I have a 3.3 and iwas wondering if there are any downgrader for it:Argh:
No. Wrong thread entirely, anyway.
Actually, had he took the time to read this thread, he would have found the answer to be that there is no downgrader. If there ever is one, I'll update the post accordingly.
Of course, I embarrass myself again by seeing that the answer was already in the thread. Oh well. (I just noticed that the firmware listing section explicitly states that you cannot downgrade a 3.30 PSP)
Look at ur psp screen first. flip it over. Open the latch. THe look at the top right hand corner of the interior of the latch. U should see a c1003 clearly printed in gold. IF u can see it u got a motherboard ta- 82. IF u cant then u got a ta - 81
Best Buy all has 2.60 Ta-082 only. Lol they're all I nice...
Can everyone please donate me ONE (or more) point(s)? You'll be put in my cool list!Originally Posted by Dark_Alex

If I were to go to a B&M store to buy a new PSP today, what firmware is it likely to have, and how likely is it that i'd be able to get homebrew running on it? I'd rather not have to buy a used PSP off ebay or something.
Depends on the store, read the box codes guide on page one of this thread and try and find one with at least 3.03 or lower.
Box Code O = 3.10
I just received a PSP (ceramic white) from play-asia, and the letter near the upc code was P and it turned out to be 3.11 firmware I just wanted to give anyone reading this the heads up.
Box Code P = 3.11
Thanks for the info I'll add it to the front page of the thread.
Just bought a white PSP with letter "K", had 2.71 firmware and TA-082 motherboard.
Very useful information...
for sale located in fremont for 210.......
damn so i guess no more luck on finding a 3.03 PSP...
Hey guys.. Im new here.
Thanks for the post. I will definitely look for something lower than K on the box. Hopefully I could find one. If not I'll probably give up on PSP.
So when I buy my new PSP this weekend I need to look out for an N or earlier? Has anyone seen this publically available or are they in short supply? Any recommendations of where to go in order to get one?
I think it has been confirmed this doesnt work anymore...
This signature has been raped by the rep system
Why not? Everyone is still posting new box codes...
Thats odd because Ive seen a couple people saying it doesnt work.

I think the only way to get one like that would be from a pawn shop or friend, because all the ones I see are ones with box codes of 3.11 or higher.
@TO this still works fine.
Its just some bundle packs may not have a letter. But you should find a majority with letters to tell firmware.
I really want to pull the trigger and buy a PSP today, but Ill be honest, I'm scared! I REALLY want to play homebrews but all this talk about this letter works, this one doesnt has me confused.
If I go to the store today, what letter or under do I need to look for in order to be able to load homebrews? Also, how hard is the whole GTA "trick" to do? I'm not rolling in the cash so bricking my PSP is a real fear.
It still does work. Some users are just confused cause some bundle packs don't have the letter.Originally Posted by Frost033
Look for a K or under if you wish not to use the GTA LCS downgrade method. If you do have a unpatched version of GTA LCS (Contains 2.00 update). Find a PSP with N or lower.
2.71 and Higher downgrades are extremely safe.
I had 4 PSP's three 2.6 and one 1.5 but I sold three of them and kept one for myself
This still works. Today I bought a 2.81 with L.
Bought an "I" last week and it came with 2.60 and TA-082.
Picked up a "K" today (15 Jun 07) with 2.71 and TA-082.

cud any1 plz tell me if its possible to find the firmware version out if a psp doesnt have a box?? i am planning to buy a 2nd hand psp and the guy selling the psp doesnt have the box and doesnt know bout the firmware version either. cheerz
Without the box, you would have to check through the PSP menu
Settings --> System Settings --> System Software
Or something along those lines.
