i got a full refund for my bricked psp and now im going to buy a new one. But in the UK are all the ones on shelves ta-082? how about white psps?

September 3rd, 2006, 10:28
they will be ta-082 as well

September 3rd, 2006, 11:23
so every psp i will see in shops will be ta-082?

aside from those 1.00s to 2.01s yes highly likely anything with firmware 2.5 and above would be ta-082

maybe u could try ebay? or any other online shopping sute like lik-sang or playasia etc?

well i don't have any cards to use on online shopping so i might have to risk buying one and hoping its not ta-082.

If you buy it in a shop now you'll most likely get a ta-082.
Where I live it's possible to buy pre-paid credit card, maybe you can get one of those and buy a 1.5 off ebay.

i live in wales in the UK, hopefully the UK hasn't got many ta-082's yet. And there is also a complicated way to downgrade one.

Downgrade a ta-082? really?

September 3rd, 2006, 12:02
yes however it is difficult and takes around 45 minutes and has a high chance of bricking. So does anyone know if there are ta-082's in the UK?
