    I might be getting a new PSP and I am COMPLETELY new to it. Which model should I get? 1000? 2000? 3000? Please give me a reason on what model should I get... How to crack it so I can play backups etc? Thanks!

    Should be in the PsP section shouldn't it?

    Oh well. I say get Phat for easy hacking. As phat psp are 100% hackable. The 3000 is something you just ignore. Useless. If you can get a PSP 2000 that is on or under firmware 5.03 then it should also be easy to hack.

    Well, the reason you should get a psp2000 is because it's softmoddable. While the psp1000 will look big, the 3000 won't be hackable. So yeah.
    Don't EVER, get a 3000 like me T____T

    1000: big, has an infra-red(so it can be turned into a universal remote for your TV with homebrew) 32MB RAM, can always be hacked.
    2000: half the thickness of 1000, no longer has infrared but TV-out and 64MB RAM instead(increases umd loading, allows for howebrew to enable a form of multi-tasking, and improves emulator performance), old ones can be hacked freely, newer models below or on 5.03OFW can only be modded temporarily with a 5.03CFW(mod is undone upon power-off but standby has almost no power drain)
    3000: improved screen, better TV-out, relabeled home button, can only be temporarily modded on CFW 5.03 and below.

    my advice, get an old 2000 you know came originally with a FW below 4.00, or get a 1000.

    If your interested in emulators dont get the 1000 because the d-pad is possibly the worst d-pad in history, while on the other hand the 2000 has a really good d-pad.

    The D-Pad? I have no problems with the Dpad especially when I play fighting games like Tekken.

    Man. I bought PSP this year and is the WORST console I bought in my life. I only use emulators. The games are so boring (except great games by Capcom, Konami of Square-Enix).

    I will sell this piece of shit.

    If you get a 2000 used from Gamestop, it's usually going to be 6.20 OFW, I know all the ones at mine were.

    I updated to 6.31, and it was still hackable.

    If the firmware is above 5.03, you will need a pandora battery.

    Pandoras are made either by hardmodding it with a pencil and some cutting tools, or by softmodding it with VSH Menu. The latter requires an already-modded PSP.

    What does this have to do with the topic again?

    On topic thedicemaster's post-
    http://gbatemp.net/t249438-maybe-getting-a...p;#entry3060440

    If you're not sure what FW your 2000 will come with, it's better to go with the 1000 (Phat).

    i'm sorry if this might sound a bit off topic, but to softmod do you just press Make Pandora Battery and then to get it back to normal press Make Normal Battery? Might sound a bit of a no sh*t but it seems a bit too easy [​IMG]

    Fixed.
    I think Raiser means that you just gave your opinion on the handheld and not an answer to what he asked.

    OT: I suggest you get a PSP 2000, the first batch is fully hackable, all you need is a memory stick and a USB cable, install and then install CFW.
