I'm planning on helping a friend getting custom firmware on his psp. I used to keep up with the psp scene much earlier on during the phat-days, but have moved on after converting all my friend's psps to cfw. I know all my questions could be answered by using the search function, but they're relatively simple and it would save me a lot more time by asking the well-known psp fanatics on this forum.
1. Is there a chance that the GOW psp-2000 with 2.71 (original firmware) have the Ta-088v3 mobo? (or has that problem been solved)
2. What would be the fastest way to upgrade a 2.71 slim 2000 to cfw 5.01 considering that I can reconvert the pandora battery (phat battery), but will have to make a new mem card? (I remember DA came up with the auto update thing awhile ago)
Thanks for your time and help.
