    You will need to 1st format new memory card in the psp system menu...2nd go to USB connect and create the PSP/GAME/UPDATE folder...ONLY the UPDATE folder you should be creating...any more questions. I created simple step by step instructions on how to put CFW on PSP

    In order to go backwards to a previous version you will need Hellcats Recovery Flasher 1.60 go to this link

    http://downloads.exophase.com/521/hellcats-recovery-flasher-160/

    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.

    When I open my UMD door I can not even see a part of the circuit board. Does that mean I have the hackable or unhackable series? I see no marking what so ever. Do I need to take the PSP apart to know for sure?

    Hello People, Sorry for this complete "noob" question. My girlfriend loaned me her PSP, its a 1001 fat version(I also picked up a 4 gig memory card). She was not using it at all and thought I would enjoy it. I jumped right in and updated the firmware to version 6... Then I started reading the forums... Sigh.. My question is simple. Can it be downgraded to 5.03 OFW without a Pandora battery and magic stick? I have been reading the forums and they some great guides and if its possible I am comfortable trying it. I just really don't want to brick it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Still at the same road block. I downloaded the PSPident file which is a .RAR file. It was not in a folder so I made as folder in my psp in the games directory title PSPIdent as shown on the tutorial ans put the file into that folder.

    When I loaded the psp and went to start that file it shows corrupted data. I notice in the instructons that the ChickenHen must be enabled, but the entire start of this problem is because I can't enable the ChickenHen because I am running version 6.00. Should I skip step a and go to b for psp's you know are not hackable?

    Chickhen - and therefore running pspident can only be done from firmware 5.03 - if you are on 6.00 it is never going to work.

    If you have an unhackable PSP you still need 5.03 as to hack it you use Chickhen.

    If you are sure it is hackable then Pandora is your only option, if its not hackable then you are stuck with official firmware

    That's what I was afraid of. I just upgraded to 6.00 yesterday too! How can I know for sure if it is hackable with Pandora. I just bought a produo 16GB ms also. Will this memory stick work so all I need is a pandora battery?

    Alright here it goes, I know it says if you have a version 5.03 or higher it may not work, but this was made a bit ago so I am wondering if there is any way I can do it now. My PSP is vversion 5.51. So please let me know if there is anything I can do about this. I really wanna be able to like download "Tales of Destiny" and play it on there :p

    Sorry for another post but I also downloaded "pandora" software, my question is if I can not do anything about my version being 5.51 [slim 3000] than is there anything I can do to get my PSP playing games off the memory card?

    No - if you try you will end up with a brick.

    However there is rumour of an exploit using Medal of Honour UMD, nothing concrete as yet though. What ever you do, if you want CFW at some point I would not update

    So basically there is nothing I can do to get this working?
    Like I cant do anything to play a downloaded ps1 game off the internet via my memory stick?

    Hi, i'm trying to hack my psp , already have 5.03 and can't get chickhen to run. I've tried aroun 30 times. I've tried 3 different .tiff
    and .bin files

    I ve turned off the UMD autostart off.
    i don't know where to turn the chace off (please tell me)
    it either freezes when i go to the photos and shuts off, or i can see the thumbnail and nothing happens.

    Its a Pink Psp (japanese) i know its hackeable. (IC1003)

    any help? please!!!!

    Did you try going to the chickhen Photo folder and scroll down to the last file as fast as possible? it should work, but then i don't have a japanese psp version tho.

    Try getting the version i used:
    ChickHENR2: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=X3G6KM0D
    ChickHENR2 slim fix: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3SYFOY92
    CFWEnabler: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=V1KJGQJP



    I got homebrew by using chickhen and cfw enable on my psp of 4.? non-hackable psp slim piano black without any problem.

    Once you get it to played backup games, it gets boring, so i'd sold my psp.

    I forgot to tell it's a PHAT/FAT psp. And i've tried versions of chickhen with various images, and ones with just the .tiff file.

    still i haven't got it to work. HALP HALP HALP!

    Okayyy i found out the problem, i had to set the character settings to US. Now im running 5.00 M33-6 but.....

    I CAN'T LOAD ISO's!!!!!!!

    i tried 2 cso's and they work pefectly fine (patapon & luxor)
    then i tried yugioh tagforce 3 and Disgaea, and not even the image shows up on the psp game menu...

    i tried the fastloader 7, no success.
    Booted in recovery mode to set homebrew to kernel 1.50 and enabled plain UMD/ISO.

    Still nothing. Also tried compressing the ISO to CSO but it just starts, stays on the "now loading" screen...

    any ideas? thanks alot (i'm the one with a FAT/PINK/JAP psp)

    thanks in advance!
