    I was thinking of trading my black PSP3000 for my friend's red God of War PSP2000. My friend doesn't know a thing about CFW, so this would be an advantage for me. I'm gonna install CFW via ChickHEN (if he hasn't updating his OFW beyond 5.03) but I have one question. Do the red God of War PSP2000s have one of those unhackable motherboards? How can I tell if it does? If he has updated his OFW beyond 5.03, I'm gonna try my other friend's black PSP, but I still wanna check if it has an unhackable motherboard or not. If anyone could help, I'd really appreciate it. [​IMG]

    Yes you can hack the Red God Of War PSP. And why trade when you can just hack the PSP 3000 now....

    It's a limited addition [​IMG] why wouldn't you.

    But yeah, just for the heads up, you can no officially have CFW on a PSP3000

    No you can't...and Skyline didn't you ask this yesterday (and didn't i give you the same answer then?) A GoW PSP will probably have a TA-088v1 or 2 and so will be fine for CFW.

    You can TEMPORARILY have CFW on 3000. But every time you turn on, you have to load ChickHEN, THEN load CFW - lot of hassle.
    You can check the mobo version with a little homebrew called PSPident 0.4. Just load ChickHEN and run PSPident. If you have ta88v3, DON'T FLASH. Otherwise, you should be good to go.

    Yeah I know you can only have CFW on a 3000 as long as you shut it off to standby. Completely shut it off or lose battery power and you have to reload it. I don't think I asked this yesterday, xist, but I could be wrong. My memory's a little fuzzy right now. [​IMG] Here's to hoping that my friend didn't update his PSP's firmware beyond 5.03 though! And Maz is right, I want the red PSP because a) it's limited edition and b) it will be a permanent installation, not just a temporary thing like it would be on the 3000.

    Hah, there's my problem. At 12:07 AM I don't even remember what I was doing. I was so tired, and even then I stayed up until like 5 AM. [​IMG]
