    PSP Custom Firmware ....... Modding in a Shop - Central/NW London

    Anyone know a shop or stall in London where I can take my PSP and get the firmware altered to a Dark Alex homebrew or 1.5, in a while-u-wait kind of service?

    I am too scared of bricking my PSP and I don't really facing sending it to folks on eBay.

    Any idea on how much it might cost?

    Thanks in advance!

    2.71 - with no modifications

    I want to play GTA Vice City Stories but I understand that my current F/W will need to upgrade to 2.81 as soon as I put the UMD in.

    I bought LCS and VCS at the same time ..... I am nearly finished with LCS.

    w3rdage- just go to [url]www.psp-hacks.com[/url] and follow the advice *exactly* and you can't go wrong.

    Upgrade to 2.80 first and then follow the guide from there. First downgrade to 1.50 (lethal part) and then upgrade to 3.40 OE-A. If you make a brick (with your PSP or otherwise http://i18.tinypic.com/53ua4p0.gif ) you always have the option of using a mod chip which fixes everything. I was going to offer to do it for you free of charge but am unavailable at present.

    I wouldn't bother with letting a shop do it, even if its only a small price.

    You can easily do it yourself for FREE. You've got the LCS game which is required (atleast for some versions) for the downgrade so you'll be fine.

    I wrote a guide a while ago; projectpsp.com/for…844

    Instead of going to 3.03 you can goto 3.40 OE-A or whatever version you wish (3.40 OE-A is the newest and 'best'). Or just use Blanco's advice.

    Unfortunately for me my LCS is the patched version.

    I got it from Play ....... the case is the same as the unpatched version but my UMD has the dreaded #2 at the end ...... and the 2.60 f/w update.

    Thanks to all for the links, I will read through and decide whether I am brave enough!
