    Got a friend here who got a brand new black 2000 PSP, when I use my pandora and MMS it comes on with a green light but doesn't take me to the Despertar Cementario menu. I'm using DC6, will DC8 help or are some Black 2000's unhackable?

    New slims are unhackable because of the TA_88v3 motherboard.

    Is there any way to differentiate between these two externally? Apparently his mom bought it at best buy a few weeks ago, so I guess that stock was the unhackable ones? I thought only the Blue Madden PSP's had the new motherboard and then they just stopped making 2000's afterwards.

    I am not sure in the US, as over in the UK, there are hardly any special edition PSP's.

    I think that you can tell by the date code under the battery whether it can be hacked, but I can't remember what it is, something like 8D and lower can be done.

    There *MIGHT* be a way to tell from the UPC codes on the box... but i'm not sure at all. Try google and see if theres a way to check from the box. I'm assuming you want a way to tell so you don't have to buy it, open the battery, THEN see if it can be hacked?

    Honestly, there are guides all over the net for different systems to know the difference based upon box info... dunno if that works for PSP or not, but Google is a friend [​IMG]

    Man, just open the battery cover and look at the date code. If it's 8B or below, it's hackable. 8C or above, not possible. Simple.
