Posted by admin as Others
This tutorial explains on how to hack your PSP 3000 (Brite) in a step by step procedure.This tutorial is based on my personal experience and I’m sure it will work for you as well.Let’s Go!
UPDATE: PSP 3000s with versions above 5.03 can now be hacked! Try to check out these links for more information: http://forums.dashhacks.com/f133/tutorial-installing-6-20-pro-b-4-permanent-t284028/ and http://forums.dashhacks.com/f133/tutorial-installing-6-35-pro-b2-t272834/
(Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with the above links, don’t know if it works or not and haven’t tried their tutorial.)
Step 1: Check if your firmware version is 5.03
Check your system software version is 5.03 by navigating into
Settings > System Settings > System information.
If your software version is 5.03 then skip the next step,else proceed Step 3.
Step 2: Update your firmware version to 5.03
Note:If you update your firmware version above 5.03,it will make your PSP not hackable.And it will cannot be reverted back to older firmware version.
Step 3: Download and install chickHEN R2
Download chickHEN R2(requires firmware version 5.03) by clicking here.
Copy whole ChickHEN folder (which contains 4 gif files ChickHENa-d and slim.tiff) to your PICTURE folder.
Then copy the h.bin file into your root directory.Root directory is where you will see the PICTURE,MUSIC and VIDEO folders.
Restore your PSP’s Default settings in SYstem Settings > Restore Default Settings.
In your PSP, go to Photo > Memory Stick.
Don’t do anything.Allow the photos to be loaded and it should show some colors flash and it will restart itself.
If it does not restart and just turned off, go into PHOTO > Memory Stick again.
After it has restarted,check your sytem version.If it reads “5.03 ChickHEN R2″,then ChickHEN is successfully installed.
Step 4: Download and install Custom Firmware 5.03 GEN-C
Download Custom Firmware 5.03 GEN-C here.
Extract the 5.03 GEN-C files to your computer.
Copy the GEN-C folder (in the extracted file PSP > GAME > GEN-C) in your PSP (PSP > GAME).
Disconnect the PSP from the Computer.
Run the 5.03 GEN-C Updater in Game > Memory Stick
Follow the process in updating,last command will be to press X.PSP will reboot.
Check your System Information ,system software must be “5.03 GEN-C (Full)”.
–After these steps,do not let your PSP completely lost its battery power or perform complete shutdown.Standby Power down is ok.Complete shutdown means you push slide the on/off button longer than just a little slide to turn it off.If battery has been drained or your PSP performs complete shutdown,then you will perfom these steps again(except for step 1 and 2).If you will load the 5.03 GEN-C for another time (for example, your PSP battery has drained or has forced shutdown),hold the “L” button when running again the updater.
How to put downloaded games in your PSP
Create a folder named “ISO” in your PSP root directory.Root directory is where you will see the PICTURE, MUSIC and VIDEO folders.
Put your .iso or .cso in that folder.You can download PSP games from different websites.A quick search in Google will do you good.
In your PSP, go to GAME > Memory Stick.
Choose your game and ride on.
