    I've had my PSP since 2007. It's a 200X model, but I'm unsure about what motherboard it has. I don't remember what firmware it had out of the box. The box that the PSP came in was trashed. Maybe we can narrow it down?

    Facts:

    200X Model
    Running OFW 6.03

    Any help would be appreciated. I REALLY don't want to have to take apart my PSP to find out. Thanks.

    PSP is now all hackable due to the release of the private keys.

    Update to 6.20, run the 6.20 HEN, then run PSP Ident. That will get you your hardware info.

    Apparently, I'm dyslexic(no offense to those who are) and I'm actually on 6.31. But I found the HEN for it and I got PS Ident to run. But the program shows a bunch of hexes. Is this normal?

    With names like Kirk and Spock? Yeah, it's the names and IDs of the internal hardware on your PSP.

    It should have saved a .bmp in the root of your memory stick, show it to us.

    I ran PSP Identify on 6.31 and it provided similar results. I don't know why. Rydian, do you know? [​IMG]

    There was no .bmp file in the root. While I was running the exploit, there was a screen that said, "MEMORY LEAK" and took me back to the main menu. But I was able to run homebrew once. While in PSP Ident, Kirk ad Spock were random characters.

    It's the info lower than that (the motherboard info) we need.

    Under Kirk and Spock is:

    FuseID: 0x8900638
    FuseCFG: 0x890064C

    There's no other stuff.

    For PS Ident, so far, I've only tried 7.0.

    Gonna try PSP Ident 0.6.

    ALSO, when I run HEN and check the System Information, it shows up as 6.31 PRO. When I turn it off and on, it reverts back to 6.31. Is this normal?

    EDIT: It shows 4 of the nicknames for the chips in the PSP and nothing else. Then, my PSP turns off.

    Yes, it losing the hack when you turn it off is normal, that's what a HEN is and how it works, it's temporary in memory.

    I wonder if other people have issues with 6.31... go up to 6.35 and try it (a downgrader for 6.35 will be released later, confirmed).

    Upgraded to 6.35 and . . . same thing. I got my psp for Christmas so maybe it's a new motherboard causing this? [​IMG]

    Well, at least everything else works spiffy. [​IMG] (phew)

    Updating didn't work. I guess I just stick to Prometheus ISO Loader.
