    OK, some of you might remember me, i wanted to hack my psp ages ago and i miserably failed cos i found out i had a ta88v3 and i stupidly updated above 5.03... anyways i still come on the forums just to see whats happening and i really want to get a hackable psp now... like now! Theres so much stuff i can do like psptube, the flash themes and the best thing is ps1 games. Because i have a ton of them in a box in the attic [​IMG] But i have like no money and is there any way i can get a hackable psp without spending nothing or next to nothing? (Obviously giving the one i have away)

    thanks

    The only thing that comes to mind is theft.

    Otherwise we'd all have one [​IMG] Check your local game store. Is there a Craigslist for the UK? Something like that would work too.

    The cheapest PSP's I've seen were on Craigslist and were between 50 and 100 dollars. I got mine recently from Ebay for 89$ (3000 model, silver). You could probably find someone giving away broken PSP for free on Craigslist, as I've seen a couple people do that.

    Since from the sounds of it yours is a Slim you could easily goto Ebay and purchase a super cheap PSP that has a broken screen and replace the broken one's with your screen. Or of course you can try the above mentioned methods.

    You should have researched more before buying the PSP. I don't think there is any way to hack it for free, try swapping with someone, with the argument that you have a 3000 swapping for a 2000. Most people would accept that trade, if they don't know about hacking the PSP.

    I picked up my PSP-1000 from E-Bay about 6 months ago for £45 with a game. I think you should sell yours on E-Bay, as it's a higher model than mine you should get a better price, and then use that money as your maximum limit for getting your new PSP. Whilst it might sound condescending, the best advice would just be to be patient and eventually you'll get a good deal.

    dirty_harry: yes i know i shouldve researched but its done now... thanks for the replies guys, but the thing that kills me is that even if i trade my 2000 in i wont have enough money for a used 1000
    yh i think ill go with dirty_harry's suggestion and im going to try ask some people i know with a psp if theyre swapping..

    PS: if anyone can find a hackable psp online at a good price, i'd be really greatful if you could help me out [​IMG]

    Depends on how many UMD games you have or how competent you rate yourself at being able to repair the PSP

    PSP 1000s in working condition tend to get jumped up prices on eBay due to the hackability. You could always try looking for an older PSP-2000 even ask the seller what its serial no. is so you can assess its hackability

    Looks good to go but the guy only has 1 ebay listing on there so is inexperienced in the matters, you may have troubles with it getting to you in a good condition

    Question is how much you can get for your PSP 2000 (unhackable will decrease an ebay price)

    Spam/ask the firmware question to every 2000 seller on ebay. That's what i did, and almost all of them answered within the day. Selling on ebay is good too, you can use some fancy wording to hike the price.

    OFFTOPIC: What I also realized are the amount of immoral people selling CFW psp's and advertising the games along with it. Like they say 350 games and a psp2000 mint condition. I'm sure that's illegal, but I saw a few get away with it. One went for like 290 AUD (that's about 265US I guesstimate). Ridiculous, but it works for those guys.

    Its illegal, I don't think you're even allowed to advertise it as CFW on eBay...actually from your wording they're advertising it as if it has 350 UMD games with it that is illegal and immoral. Profitting from piracy is putting yourself in line get your arse slung in jail

    ok guys! I don't wanna get too excited because then ill probably get disappointed if it doesn't work out... but at mosque (yeahh) i asked my mate if he wanted to swap and i told him about my whole story. And then he rang me right now and he says the date code is 8A underneath his battery and his ofw is 5.03, and he'll do a straight swap. He doesn't play on his psp anways soo.... [​IMG]

    Wish me luck.. you guys have been great! thanks a lot

    ill be back on here again lol to pester you guys about hacking it, but i have some knowledge and there's loads of other topics [​IMG]

    If the PSP is hackable then there are now 2 decent sticky topics on softmodding and pandora modding, if OFW is 5.03 then Softmodding guide is the way to go.
