an iso to eboot.
