This is my first post and I'm hoping some technical wizard out there will have an answer to a tricky problem. I have a PSP that was purchased secondhand with a cracked LCD screen. It powers up and seems to work okay apart from the screen damage. The thing is, before I decide what to do with it I'd really like to know what firmware version it's running. Whilst I can easily navigate to the system information option I can't make out what it says on the screen and no amount of squishing and twisting of the broken LCD makes it any easier to read. So, my question is simply this: Is there another way to determine the firmware version of a PSP with a broken screen?
Yes, I know I could just buy a new screen but I'm hoping there's some PC software out there that will connect to the PSP via USB and pluck out the info I need. Or perhaps there's another solution that I haven't considered. Bear in mind that I don't know the history of this PSP and the previous owner may or may not have upgraded the firmware; therefore model number, serial number, date code, etc are all unreliable indicators.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance guys and girls.
