    Hello, i've been reading a lot of guides in this website but there is something that I dont really get. I dont know if this is due to my English or if its simply too obvious to add, but whatever reason here is my question:


    A lot of tutorials say that in order to successfully install CFW on a PSP slim you need to have a motherboard thats not TA88v3 or above (Im talking about the CFW install that involves using ChickHen and OFW 5.03. My question is simply this: Does the motherboard rule also apply for the 300x PSP models? Or do all the PSP 300x models work with this technique as long as it haves OFW 5.03?

    Also, the reason I ask this is because i'm thinking of buying a PSP 300x and I don't really know what I need to know in order to buy a "modifiable" PSP, and I dont even know how I as a customer can get such information like what Firmware/motherboard the PSP I plan to buy have. Its hard for me as a customer to get such information from people who works on all these game-stores. The only people who actually need this kind of information is the hackers/modders.

    So if you know any stores or auction on ebay or something that actually sell the perfect PSP for modding please tell me.

    Thanks

    Edit:
    Woops, wrong forum section, sorry about that.

    i would either buy a phat psp aka 1000 or limited edition 2000 like the god of war psp the daxter psp the the vader psp they are all fully hackable with a magic memory stick and pandora battery

    as for the 3000 brand new will come with 6.20 or higher and as of now there unhackable but there is supposed to be a 6.20 hen dropin around xmas but its still a temp cfw i dont think the 3k will ever see a full cfw but if you do want a 3000 try to find it with 5.03ofw so you can run chickenhen then 5.03 gen-c

    your best bet is ebay or maybe look in the market place section here

    Avoid all PSP 3000's, avoid Black PSP 2000's, go for either PSP 1000's or Silver PSP 2000's or limited edition PSP 2000's.

    But some Black PSP 2k with the correct mobo are fully hackable right?

    So EVERY SINGLE silver psp 2k, limited edition psp 2k, god of war psp 2k, blue
    pal, ntcs, jap
    EVER CREATED, are hackable?

    I think ill go for a 2k one. Screw the 3k

    A few more questions:
    If I manage to get a hackable PSP 2k, will I be able to run backups on newer games like KH:BBS that requires the newer versions of OFW or will it ask for an update like the ps3? How does it work?
    Will I be able to run UMD like normal after I have installed custom firmware?
    Will I be able to go online and play multiplayer games?

    thank you very much

    fair enough. hacking does NOT take any features away, it only adds them. so yes, you will be able to play umd's, the only restriction is their required firmware (umd's come with updates, that's the fw it requires) as far as I know, the furthest compatible is m33(or Gen) -Prometheus-2, which covers until 6.30.

    As for online, i believe you mean Infrastructure, which very few games support. You will need a plugin called PSNlover for that, else it won't let you log on to PSN.

    any other questions?

    Actually, yes. If I connect to the PSN with a "hacked" PSP. Will I break any policies with Sony? Will I run the risk of getting banned? Is it risky to sign in with my original PSN account which I use to buy game/play on my PS3? Should I make a new one?
