    sorry man, but your screwed. What you would need to do is downgrade your PSP then upgrade it to the custom firmwear made by dark_aleX (i think.) and right now there are now downgraders for 3.03. I believe that another downgrader is going to be released sometime soon though, but im not sure if it is for fw 3.03 .

    ps: if you find a downgrader for your frimwear, be careful, it might not actually be and it could fusk up your PSP real bad...never work again bad! so you should ask someone smart if the downgrader is legit befor trying, unless you would find it amusing playing with a brick

    if you have anymore questions ask, i might be able to help, but im definately not the sharpest tool in the shed around here...


    good day to you sir

    im not even sure wat a psp is fully capable of but what i no i want to do is
    1.play homebrews
    2.play any umd ( i just got my psp a month ago but my cousin got his when it first came out and i remeber that when he had a low version he had to upgrade to play certain games like liberty city stories. dont no if things are still like this but i dont want to have to upgrade everytime i want to play a umd. i want to be able to play my homebrew and any umd game without switching the version back and foward)
    3.I just want any other kickass features the psp can offer

    dumb me when i got this psp it was 1.5 when i got it but i had to upgrade

    well, like i said, i don,t know much more than you do. But right now i have custom frimware 3.02 oe-a (not sure if thats its exact name.) there are more upgrades out for it too, they actually go up to 3.03 oe-b - maybe c, not positive on that either. that doesnt matter tight now though. anyway, it has all of the features that your psp has right now, and more. aside from UMDs, you can play plays station 1 games by putting them onto your memory stick, you can also play PSP games with your ms too- you can download them as torrents...i mean, no, that is bad...(wink wink nudge nudge...) you but if you have 2.71 with dev hook, you can store games on your computer and play them with a usb cable with out actually putting them onto your ms, where with the custom firmware you have to put it onto your memory stick.
    ummm...lets see...
    annnd you can use your PSP as a universal remote...not sure what frimware is needed for that though, i am actually trying to find out though, when i find out ill tell you if your interested.

    your welcome, but before you sell it, you should find a thread where they are talking about new downgraders or frimware ore something, just in case you dont need to sell your psp.

    ps. i stumbled upon a thread earlier and i dont know if this is true, but a new downgrader is supposed to be comming out in about a week or something, not sure what fw its for, ask around a bit...

    you got it all wrong buddy, you it wont let you update because you have a higher firmware. You have 3.03 the game needs 2.00. You dont need it cause its higher.This is only for people who are under 2.00 and need to update to play the game.
