    Hi everyone.

    I have had my psp slim for about 3-4 years now. I decided I wanna try to hack my psp in order to d/l all the oldschool classic games. I've been doing my research about How-to's threads in here. In doin so I have a few simple questions that some of you may care to help.

    Here's a little info about my psp:
    -The model is psp2001
    -OFW is at current 6.20

    Questions:

    1- How can I tell if my psp slim is one of the 'unhackable' ones? I dont have the box for it anymore either.

    2- If I attempt to hack anyway, can i still do it if my OFW 6.20? Is their a way to downgrade to the latest CFW?

    -thanks it for now, TIA

    1. - http://www.pspmod.com/forums/psp-beg...-hackable.html

    2. - if you attempt to hack and it is unhackable you will brick it.

    3. - if it is hackable you will need a pandora/mms because you are over 5.03

    don't think of it as a downgrade though.

    yes order a pandora and you can flash your psp to cfw. i suggest just using rain's to make the mms, that will put you on m33-4 then you can go straight to GEN-D3 from there. it sounds hard but it is simple i promise

    don't order it from here. if you already have a memory stick check to see if it is magicgate supported by going to pictures on the psp, scoll down to memory card hit triangle then information. if it says magicgate supported then you have a card good enough to be a mms

    It's a fake card. Just get a cheap 512 MB card for the Pandora.

    Yea. You only need the Magic Memory Stick (your cheap 512MB) for the hacking.

    Also I just want to double check on something. I read in the sticky thread 'psp-hacking for dummies' by thesexyone. in Step 2

    2. HOW TO KNOW YOUR PSP's MOBO

    PSP 2000 TA-88v3 and PSP 3000 have the same "hacking" limitations: they MUST be on ofw 5.03 or lower, if your psp is either of the before mentioned motherboards, and it has an ofw higher than 5.03, it is completely unmoddable.
    ^
    does he mean this by what the original ofw the psp came w/ wen i bought it? or by what you have currently installed?

    I checked my psp to see if its catorgized to be hackable, and it is. but my current ofw is at 6.20 --seagrtj said its possible using pandora/mms but thesexyone says its not. which one do i go by?

    i answered that question in his pm, guys. I'll make it clear on my thread that the 2k ta-88v3 happens to be the unhackable version.
