Worth buying 03g over 04g?
So I want to get a 3000, mostly because of the screen.
Here's what I know so far (correct me if I'm wrong)
The 04g were released on October 1st 2009, alongside the PSP Go, with 5.70 OFW.
3000 with the 03g module can go below 5.70 firmware, allowing the use of 5.03 LCFW.
A 04g module cannot, so I'd be stuck with 6.20 TN or 6.35 PRO.
I've read about higher stability and plugin compatibility on 5.03, but also that 6.20 TN is improving rapidly.
Finding a 04g is pretty easy, but then I wouldn't be able to choose.
My priorities are GBA and PSX emulation, as well as ISO loading.
With that in mind, is it worth the effort to grab a 03g, or would 6.20 TN/6.35 PRO satisfy my needs?
I currently use 6.35 PRO on my Go and it is strictly used for iso loading or Homebrew apps. i.e. no PSX emulation. I have tried 6.20 TN on a slim and it works well but PSX emulation is not easy on it, there are apps that allow for some PSX games to be played but they have to be in ISO BIN or IMG format, not the standard eboot you would expect. Personally if you can get an 03g that can be dropped below 5.70 then you should, and go for 5.50 Prometheus 4 as it currently supports all PSX with pops and ISO loading as well as Homebrew and custom xmb.
huh, 5.50 prometheus doesn't work on any PSP 3000.

6.20 TN-D will allow PSX support soon.
5.03 Prometheus-4 might be better than TN-C currently because not all plugins work on TN-C but that'll change eventually.
IMO, if you can find a 03g go for one. Otherwise, TN-D should have all features you asked for ( ISO, homebrew, PSX )
Note : All my guides are outdated.
if you want to buy a 3000 3G, you can buy mine off me. i dont use it a lot, so you want, you can contact me for a 3G
Getting a 03g would pretty much mean buying a used one,
and I'd rather have a shiny new one.
I can wait for better PSX support in TN-D, I guess.
Say, I read there was a 09g module released alongside OFW 6.30.
Since that probably means 6.20 would be impossible for those PSPs,
I'd like to know what the boxcode for 6.30 OFW is.
This is the most updated list I've managed to get so far:
A = 4.20/4.21
B = ??
C = 5.02
D = ??
E = ??
I'd like to assume K= 6.20 and L= 6.30,
but I'd like to be sure before I spend my money,
since it might be that K= 6.20/6.30
I should probably aim for a J,
though if someone can confirm L= 6.30 then K might be safe to buy.
All of a sudden even a 04g might be hard to find, lol.
3007? Taiwan? That's a bit far from where I am. No offense, but I like to do that sort of thing in person. Besides, you shouldn't try to make a deal with someone that registered less than 24 hours ago.

I don't think you will find any PSP brand new with OFW higher than 6.20. If you do get one with 6.35 you can downgrade it using davee's 126.96.36.199 downgrader. Even PSP Go's can be downgraded to 6.20 after being updated to 6.35 now.
Went to a store the other day. Asked the guy a favor, got him to open a box he had there. He turned on the PSP and it had 6.30 OFW, out of the box.

Considering 6.30 was released on 06/29/2010, Sony's had over half a year to start shipping PSPs with 6.30 OFW and higher.
