I've spent many hours trying to understand the downgrading process and the steps involved but I'm still stumped. Here's what I have; psp version 2.80 with the TA-082 motherboard Here's what I want; to play games via the memory stick (nothing more nothing less) What exactly is needed to do this? I read that the TA-082 on version 2.80 can't be downgraded, true or not? Then I read that if you upgrade using GTA your then capable of downgrading. There's so many things to understand before attemting this I just wanted everything to be clarified before risking a brick. So here's what I'd really like to know 1. What steps and software are needed to downgrade and once that's done; 2. What needs to be installed to run games on the memory stick Just know I have spent alot of time searching different threads before posting here as a last resort. Thanks to any or all who help me out. It will be much, much appreciated.
