    I'll start off by telling the stupidest story I've ever told. I had a 2.0 psp. I upgraded to 2.71 (>.<) becuase I wanted to view flash stuff. (now heres the kicker) I upgraded AGAIN to 2.8 for the god damn world tour soccer demo. I played it for about 2 minutes and had to wait about an extra two months from upgrading from 2.1 to 2.8. Anyone got any more retarted reasons?

    Yes...I am way to lazy to make a real signature.

    My friend upgraded to fw 3.01 cuz on the sony site you could download free "iso" demos of games.

    I upgraded to 2.00 because of the web browser. Then waited for the downgrader.

    I upgraded my 2.5 to 2.6 because they say they it'll lower the brick risk when downgrading

    Sigh... back in the days i didnt know i could not load homebrews in FWs higher than 1.50. And so I thought the "latest" FW update must be positive or I thought that the psp was meant to act as a pocket pc that allow home made applications. Well as a result I upgraded my psp to 2.5, immediately discovered that I could no longer run homebrew games then i research on the interent and found psp-hacks.com forum... Felt stupid and realizing that I am fuk up, I continued reading more posts and I found out about someone mentioning after nearly 8 months of exploit in FW 2.0 hackers were able to release a downgrader just not too long ago.

    It would then be logical to think a downgrader for 2.5 would take at least 8 months to produce if not longer and for that reason I am convinced to give up "waiting" for one, so I upgrade my psp to 2.70 to play the UMD I bought.

    But everything turned out the pleasant, magnificent way when I came back to US after spending my summer vacation in Hong Kong. Not too long later, there was a confirmed safe downgrader made for 2.71. Of course without hesitation I downgraded my psp (it was about 8 months from FW2.5 to the born of 2.71 downgrader)!! It was the most memorable experience and moment to me in psp world, I highly respect Dark Alex for his holy work.
