    Anyone got first-hand experience about the date codes behind PSP batteries and their ability to run CFW?

    DX's Chinese New Years celebration kinda got my Pandora stuck.

    It's a 2004 with datecode 7C. Does this mean I'm safe?

    7c is below 8c, so yea, I think you can install cfw.

    I first had a 8c, returned it because I found out I couldn't get cfw on it, then bought one allready with cfw from a shop, we actually have shops were you can buy allready modded consoles lol.

    seems to me that datecodes are related to the boxcodes.
    datecode 8c=boxcode G=most of the time TA-088v3, but sometimes TA-088v2.

    From what I made up is that if boxcode is G it could be a v2 or a v3.
    If the date code is 8c or above, it is v3

    And how would you know if you have a v3 or v2?

    put in a properly made MMS and jigkick battery.
    auto-shutdown+black screen=v3
    booting m33 setup or blinking MS led=v2

    Lol, that is a way I could figure out myself too [​IMG]
    But in Holland, pandora/jigkick batteries are pretty expensive, and pretend you don't know what dealxtreme is and you don't have a friend with a psp with allready cfw on it and you don't want to manually make one (pretty desperate position).
    Maybe then you would like to know first if you have a v2 or a v3?
