    Are there any definite TA 088 v1 motherboard PSP Limited Editions out there, i heard the God of War bundle was TA088v1 but are there any others? I was looking at the silver Ratchet and Clank size Matters bundle.

    I thought the v2 and v3 were unhackable?

    The v2 is unhackable. The Madden PSP has the same motherboard and its unhackable. The Star Wars PSP is hackable though

    Only the TA-88v3 PSP 2000 has the unhackable motherboard. There's essentially no difference between the TA-88v1 and v2 PSP 2000's.

    the v2 are not pandora compatible so it's not hackable by that method. you shoud use the chickhen method and install the M33. so V2 are hackable using chickhen method and hellcat's recovery.

    No, you're incorrect. The TA-88v2 (and v1 for that matter) cannot make a Pandora using the softmod applications as the EEPROM write functionality has been disabled. It's perfectly "hackable" using a Pandora battery and Magic Memory Stick Combo.

    So the v1 and v2 can use but cannot make a Pandora Battery and the v3 can do neither?

    EDIT: Anyone found a UK Retailer selling the Crisis Core 2000 Bundle? I doubt there easy to find nowadays, i can't find any retailers anywhere.

    Impossible i'm afraid....i tried myself for ages until i gave up and looked for a second hand one in good condition. Managed to pick one up in March for £85 with Crisis Core and God Of War. Now i have a Silver PSP 2000 to partner my Black one....
