    but i aint sure, the chance that it is a flashable is 50-50 if not the box is so you can see the letter, and if it is the letter a-f its hackable and if it is the letter g it is unhackable, sure? is the screen a so big difference? im so pissed of! im asking my friend and he says a psp-3000 is the better, but he doesnt care of a hack or not, but you guys do, im pissed of!

    Just get a used one. I grabbed a used Slim off ebay a couple weeks ago that was being sold as-is because the UMD drive didn't work anymore. So I copped it for $61 shipped, flashed it, and now have a fully functional Slim at half the retail price [​IMG]

    its decided, ive found a psp in a shop wich haved a e marking on the label, so i will buy that in a few weeks i think, but 2 questions
    1. can i safely uppgrade to cfw and continue with that for some time with a 8 gb memory stick, or can you just do that with an 1-4 gb, i think i read that somewhere
    2.it comes with ofw 3.90, can i upgrade it to the newest ofw and download demos, and then when i are tired for that, i chipp it, but it is safe to upgrade to ofw 5.xx and i still can chip it?
    thanks for all your help
