(copied over from the psp homebrew and hacks section in the general postings)
*sighs a bit* i have spent the last week browsing online at various forums including this one for information about what can and can't be done with the 3001 model of the psp. I have heard people say yes it can be hacked some saying no it can't and some saying it can if it doesn't have a certain motherboard. so umm who is right? and if it can be hacked now how do i go about doing so? If it can be done if you don't have a certain motherboard how do i check to see if i have said motherboard or not? i bought my PSP used from game stop so i don't know its exact age. i just know that it is a psp3001 with firmware version 5.01 can someone please help me? i've heard of a great many things that you can do with a psp even (wether its true or not) installing windows? I'll admit i'm new to the home brew area of things but i am rather good at following directions. So please if anyone can help me i would greatly appreciate it.
