    I'm thinking of getting a slim but I have some questions

    1) if it bricks, I can just pandora it again right? I've heard rumors that once it bricks you cannot fix it anymore.. is this true?
    2) I heard it doesn't support 1.50 kernel.. does this mean I can't play some of my emulators such as GBA/SNES/NES etc. and other homebrew like PSP revolution and ez2dj portable?
    3) I've seen some PGP case lookalikes for the slim, has anyone confirmed if they are good?

    1. Pandora works on ALL PSP's. So no worries there.

    2. No, it doesnt support 1.50, unless you DL and install TimeMachine, (sorry I dont have a slim so I dont know how to use it). Also there are updates of some emulators that have the Slim support.

    3. ? PGP, or did you mean PSP?

    1. Pandora and Despertar Cementerio + nand backup = Can't go wrong

    2. TimeMachine or the Utopia project will be the only way of running1.50 homebrew without any other apps. (There's always Noobz eloader)

    3. I haven't seen none yet.

    great, I really want to get a slim now.
    so let me get this straight, the only thing it doesn't have from the phat is the 1.50 kernel.. correct?
    I'm thinking of getting the mint green slim.. it's very pricey though.. :/

    And for people like me,the IR port is important. I use my PSP with a pda program and the IR keyboard to take notes at school.Everyone else has laptops that die out in 3 hrs,mine lasts 9 hrs,and is pocket sized :D

    love the slim, tv connectivity, nicer screen, smaller & lighter

    also i'm using snes & gba emulators that work flawlessly in the 3.90 kernel, no need for time machine for them, same with irshell and the new torrent app

    that's good, those are basically the only emulators I use anyways..

    3. PSP slim crystal case: http://youtube.com/watch?v=I1MYHY5wybM

    you decide if it's good or not.

    1st FAT: 2.60 > 2.71 > 3.10 > 3.50 > DOWNGRADED w/ Lumines > 1.50 > 3.40 OE-A > 3.52 M33 > 3.52 M33-4 > BRICKED > UNBRICKED and DOWNGRADED to 1.50 @ 041508 > 3.52 M33
    2nd FAT: bought at 3.73 > 3.80 M33-5 using Stallone\'s Pandora Battery Easy Installer > 3.90 M33-2
