there will be guides on how to open up the various models - guides in replacing such parts. if you require the parts then dx is a good place to hunt.

is there a guide here about opening up psp - i haven't seen one?

There are a few screws on the back of a PSP, 2 on the right and 2 under the battery. Removing those will allow the faceplate to be removed which is all that is needed to replace buttons/faceplate. Going into the rest of PSP disassembly gets complicated (I'd like a nice shell for mine but can't be bothered with the crazy amount of disassembly needed)

    @FlareReZ what language would you reccomend to start with, to learn DS coding? Just curious
  • FlareReZ @ FlareReZ:
    devkitPro by defaults use C and C++. So I suppose you start off with C first and then move onto C++.

    Because C++ is more complex than C.
