    PSP-2000 MODEL WITH THE TA-88v3 MOTHERBOARD CANNOT RUN CUSTOM FIRMWARE AT THIS TIME!
    PSP-3000 MODEL CANNOT INSTALL CUSTOM FIRMWARE AT THIS TIME!
    (CUSTOM FIRMWARE CAN BE RUN VIA HEN, BUT IT CANNOT BE INSTALLED)
    What I'm looking for is information on PSP-2000 units. If you've purchased a PSP-2000, please list the box code letter. It's almost impossible to find this information on the net, I figured it was time to start a thread about this.

    Limited Edition & New Boxstyle:
    Star Wars Limited Edition (TA-085)(CONFIRMED)
    Simpsons Limited Edition (TA-085)(CONFIRMED)
    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)
    Piano Black with the New Box Style (TA-88v3)(UNCONFIRMED)
    Piano Black (Amazon.com)(TA-88v3)(PARTIALLY CONFIRMED)

    PSP-2000 Original Boxstyle Box Codes (Thanks to Alek @ Dark-AleX.org):
    (No Letter) = 3.60
    A = 3.71

    B = UNKNOWN
    C = 3.72
    D = UNKNOWN
    E = 3.80
    F = 3.90

    G = 3.95 / 4.01 (TA-88v2 / TA-88v3)
    A PSP with G and the 4.01 firmware is most likely a TA-88v3 motherboard, so it is advised that you stay away from them.

    PSP-2000 Motherboard Information:
    TA-85 (Can use and make Pandora Battery)
    TA-85v2 (Can use, but cannot make Pandora Battery)
    TA-88v2 (Can use, but cannot make Pandora Battery)
    TA-88v3 (Cannot use or make Pandora Battery)

    PLEASE HELP! MANY PEOPLE ARE LOOKING TO MAKE PURCHASES WITH THIS INFORMATION! IF YOU FIND INFORMATION, LINK TO THE SOURCE AND POST IT!

    On my box it says PSP-2000 MG and came with 3.80 what's the odds for it not being downgradeable ?

    ta-088 v3 Paino Black from Wal-mart

    Just bought a PSP Paino Black model-2001G firmware 4.01 from wal-mart The system was in the new value pack packaging it comes with no games or anything just the system it has the dreaded ta-88 v3. So there for it's no good! stay away from those :mad:


    However I returned it and picked up the god of war limited edition model-2001ZD and it contained a ta-088v2 motherboard, I used Pandora with it no problems hope this helps some people out there Happy hunting boys! and merry Christmas and thanks to all of those talented moders out there, we owe it all to you guys!. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Any store would be fine, but your best bet for getting a hackable system would be either the God of War or Daxter Limited Edition pack.

    No, they managed to get it into service mode, but no pre-IPL has managed to surface, so no software can be run yet.

    Trying to determine the mobo type on my psp 2001

    I just bought a PSP 2000 series, and i'm trying to figure out what kind of motherboard i have. If its the one that can't be hacked, i will be extremely disappointed :mad:

    All the information i've read here doesnt seem to apply to mine...
    Here's what it says on the box:

    PSP-2001PB / 98510

    Thats it. Thats all it says. other than the serial number starting with an "AB". I checked in the UMD slot and i cant see any numbers listed there either...

    Does anybody know what kind i have? Or can someone please help me figure it out?

    THX

    ic, you got the piano black version. Let me guess, the new box style? I've heard mixed results from those, but there is no real way to know on those unless you try out a pandora battery...sorry

    Limited Editions and the new Piano Black boxes do not have codes. Daxter is able to be moded (as that is what I purchased).
