A friend asked me to hack his PSP, and I agreed to do it. My only problem is, I thought it was a Phat, but it appears to be a Slim, and I don't know what type of motherboard it has. I do know that it's not a TA082. Now my question is, is there any way I can check what type of motherboard it has WITHOUT opening it up? Or is there any noob-proof way of hacking it (without a Pandora battery)? I've done a bit of research and I found this and this I read that if I do the wrong hack, the PSP will be bricked. Does this mean that data on the MemoryStick is gone too? I know there's a/multiple way(s) to unbrick your PSP, but I don't want to lose the data on the MemoryStick. Thanks in advance.
