PostSubject: Determine whether or not your psp is hackable...   Sun Apr 12, 2009 2:59 am

So the no. of threads about the same topic is increasing at a great rate and its kinda boring to answer the same questions again and again.....
So READ VERY CAREFULLY
1)Psp 1000 aka phat-all of them are hackable.So dont ask that i have a phat with 5.02 ofw blah blah...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~
2)Psp-2000 aka slim and lite aka slim-Older slims are hackable and extremely new slims are hackable too.The psp that were manufactured during late summer and few months later are not hackable.
Reason for this:



The ta-88v3 mobos cant be hacked yet but the ta90v1 can be hacked.So the very new psp can be hacked but chances that u get those are LESS..

Following criterias can b considered:
1)The firmware psp came with.
2)Serial code below the battery
3)Box Code and limited edition bundles
4)New box type serial codes
5)DA's TA-88v3 identifier
6)Date code

1)The firmware your psp came with....
If its a 4.01,the chances that u can hack your psp is very low...because sony manufactured ta-88v3 mobo when the 4.01 was their main firmware....
i dont have any idea about what firmware ta-90v1 ships with so if anyone knows plz let me know....

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2)The serial code:
Psp-2001 with HU2 most probably has the ta-88v3 mobo.....
I personally dont think this is true .
so its better to overlook it.....
The serial code is located below the battery.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3)The box code and limited edition psp:
(No Letter) = 3.60
A = 3.71
B = Unknown
C = 3.72
D = Unknown
E = 3.80
F = 3.90
G = 3.95 (TA-088v1) / 4.01 (TA-088v2) / 4.01 (TA-088v3)
I got a pic of this from somewhere longtime ago:



This is the best way to know whether u have a ta-88v3 mobo if u have a psp with old box type.
Limited Edition packs:

Daxter Limited Edition Pack (TA-85v2/3.80 OFW)(CONFIRMED)
God of War Limited Edition Pack (TA-88v2/3.95 OFW)(CONFIRMED)
Madden 09 Limited Edition Pack (TA-88v2/3.95 OFW & TA-88v3/4.01 OFW)(CONFIRMED)
Star Wars Darth Vader Edition Pack(TA-85v2)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4)New box types dont have the box codes as above but instead have a serial no. starting with AB.
See below:



Here if the code has AB01 in its initials then the psp is hackable
but if the code starts with AB02 it cant be hacked...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5)The ta-88v3 identifier by DARK ALEX:
This is will clear all your doubts whether u have a ta-88v3 mobo or not:
http://dark-alex.org/88v3id.rar
download it

Follow this steps then:
First Step: You need to format your memory stick with the app called "mspformat" that is included.

- Connect your PSP via USB.
- Format it using the command "mspformat E", being "E" the letter of your PSP on your PC.
- Program will ask you to confirm it, press Y.
- Plug out your PSP. IMPORTANT: DO NOT format again the MS within the PSP until this test has finished.
- Connect again the PSP via USB, and manually create PSP and PSP/GAME folders.

Next step must be done on a PSP homebrew capable (with CFW). If you don't have it, ask someone else to do this step and give you the resultant files.

- Copy the GETIPL folder to PSP/GAME. Get the 3.90 and 4.05 updates, and put them onto the MS root with the following names: "390.PBP", "405.PBP".
- Run the GETIPL app from your PSP homebrew capable, and it will create a couple of files on the MS root, called "ipl390.bin", "ipl405.bin".
- Connect the PSP via USB, and use the "msinst" program that its included on the pack to install the 3.90 IPL on the MS.
- You must do it this way: "msinst E E:\ipl390.bin", being "E" your PSP letter on your PC. Program will ask you to confirm it, press Y.

Insert the MS with the 3.90IPL installed onto the PSP that you want to confirm if it's a TA-088v3 or not, and turn it on with a Pandora Battery plugged in. You'll have two possible results:

- PSP turns off inmediatly after starting - Your PSP is NOT a 88v3.
- PSP keeps turned on with a green light forever - Your PSP is a 88v3, or you have done something wrong. Next step will confirm it.


- Connect again the PSP via USB, and use again the msinst, but this time with the 405IPL. Remember, "msinst E E:\ipl405.bin", being E your PSP letter on your PC.

Try to load it again with a Pandora battery. You have two possible results:

- PSP turns off inmediatly. If PSP turns off inmediatly with this IPL and on the other test it had that green light forever, it will be 100% sure a 88v3.

- PSP keeps with a green light forever. This CANT be on any PSP, being 88v3 or not. If this is the case, youve done something wrong.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6)Date Code:
This codes are usually never present on japanese and american psp.
They are found just above the serial code under the battery that is it if it is present in ur psp....
I dont have a pic but if somebody has it plz give it to me....
if its 8c then u cant hack ur psp...8b can usually be hacked....and below that all are safe for u to buy!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~

Finally the psp 3000 aka brite:
These psp are the most candy ass psp ever manufactured
The gripshift exploit has been discovered and soon the psp 3000 will be cracked..[ITS ALMOST CRACKED] but its good to avoid them until they fully cracked....

Don't worry I moved it for you. Yeah, it can be confusing, but it's good in the Question Center, so that people going to ask if it is hackable, will see this guide before they ask.
