    What firmware the PSP is currently running and what firmware it was running when it was bought (if it is a PSP 2000). If the PSP is running greater than 5.03 and it's a 3000/TA-088v3 2000 then it's unhackable. If it's below than then it's hackable. For a 2000, the original firmware will determine if it's fully hackable or semi-hackable, with 4.01 and above original firmware being semi-hackable

    well while i was looking some info up i asked him for the info on the box, which he didnt have. now i just asked what the serial number is, HU2 and up will be unhackable right?

    right now he said he installed it to the latest firmware which is 6.20 and i also just asked him what firmware did it come with originally. im pretty sure if i ask him to tear down his psp to check the mother board he wont do it, unless its like 2 screws and you dont really have to take much apart?? but then i would really have to act like i am buying the thing. i really am interested, but only if its fully hackable.

    is this honestly like finding a needle in a haystack? lol
