You cannnnot downgrade a PSP Series 3000 at ALL! Any attempt too do so WILL fry the motherboard.

I do DO NOT reccommend that you upgrade your PSP FW too 6.20. Leave your FW wherever version it is, and if you need help modding/homebrewing consult me, I WILL help you.



psp-100X= all are hackable regardless of firmware with the use of PANDORA.
psp-200X= old ones are fully hackable with pandora(3.95 and below) and new ones are semi-hackable if ur firmware is 5.03 or lower(or strickly homebrew if above 5.03 firmware)
psp-300X= all are semi-hackable unless ur firmware is above 5.03, then it is only homebrew/emulators
psp-GO = you can run homebrew and emulators BUT NO ISO/CSO games!


TA-088v3 & PSP3000 - FAQ

Ok I created because I have seen threads created every other day asking whether the PSP 3000 or the TA-88v3 motherboard had been hacked yet so I decided to create this thread. Please feel free to post new questions I should add.

1. Has the PSP 3000 been hacked yet?
YES, with 5.03 official firmware + chickHEN-R2 + "CFW 5.03GEN-A for HEN" or "CFWEnabler3.60" = temporary custom firmware including the use of iso/cso/ps1/homebrew plus much more!

2. Has the PSP 2000 with the TA-88v3 Motherboard been hacked yet?
YES, with 5.03 official firmware + chickHEN-R2 + CFWEnabler3.60 = temporary custom firmware including the use of iso/cso/ps1/homebrew plus much more!

3. What PSPs are currently hackable?
All the PSP 1000s also known as the PSP Phats are hackable with PANDORA battery and magic memcard regardless of firmware.
All the PSP 2000s or slims are hackable(with PANDORA) except the ones with the TA-88v3 Motherboard(but with 5.03 official firmware + chickHEN-R2 + CFWEnabler3.60 = temporary custom firmware including the use of iso/cso/ps1/homebrew plus much more!.)
All the PSP 3000s with 5.03 firmware or lower (5.03 official firmware + chickHEN-R2 + "CFW 5.03GEN-A for HEN" or "CFWEnabler3.60"= temporary custom firmware including the use of iso/cso/ps1/homebrew plus much more!)


4 What PSP model do I have?
Ok with this as with the region you have you have to check the sticker at the bottom there at then end you will find one of the following:

PSP-100X This is the first PSP model the Phat
PSP-200X This is the second model the PSP Slim
PSP-300X This is the third and most recent model also known as the PSP Brite

5. What region is my PSP?
For this you have to look for the number at the end of the serial code I guess its called at the sticker at the bottom.
It should be something like 100?, 200?, or 300?. Look at the last number. The last number refers to the region it belongs to.
So basically look at the last number and compare it to this.
psp-100X x=region of psp (usa,japan,eur, etc.)
same for psp-200X and psp-300X

PSP-1000-Japan
PSP-1001-US/North America
PSP-1002-Austrila/New Zealand
PSP-1003-UK
PSP-1004-Europe
PSP-1005-Korea
PSP-1006-Hong Kong/Singapore
PSP-1007-Taiwan
PSP-1008-Russia
PSP-1009-China
Thanks ilostchild for the info!



6. What is a Magic Memory Stick MMS?
Here's the definition from the PSP Dictionary
Citar:
Magic Memory Stick: (MMS) An Memory Stick with the necessary files to boot with a JigKick Battery.
More in depth its a memory stick with the necessary files and formatted in a way which with a jigkick battery it can be used to install CFW on most PSPs.
