Custom Firmware 3.03 OE Guide

This thread is designed to provide a both a guide for installing the 3.03 OE custom firmware, and a place to ask for help in the process. I've done what I can to make this guide as safe and as easy as possible, and I'm quite confident that if you follow this guide, the process of upgrading to 3.03 OE will be quite simple and completely harmless. However, I must remind you that there is always the slight chance that something can go wrong in the installation process, and you'll be left with a non-functioning PSP. I haven't heard any reports of this happening if you follow the directions exactly, but there is always the chance. Understand the risks associated with running this update, and know that if something goes wrong, you have nobody but yourself to blame.

All the files you'll need to install this update are included in this thread, as well as instructions on how to use them. All of the common questions I've received have been answered to the best of my ability in the appropriate section below. If you need any assistance installing this update, please don't hesitate to ask. Either I, or some of the other users here, will attempt to solve your problem.

How to install 3.03 OE-C on a 1.50 or 3.03 OE PSP
  1. Download and decompress 3.03 OE-C
  2. Copy the directories oeupdmaker and oeupdmaker% to /PSP/GAME/ if you are using 1.50, or to /PSP/GAME150 if you are using 3.0X OE
  3. Download the 1.50 Upgrade Eboot, name it "150.PBP", and put it in the oeupdmaker folder.
  4. Download the 3.03 Upgrade Eboot, name it "303.PBP", and put it in the oeupdmaker folder.
  5. On your PSP, run the 3.03 OE-C Update Maker program. This program will create a file called DATA.DXAR in the oeupdmaker folder
  6. Copy the directories 303oeflasher and 303oeflasher% to /PSP/GAME if you are using 1.50, or to /PSP/GAME150 if you are using 3.0X OE
  7. Move the generated DATA.DXAR from oeupdmaker to 303oeflasher directory
  8. On your PSP, run the 3.03 OE-C Firmware Install program. Your battery must be 75% full
  9. The program will display an agreement. Press X to accept and flash the custom firmware. Don't shutdown the PSP and don't remove the memory stick until the update is finished.
  10. Once finished, shutdown the psp and restart manually to 3.03 OE-C

Make sure you get the GTA with the 2.0 updater on it. Not the 2.60 updater.
