    PSP-3000s and PSP-2000s with TA-88v3 motherboards are not hackable.

    Your best bet is to get a PSP Phat or an older PSP Slim, preferably one that was bought earlier than August '08, or one that came packaged with a firmware version below 4.01.

    Yeah, it looks like it is already flashed, so you should be able to put stuff on it no prob.

    The thing about buying already flashed PSP's is that the price is usually jacked up. I don't know the average price of PSP's in Sweeden, so I can't really judge on the price.

    It's something like $50 more expensive than a non-flashed one.

    Easy way to tell if it's flashable from used PSP-2004's: If the datecode behind the battery is 1-7, it is.
