So what is the next step if Sony has successfully blocked all exploits to add CFW? Are we at the point where we may need to think about replacing the Kirk-Chip with a chip that doesn't bother to look for signed code, but instead just passes along the "all clear"? Or will PSP's with CFW become more valuable?
BTW Thanks for the amazing write up!
PSPs with CFW will become more and more valuable as time goes on. At least we'll always have homebrew though. That's the important thing.
The kirk chip is actually inside the central processing unit on new PSPs, we'd have to replace the entire CPU. If someone had an electron microscope we could figure out how the kirk chip works and would be able to come up with a hack for it. Until then, we just need to wait for someone to discover a kernel exploit (and release it publicly).
i just did a 2000 on 6.20 with pandora battery
Good job. You had a hackable PSP-2000.

Nope, that's only some PSP 2000s & 3000s, not all.
The latest 2000s and all 3000s with a firmware above 5.03 cannot be fully hacked.
First of all, there is no way to to play ISO games or use a custom firmware if your unhackable PSP is past 5.03. If you have 5.03 or lower, click here. If your PSP 2000 (with the TA-088v3 motherboard) or PSP 3000 is above 5.03 firmware, it is impossible (at this time) to get a CFW or play ISO. Same goes with the PSP Go, only the lowest firmware for the go is 5.70 so none of the Go's have any CFW. There is no way for us to know when a hack will be available so don't ask.

In the column where it says "Hackable with Pandora battery" if it says No, then that's when the firmware limit takes effect. It also means those PSPs can't use a full/permanent CFW or they'll become bricked.

Very nice guide. You need to stop writing so many, don't you have a life?
I don't, actually. I go to school a few hours each week... will be getting my 2 year degree in a few months. And I don't have a job... so, no. No life for me.
I wish I would have known and stayed updated with the PSP. I got a PSP Phat when they first came out and over the years it got bricked. I just left it and it got lost as I moved. Now I have a PSP 3000 only to get, it's unhackable. Hope something comes out in the near future. Great guide by the way, great info.
