    Need some help. I followed the tutorials and everthing went fine for me, now my psp screen is blacking out at random after modding I can still hear sounds when moving around the XMB but no visuals. Someone please help me here. I have PSP 3000.

    hi, first of all, thanks for all the hardwork done. i believe all of us really appreciate it. i managed to get my psp3000 5.03 to work the first time i ran the ChickHen and CFW as per your instructions.

    all my games are playing well from the memory stick. however, i just want to confirm that after we run the hack, should the version now be 5.03 M33 or 5.03 MHU. Mine now states MHU but i dont have a problem. Thanks for the confirmation

    Well , if you can play games , and you're not having any problems with it , it's fine. So ya , no reasons to worry..



    Could be an internal problem, reset your PSP and re-install the ChickHEN and the CFWe..

    yes, aim for pandora , you have 3 options to choose :

    -find someone with already modded PSP that will let you borrow it for 5 minutes to convert your battery to a Pandora
    -buy it . (take a loook at this one , only 6$)
    -hardmod it. you will have to open your battery and cut down .

    you also need magic memory stick , but this isn't a problem , you will need a memory stick PRO DUO ( 62 MB or higher ) , and a program that will write special files to your memory stick in order to boot in service mode along with the battery ( you can find lots of tut over the internet )


    CFWe 3.60 added ! enjoy !

    Okay this is a great guide I understand everything about this but what is this new thing called CFWEnabler 3.60. I'm not sure if i need it at all. And i've seen that if you get this it lets you put games onto you ISO folder but why would i need that when just following your guide will let me do that. I have a phat psp so is this CFWEnabler 3.60 only for people who have 3000 psp's?

    Yes, it's designed for un-hackable motherboards , TA088v3 ( from the latest 2k series ) and TA090v3 ( PSP-3000 )

    It's just an 'intelligent' way of running games off your mem stick without the Custom Firmware installed into the flash ( internal memory ) . It's not compatible with the oldest psp's.

    Recovery flasher is the best option if you have any classic PSP or Slim & Lite ( 2k ) w/ any motherboard different than TA088v3 .

    I found out that the PSP screen blacking out has nothing to do with the mod but its a problem with the backlight on the PSP. Unknown to me the PSP suffered a fall.

    hi PSPgamen

    Still a noob so need confirmation on ur latest CFW360.

    Im already running good using the CFW351, so do I need to do a reset, rerun the ChickHen again before running the CFW360 OR just run the CFW360 only. Thanks again.

    @milkyjo

    you can't play downloaded games without a 'special' custom firmware , your firmware is sony official that doesn't recognize .ISO/.CSO games ..follow this guide i wrote , it's probably the best for you , or better use pandora + magic memory stick but it may cost you some money/effort :

    follow this guide, credit to larrylje, probably the best guide you can find

    this method will hack hack your PSP entering service mode with a special battery aka Pandora and a modified memory stick aka Magic Memory Stick , it's the best hacking method that will work on your PSP .

    My method , wrote in this guide will install CFW too , and you will not need Pandora and MMS for it . It's your option. If you have any more questions/problems feel free to ask in here.


    @pskr

    No , since it's the brand new PSP-3000 , the motherboard makes it unhackable , use the CFWEnabler guide instead.


    @samoax7

    Press select in the main menu and change UMD ISO Mode to 'Sony NP9660'. If that didn't work either your ISO file is a bad rip , or you haven't succesfully installed the Custom Firmware.


    @coolangel

    There's no need to open/mount the ISO file, PSP will read the ISO/CSO files , so just copy & paste the image into the ISO folder on your memory stick ROOT.

    My friend gave me his old PSP-1000 and it's still at firmware 3.30. Would you recommend upgrading and using this method or using the Lumines 3.5 downgrade method?

    Also, if I were to put this sort of custom firmware onto my PSP, would I be able to use the official updates or change my firmware back to the official firmware?

    I have a question. My wife has the Ratchet and Clank v3001 PSP. Would this CFWEnabler 3.60 enable it to flash to memory card I guess? And if so, can the PSP be turned off and back on without having to reflash it like the chicken 5.03 way?

    BTW I posted earlier about hacking my PSP Slim 2000 series. Got the Pandora. Works awesome. Used it to also flash my two boys 1000 series. Took less than 5 minutes to flash them both.

    I have a 3001 as well. That PSP will need to start with OFW 5.03 then follow PSPgamen's guide (post 1) to load some CFW. Once the PSP is all set you can put it in sleep mode and it will stay CFW. If you turn the unit off then you have to go through chickHEN then CFEnabler. That only takes but a minute or two btw, never as long as the first time CFEnabler runs.

    Works great for me. Hope that helped. :)
