    Best way to install custom firmware? also what's the best firmware at the moment?

    I have a Pandora if I need it.

    There is no difference. Just use the pandora to install cfw.

    Looking through your mind
    Pretty sure its 5.50 GEN D3? I'm not entirely sure, but that's what I've got.

    5.00 M33-6, or 5.50 GEN-D3.

    M33-6 is older and lacks a few features and such, but is said to be more "stable", while GEN-D3 is more up to date and has more features, but people claim it has stability issues.

    It's totally personal preference.

    One last stupid question.

    I have M33-4 it seems now, easiest way to get 6?

    Also is it normal for my PSPs theme to be white now? It looks bad.

    The sticky shows you how to use hellcat's recovery flasher to flash 6, do that.

    The standard icons for the PSP are white, yes. However you can use custom themes to change the icons, if you don't want to use a darker background.

    yes, it's normal for the background to turn to white. just change it back to whatever you want in the theme settings.

    if you have wifi, you can just go to network update and it will update you to 5.00m33-6 (i promise it won't put OFW6.30 on your PSP). just make sure your battery is charged or plugged in.

    PSP 2001 is the same as PSP 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, anything 2XXX.

    I believe the last digit is an indication of where it came from. 2001 means it's from the USA.

    There's both 5.50 GEN-D3, 5.00 M33-6 and there's also 5.50 Prometheus as well. I'm on GEN-D3 at the moment.

    Its the hardware revision. Same basic model but with a slightly different motherboard or whatever. Least to my knowledge. Why bother with different numbers if the consoles are identical? There's no difference between a US or Japanese PSP (except the language)

    100x, 200x, 300x. All you need to be concerned with is the first number. 1 means its fully hackable guaranteed. 2 means it might be hackable dependent on Motherboard and Firmware Revision. 3 means it is only temp hackable if on 5.03 or below firmware. You have a 1000 so your Pandora is usable and will hack your PSP.

    hardware revision can be seen from the datecode.
    the last digit in the version number is the region, and the difference between different region psp's is certain default settings(like whether X or O is back in XMB, and what the default UMD region should be for movies)
