its been around a few months back since ive posted my psp problem, and i still am wondering. 0okm is still isnt any help at all(he is never there, but i wont complain), so i ask for ur guys help again. I will post my pictures once again. Thanks alot! My psp has both mobo code stamped on them. As you can see there is the typical, horrible, IC1003 posted on the place where u usually check the mobo type. Strangely, the other side, has a hidden code under one of the parts. Seems like a code other than 1C1003...It looks like an 1C6001 or 1C5001. sorry for nagging u guys again, but i can solve my problem this time. Thanks alot!
