Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Slim (PSP-2000) Console

Hi, I have bought PSP 2000 with firmware version 5.03. The shopkeeper hacked it for me and installed chickhen software on the memory card. I ran it several times but now I am facing a problem. When I click on Hen to run it, PSP restarts and I can not load my games. Please advise. Thanks

If you can't load only the NEW games that require higher Firmware versions, then you need to update Prometheus. Unfortunately, I can't help you with that here. Just google it.

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

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.

My psp was already modified, installed iso games in iso folder, and already played it but when i turned it off, my games was lost and my plugins does not work. when my memory stick was inserted to my psp...


Hey there! This means that the Mod on your PSP 3000 is not up to date as the 3000 uses a different mod than the one used for your PSP 2000. That is why.

You will have to install the the ChickHEN for the PSP 3000.

Here's the website for hacking your PSP 3000:

I have a psp 5.51 and now i want to hack it but i haven't got any hack for it please help


With PSP3000 models there is at present No Permanent hack/cfw for it.You can install cfw(custom firmware) on it using chickHen + a cfw. To do this you put chickHen + your cfw on your mem stick and run chickHen first then you can install the cfw which turns the psp operating system into a hacked psp.But if you turn off the psp or the battery is allowed to run flat then the cfw will die,meaning when you re-charge your psp and boot it up, your psp will not run backups again until you re-install chickHen + cfw.Do a search on google or youtube for "howto install chickHen or cfw on PSP3000" .

I can`t open my 5.03 GEN-C after updating to vertion 6.31


Unfortunately because you have now updated the PSP firmware, chickhen will no longer work so you will not be able to re-install GEN-C. You can only use chickhen on a PSP with firmware 5.03 or lower. If this is a PSP 1000 or 2000 you will now need a pandora battery and magic memory stick to hack it. If it is a PSP 3000 or upwards it is now impossible to hack at the moment with the current 6.31 firmware installed.

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.

DOWNLOAD:
FOR PSP SLIM ( 2000 & 3000 ) :

FOR CLASSIC PSP ( 1000 ) :

-Download ChickHEN R2 Easy to load
(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.
