A PSP Downgrade Can Occasionally Backfire Dreadfully

Aug 17, 2007
PSP downgrade has become a very common marvel among population who own PSPs, for who wouldn't like to convert their gaming consoles into elaborate multimedia centers that can play any type of games and movies, download homebrew games freely from the Internet, store and play music, be compatible with the PC and also be used as a handheld worldwide remote control device? Indeed, the many benefits of a PSP downgrade are making person reckless and go ahead with the process.

Websites like pspvideoguide provide good and easy videos for people who want to go in for a PSP downgrade. Even a high school student can comprehend these videos and use them to downgrade their PSP and enhance it immensely. But then, many times PSP downgrades go seriously wrong. Occasionally, the PSP gets totally bricked, i.e. blocked, and cannot be used at all any more. This happens when people do not take the due precautions necessary for the PSP downgrade.

Here are some of the things you want to keep carefully in mind before going in for a PSP downgrade. Read them carefully:

(i) Check and then doubly check that the downgrade process you are using is for the same version your PSP is. If you use a wrong type of downgrader, then you will end up blocking your PSP permanently, i.e. bricking it. For example, if your PSP is a version 2.6, and you are trying it with the downgrader for version 2.8, then your PSP will be bricked.

(ii) Observe the video provided to you very properly. You will need a PC, a USB data cable and, of course, the correct downgrading software program. If you mess up with any of these and in fact do not follow the instructions properly, then you may do something fearfully wrong and may lose your PSP for ever.

(iii) PSP downgrade can be done only if the PSP is of version below 3.03. You cannot attempt to downgrade any PSP which is of a higher version. First of all, there is no downgrading software for them. Secondly, if you use some other version's downgrading software. You will brick your PSP forever.

However, despite all the risks involved, it is very useful to go ahead with a PSP downgrade. The benefits obtained by a PSP downgrade clearly outweigh all the risk factors involved. But you must bear in mind that with a downgraded PSP, you will be tempted to store much more data on it, so you will need to invest in a great capacity memory stick as well; the normal 32 MB memory stick provided with it will certainly not be worth much.
