    I'm just wondering because i plan to buy my PSP and join all the PS1PSP player out there :P

    Any idea what the FW will be if i buy it in the stores next week? like will it be 1.5 or 2.x? Just one more thing ( i want 3.03 OE-? because i plan to play PS1 games too) how exactly do i avoid the Fw upgrading? like is there a prompt where it will ask me to upgrade to the newest Fw when i turn it on for the first time? or is it purely Manuel? like the only way to upgrade is if you do it by hooking it to your PC. because i dont want to accidentally upgrade and not be able to downgrade T_T :P just in case. :P thanks in advance.








    P.S.: please mind my noob-ness been waiting to have enuff $$ to get a PSP since it first came out :P its just the excitement that i'll finally be able got one :P

    There are diffrent firmwares in diffrent stores. I found a 1.5 once, just looking at what they had. Also, I think you should get 3.40 OE-A because it has increased pops support for ps1 games. You can upgrade if you have wifi. You have to actually go to the network update section and do it, also there are many confirmation screens.

    Indeed, now days it's pretty easy to avoid upgrading. Just don't click "Yes I do want to upgrade" on your PSP ever and you're set.

    There are letter codes on the boxes in the stores, if the letter near the barcode says anything from A to N then it's 3.03 or below. Anything after that is 3.10 or higher I beleive.

    I use 3.40 oe-a and it works so great with everything I use it for

    Yes 3.40oe-a have ps1 and wifi without devhook.

    You do want a v1.5 because you can just upgrade from v1.5 to any of the custom firmware. IF u do get v3.03, you will need to downgrade it to v1.5...So basically, if u get anything lower than v3.03 your good. Also here is how you determine the version by looking at the box

    Also, if you get anything from 2.81-3.03 then you will need a copy of the unpatched GTA: LCS

    I just went to a target by me and got a 2.6 Ta 82, just go to a store that no one really goes to and I'm sure their stock will be old enough to be a downgradable firmware
