How To Downgrade PSP In Simple Steps

Aug 17, 2007
PSP, or the PlayStation Portable, is one of Sony's leading products, which has really caught on like wildfire among the gaming people of the world. It is only lately that PSP owners have realized that their Playstation Portable can be much more than just a handheld gaming console. It can be made to store music and movies, play them in any format, download games from the Internet and play them, and even be used as a worldwide remote control. All this can be done with the process known as downgrade.

Though the word 'downgrade' seems highly technical, it is very easy to downgrade PSP in reality. The whole process of downgrading a Playstation Portable doesn't take any more than ten minutes. And you will want to have only a mini cable wire and a personal computer to do the task. In fact, downgrading a PSP is as easy as loading pictures from your digital camera to your computer. If you know how to do that, then downgrading your PSP will become a very easy task for you to do.

The following is a step-by-step instruction guide of how to go about downgrading your PSP:

(i) The first step to downgrade PSP is to check the version of the PSP. This can be done when the Playstation Portable is turned on. Go to settings, and then to system settings. Then click on system information. This will show the version of the PSP. Recognize that PSPs only under version 3.03 can be downgraded.

(ii) Then you want to connect the PSP to the computer with the help of the mini USB cable. The computer must give you the 'new hardware found' notification. Wait for the PC to identify the new hardware.

(iii) When this is done, you need to run the downgrader software (make doubly sure that the downgrader is the correct version for the PSP). Once this is done, the downgrader will install all the necessary files on the PSP.

Once the downgrade PSP files are installed on the PSP, the Playstation Portable has been suitably downgraded. Now the PSP is unlocked to play whatever homebrew games you may download, and perform all the features of that a full-fledged multimedia system can do.

Downgrading a PSP is a very simple thing to do, and you do not have to be hardware or a software expert to do it. The above-mentioned things are all that you have to do. In case you want this process to be simplified still further, then all you have to do is to open the site pspvideoguide and order one of their very simple demonstrative videos to tell you how to go about the downgrade PSP process.
