    OK, usually where ever you download your firmware it will give you instructions on how to update.

    All you have to do is hook up your PSP, USB Mode, go to PSP/GAME, make a folder called UPDATE put your EBOOT.PBP in there and update.

    Where you put your EBOOT, just make a folder called UPDATE there and put the EBOOT in there.

    Format your memory stick. Go to PSP/GAME and make sure the EBOOT is EBOOT.PBP and not 135342EBOOT.PBP (since some are).

    It's really straight forward, this problem has been occuring a lot latly.

    Ok is your motherboard TA-082? Open your UMD drive and look at the green part (the motherboard) and tell me if you see any writing.

    PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR'S DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THE PICTURE

    It's nice if it doesn't because you can get the easy install and it is way better then having to install it all yourself.

    Ok well if you want to do that without damaging your PSP then just follow this.

    THIS IS NOT MADE BY ME, BUT IT WORKS AND WON'T DAMAGE YOUR PSP

    GUIDE #1..... HOW TO INSTALL HEN AND DEVHOOK ON A TA-082 FW2.71 PSP

    GUIDE #2..... HOW TO PLAY ISO/CSO

    PART #3...... Other reminders, Credits, How-To-Use and links

    PART #4...... FUTURE UPDATES/IMPROVEMENTS (1)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    GUIDE #1:

    HENC is homebrew enabler. This handy app lets you use the devhook launcher for your TA-082 motherboard fw 2.71 PSP. It will let you emulate/boot fw 1.5 on your PSP. Instead of a fw1.5 PSP emulating/booting the fw 2.71, you are able to do the opposite. It will not matter if you have a ta-082 motherboard or not.As long as it's fw 2.71


    REMINDER:THIS WILL NOT BRICK YOUR PSP OR YOUR TA-082 PSP.. THERE IS NOT EVEN A LITTLE CHANCE..THOUGH YOUR PSP HAS TO BE A 2.71 FOR THIS GUIDE TO WORK. PLEASE REMEMBER TO REPLY IF THIS GUIDE HAS HELP U ALOT.

    PLEASE DON't ASK QUESTIONS RELATED TO SOMTHING LIKE THIS>>>>

    1.Are u shure my psp going to be ok?
    YES, it will be ok.
    2.Will it brick my 2.71 ta-082?
    NO, it will not brick your 2.71 motherboard/ta-082
    3.Will it work with a ta-082?
    Yes it will work perfectly as long as it is a 2.71 fw psp


    IF U DO NOT HAVE A FIRMWARE/VERSION 2.71 PSP FOLLOW STEPS FROM 1. TO 43. TO CHECK WHAT FW U HAVE PLEASE READ #47.

    IF YOUR PSP IS ALREADY ON FW/VERSION 2.71..START FROM 11.TO 43.


    In this tutorial you'll find words/phrases that some of you might not know.here is wat i call 'kinda dictionary'

    1.Hard reset
    To hold the power switch up for 4-8 seconds.
    2.ROOT menu
    The ROOT menu of your psp memory stick is where your folder PSP and MP-ROOT is located.
    3.MS
    MS means memory stick.
    4.FW
    This means firmware which is another word for version.
    5.thx
    this means Thanks or Thank you.
    6.Keavalro
    This is not a 'thing',Kealvalro is a member of this site like me.
    7.Link(s)
    A link is something you can simply click on with your cursor and it will bring you to the site that you clicked on
    8.Homebrew
    Homebrew is like what you are trying to do right now. Downloading games for psp,apps, or 'hacks'.


    GUIDE STARTS HERE

    1. Download the fw 2.71 update here http://dl.qj.net/Firmware-2.71-PSP/pg/12/fid/8046/catid/163

    2.Connect the usb to your psp and computer

    3.In the ROOT menu of your memory stick click on PSP, then GAME

    4.Make a new folder called UPDATE

    5.Now drag the firmware update into UPDATE

    6.Now disconnect the usb and go to the GAME on your psp

    7.Click on the update and update your psp

    8.Now you should have a 2.71 psp, to make shure go to SETTINGS>>>SYSTEM SETTINGS>>>SYSTEM INFORMATION

    9.Connect the usb

    10.You can now delete the 2.71 firmware update

    11.NOw download HENC with devhook in this all in one download here http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/879 . REMINDER:[/bold] Henc works ALOT better when you have a background installed on your 2.71fw psp instead of the normal background with the moving lines.

    13.Extract the folder u just downloaded with this
    http://www.filepedia.com/desktop_softwar...ools/winrar.cfm

    14.Now open it

    15.REMINDER: NOW DO EXACTLY AS THIS GUIDE SAYS

    16.In that folder double click on HENC-DEVLAUNCHER271

    17.your should see a folder named MS_ROOT

    18.open it

    19.Save all your saved games and important stuff that u dont want to delete on your desktop.

    20.now overwrite all the things on your psp ms with all the things that are in MS_ROOT folder

    30.Disconnect your usb cable

    31.Hard reset your psp

    32.Now go view your pictures and you should see a picture called HENC

    33. Click on it and your psp screen should turn blue then green but if not try again. if it only turns blue then thats ok also. just as long as it restarts your psp after.

    34.Now go to your games (where u go to update your psp) and choose devhook launcher for fw2.71

    35.There should now be a black screen with a purple box in the middle

    36. This is devhook

    37.On that screen choose FIRMWARE

    38. Now choose 1.5

    39.Now click on start

    40.Wait

    41.Now you should come across an error saying somthing like this [Game cannot be started] THIS IS COMPLETLY NORMAL

    42.GUESS WHAT 1.5!!!!!

    43.Check SETTINGS>>>>SYSTEM SETTINGS>>>>SYSTEM IFORMATION to check if you have a 1.5

    YOU ARE NOW FINISHED GUIDE #1

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    GUIDE #2

    Ahhh, ISO.. One of the best things you can hope to do with your PSP... ISO is a type of format that lets you play on your PSP..Or in other words, download PSP games to your PSP. There is a simple few steps to do this after you have installed your HENC and devhook.


    GUIDE STARTS HERE

    1.Download The ISO/CSO you want from anywhere. I suggest you download a Torrent.

    2. In the ROOT of your memory stick make a new folder called ISO

    3. Drag the ISO/CSO into that folder

    4. Now boot up HENC

    5.Now boot up Devhook

    6.Now for the fw, choose 2.71

    7.Then while you are still on devhook, click on UMD SELECT

    8.choose your ISO or CSO that you have downloaded

    9.press start

    YOU ARE NOW FINISHED GUIDE #2


    DOES NOT WORK? TRY THIS!
    you dont run devhook twice, just do what this guide says.

    1. Take UMD out of UMD drive (if there is one in)
    2. Boot HenC
    3. Boot Devhook (choosing firmware 2.71 **not the flash version)
    4. Select ISO/CSO you want to play, then press start.
    5. There should be a red anime screen.
    6. Insert any UMD (other than a movie)
    7. scroll over to where the UMD is accesible. There should be a picture for your iso. Just click it and it should play the ISO.

    REMINDERS and How-To-Use:

    2.If i miss a step just tell me and i will fix it as soon as possible

    3.If you have ANY questions to ask about any of this, feel free to ask.If i cannot reply or have no answer to your questions hopefully someone else will answer for you.

    4.Make shure there are no umd in the psp or it wont work...u know that sound wen u put a umd into the psp?wen that sound is on while using hen...hen will just freeze.so either u take out the umd or wait till the sound is done....the sound that u hear wen the umd is spinning inside of the psp is the sound im talkin about.

    No.. its a lot easiar if you don't. Just follow the guide above, and it will work for you, and you can run 1.50 without actually downgrading.

    No problem, if you want to get the custom firmwares, you HAVE to downgrade your PSP.

    can u help meh with something else?? like how to use a gpsp on my psp? or how to get it working?
     
  16. MidnightJ

    MidnightJ Guest

    Well usually, reading the README that comes with most PSP files is your best bet, but all you have to do is copy the gpsp into the GAME folder on your PSP. So put gpsp in PSP/GAME. Then put your roms in the ROMS folder.

    Just make a ISO folder on the root of your PSP, and put the game ISO in there. ISO i find come anywhere from 200MB to 1.6 GB. But i compress them so there smaller.
