    This guide was originally on psphacks.com, created by: DWG21R. But it seems that it has 404'd, so i'll be reposting it here.


    These are all the motherboards that are in your psp's.



    PSP-1000:

    Motherboard: TA-079 V1
    Information: Found in the first launch PSPs. Ships with Version 1.00
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00140000, Baryon: 0x00306000, Pommel: 0x00000103
    Runs Custom Firmware? Of course, this is the PSP that shipped with Version 1.00 in which unsigned code could be run from! If it is updated to Version 1.51 or higher, custom firmware cannot be installed unless through the Pandora's Battery method.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? Yes, it does.


    Motherboard: TA-079 V2
    Information: Found in launch PSPs. Ships with Version 1.00/1.50
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00200000, Baryon: 0x00306000, Pommel: 0x00000103
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, all PSPs with a TA-079 motherboard can unless updated to Version 1.51 or higher. Up to Version 3.50, a downgrader can be used. Afterwards, the Pandora's Battery method must be used.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? Yes, it does.


    Motherboard: TA-079 V3
    Information: Found in launch PSPs. Ships with Version 1.00/1.50/1.51/1.52/2.00
    Technical Information:Tachyon: 0x00200000, Baryon: 0x00040600, Pommel: 0x00000103
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, all PSPs with a TA-079 motherboard can unless updated to Version 1.51 or higher. Up to Version 3.50, a downgrader can be used. Afterwards, the Pandora's Battery method must be used.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? Yes, it does.


    Motherboard: TA-081
    Information: This came out later after launch. It can natively run Version 1.50 like the previous PSPs. It most likely shipped with Version 2.00 or higher.
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00300000, Baryon: 0x00040600, Pommel: 0x00000103
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes it can be installed, through a downgrader running on to Version 3.50 or lower. Once downgraded, it can be updated to custom firmware. The other method to get to custom firmware is through the Pandora's Battery method.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? Yes, it does.


    Motherboard: TA-082
    Information: This one had a ClockGen change in the hardware. As a result of that, TA-082 models were bricking when downgraded to Version 1.50. Patching the the TA-082's key 0x05 in its idstorage will allow Version 1.50 to boot. Through the Pandora's Battery method, everything was patched properly to allow this PSP to be downgraded safely to Version 1.50. This model originally shipped with Version 2.60. It then shipped with Version 2.71 and then Version 2.80.
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00400000, Baryon: 0x00114000, Pommel: 0x00000112
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, when downgraded to Version 1.50, and through that version it can be updated to custom firmware. The other way to get custom firmware is through the Pandora's Battery method.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? Yes, it does.


    Motherboard: TA-086
    Information: This has everything that a TA-082 motherboard has. The difference between this and the TA-082 is that this one had a LCD change. s0nY added new LCD modules to this PSP. When safely downgraded to 1.50, it presents the user with a white screen, that is result of the LCD module change. Pressing the brightness button on this PSP fixes the problem when running Version 1.50 on this PSP. This was s0nY's last PSP-1000 motherboard before the release of the PSP-2000. PSPs with a TA-086 motherboard initially shipped with Version 2.81/2.71 (Unconfirmed) and later came with Version 3.51.
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00400000, Baryon: 0x00121000, Pommel: 0x00000112
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, after being downgraded to Version 1.50 using whatever method possible; this PSP then can be updated to custom firmware from Version 1.50. It can have custom firmware installed through the Pandora's Battery method.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? Yes, it does.



    PSP-2000:

    Motherboard: TA-085
    Information: It was found in the first PSP Slim models. It shipped with Version 3.60. It could not be downgraded to Version 1.50 because it would brick on that version and the hardware on this model was specifically made for later versions. Its idstorage was unlike of a PSP-1000, the PSP-2000 idstorage was encrypted.
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00500000, Baryon: 0x0022B200, Pommel: 0x00000123
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, but it can have custom firmware installed only through the Pandora's Battery method which unlocked service mode on the PSP. Through the Pandora's Battery method, any firmware version can be installed, and that includes custom firmware.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? Its the only PSP-2000 motherboard capable of doing so.


    Motherboard: TA-085 V2
    Information: This one is nearly identical to the TA-085 motherboard, but this one takes away the ability to make a Pandora Battery (battery EEPROM writing functions removed). This type of PSP shipped with Version 3.72, then Version 3.73, and finally Version 3.80
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00500000, Baryon: 0x00234000, Pommel: 0x00000123
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, but it can have custom firmware installed only through the Pandora's Battery method.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? No, battery writing functions were removed from this motherboard and all PSP motherboards afterwards.

    Motherboard: TA-088 V1
    Information: This one had a new feature addded to it. It had heatsink shielding added which would protect vital parts of the PSP if it overheated. This was once referred to as the "TA-085 V3". The PSP with a TA-088 motherboard shipped with Version 3.71, and then Version 3.80, then Version 3.90, and finally Version 3.95.
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00500000, Baryon: 0x00243000, Pommel: 0x00000123
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, but custom firmware only can be installed through the Pandora's Battery method.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? No.


    Motherboard: TA-088 V2
    Information: This one was a surprise from s0nY. It fails to boot the Pandora's Battery application Despertar del Cementerio (Universal Unbricker) that uses the 1.50 + 3.40 kernel subset. Despertar del Cementerio v1-v5 used the 1.50 + 3.40 kernel subset. The older PSP motherboards could run Version 1.50, but only with 3.40 hardware modules. This motherboard used a new CPU designed for higher firmwares so even Version 1.50 with 3.40 hardware modules could not load. This presented a problem as custom firmware installation on PSP-2000 models used the 1.50 + 3.40 kernel subset. Esteemed developer Dark_Alex released Despertar del Cementerio v6 to enable installation of custom firmware on the PSP with this motherboard. PSPs that shipped to stores with this motherboard came with either Version 3.90 or Version 3.95.
    Technical Information: Tachyon: 0x00500000, Baryon: 0x00243000, Pommel: 0x00000123
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, but custom firmware can only can be installed through the Pandora's Battery method.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? No.


    Motherboard: TA-088 V3
    Information: Known as the "unhackable PSP". It ships to stores with Version 4.00 or Version 4.01 or Version 4.05. It patched the exploit that the Pandora's Battery method used. It also added a new CPU and new motherboard layout.
    Runs Custom Firmware? No, so please don't ask if it does.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? No.


    Motherboard: TA-090 V1
    Information: The TA-090 V1 is found in refurbished PSPs. People began finding them when they got their after they sent their bricked/broken PSP-2000 models to get fixed by s0nY. The version it probably came with/returned to was Version 4.05. Very little is known about its Version. s0nY just updates the PSPs that were fixed to the latest version.
    Runs Custom Firmware? Yes, it is nearly identical to the TA-088 V2 motherboard, so custom firmware can be installed through the Pandora's Battery method. Just like the TA-088 V2, it fails to boot Despertar del Cementerio V5 and lower.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? No.



    PSP-3000:


    Motherboard: TA-090 V2
    Information: This is the motherboard found in retail/store bought PSP-3000 units. It patched the hardware exploit which the Pandora's Battery method used. This motherboard has a new layout just like the TA-088 V3 motherboard found in the PSP-2000. The new layout was s0nY's anticipatory move against people who hard-mod their PSPs. This motherboard also has a new IC (Internal Control) microchip which no longer allows a soft-modded and hard-modded Pandora Battery to autostart service mode on the PSP. This motherboard treats a Pandora Battery as either a regular or unknown battery. Considering that this motherboard blocks a Pandora Battery from starting the PSP, and it blocking the loading of the MagicStick IPL (Initial Program Loader); this is currently most secure motherboard known. And concering its firmware version, it shipped with Version 4.20 or Version 4.21 depending on the region.
    Runs Custom Firmware? No, it is secure and blocks the Pandora's Battery method; which is the only way to get custom firmware installed. Even if custom firmware is installed, it will brick the PSP with this motherboard, because the Custom IPL used in custom firmware is not compatible with its CPU (Central Processing Unit). Further study must be done on this motherboard before custom firmware can be installed on it.
    Makes a Pandora Battery? No.
