This is a discussion on [Guide] 2.81-3.03 to 1.5 Downgrade Guide within the PSP Homebrew and Hacks Discussion forums, part of the PSP Development, Hacks, and Homebrew category; Originally Posted by virupaji55 With the files that are suppose to go in the Root folder, when they say Root ...
I tried it all out again. Formatted the memory stick, copied the 3.03 EBOOT.PBP file to the GAME/UPDATE folder, also place the UPDATE.PBP file within the GAME/UPDATE folder.
Placed the content of the 303dg.zip file within the
ran GTA LCS, the firmware didn't change, so i copied all the 303dg.zip files to
folder, and ran GTA LCS, the firm ware is still 3.03 (no HEN). so i copied all the files to:
again, nothing happend, firmware still at 3.03.
Anyway to downgrade 3.03 to 2.71? (I started at 2.71 and upgraded.) I saw a thread that has a quick downgrade from 2.71 to 1.5.

Just format your memory stick and follow the guide to the T and it will work.
Also when you run GTA LCS if you have the files right and if GTA does not load the save game your GTA LCS is patched.
Q. How do I tell if I have a unpatched version of GTA?
A. The UMD will include the 2.0 update anything higher is patched.
OHHH i found out why its not working for me.
Under games there is the "PSP UPDATE VER 2.60" this has to be "PSP UPDATE VER 2.0"
thats y. I gotta go back tomorrow to Game Stop and trade in my GTA LCS.
Thanks brad :)

I got a 4GB MS and managed to upgrade to 3.10 OE-a with an easyinstaller (great work).
Now after making an iso file of my sons FIFA07 (so he doesn't have to chage the UMD every time) following problem appears.
Game can be started from MS but it runs sometimes in slowmotion.
Any suggestions to solve this problem?
Is the sollution overclocking to 333Mhz as I read on the internet?
Correct me if I'm in the wrong forum topic.

3.10 OE-A also adds better POPS compatibility.

This guide was a total lifesaver, thank you so much! I already downgraded my PSP, but that was firmware 2.7x, a total different game than 2.82, which is what my friend had, and wanted to downgrade from. Thanks again for the help, it worked perfectly!

STEP 3: Now step 3 says "Open the 1.5 update zip and rename the EBOOT.PBP to UPDATE.PBP then copy it to /PSP/GAME/UPDATE/
Make sure not to overwrite PSP/GAME/UPDATE/EBOOT.PBP"
But there was no E:/PSP/GAME/UPDATE/ folder to start with, so how can I replace the EBOOT.PBP file?
For everyone asking if 3.10OE / 3.03 OE can use backed up games, yes.
I * strongly * recommend backing up your UMDs to your memory stick as they are exceptionally easy to break and lose.

AND WE HAVE LIFT OFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
Brad thanks so much man. I figured out what I was doing wrong. Being the tech geek I am, i would open up the downgrade zip file, and then select all and drag and drop.
What I SHOulD have been doing is, hitting the extract button and copying over the folder structure as is.
Now going to see if i can play mario bro's :)
so far i did everything well but until the part of grand theft auto T_T i didnt no tat i needed tat game... i cant find one tats a psp too can ANYONE PLZ SEND IT TO ME plz thnx alot (email@example.com)

the original. Has to be version 2.0. Head over to EB Games or Gamestop and ask them for the 1st edition. Usually it'll be the used one about $17.99.Originally Posted by emmerson2007

I am having the same issue as the gentleman who you previously replied to. I have gotten all the way to the point where my system software displays as 3.03 HEN... However, when I work my way back over to the Game Menu, there is only an option for "PSP Update ver 2.00" and no such x.yz updater.Originally Posted by Brad.
I have tried reformatting my memory stick and reloading everything as the guide says specifically. This is as far as I get. Could anyone offer any help?
EDIT: I figured it out after watching a video on YouTube. It's not just in the game menu, you also have to scroll down to the memory stick and find the x.yz updater in THAT menu. How n00b of me. *_*;;

Hi, another new one to all this upgrade to downgrade stuff!!!
I have 2.81 and dowloaded the update to 3.03, but when I go to 'game' to update I get a corrupted data message. I have tried several times, but it never works. I did not have an 'UPDATE' folder so I created one as mentioned on one of the threads and I then checked the 'game' again prior to dowloading the update and even got the corrupted message then!!! AHHHHH!!!
Also I see everywhere MS_ROOT mentioned, but when I look at the files mine is called MP_ROOT. Has this maybe got anything to do with it???
Plaese HELP, its doing my head in!!!!!!!!!!
Make sure in
The file is renamed to EBOOT.PBP not somenumber_EBOOT.PBP
Also MS_ROOT just mean the outside of the mem stick. DOn't worry about it on this guide as it not used. Look at the example image of the guide when stateing to dowgrade.
"2. Open the 3.03 downgrade file (303dg.zip) and copy the psp folder to the root of your memory stick. Example Image
Note: Don't copy the PSP folder into the MP_ROOT folder"
in my memory stick root
i already have a folder called PSP with games, photoes, etc.
so i copy the psp file from the 3.03 downgrade into the memroy stick root
but what do i do with the one that is already there?
