Here is what happened: I went ahead and got ready to downgrade 1.5. So I downloaded the OFFICIAL PSP firmware 3.03 and put it into the PSP memory stick. I then ran the update. It went fine until it reached 99%. It was stuck there for 2 min until I finally got a message that said PSP update failed. I restarted the PSP and everything seemed to be fine. I checked the version and it said 3.03. I then went ahead and put the files in that were needed for GTA. I then put in GTA and get a message saying "this disc could not be read" immediately after I closed the door. Same thing happened with 5 other games. Is there anyway to rollback the firmware to the previous version? Or am I stuck in 3.03 until they figure out a way to do the downgrade without GTA. I am pretty sure updating to newer version will fix this but I don't want to do that. BTW its a first gen PSP. Thanks for the help.
