My brother wants a PSP for Christmas, but wants to be able to do everything I can do with mine (ie. homebrew). I have checked the guide on here for box codes on PSP firmware, and a guide elsewhere for determining the motherboard (where "SS259" = TA-082 and "WS259" = TA-081).
My question is, what UK stores have the PSPs prepackaged on the shelves? If they just have the box on the shelf with the right codes, that does not mean the PSP round the back is going to have the same codes, and so there's a high chance it'll be a new firmware/motherboard.
Or, are there any online stores that give you this information? But they have to be decent online stores (ie. NOT eBay! - I had a lot of trouble with them getting my PSP ages ago).
Please help me guys.
