    Can any of my fellow Tempers help me find a CFW PSP slim. My Price range is 100-130+shipping. All help would be appreciated.

    That price may be too low... I have seen them for $210 refurbished...

    Try Ebay...

    I'm willing to go higher but 210 is way too much, I guess I will have too look some more.

    That seems to be the price for a slim.

    Phat is much cheaper... You will find a Phat for that price.

    I'm not picky. I just need to make sure I don't mess up and get a psp that can't be hacked, a phat psp won't be a problem.

    Buy one of the special edition PSP's and hack it yourself. There are lots of them on ebay for around that price if you don't mind buying from ebay.

    Yes I do not mind buying from ebay. Can I get a clue at what special edition I am looking for?

    Be careful that it is a "real" special edition -- and not one with a chinese knockoff case (refurbished -- with any random mobo)...

    Daxter Limited Edition or God of War Limited Edition PSP's are always hackable.

    Ok, I will check out what ebay has if I find something can I link it to see what you guys think?

    EDIT: Would this do as it is on 4.05?

    No, you don't need a pandora battery unless the firmware is higher than 5.03.

    Depends. You can do it via softmod, but that can be quite tricky.

    Pandora is only $6 or so. It's not much to spend...

    The only tricky part is getting Chickhen to work. After that it is very easy.

    Can't I just update to CFW if I am below the firmware?

    if you have any mobo that is not TA088v3 you can put CFW on it -- firmware is irrelevant...

    Without a pandora you need a firmware no higher than 5.03 and you need to use Chickhen. Chickhen can take some patience to get working but you only have to do it once.
