    They still have the same motherboard if they are higher than 5.03.
    And AFAIK, the motherboards are known as semi-hackable.

    If the OP read my guide that I linked to in my post, he would of known that he cannot use semi-cfw.

    edit: and with this question popping up every two or three days, it gets boring having to repeat yourself OVER and OVER again.

    Those motherboards may be known as semi-hackable, but they are ONLY semi-hackable with the 5.03 firmware. I know I am being anal-retentive here ;-) but this small detail should be stressed IMHO, as it can save many people from frustration if they buy a 3000 with a higher firmware version and find out they cannot play isos on it.

    That's what they get for not searching or at least reading the stickys.

    GBA: gPSP emulator, works 100% smooth on most games.*
    PS1: pops, built-in emulator made by sony, most games work, all run smooth, but you need to convert images to eboot format first. *1
    haven't checked nes/snes yet but those should work too.

    even old PC games can be made to work using dosbox(old=DOS era though)*

    DS is possible as well, but only at unplayable speeds.
    N64 works too(daedalus, not very stable though), and pretty much any console older than the ones listed here.*




    *:can work on newer firmwares using homebrewloader, but this requires very specific PSN bought games with hacked saves

    *1
    :works on official firmware too, but only with games supplied by sony through PSN
