all psps come with the latest fw, so 6.39?

Here in NZ, they still sell 4g 3k's brand new, and my friend got one but it might have had 6.38, dunno how he hacked it otherwise..

I bought a new PSP-3000 last month and I believe it had firmware 6.31, when at the time the latest firmware was 6.37 or 6.38. I bought my 3000 from Walmart as they have by far the most lenient return policy and I knew if my PSP's firmware was unhackable I could just take it back with no hassles.

It doesn't matter right now what firmware it comes with. They have released downgraders for 6.38 and the newest 6.39. Therefore, it wouldn't matter if you cared about downgrading, homebrew, or illegal activities.

It's HUGELY unlikely it'd have a firmware above 6.35....expect something like 6.31 if yokomoko's recollection is good.

I got 3 weeks ago a brand new PSP3000 piano black from amazon and it had a 6.20 firmware on it 04g board.
Couldn't be happier with it.

Seems like there is no clear answer. If it helps, two weeks ago I bought a "new" PSP 3000 at Target. It was on 6.37, so I returned it (of course, that doesn't matter now because of the 6.38/6.39 downgrader). Yesterday I bought a 3000 at another store, and it was 6.30. So go figure. I think 6.35+ is what you'll generally find.

A PSP can't be downgraded below the firmware it comes with, so it should be a PSP that comes with 6.35 or below.

Not true. Have had this also with a 3k that was on 6.37 but 6.35 was possible. That and i had a go on 6.20 that could also handle 5.70. Both came with the later version of firmware yet both downgradable..

Granted however there is a risk to any downgrading on the "un-hackables". However just dismissing something as not dooable is just silly.

All 1k in my experience can all go down to 1.00. Maybe the motherboard is the culpret here..... hmmm...

Yep to my knowledge... However the GAME and Gamestation round my area tend to lack knowledge when it comes to the handhelds. Went to buy a preowned 1k series and they gave me a 2k...

The thing is it counts with the motherboards so PSPident it and reply what motherboards its packing
