    Hey guys,

    I recently have been thinking of getting a PSP 1000 pre-owned (for around £70 or so) but I have a few questions -
    How risky is it hacking / softmodding a PSP 1000?
    Can I hack it no matter what the firmware is as long as it is a PSP 1000?
    I have seen adapters such as "SDHC to Pro Duo Adapter" for PSP memory and such, would these cards still load ISO's and backups etc. ?
    How easy is it to recover from a brick?
    Is there a huge difference between teh 1000 and 2000?
    Whats the online play for PSP like?

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    -Cameron.

    Not at all.

    Can I hack it no matter what the firmware is as long as it is a PSP 1000?

    Yes.

    I have seen adapters such as "SDHC to Pro Duo Adapter" for PSP memory and such, would these cards still load ISO's and backups etc. ?

    Yes.

    How easy is it to recover from a brick?


    Buy a TOOL battery.
    That way, if you brick it, you can always fix it.

    Is there a huge difference between teh 1000 and 2000?

    Yes. Price. Also size and screen quality.

    Whats the online play for PSP like?

    Dunno.

    Ah, so I won't have to worry about getting a certain memory card? Any one that fits into the PSP will do?

    & is it worth getting a 2000 you think or should I just get the 1000? Is the price difference really worth it?

    Oh and also, where would you recommend I buy a "Pandora's Battery" for a PSP phat from? Are PSP "tool battery's" and "pandora's" battery's the same?

    I love my 2000. 1000 looks too bulky in my opinion.

    2000 may cost approx $100-$150 more than 1000.

    It's up to you.

    You can create a MMS with an official memory card.
    And buy a pandora battery from DX or Amazon.

    I bought that, it works great. :3

    Also, I don't recommend buying from eBay since it might be fake. You need an official one. (Wait until you buy the PSP, you might get a memory card with it)

    To answer your online play question, it's dead.
    The only game where you can find a game is Phantasy Star Portable 2, but that will probably die soon.

    Yup.

    If the 8GB you get is official, you won't need to 512MB memory card.
    (When you get your PSP, just press triangle on the memory stick icon and information. If it says unknown it's a fake (but it'll still work for games))
