    Does it matter ?

    He will have to downgrade first regardless, before upgrading to 3.03oec.

    The motherboard would just change the method of downgrading.

    Because if he doesnt use the right downgrader he could brick his machine thats why.

    Which is why I said "The motherboard would just change the method of downgrading."

    Can't you people read ?

    No anger on my part.

    It doesnt change anything, which is why you need certain downgraders for different motherboards.
    Granted the 3.03 downgrader fits all motherboards as it patches the TA-082 for you.
    But since he asked about a 2.80 downgrader and didnt say weather or not it was a TA-082, it would be wrong to give him a link to just any downgrader without asking first.

    It actually would mate, then you have no need to worry about what version your motherboard is.
    Just dont upgrade any higher than 3.03

    well if there are no numbers there then u dont have a ta-082 mobo which is good you would be better off upgrading to 2.80 and downgrading frm there as you dont need an unpatched gta lcs to downgrade lyk you do on 3.03.

    haha...anger

    yeah...it'd be much easier to just downgrade to 1.5 instead of 303ing to downgrade, to then (again) upgrade to OE-C...

    i don't know if it's relevant to you, but if you truely want to customize ur psp, i'd stick with OE-B. many changes tween B & C, but more options....

    - in fact, thats what i am going to do today.... ;)

    no fuss no fight!

    nuff Respect

    actually i would ugrade to 2.71 because it has a safer easy installer that you can use i have done it atleast ten times and worked good with all of them. if you want the file pm me.
