Over at the official playstation message boards someone has posted a possible 2.6 downgrader. Could it be real??? You be the Judge.
Here is the info:
"===NOTICE, THE BELOW INSTRUCTIONS ARE ONLY REFERANCE FOR WHEN THE DOWNGRADER IS RELEASED, THE DOWNGRADER IS NOT RELEASD YET. SCROLL TO THE VERY BOTTOM FOR INFORMATION ON HOW TO APPLY TO THE BETA TESTING.===
- The folder requires a distinct name. It has to be large, yet, not too large. If it is too small the downgrader WILL NOT WORK.
An example of this is 14 letters/numbers. What I have tried what has seem to work has:
(Make sure you have backed up all files on mem stick but remains inside the PSP.)
(No UMDS in drive)
Place this folder into the PHOTO.
Within the folder you will need a very unique PSD file which has data in it which allows access of the kernal system and includes the 1.5 update.
Right click the folder and push ’View Slideshow’
It will say that there are no images to be viewed.
The PSP will shortly freeze.
Push the home button.
Asian letters should appear, go to the far right option.
This will bring you to a screen, asking if you wish to install 1.5.
You press yes.
After getting here, you will recieve a blue screen in many languages, asking you to press O to reset to defualt settings.
-- Wait, you’re not downgraded yet --
Go to Format Memory Stick and then USB connection (With a USB cord of course)
Many jumbled files will be there, find the one that says U661D20-1001
Delete it (This will be deleting the files which disallowed all access the 2.0 updates gave us.
Again, you will be directed to the blue screen.
don’t press O!
Leave the PSP on for approx 5 minutes.
The PSP will shut itself off.
Turn it on, and it will turn itself on and then off
Keep doing it for awhile, your psp is not a brick
tahdah. Downgrade complete.
NOTICE: YOU ONLY HAVE A 97% OF DOWNGRADING SUCCESSFULLY USE AT OWN RISK
ONLY WORKS ON 1001 PSPS.
IS NOT YET RELEASED. THE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS ARE ONLY FOR REFERANCE.
Hoping this doesnt get deleted, it will be bumped in the morning seeing it is very busy on the forums at that time.
I, the Author, am looking for volunteers with the latest firmware (2.6) to PM the author of topic. In approxmately one week I will be posting those who will be beta testing.
The only requirements are:
Speak English fluently
Own a 2.6 PSP
Agree to the terms when you recieve them
Do not distribute without my (the Author)’s approval
Thank you for your time and patience. I hope that you all have the same view in the Envisions downgrader as I do.
