    I've been thinking about getting a PSP to hack for a while, and finally have the expendable money to do so... too bad I didn't have it a couple weeks ago before the latest update was released.

    I've read all the charts saying what's fully hackable, what's partially hackable, etc, but I'm still a little lost. I want to softmod (so, no Pandora), and I (of course) want to spend as little money as possible. Which PSP model should I buy, and where would be a good place to get it from (if any)? Is there any way to be sure I'll be getting 6.39 or lower? Does it matter if I get higher than 6.39? Does the pope shit in the woods? Are bears Catholic? These questions and more will (hopefully) be answered.

    Any PSP is fine really, there is a very low chance you'll get a PSP with 6.40 higher.
    A brand new PSP would be the safest bet to get one 6.39 or lower, you never know with used.

    Also you want Hacking & Homebrew two doors down ALREADY MOVED.

    My only other question is, am I screwed if I get 6.40+, or are there alternatives to at least let me get some homebrew going on it?

    You can used "signed" homebrew, but it's got some disadvantages and many things cannot be "signed".

    if you mostly want to play games.

    Do as me. Buy a PSP 3004 and upgrade it to 6.60 OFW then flash it with the PRO 6.60 CFW.

    every time you power on your psp and want to play a backup you just run the fast recovery app and it goes into hack mode.

    im not sure how well homebrew works on it but gaming is a breeze.
