This can be done 2 ways. 1. The side of psp box. 2. Under settings/system setting/system information * if you already have firmware 1.5 skip to step four. Step three: The firmware will decide the downgrader to use. ta-82 downgrader is a different motherboard model of psp Do not use any downgrader so far on it.:> Different downgrader list from lowest to highest: 2.0 to 1.5 PSP Downloads | 2.0 -> 1.5 (MPH) Downgrader 2.5/2.6 to 1.5 PSP Downloads | Firmware 2.5+2.60 to 1.5 Downgrader 2.71 to 1.5 PSP Downloads | Easy 2.71 Downgrader 2.8 to 1.5 PSP Downloads | Easy 2.80 Downgrader Here's ta-82 downgrader: PSP Downloads | TA-082 Downgrader I can't really help you with this model so just follow the readme. Step four: The fun part, now that you have a psp running 1.5 firmware. * keep in mind you really need at least a gb memory card for any real fun with psp homebrew or emulation - they're about $40 bucks. Here's a list of emulators and homebrew: * all these programs need to be saved in psp\games folder PSP ISO games devhook.52 PSP Downloads | DevHook v0.52 This allows you to run ISO images of PSP games and emulate different firmware to play those games. Now you can dump your own images (but let's be honest, downloader on p2p or torrent program is easier and faster in most cases). dax ziso loader PSP Downloads | DAX ZISO Loader v0.62 Another great iso loader. If one doesn't work the other will. Gameboy Advance PSP Downloads | gpSP 0.9 Nes PSP Downloads | NesterJ Emulator Snes PSP Downloads | SnesPSP_TYL v0.4.2 ME N64 (beta still) PSP Downloads | Daedalus R8 Psx emulation 3.2 oe-a PSP Downloads | 3.02 OE-A Then do this one: 3.2 oe-b PSP Downloads | 3.02 OE-B Then this one: 3.3 oe-a PSP Downloads | 3.03 Open Edition Revision A Now that you have your PSP flashed to 3.3 oe-a you can play PSX games What I do is make a folder called psx in psp/games/ That's where I put eboot I made from the PSX image. Use this tool to make your PSX images into eboots: PSP Downloads | Simple POPSTATION GUI It takes your PSX image and converts it to PSP eboot so it can be played on PSP. Last min notes: You can change the icons and background pictures even music with this tool as well. ICON0 is icon 144 x 80 PIC1 is background image 480x272 PIC0 is description or I use an in-game screen shot 310x180 ICON1.pmf is a mini movie you can make but keep it under 500kb SND0.ac3 is a music file that plays when select that icon but keep it under 500kb Well that's it, if anyone else has any other questions let me know and don't forget to read readme files.
