    If you're scared of bricking it then don't try to flask it? o;
    You could get someone you know who has experience with this stuff like a friend.

    With a 3000 if you flash you end up with a brick...that Motherboard is non flashable.

    What's the difference between flashing it and installing CFW?

    There are temporary versions of CFW and permanent versions. 3000s only support temporary, such as 5.03 GEN-C, loaded through ChickHEN, as the motherboard won't allow permanent versions like GEN-D3.

    Flashing deletes EVERYTHING in the psp's flash memory and replaces it with your own, while installing simply replaces some files and/or adds new ones.
