Ta-82 1.5 firmware downgrader released!


Recommended Posts

Yep, it's been confirmed on a couple different sites. At last, a chance for ta82 owners to downgrade. Sounds kind of scary at the moment, you can't upgrade again, and the firmware sounds a bit glitchy.

Personally, i'm going to wait a bit until a better version comes out with some bugfixes.

Damn, I woke up this morning hoping to find that all the problems were solved and that I could downgrade to 1.5. NOPE!

Just a big scam. That sucks big time. Why do people do this? Must be some big time loser to pull crap like this.

It works in that it does what it states.


However, it is fake in that a lot of what happens while 'downgrading' is bs, and resultantly you dont have a proper downgrade at the end.


Either way if I had a TA-082, I sure as hell would stick with HEN-D or just wait this one out.

Wiki: TA-082

The TA-082 motherboard blocks the user from flashing older firmware revisions onto its 32mb NAND flash memory, including 1.50.


This is a problem for homebrew developers and enthusiasts who choose to use homebrew applications and games, as this prevents them using known exploits to run homebrew EBOOTs.


Dark_Alex has found ways around this by creating HEN, Homebrew Enabler, for PSP's running firmware version 2.71. This has been confirmed to work on TA-082 motherboards, and can run 99.9% of kernel and user mode homebrew. The latest revision of HEN is HEN-D.


What exactly is being blocked is not yet known, although it's widely believed that it's a combination of the 1.50 IPL and the index.dat (which shows "FV1.50_0001" when unmodified).

And that's what Christmas is all abo... er... and that's why the TA-082 mobo sucks. :)
