June 2005 PSP still working
My first PSP is from June 2005, bought on the same day Swaploit was released , and is still working fine. It has had about 8-10 reflashes, and I don't bother with custom themes etc. nor do I change settings very often (also writes to flash).
I wonder if there's a way to see the number of bad block remaps on the NAND chip, similar to a HDD. It wasn't included on any of the many System Info programs when homebrew was still booming, so probably not.
This also puts a big question mark with Sony's decision to collect all kinds of usage stats and write those to flash, as this "useless" information will degrade the flash faster. (Note: I tried to find the relevant thread for this; it was an analysis of one of the 6.xx OFWs and it turned out there's stats like number of game starts, etc.)
