Once downgraded always downgraded?

Recommended Posts

My question is concerning the issue of downgrading a psp and putting on a custom firmware. i really want to play my psx games on psp but, I still may want to buy some games.

 

Guess I should get to the point... Are you able to play games that are on UMDs with a homebrew psp and not have to worry about the required upgrades some game have you do to play them. For example Monster Hunter, when it first came out, required that you update to 2.50. So, for future games such as FFVII Crisis Core would I HAVE to download to play it, or could I just purchase it and not worry about the update or anything of the such.

 

I tried to word this best I could. I am green when it comes to homebrewing the psp, and before I make the leap of homebrewing it, I want to be sure that I can still buy games and play them like I would with a normal psp. :)

 

Thanks!

Basically how it works is this;

 

You 'downgrade' to version 1.50. Then, you install a Custom Firmware, which mostly needs 1.50 to install. Custom Firmwares are based on real Sony firmwares and let you use games that require those.

 

For example, if you installed 3.50 M33, you can play games that require upto 3.50. Same goes for lower or higher CFWs. The current highest is based on 3.71, and work on a 3.80 CFW is currently underway.

 

So yeh, you can have a homebrew PSP and still run the latest games if you have the latest CFW.

One more little question... If I use a psp to create the pandora battery, could that one be restored to its original "legal" state? I ask because I may have to use someone else's psp to create the pandora to downgrade mine. Some people may not want their psp to be so...how can I say this...dirty?

If you want to get rid of your custom firmware, just use the Network Update feature on your PSP to get the latest official firmware.

Can you then upgrade straight from CFW 3.50 to 3.71 or a higher version, or would you have to downgrade back to 1.5 then upgrade?

You can straight upgrade- no need to go back.

Hmm, i have same question. I have a friend who has 3.10 OE something.

 

So, basically he can just update to 3.52 M33 then just apply the update version 4 right?
