    I've been looking for this product since I heard about "Refurbished DSs" and discovered the meaning of it. I finally found one to buy, but I wonder... Would this kind of PSP be able to receive a fully working CFW? I know that some PSP slims can't be hacked, and I really wonder if it would be possible to do so, since information on the firmware and motherboard aren't displayed in the site I found on purpose, and there is no original box.

    Please share your thoughts about this, and if needed, I'll post info on where I found it.

    as long as you can get a psp with 5.03 OFW and under
    your fine

    3000s and newer 2000s and use 5.03 OFW with chickHenR2 and CFW Enabler, they CANT run REAL CFW


    if you have older 2000 or a 1000 you can use with 5.03 OFW chickHenR2 and hellcat's recovery Flasher v1.60
    if you have 5.05+ use. Pandora Battery and magic Memory stick

    look for a older slim or Phat

    Little problem: I have no way to know if it's an old or new version of the PSP slim being sold, mostly because I'm not in USA and can't check the store.

    There's a way to check. If you have firmware 5.03 or lower, update to 5.03 only and boot into ChickHEN (after installation, of course). From there, get the homebrew app PSPIdent, and it'll tell you if you can install CFW on your PSP.
