    hey guys i was just wondering what is the best psp model to get if i want to use the Pandora battery? i know all the old phat models work but i herd the newest custom firmware doesn't work in the phat models? and im to frightened to get a slim model because it might not be the hackable one? and also what do i need to know about if i want to play psp iso's on it

    I am currently running PSP 1000 w/Pandora Battery + 5.50 Prometheus CFW which is the latest. Either that or 5.00 M33. Depends on the user. Anyways I have had no problems so far except for cheats and ISO/CSO. I recommend you getting a 1000 because they are cheaper and have a 100% hack guarantee and they are strong. By that I mean if you drop it or do something along those lines by accident of course then you won't have any problems. The thing is like a brick. On the other hand a PSP 2000 has a new design as in it is slim and more comfortable but if you do something then I doubt it will have the same durability.

    Pandora battery works with every fat model.

    The firmware thing is for a different exploit that doesn't involve the battery.

    it's rather the opposite.
    newer 2000's and all 3000's are unable to get the latest cfw(they are stuck on 5.03 based semi-cfw's that are reverted to ofw when turned off, and only work on ofw5.03)
    only "incompatibility" i know of regarding 1000's is that some emulators are slower because of less RAM, and no multitasking option with irshell.
