    I'm about to leave to get a brand new PSP...As I've seen on this forum is that 3000 isn't ok to use unless you want to rehack it each time you turn it off...I really want a slim tho...Are there any advice to help me out?

    it depends do you want to rehack it every time you turn it off? if not the best thing to do is get a decent looking used psp slim =)

    Hi,actually for psp 3000 the hack is not that hard,and u can turn your psp to sleep mode by pulling the switch once,and dun worry,it will not harm your psp at all.And even if it shut down due to low batt,the thing will still be in sleep mode(Because i had tried to empty my psp batt,but it seem quite hard to let it be totally flat)So dun worry about always u will need to rehack the firmware.So y get a used psp if u can get a new one?And for the hacking with the chickHEN expliot,its quite easy(normally i get the expliot hack the psp in 1 or 2 try)But there is one Bad point about it,that is it's custom firmware version update will be slower then the slim and phat psp.(but picture wise,the 3000 is really better)

    Wow. Make it a little more understandable next time? It really depends on what you want. Basically, the only difference between a NON hacked 3000 and 2000 is that the 3000 has a built in Mic, the anti glare screen, and the sharper colors.

    The difference between a 2000 and a 3000 HACKED is that for the 3000, you must leave it in sleep mode as mentioned above or else you would have to load ChickHEN and CFWE. For me, it takes 1 to 2 tries as mentioned above. Once you load ChickHEN and CFWE or 5.03 GEN-A, you don't have to reload it anymore as long as you leave it in sleep mode. So basically, you only have to load it once.

    If you do go for a slim, go for the hackable 2000. Do NOT go for the non hackable TA-088v3 2000's because they can't have permanent CFW yet. As I said, it's merely personal preference. You might also want the 3000 if permanent CFW is created sometime in the near future.
