    Default [Guide] New To The PSP Scene? Don't Know Where To Start With Hacking? Start Here!

    Hey there CSpot! Just wanted to make a new guide on how to hack your PSP, whether its a 1000, 2000 or a 3000.

    I am doing this because I am noticing more and more people everyday are asking how to hack their PSPs, or how to get to this CFW or that CFW, and which one is better, and so forth.

    So to stop most of the thread making from people who are new to the PSP Scene (n00bs), and people who are not new but still don't know what the hell they are doing (nubs), they should check this thread out and post if they need help.

    I will upload all the tools needed to hack your PSP.

    Note: Just to take some extra saftey precautions, please do not upgrade your PSP past 5.03 Official Firmware! Even if you have a PSP 1000 or PSP 2000 v1/v2!

    Legend
    PSP Phat = PSP 1000
    PSP Slim = PSP 2000
    PSP Brite = PSP 3000
    FW = Firmware
    OFW = Official Firmware
    CFW = Custom Firmware
    HEN = Hombrew ENabler
    MoBo = MotherBoard
    v1 MoBo = Hackable via Pandora/HEN CFW
    v2 MoBo = Hackable via Pandora/HEN CFW
    v3 MoBo = Hackable via HEN CFW ONLY
    MS = Memory Stick
    MMS = Magic Memory Stick
    DAX = Dark Alex, the maker of SE/OE/M33 CFWs
    GEN = GENyUS, the makers of GEN CFWs
    Green Bold Text = Clickable Links To Pictures
    Blue Bold Text = Clickable Links To Other Pages/Threads
    Red Bold Text = Must Read/Caution
    Orange Bold Text = Download Links

    Now to find out what kind of PSP MoBo you have on your PSP to see if you can install a Full CFW or HEN CFW.

    The Difference between a Full CFW and HEN CFW is that:

    Full CFWs you are able to Shut Down your PSP fully, and when you turn it back on your CFW will be loaded. Full CFW is more stable and has Recovery Mode.

    HEN CFWs will lose their CFW when you Shut Down the PSP fully, so to keep that from happening, people put their PSP with HEN CFW on Sleep Mode instead. HEN CFWs do not have Recovery Mode except for 5.03 GEN for HEN CFW.

    IF your PSP is a Phat a.k.a PSP-1000, Slim a.k.a PSP-2000, or a Brite a.k.a PSP-3000 and below OFW 5.03, then you can hack your PSP. To do so, you have to:

    Step 1: Upgrade your PSP to 5.03 OFW, unless you are already on that OFW.

    Step 2: Download ChickHEN R2, and install it, and get ChickHEN R2 Mode to load.
    How To Run ChickHEN on PSP Phat

    How To Run ChickHEN on PSP Slim/Brite

    Tips On How To Run ChickHEN for PSP Phat/Slim/Brite


    Step 3: Do this step ONLY if you have a PSP Slim. When you get ChickHEN R2 to load, download and install PSPIdent. This will tell you what kind of MotherBoard you have on your PSP Slim. If your MoBo is a TA-085 v1 or v2 or a TA-088 v1 or v2, then you will be able to install a Full CFW. If your MoBo is a TA-088 v3, then you will have to install a HEN CFW.

    If your PSP is a Phat or a Slim TA-085/TA-088 v1 or v2, then click the first spoiler.
    If your PSP is a Slim TA-088 v3 or a Brite, then click the second spoiler.

    PSP Phat or Slim TA-085/TA-088 v1 or v2


    Step 4: Now that you have ChickHEN R2 loaded, you have to download and install HellCat's Recovery Flasher v1.60.

    If you want 5.00 M33-6, Open this Spoiler


    If you want 5.5. GEN-D3, Open this Spoiler


    Slim TA-088 v3 or Brite


    For PSPs with Full CFW, not HEN CFW!



    If you think I should add something, please tell me as it will help other people in need.

    If you need help, just post in this thread and I will get back to you ASAP!

    If you want to learn and know how to put plugins in your PSP and how to enable them, I would suggest that you would check out Akira's "How to Install Plugins" guide.

    Nice work Leo! This will be stuck for sure.

    Only thing you might want to mention is if those YouTube videos are not by you, then maybe add something along the lines of "These YouTube videos are not mine and belong to their respectful owners."

    This should cut down on the threads or at least make it easier to guide someone who makes a thread.
