PSP downgrader for v3.03 released

While I was on vacation, [Fanjita] and [Ditlew] released a downgrader for PSPs running v3.03 firmware. To get it to work, you’ll need an unpatched copy of the GTA:Liberty City Stories UMD. The hack should get you down to v1.5. It’s supposed to work on all current PSP hardware. Thanks to [wraggster], [Steve DiRaddo]. [Sean] submitted the same info [via noobz], but they don’t appear to have credited the authors. (Unless of course, the authors are part of noobz.)

    cool, and I got first post :P

  2. Kenny says:

    The reason Noobz did not credit Fanjita and Ditlew is because they are both a part of Noobz.

  3. Will O'Brien says:

    I couldn’t tell if that’s the case from the noobz site, but I did wonder.

  4. XyTec says:

    just to clarify, my psp is a TA-086 and it worked. thats the latest motherboard, so it works great.

  5. Steve DiRaddo says:

    the hard part is getting your hands on the unpatched version. but at least its possible o_O

    You pretty much cant buy it anymore, they are all “fixed” now. it was the original few batches that included they 2.0 upgrade on them that work. also a .iso wont work it must be an original UMD. If you can get one this downgrader is fantastic!

    To “Stiggy_nz”:
    I suggest going to your local video game rental store, and using that. I downgrade PSP’s for a lot of people, and find that if you go to a Roger’s, (if there is one near you) you’ll find that you can get unpatched versions. Silly managers! When will you learn to put out new games on your shelves every once in a while?

    To “dioxide”:
    There is a different art on the back of the box of the patched one. if you can still find one, google the LCS box back pic, and find a comparison if you can. Use this as a shopping guide.

    To “Ricky”:
    There will never be a way to run the downlaodable content without amending the PSP code with an external program. However, we can always rely on Devhook to help us out with that.

    Is that all? Good. Class dismissed.
