    Default Buying a Used PSP today, best way to tell if its hackable?

    Is the best way to tell if its hackable still by looking for the numbers inside the UMD slot? Because idk if checking firmware will work, because they might have upgraded. So whats the most reliable way to check it so I dont end up stuck with a unhackable used PSP?

    What kind of PSP are you buying a new one? If you buy a "phat" PSP they are 100% hackable.

    No. Best way to check if you have the box is THIS method.

    If not, ask the seller if they know what the starting firmware was and/or when was the PSP originally purchased.

    Yeah, I ended up getting a used PSP 1000, but I've heard those are slower for emulators? Should I find a psp 2000 with firmware 3.50 or lower?

    if you're looking for a slim, just make sure it doesn't come with 4.01 OFW and above out of the box. then, best way is to update it to the latest cfw 5.00 m33-4 to optimize the applications and homebrews you want to put there. if you'd ever encounter problems, you're always welcome to ask for help.
