You just 'bricked' you PSP.

What model is your PSP? Is it the 1000, 2000, or 3000?

Never, ever, turn off your PSP when attempting to do an upgrade.

Best thing you can do is get ahold of what's called a Pandora Battery and then attempt to 'downgrade' your PSP before you attempt to upgrade. The battery of the PSP has special circuitry designed to boot the PSP and loading from the internal ROM or from the disk drive. A Pandora Battery is the same battery, but has been physically modified so that it can boot from memory stick. You will have to download a special utility that will 'write' specific boot programs to a Sony Memory Stick. This has to be done on a computer. Once that is done, you put the Memory Stick into the PSP, install the Pandora Battery, and then turn on the unit. (You cannot have the external powersupply plugged in, the battery needs to be fully charged.) The PSP will boot off the Memory Stick. You will then have the choice to 'downgrade' to a previous ROM Version. This will take some time, so wait for it to fully load. Once it is complete, remove the Memory Stick and put in a normal battery, or reconfigure the Pandora Battery back to its original configuration, and the PSP should boot normally.

If you are not comfortable in doing this, you will have to do a search on Google for places that can do this procedure. Some places charge up to $80-$100 to do this.

Hope this helps.

Psp power indicater lights up green but does no turn on.


Hi.
It's probably bricked (dead). We need to know what's your last activity before it bricked. Mostly, bricked PSP is due to interruption during firmware update. Or when you install a CFW (Customized Firmware) by using ChickHen.
If your PSP is the slim type, you need to know what type of Motherboard it has. You will be lucky if you don't have a PSP with TA088v3 MoBo. Since you can no longer turn on your PSP, you will have no chance knowing the MoBo. But this procedure below is worth the try;
1.) Turn off your PSP by pressing the power button at least 10 seconds and green light is gone. 2.) While turned off, do one of the following until you boot into Recovery Mode;
a.) press the "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button. b.) press both "L" and "R" button and hold it while pressing the power button.
3.) If you are successful booting your PSP into recovery mode, google on how to recover your flash0 file...

HOW TO INSTALL CFW 5.03 GEN-C 9 (FULL) ON YOUR PSP


HOW TO INSTALL CFW 5.03 GEN-C (FULL) ON YOUR ALL PSP WITH ORIGINAL FIRMWARE VERSION 5.03

Requirements :

1. OFW 5.03 version
2. Chickhen R2 software (with slim mod2.tiff for psp slim or phat.tiff for phat psp)
3. CFW updater Gen-C software
4. ISO/CSO games
5. egghunt.bin
6 h.bin
7. A Computer

Note 1 : CHICKHEN R2, CFW updater GEN-C, egghunt.bin, h.bin and ISO/CSO games are downloadable in any website. But if you need it badly, I can send it by email. You cannot run install CHICKHEN R2 if any one of the softwares are missing.

Note 2 : This is for OFW 5.03 version only and it will not work in other OFW version 5.50, 5.55, 6.10, 6.01 & 6,20.


FIRST you need to download the required softwares like CHICKHEN R2, CFW updater GEN-C (if you have other CFW updater like GEN-B or GEN-A), EGGHUNT.bin, H.bin and at least 1 ISO/CSO game and store it in you computer.

THEN WE WILL START TO TRANSFER THESE SOFTWARES TO YOUR PSP.

TRANSFERRING DATA PROCEDURE:

1. Connect your psp to your computer using usb cable and it will display autoplay window. Just click view files. If it doesn't run on autoplay window, just go to SYSTEM SETTING and choose connect to USB MODE.

2. Put the CHICKHEN R2 to PICTURE FOLDER.

3. Put the GEN-C to GAME FOLDER.

4. Put the EGGHUNT.bin and h.bin to you MEMORY CARD along with the folder like GAME FOLDER, PICTURE FOLDER, ISO, PSP, etc.

5. Put the ISO/CSO games on ISO folder.

5. After transferring the data, remove your usb connection from the your computer.

6. Then go to system settings, TURN OFF the UMD AUTO START, TURN OFF the UMD Cache and TURN OFF the USB auto connect.

7. Also, on system settings, you need to change the character set to US (437) - Latin 1 (1252). After these steps, you are now ready to run the CHICKHEN R2.


PROCEDURE ON RUNNING CHICKHEN R2 with slim mod.tiff or slim mod2.tiff

1. On your PSP, go to PHOTO FOLDER, then choose MEMORY STICK, and once the picture square images appears, SCROLL DOWN VERY FAST at the last picture (it was slim mod.tiff to activate) within 1-3 seconds. GREEN LIGHT FLASHES if successful and your PSP is upgrade. Just wait for it to reboot itself.

Note : If not successful or green light doesn't flahes, just repeat the procedure of RUNNING CHICKHEN R2.

2. After updating, GO TO GAME FOLDER and active the CFW GEN-C updater. AND IT"S FINISH.

THE ISO/CSO Games are now viewable and playable in the GAME FOLDER.

NOTE : DO NOT REMOVE OR DRAIN YOUR BATTERY BECAUSE YOUR FIRMWARE WILL BE CORRUPTED AND NEED TO REPEAT THIS PROCESS AGAIN.

And I hope it will help you guys out there. Please rate and comment this blog. Good luck to all.

How to hack a psp without pandora ?


Since ChickHEN is out PSP-2000 owners with a TA88v2 or less or a TA90v1 motherboard now have the option to now install Custom Firmware without the need of a Pandora battery.We have put together a Easy installer that contains everything you’ll need. Hellcats Recovery flasher, ChickHEN, PSP firmware update 5.00.
**********************************************************************************

Warning make sure you only try this on a PSP that will accept PSP Custom Firmware flashing (Custom IPL) otherwise you will brick your PSP!!! PSP-3000’s will not take CFW. Check your PSP will take CFWhere. Or run ChickHEN first, then when ChickHEN is loaded run PSPident from the Game XMB menu. (PSPIdent with install with this easy installer)
Steps to install CFW on a PSP Slim without a Pandora battery.

***********************************************************************************
1. Check and triple check you have a hackable PSP that will accept
custom firmware flashing without resulting in a BRICKED PSP. Make sure you have a PSP with a TA88v2 or below only + or TAv90v1. If your PSP has a TA88v3 or above or is a PSP-3000 DO NOT proceed!!! You will brick your PSP.
Run the installer and point it to your Memory stick Pro Duo root.
2. If you don’t have don’t have PSP firmware 5.03. Get that here: PSP Firmware 5.03 Make a folder called UPDATE in your PSP/GAME folder and place the eboot in there on your memory stick pro duo.
3. Now lets run ChickHEN to have a homebrew enabled environment. In your PSP go to photo then click the ChickHEN photo and wait. If the PSP jams, please retry. If it flashes colours and reboots you have loaded ChicKHEN. Check your system info to be sure it say’s 5.03 ChickHEN R2. If you need help getting ChickHEN to run please visit this post.
4. Now with your PSP rebooted in ChickHEN go to your PSP XMB game menu and run Hellcats Recovery and install 5.00 M33!!! Your PSP will reboot, follow the instuctions to install PSP Custom Firmware 5.00 M33. After your done you can update to 5.00 M33-6

How to chicken?


Hello there Sir/Madam! My name is Alex and I work under FixYa.com expert team surveillance.

Firstly make sure your PSP-3000 or TA88v3 PSP-2000 has PSP Firmware 5.03 installed. Check in your PSP XMB go to Settings/ System Settings / System infomation. If you don't have PSP 5.03 installed download it here. Create a folder called UPDATE in PSP/GAME on your memory stick and place the eboot from the archive into the folder. Run the 5.03 Firmware update from GAME / Memory stick and you will have 5.03. The firmware required to run ChickHEN.
Now download the ChickHEN R2 release from here. Open the CHickHEN R2 archive and place the folder inside Slim with gif images into your PSP memory stick location like so PSP/PHOTO (later it will be PSP/PHOTO/ChickHEN). Now place the h.bin into the root of your memory stick pro duo. Where the folders PSP, MUSIC etc are located.
Ok next step place the memory stick into the PSP. We have found this step helps ChickHEN boot with less attempts, go your PSP XMB, to settings and Restore Default Settings. Your PSP will reset, now go back into settings and turn off UMD Auto-Start and UMD Cache. We found ChickHEN loads in 2-3 goes after doing this.
Now go into Photo / Memory Stick and ChickHEN. And wait, you will see five egg giff images, these will start to load thumbnails. Your PSP may freeze and reset. Just keep retrying and ChickHEN R2 will load up....But if you see flashing colors, your PSP will reboot into ChickHEN your homebrew ready!
With ChickHEN R2 loaded now starts the fun part. (P.S You can put your PSP into standby now so you don't have to go through the whole process again)

Hope this helped and/or advised you on your next move.Please rate my solution, thanks in advance. Wish you good day

Ok so my psp is not turning on the battery is fully charged the green light turns on for acouple of seconds then turns off any tips


Hmmmm... I guess we have a bricked PSP here...
First, I should be right with this - either you tried to install a Custom Firmware (ChickHen) or you were updating and something went wrong.
In order to UNBRICK your PSP, we need to know the following;
1. Your PSP make (Slim or Phat) 2. Your PSP Motherboard (if available)
However, try doing this as this might work if you have a Motherboard that can be recovered from bricking;
1. Press and hold "R" while switching on your PSP. 2. If your PSP boots on into a "Recovery Mode", you're a lucky guy 3. Scroll down to "Run Program at /PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP" and do the rest to recover your PSP's firmware.
Get back if you still have a dead PSP.

What will i do if my psp has a blank screen? it started when i click the chicken downloader


If you are trying to load ChickHEN and gets only a black screen and eventually turns off the PSP, then it means that it is not working. When you get it right, it will give a screen with squares and rectangles with green hues then PSP will restart. You can verify if the ChickHEN is loaded on System Properties. Depending on the version of your ChickHEN, it will need a lot of tries before you can make it work. Try downloading another version.

How can i play the games from memeory card in psp 3000 slim model game


ok well i just bought mine but it was used and i looked at the official firmware and it was 4.20, so i used the official update 5.03 and then updated it to that official firmware and then i used chickhen for my firmware 5.03 and then i used Gen A to play psp and playstation games! if you look in system settings then look at system info youl will see ur firmware, if it is below 5.03 then use this method with these files

http://rapidshare.com/files/307164750/psp_3001_only_for_5.03_and_below.rar.html

ok download this file i made for you, then extract all 4 files.

extract psp 5.01 fw update and put the eboot file in a folder named UPDATE and place that folder in your psp. hook your psp up to your computer and go to psp then game and put the update folder in game.

now make sure you have a full battery or at least a half charged batt with the charger on it! repeat keep your chrager on at all times from now on. now go to ur psp and chose the game option and the update folder will be there and hit x and it will go to the update process and just hit yes and agree to the terms and it will update the psp to ofw 5.03 and it will ask to shutdown. now turn on the psp and check system info to see if it is 5.03. it should be

no hook the psp back up to the computer and go to the picture folder and delete and pictures you have. now extract the chickhen file and put the slim picture folder with the files in the picture folder. put the chckhen for psp slim in the picture folder on your psp[ make sure that the pictures are in the chickhen fold} just open the slim folder and put the chickhen folder in ur psp picture folder k
and make sure you also put the h.bin in the root of the psp. this means the first folder you see when you open the psp. if you dont know what root of a card is then find out, its the very first folder thing that comes up when you open ur psp memory stick on ur computer

e896833.jpg
ok see the folder psp and others thats your root. put the h.bin file there,


ok and now you can put the 5-03gen-for-hen files in your psp. hook uo your psp to the computer and go to PSP then GAME look to see what the name if your psp drive is and run the the file called lauch me in the gen file for hen and it will bring up a menu. select what psp you have 3001 for you and then chose full install and psp install chose yes and then put the drive letter or name in the psp unit drive box. for instance if your psp drive name is G then just put G. you can see what the drive name or letter is by looking at the root folder and look up at the right top corner and it will say the name. then hit start and it will finish pretty quicly.


ok now go to ur pictures folder and open the chickhen and dont press anything and it should load if not then try again and when it does go green and load go to ur game folder and run the installer loader file and the hit L or R to install custom firmware then whens its done hit O and it will load in the fully hacked mode which lets you play psp games and psx games as well.
you never have to install the custom firmware and but you have to uyse the loader every time you turn it completely off.

see when you turn it off completely then hack is gone but all you have to do is run Chickhen again from the picture folder the run the installer loader and hit just O and it will load fully hacked again. you must repeat this step when ypu turn it off

How to crack psp 1001


note I did this for PSP 3000 but insted use the PHAT folder and the eggslpoit.tiff also install hellcat's recovery flasher as with PSP 1000/2000 you only need to do it onece or you can use pandora battery if it's on 5.50+
if it's 5.03 or below you are good to go. if it's below 5.03 update to 5.03 (NOT NETWORK UPDATE) http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/1645
download chickHEN: http://downloads.exophase.com/506/chickhen-homebrew-enabler-r2/
download CFW enabler 3.50 (can be higher if you don't want PS1 classics)
http://downloads.exophase.com/506/chickhen-homebrew-enabler-r2/
OPTIONAL (to be safe) download the new PSAR dumper (found on same page as CFW enabler 3.50.)
another optional update (recommended) http://pspnews.co.uk/?p=141

1) after downloading the 3-5 files update to 5.03 (skip steps 1-3 if already on 5.03)
2) extract archives, put EBOOT.PBP(X= drive letter) X/PSP/GAME/UPDATE make folder(s) if needed.
3) plug in PSP must be 75%+ and start the update. do not unplug the PSP and on the 3000 you cannot undo the update.
4) in chickHEN put H.BIN on X/ put the chickHEN photos (slim) X/PICTURE/chickHEN
5) in CFW enabler 3.50+or- put the folder containing EBOOT.PBP in X/PSP/GAME
6)(optional) open chickHEN MOD2 and replace slim.tiff onX/PICTURE/chickHEN (improve stability during the use of some hackedfeatures (making fun of s0ny it makes it load more offton)
7) turn on PSP restore defualt settings (better to hold SQURE TRINGEand START, SELECT) change theam to original green (closet green tobottom)
8) goto the chickHEN photo on the PSP scroll to bottom when the first broken egg loads. if it works good if it doesn't try agin)
8.5) OPTIONAL: if you use PSAR dumper follow the instructions and dump it it is recommended to do this before you do step 9.
9) goto CFW 3.50+ or - and press "flash and start" (recommend plugging it in)
10) it will load into CFW environment and dissaper on full restart/ crash/ freeze
you must do steps 8-10 agin but step 9 will be different and you don't need to flash agin.

troubleshooting: if it doesn't load try a different colour i noticed some PSPswork different with different colours. Example: 3 my PSP 3001s usedgreen one liked light blue. do optional step 6 it increases you'rechance of success (and mocks s0ny's anti-hack "stability during the useof some features have been improved" ********). try setting a fullbackground meaning one that fills the whole screen IE: no black otherthan the picture it's self. (this works better for me)
if you have trouble following the steps email me again. also if youbrick it's you're fault but following my tutorial you have a 99.99%chance of bricking (the most dangerous part is accusaly installing theofficial 5.03 update.)

1)INSTALLING 5.03 OFFICIAL AND LOADING CHICKHEN R2



a)INSTALLING 5.03 OFFICIAL

Firstly, you CANNOT do this unless you hava a PSP with Version =<5.03 . To check your PSP FW go to Settings-> SystemSettings-> System Information . If the version is 5.03 , skip thispart and follow the guide below to install ChickHEN . If you have alower version follow this GUIDE in order to install OFW 5.03 .

-Download 5.03 OFW (http://135ff34d.seriousfiles.com)
-Connect your PSP to your PC via USB and create a folder in PSP/GAME named UPDATE.
-Copy the .EBOOT file in PSP/GAME/UPDATE.
-Run the update from your PSP .
Now you should have a 5.03 OFW PSP , just what you need in order to load the Tiff Exploit.

b)LOADING CHICKHEN R2

Some useful tips for those who can't get the ChickHEN to work :

-Restore Default Settings
-Set UMD Auto Start and Cache OFF.
-Make sure you're on 5.03 OFW
-Format Memory Stick. ( this will erase all the data from your MSso you'd better backup your files on your PC before doing it )

-Try another method as this video shows :
(http://ad452dd7.linkbucks.com)
-Don't give up , just try and be patient.

Note that the files needed for PSP 2000 and 3000 series are different than the ones needed for PSP 1000 so don't screw it up.

Note that the files needed for PSP 2000 and 3000 series are different than the ones needed for PSP 1000 so don't screw it up.

DOWNLOAD:
FOR PSP SLIM ( 2000 & 3000 ) :

(http://d249d993.thesefiles.com)

-Copy h.bin to the Memory Stick ROOT .
-Copy ChickHEN folder to PSP/PHOTO ( create one if needed )
-Navigate to your PHOTOS folder , and enter the ChickHEN folder.And wait, you will see some images, these will start to loadthumbnails.Go all the way down to the last image. Your PSP may freezeand reset. Just keep retrying and ChickHEN R2 will load up….But if yousee flashing colors, your PSP will reboot loading the ChickHEN.

For those who can't load the ChickHEN files check above for useful tips and remember to restore default settings.

Check your PSP's version to make sure. If the version is somethinglike 5.03 ChickHEN R2 you should be fine and ready to install CFW.

2)INSTALLING CUSTOM FIRMWARE

Do NOT try this on any PSP 3000 or PSP 2000 unhackable mobo's this is only for PSP Phat and 2000 hackable series.
This will permanently install CFW onto your PSP
ChickHEN must be enabled.

-Download Recovery Flasher 1.60
(http://926291d9.thesefiles.com)
-Download 5.0 OFW
(http://a3b04c08.thesefiles.com) -direct download
-Copy the Recovery folder to PSP/GAME .
-Also copy the 5.0 official update renamed as 500.pbp to PSP/GAME/RECOVERY folder .
-Go to GAME and run the program and install 5.0 M33-6 !

In the end , press SELECT while in XMB and change UMD Iso Mode to''M33 Driver'' or ''Sony NP9660''. I also recommend formatting memorystick. Place your CSO/ISO games to the ISO folder on your memory stickroot.
