View Full Version : newbie look for a little assurance

Hello all
This is my first post on this forum so please be gentle with me.

I have just got my wife to get me a psp and i am going to downgrade the firmware to 1.5.The psp was brought for toysrus and is a 1003 running 2.71.I have read a lot of stuff on the forum and believe i have the right stuff to do it.I have down loaded TA-082 downgrader i believe this is the right one for my machine.In the read me doc it mentions hen-d.what is hen-d do all 2.71's run this and more importent does mine.I know i'm going on a bit but i am easily confused and can not afford to get this wrong my wife would beat me to death with a big stick.

p.s is there any other software i need or you would recommend:confused:

Google search Hen-D.

Follow the readme to install it.

Open the hen folder in the photo menu and it will load, then you can use the downgrader.

Thank you parkermauney for such a swift reply.I am going to do that right now.:)

Let us know if you run into problems.

Hi mate its me again. I can't make sense of this. I downloaded the file "11444_hend".The folder has 3 folders in it they are named checkworks,devhook and MS_ROOT .The only read me file is in the devhook folder it read
"This is HEN enabler D for devhook.
(it enables kernel homebrew written for 2.71 to be run with devhook).

Simply copy the folder dh to your root, overwriting the files."

Do i do this before i down grade to 1.5 or before?

I just don't get it at all

July 8th, 2007, 21:05
im a little unsure about this but ive heard the 2.80 downgrader is the most stable for ta-082 motherboards.

oh and put that folder in the root before and bouble check everything that you have done to make sure it wont brick and i think with that downgrader you need the idstorage fixer to avoid problems

July 8th, 2007, 22:09
only me again i have got the HEN-D working and am looking for the official sony 1.50 eboot and cant find it.When i get it do i have to rename it UPDATE.PBP . Thank you for all the advice

July 8th, 2007, 22:22
Grab it at http://dl.qj.net
Go to psp, firmwares, page 1, and you'll find it.

Get the PBP file and follow the instructions in the readme, it's either that you put update.pbp in the dg folder, or you put eboot.pbp in PSP/GAME/UPDATE, just look at the readme.

Great News i now have a 1.5 psp. Thank you all very much now to find out what i have to do now to play games and view movies from my memory stick. Thank you again i really appreciate it:thumbup:

July 8th, 2007, 23:57
first of all id recommend getting straight up to 3.40 oe

July 9th, 2007, 00:55
i've been looking for the 3.40 oe firmware with out much luck could you please point me in the right direction.
Does the fact that i have a TA-082 make any difference to any upgrades i do now

July 9th, 2007, 02:04
just use google for 3.40 oe easy installer as it comes prepacked with all the files, and no the fact you have a ta-082 should not affect future upgrades as my brother has the same motherboard and has not had any problems

July 9th, 2007, 02:18
Actually, google "3.40 OE-A Winstaller"

July 9th, 2007, 09:14
Thank you once again for all your advice I now have 3.4oe psp. Now to find out about where to put games and films and stuff:thumbup:

try out a homebrew. My 1st was fileAssistant , still use it often..

July 9th, 2007, 15:09
try out a few good homebrews such as snes9xtyl me, gpsp, genesis psp and homers rin

July 9th, 2007, 15:59
emulators for psp

July 9th, 2007, 17:04
If you want to try a good homebrew game, search for metal blob solid psp.

It's the greatest port I've ever played for psp.

You put the homebrew folder(s) in PSP/GAME150
