    Experiencing similar:
    have PSP phat (1003) with v3.9
    Went through the steps above...
    I updated to v5.3,
    Then ran chickHEN and confirmed that it was installed.
    Then installed 5.00 M33-6 and changed UMD iso to M33 driver.
    Formatted memory stick.
    I copy the game with .iso extention into a new folder i created named "ISO".
    When I disconnect my PSP from my PC, and go GAME > MEMORY STICK, it says "There are no games". I have tried two different games with the same result.
    It initially did not work, as I had WinRAR associated with .iso file extentions. Sorted this out, thinking it would resolve this "there are no games" message, but no luck.

    Anyone know what i am doing wrong?

    I have managed to get it to show the games (no longer says "There are no games") however:

    1) when using a .cso game:
    It loads a black screen (looks like the game wants to start)

    2) When using an .iso game:
    It returns error 80020148
    which seems to mean according to another site:
    PRX type unsupported - Explanation: This error comes up when you try to use emulators, homebrew, etc. on a psp with version 1.52 and higher.

    Hello All,

    I have a PSP-Brite ( 3004)OFW 5.01
    After reading for 2-3 days I now know its Partially Hackable with Chicken+CFW Enabler
    So, I have upgraded to
    OFW 5.03
    +
    Chicken enabled ( after a dozen attempts phew..!)
    ..
    Now, I have CFWE 3.6 & I also have a M33.6 CFW Eboot file.
    But, The CFWE does not enable any CFW !! :(

    < My System Info reads : 5.03 ChickHEN ... i.e. chickHEN is fine >

    Could some one please elaborate the process of CFWE i.e. what to do with the "popsloader"
    basically how to get to CFW from ChickHEN 5.03 on a PSP 3000

    Attn all that are having troubles:

    psp2000/3000

    psp1000


    These are videos that show step-by-step on how to mod using the aforementioned process (at the beginning of this thread) - for phat psps and slim psps.. If you're having issues installing chickHEN or completing the process/finalizing settings as per this forum - try the videos. Good luck to you all.

    I have an old school Dark Alex/Pandora Battery mod on a fat black PSP. i do not kow which version it is or what motherboard it is, however when I removed the battery it says PSP 1001. When I check to see if I have <5.03, my PSP says 3.40 OE-A. Per your guide you state ,"If the version is 5.03 , skip this part and follow the guide below to install ChickHEN . If you have a lower version follow this GUIDE in order to install OFW 5.03."
    First question is my PSP hackable?

    Second I know 3.40 is less than 5.03 as numbers go but, is this what you mean by version being <5.03?

    If so, after I follow the 4 steps to download, connect, copy .eboot, and run, what which step comes next? Oh, when you say Run the update from your PSP, how do you Run it?

    After that which step comes next..
    b) Loading Chickhen r2? or some other title down on the page?
    Thank you for your time.

    godzilla, you say right here, "When I check to see if I have <5.03, my PSP says 3.40 OE-A"

    I am thinking that means you already have a custom firmware version of
    3.40 OE-A.

    Where did you get your psp?

    I bought it a long time a go. I followed a tutorial a few years back on how to make a pandora's battery and how to install CFW back then.

    Ok update on what i have done so far. I followed the instructions on how to add 5.03. I am still wondering how to run it. I went to my memory chip on the psp menu under games and saw an icon saying 5.03. I pressed X and I think (ran) it. the looked like it rebooted but gave me an error message saying "The game could not be started (DADADADA)" what does that mean?

    The I followed the instructions for "FOR CLASSIC PSP ( 1000 )" figuring I have a PSP 1001 it would work. I follwed the following instructions "Navigate to your PHOTOS folder , and enter the ChickHEN folder. And wait, you will see some images, these will start to load thumbnails.Go all the way down to the last image. Your PSP may freeze and reset." After following the insructions my PSP froze BUT it froze when I open the chickHEN folder. It did not allow me to scroll down to the bottom of the images. It freezes on the first image and shuts down. I can not get past the first image without it freezeing and shitting off. Any ideas on what I need to do. Remember I have an old MOD going way back to almost the first MOD. Is this the problem?
