    Hooray!!! I found a great youtube video on how to upgrade from 3.40 OE-A to 5.00 M33-6 on a PSP fat 1001. Just got a couple questions on upgradng to 5.03. I downloaded the 5.03. The instructions say to create an UPDATE folder and put it in the GAME folder. Well, in my game folder I already have a RECOVERY folder from the 5.00 M33-6 FW. Can I just add the UPGRADE folder next to the RECOVERY folder and keep going, or do I have to delete the RECOVERY folder?

    Godzilla,
    Yes you can just add that folder there.

    Only if they had the same folder/file name would have a conflict...

    Just go to your memory stick on your psp and go to games, it should just be listed there, just select it and press X

    Thanks for the guide. I decided to finally update my fatty from 3.8 something. Everything worked without any issues. I then followed a guide on another site to upgrade to 5.50 gen-d full. Sadly, there still isn't many good games to play on this thing.

    Hi! I have a quick question. I'm currently in Japan and I'm thinking about buying a PSP 3000 here. However, I will only buy it if its hackable. Also, since I actually live in Europe, I need to be able to use it there with european games.

    Can anyone tell me if this is feasible? I saw in several parts of the thread that the new mobo of the PSP cannot be hacked but I don't know if this situation is different now.

    Sorry if the question is a bit dumb but I have 0 experience with PSPs.

    Hi

    I have followed everything step for step and no problem until I had to install the CFW.

    I've got a PSP 1006 so I'm assuming this is the PSP classic or PSP slim?! Therefore I have downloaded and followed the last couple of steps where the recovery version is 1.60.

    I have loaded OFW 5.03 and ChickHEN, my current system software information is: "Version 5.03 ChickHEN"

    I run the "HC Recovery Flasher v1.60". Firstly I get a NOTICE which I agreed to and the it goes through to the program.
    The version selected above is "Target FW: 5.00". I select the first option: Install CFW (of version selected above) and then select "do not reset (format) settings" and then "Yes, keep settings, I have faith!".

    It then states that it's installing the firmware. The updater used to extract FW: 500.PBP. I get an error "Checking updater .PBP.... CHECKSUM FAILED!" and then it cancels the install.

    I then try it for the second time with the same selections. I get the error "Extracting special updater .PRX...." Error 80020139 appears.

    Please advise what to do???

    Thanks :)

    Just wanted to throw out a TY for makin it so easy to cfw my psp.I upgraded to 5.03 ofw from 3.52 ofw. Then ran the ChickHen exploit as directed.Although software only showed 5.03 chickhen without the R2, I was able to upgrade to 5.00 M33-6 without any problems.You guys are awesome,being new to this I really appreciate it.

    Thanks for making this guide, however, im having (a lot) of trouble getting Chickehen to run. I've tried a load of different files from other guides etc. and I still can't get it to work. Even the one-click easy installer didn't work on my system. I've got a FAT PSP1004, i've disabled USB and UMD auto-start, using US (437) character set, restored default settings and formatted my memory stick.I've tried chickhen files with just the tiff image, with the tiff and 4 gifs, with UMD in drive and out, everything I can think of but still no luck. When I go into Photos>mem stick>chickhen nothing happens. The images all load and nothing happens..If I open eggsploit, my PSP crashes and then SHUTSDOWN, it doesn't restart. On rare occasions it will freeze before the folder opens, and once or twice before the thumbnails load but again, it only ever shutsdown, it has never restarted. Any help would be much appreciated!

    EDIT: Also I guess I should clarify I have updated my firmware to 5.03 and I don't know if it makes a difference, but my tiff image is always at the TOP of the list of images in the folder? Everywhere i've read it says to scroll down to the bottom for it, but its at the top for me so don't know if that is in any way relevant.
