    THIS THEORY IS NOW PROVEN TO BE 100% TRUE!!!!!!!!!!
    Yes, it was proven false at one point, but with a small mistake fixed, the below info is 100% true! U have my RAIDER GUARANTEE!! (Which doesn't really help much, but I assure this is true.)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ok, I have bought two PSPs with 1.5, and one with, 1.51 and I've found a simple way to know what firmware the PSP has installed on it WITHOUT EVEN OPENING THE BOX!!!
    OK! Here we go!

    If u look at the left side of a PSP box, you will find a sticker that looks like this:


    X = Any number
    The red square = A, B, or a blank space

    Ok. When you look at the sticker, look at the space under "120V". I have marked this area with a RED SQUARE. That space can be blank, or will have a letter in it. The letters go in order of updates. Here's a list of the three possiblities (There may be more in the future.)

    Blank space = Firmware 1.5 - This PSP was bought very close at launch.
    A = Firmware 1.5 - Bought later on after launch
    B = Firmware 1.51 - Bought whenever, after 1.5s stopped.

    _____________________________________________________________

    Now you know a simple way to know what firmware the PSPs are!!

    DONT BUY "B" (1.51) IF YOU WNAT TO PLAY HOMEBREW!
    I SUGGEST THAT IF YOU FIND ONE IN A STORE THAT IS A, BUY THE DAMN 1.5, CAUSE THEY'RE REALLY RARE NOW!!

    My prediction, which is probably correct, is that when PSPs start coming standard with 1.52, they *MIGHT* have a C in the red square.

    OK! This is completely TRUE!! I'm sure of it!! Tho, it wont really help too much cuz 1.5s aren'e beign sold anymore.

    I thought it was somewhere in april. I have a theory that SONY didn't change the sticker to have an A until May, maybe June I think. Either way, This is pretty accurate to all the boxes I've seen, and I've seen plebnty!

    Yeah, but at EB, they have a $30 REPLACEMENT WARRANTY and that's what I had on my first PSP that got screwed up. Anyway, The guy let e exchange that oje for a brand new system with the new battery and al with no hassle! And I got to keep the box, so I have three boxes stacked up in my room. I have a 1.5 that I am never taking out of my house that will be used for all my homebrew and emus and I have a brand new 1.51 that I will use for newer games that require updates. The only thing that sucks is that I cant change my BGs for the 1.51... I hope they findd out hoe to homebrew for 1.51. Well, now that I have a 1.51, I can try some tests. If u wanna help me with ideas of wut might work, u can. I'm gonna learn more about homebrewing and try ubntil I figure it out.
