    I found someone selling a PSP 2000 which is on 6.20

    I don't know if it has a v2 or v3 motherboard.

    If it has a v3 motherboard then is it correct that there is no way to downgrade to install CFW?

    And since it's on 6.20 I guess I can't run PSPIdent to see what motherboard it has?

    It's a blue PSP 2000, but not the Madden edition most likely.

    Correct; if it's v3 then it's stuck, and I don't think you'd be able to run PSPIdent either.

    A method not too reliable that I know:

    Ask the person for the letter written on the sticker on the box, like this picture:
    http://i39.tinypic.com/vhyfyg.jpg
    PSP-2004 PB
    200-240V
    F

    (The PB is for Piano Black)
    If the letter is from A to F, no problem, if it is G or above, that is a v3 motherboard.
    Hence the list:
    # (No letter): Firmware 3.60, motherboard TA-085;
    # A: Firmware 3.71, motherboard TA-088;
    # B: Firmware 3.71, motherboard TA-088;
    # C: Firmware 3.72, motherboard TA-085v2;
    # D: Firmware 3.73, motherboard TA-085v2;
    # E: Firmware 3.80, motherboard TA-085v2 or TA-088;
    # F: Firmware 3.90, motherboard TA-088 or TA-088v2a/b;
    # G: Firmware 3.95 ou 4.01, motherboard TA-088, TA-088v2a/b or TA-088v3;
    # H: Firmware 3.95 ou 4.01, motherboard TA-088, TA-088v2a/b or TA-088v3;
    # I: Firmware 4.01, motherboard TA-088v3;
    # J: Firmware 4.05, motherboard TA-088v3.

    ONLY FOR THE SMALL BOX

    You could look under the battery for a date code, only Japanese PSPs don't have them (I think) there's a certain code which means that its unhackable.

    It's actually a PSP 2001 and as I understand those don't have date codes either. I already have one and it doesn't have a code so I assume it's true.

    Only way to find out is to try.

    but the PSP 2001 is quite old. It wouldn't have the TA088V3 motherboard. Heck, I pandoraized my friend's psp 2002

    The last number (2001) denotes the region. PSP-2001s are US (North American?) PSPs.
    A PSP-2002 is an Australian one, which goes with your flag next to your post.
