    Try here: http://www.psp-vault.com/index.psp

    But... I don't think you can downgrade from anything higher than 2.81 at the moment:( .

    What about that thingy you can install to switch between multiple stored firmware versions? I'd love to be more helpful, but seeing as I don't need one of these...

    Try the official PSP forums at playstation.com. Be careful with the downgrader though, I'm pretty sure 3.02 is not cracked yet.

    Oh well, I was hoping to play SNES and PSX game on my memory stick. I'll stick with Dungeon Siege and Ghosts N Goblins for now.

    What was the name of the NES MEgaman Remake?

    I'm an even bigger tool. I bought a PSP and upgraded the firmware the 3.03. D'OH!!

    I'm so disappointed with my PSP overall that I plan on selling it or trading it in for DS games. It is an okay system, but right now there aren't many spectacular games. Sure, there may be some great games but the games sell the system (as does system price, and other important factors) but there aren't enough stand out games.

    If you want to hear more of my PSP, Sony and videogame related rant, just PM me.

    Dont worry everyone. PSP firmware has been cracked up to version 3.03. They're working on a firmware decrypter at the moment. But there is a catch. You need the first version of GTA:LCS to use the crack.

    Wasn’t there a thing about downgrades not working with PSPs that have the newest motherboard? Or has that been worked around.

    It seems to be out of stock at all stores in my town, which sucked. I had planned to get it with my extra gift cards, and by then they were all gone.

    Well I'll be looking for it because It, Justice LEague, Marvel Alliance and Ghosts N Goblins are the only official games I really wanna play.

    There is a downgrader now for the ta-082 boards. Sadly, if you're at 3.03 you are stuck there for the moment but they are close.
