). Ive been pummeled by homework since I started school, and it really takes up most of my time. Last week I went to target and saw GTA VCS (ive played and passed LCS). Soooo i Decided to get a PSP. Used of course, i picked it up for $75 with 3 games, Screen protector since the first day it was born. Its got FW 2.71

not sure exactly whats so special about it, but judging that today's firmwares are >3.0 it seems to be a delicious thing to have. So expect to see me a bit more around here

DUUUUDE!

FW 2.71 is low enough to downgrade with the libtiff exploit!
Look for 2.71 downgrader on pspupdates.qj.net, and re-update to a CFW.
Then use it to play *ahem* "backups" on your PSP!
You can also play PSX "backups" after you convert the ISO file.

Awesome, eh?

Have fun! I really enjoyed the GTA games on the PSP, having portable GTA just kicks all kinds of arse.

Also as scuber states downgrade that sucker then update to CFW, all the benefits of regular firmware but you get to play with homebrew and emulators.

EDIT:

oh, gets me thinking. I'll likely have to update the PSP if i wanna play Socom, right? Should I HAX right now before getting the game? Or will it ask me to do it regardless

I'm not sure what update is contained on Socom, but if it is above 2.71 then yes it would require you to update the official firmware in order to play it.

You would be better off installing the custom firmware now and then you can play everything including your official UMD games no problems. It's really not that hard to downgrade and install, as long as you don't turn your PSP off during the process there is no way you can brick your PSP.

Just so y'know, things from CFW that you will be different from normal Sony firmware:

First glace, nothing. M33 CFW looks exactly the same. Really, it'll look, feel, and play just like it normally would.

But, with CFW, under the games list, you can put emulators, PSP isos, PSX isos (converted), homebrew, etc.

Pressing select will bring up a menu that will, among other things, let you change the PSP clock speed. Don't confuse this with overclocking. The PSP is actually built to be a 333mhz cpu. But, Sony underclocks it to 222mhz to save battery power.

Overall, it just opens the PSP up to do much more. Oh, and if anything ever messes up, CFW has a recovery mode to fix whatever might be wrong (along with lots of other settings).

http://www.pspmod.com/forums/psp-firmware-...-6-27-07-a.html

Im planning to do the Easy 2.71 TA-082 Downgrader, since it seems like the easiest and most straight forward. I will downgrade to 1.5. From there update to 3.8?

From 1.5, i found this other "how to" http://www.pspmod.com/forums/psp-firmware-...b-friendly.html

Soo, ill have to slowly update all the way up to 3.8 m33??

Im quite confused by all these numbers
