    I'm still trying to figure out if my PSP can be hacked Pandora-style. Just saw the guide and it seems pretty easy to find out on my own as soon as I get a memory stick. Thing is - Which one?

    I want to get a big one, probably a 16gb if I can find one.
    But I don't know which brand is the best choice, or if it's safer [and less expensive] to buy a MicroSD to MS adapter with some big MicroSDHC card.

    Your thoughts, please?



    Ah, and as mentioned in the topic description, Which is better? ChickHEN hack or Pandora Hack?

    you need an offical memory stick for pandora. so no sd cards.

    I thought the largest you could get to use ISOs and Homebrew and all that with was 4GB? Correct me if i'm wrong.

    Neither is "better" as they both do the same job. I recently helped a friend hack his PSP using MHUSpeed and found it rather easy and very successful. Its not a question of "which is better" but instead "which can I do?"

    Any Firmware>5.03 needs a pandora battery to hack unless its a PHA board in which case you're screwed
    Firmware

    As I don't have a memory stick yet, I can't know the exact mother board. If anyone can help me with the info I provide, then thanks in advance!

    Here's what I found out:

    PSP slim METALIC BLUE
    in the box, the sticker with a bar code says "psp-2006"
    the last letter in that sticker which some people use to identify the mother board says "A". [second bar code, last letter, right?]
    Firmware that came with it is 4.01
    It's an Asia-version PSP. it says "region 3" behind the box.
    I can't see any text on motherboard throught the UMD area because the board isn't appearing - everything is covered in there.

    If you need any more info I can get w/o a memory stick, I'll try to get it.

    If it came with 4.01, it's possible that you have a Ta088v3 (PHA mobo), so whatever you do, don't update.

    Of course, you might have a CHA mobo that came with 4.01 anyway (but still don't update) [​IMG].

    No you don't. I installed CFW on a PSP 1000 with a pandora and a 512MB microSD card with an adapter.

    ok, just correcting something... the letter in the barcode sticker is "G"... i.i

    I know that I shouldn't upgrade - but now I'm almost sure that I'll have to use semi-hack T_T

    Yep, I've just tested it. SAD, but true.

    Now, please, can someone provide a TRUSTABLE semi-hacking guide for the PSP2000 v3?
    I've got some and even a vid, but I just want to make sure.


    Also, again on memory sticks - is there really NO PROBLEM in using things like dual MicroSD adapter to store and run your games, music, pics, video, homrbrew and so on?

    Sorry if I'm being repetitive, but I'm trying to be cautious... T_T

    If you have ChickHEN on it already just download and run 5.03 GEN-C

    I'd get a 16 or even 32GB memory stick depending on what your putting on your psp...

    I heard Lexar,Sony, and sandisk are good brands
