0okm has released a 2.8 DG for TA-079 to TA-081 PSPs!!
He is uploading at the mo, but it will soon be up!
This is really a great christmas for 2.8ers!
EDIT: Its up!
Heres what he says:
I wouldnt try it yet though, it hasnt been tested at all - we are unable to test as no one has a 1.5 IPL dump.Originally Posted by 0okm
Reports are in that it is a FAKE, be very careful if you are even thinking about doing the downdate.

Right now its 3:0 to the bricks, so it not looking very hopeful...... (But it is frontpage news!)
But remember, they might be lies! *Fingers Crossed*
According to Freeplay, this exploit ONLY works on eloader, Xloader does NOT have kernel acsess.
Nicky has sucsessfully downgraded! Video is on its way!
Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMdChhz6XzU
At the moment, I dont know what to think.
On IRC a lot, almost 100% of people are saying it works, but QJ is saying its a bricker.
I think its real, and I'm going to try it if Fanjita says its fine, and if you decide to do it I am not responsable for what happens to your PSP.
Now people are also saying, use Xloader! Apparently, you've got to use PatchSFO, restart and coldboot your psp, and then run the DownDater through Xloader.
And heres another DG video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywaRQJUTZw4 - really good quality.
Right, IT WORKS!
Its not a bricker, its only a bricker for people with bad FW dumps. And use xloader.
Just make sure the md5s are all right. Check here: TA-079 to TA-081 2.80 Dger Success Rate!.
Use something like FastSum to check the md5s.
