    Well he's right you need to update to 3.03 before you can downgrade. But before you do, you need to know that to downgrade from 3.03 you need an unpatched version of GTA: LCS. This version has the 2.00 update on it (not actually used for anything, just indicates it's the right one). The odds are if you buy one from a store you won't get the unpatched one. Try renting from places or buying and then selling after on ebay. Here's a link to firmware 3.03:

    After you downgrade you should update to a custom firmware, like 3.40OE-A. A custom firmware has all the features of sony's firmware, only with homebrew capabilities, being able to run backups off the memory stick, and customizing the xmb. As well as other things. Here's a link to the 3.40OE-A easy installer:

    Have fun, and good luck!

    you want to upgrade your 2.81 firmware to the official sony 3.03 which can be found at psp-hacks.com, and while you are there, pick up the 3.03 downgrader that is used for downgrading your firmware to 1.50-as well as the dark_alex 3.40OE-a custom firmware-in the meantime you will need to find an unpatched copy of GTA: Liberty City Stories to perform the downgrade.The unpatched version has the FW 2.00 update on it.Try your local eb games/gamestop for that game. Once you get it, then you can go ahead and downgrade your firmware to 1.5-and from there you update to 3.40OE-A which is the latest custom firmware that allows playing games from the memory stick as well as running your homebrew.

    **EDIT** sorry I walked away from the computer while composing a reply...echo....echo..echooooo....

    yes, 3.03 is good-but you still need the GTA game to downgrade so you can get the most out of your PSP-ie:homebrew, playing iso games, emulators, etc...etc...try eb games/gamestop, ebay, or try renting it from blockbuster or something..you need the one with the 2.0 FW update.
