    I found my newer model of PSP easy to hack and I wanted to help a friend who has the older Model.

    It's a PSP1002 with system software 3.8.
    Can it be soft modded? I did read the hacking/modding FAQ but I just want to be sure.
    And, do I need to upgrade the software to 6,20 using the link provided in the tutorial?
    If I can upgrade to 6.20, do I just have to then download 6.20 pro and follow the installation steps?
    Is there a chance of bricking it?
    This model came with a 32 mb memory card. Can I use a 4g memory card?

    1) Yes, it can be softmodded. In fact, psp 1000s can do more, like unbricking using pandora battery (all 1000s and certain 2000s can; the other 2000s, psp 3000s and Go's can't)
    2) If you want to hack with 6.20 pro, you will have to update to 6.20 ofw first.
    3) Yes, once updated to 6.20 ofw, download 6.20 pro and install it.
    4) No; even if you did, you can unbrick your psp with a pandora battery.
    5) Yes; you can use up to 32gb.

    It has to be on 6.20 before you can install 6.20 PRO, since PRO is a modification of 6.20, it doesn't include 6.20 with it.

    No brick chance assuming the instructions are followed and you really are upgrading from a clean OFW.

    Yes a 4GB memory card will work.

    Thank-you. It's all much clearer now.
