    He might be lying, it is Craigslist after all.
    3000 are semi-hackable if it's under 5.03 firmware, anything over and it's not.

    It can provided it has ofw 5.03 (or lower so you can flash to 5.03) so it can run ChickHen and then run 5.03 GEN-C or whatever you choose as your semi CFW.

    You should go ask that guy for details though.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    If it's a hackable PSP-3000 model, then it will be able to do whatever a hacked PSP-1000 or 2000 model can do.

    But even if the firmware is v5.03 or below, you can't fully hack a PSP-3000 because once you shut it off, the console will reset to the official firmware and you'll have to re-hack it when you turn it back on. Not a biggie, but it's just a hassle to go through this procedure every time you turn on the PSP.

    You can get around this by never turning your PSP off completely (just put it in standby mode).

    I think $100 for a PSP-3000 is a good deal (assuming the seller is telling the truth about its hackability and that the console is in good condition). I paid $100 for a used PSP-1000, but it was only opened and played once by the original owner, and then it sat in its box in a closet untouched for 5 years so it was in practically mint condition when I got it.

    You should definitely ask the seller more questions, as BoxShot has already said. Be wary of Craigslist, a lot of serial killers use it [​IMG]

    There's one in the trade section right now. [​IMG] It is 100% hackable and the guy says he already has GEN D-3 on it.

    You could try get that.

    Depends on how much you're willing to pay, but there are a lot on Amazon.

    Only problem is that there's a risk of getting one of those unhackable PSP-2000s [​IMG]

    *EDIT*
    Or you could just do what BoxShot suggested.

    if you do stick with the 3000 and it has 6.xx OFW, you could use the patapon save data exploit and use halfbyte loader. You can't play illegal roms though but you can run many emulators already.

    This is why I'm glad I've got my 1001. I'd definitely say skip the 3000 and find yourself a 1000 or 2000.
