    Hi there people. I hope someone can clear up this confusion for me.

    I have a PSP with Firmware 2.69. I am looking to eventually run some emulators etc, but i appear to be stuck at the first hurdle.

    After lookng through the threads, i was about to download the 2.71 official firmware, before downgrading to 1.5. I could only find the US fw. Is this compatible with my UK PSP or do i need to look for a specific fw?

    Sorry if this sounds n00bish, i certainly didn't mean it to!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    hello mate, you can safely use the us version for your region ! when you upgrade to 2.71 its important to know what type of motherboard you have !!
    if you have a ta-082/086 you can follow my guide down on my sig.

    Thanks for the help. I have checked the mobo and it doesn't have the number which denotes a TA-082. YAY i should be ok with the upgrade to 2.71. Thats one step down, many left to go....!!

    I downgraded from 3.5 last night and I am from the UK. I used the US 1.5 update file and it was fine

    Yes just set your language settings to english and make sure that you have a US or UK Lumines. Support for Japanese Lumines will come soon.
