PSP 3000 firmware 5.03 hacked

PSP firmware 5.03 has been hacked by Team Typhoon. This allows you to run custom code on the PSP by taking advantage of the tiff exploit. You’ll have to wait to download the hack though, they haven’t released it yet. This means those of you still on 5.02 or still using the little blue tool will be able to upgrade soon.

    Now I can stop regretting running the update.

  2. xrazorwirex says:

    Even if this is legit – it’s still gonna be a while before someone develops cfw and finds a way to implement that, I’m sure.

  3. cat says:

    This thing can only run homebrew, it can’t run ISO/PSX games. =/

  4. dustin says:

    it is a start. i remember back in the day buying gta just to run a few homebrew games. that later got me into programming again. i didn’t make anything worthwhile or even release anything but it got me looking at C++ again. eventually dax or someone will make the psp 3000 run cfw. good work guys.

  6. Chris says:

    how do I install it and hoe do I use it on the psp 3000 and does it play emus and roms on it now that its hacked?

  7. pUthY says:

    Hmmmmmmm! How can i run ISO on PSP-3000?

  8. _EX says:

    So before I get my hopes up what exactly does this allow us to do?

    Just run custom code? or have they got some apps to take advantage of this lapse in security?

    Will there be a custom firmware soon?

  9. kurye says:

    it’s done

  10. Decius says:

    The HEN can only run a limited amount of Homebrew (Unsigned code) That goes for all psp’s. There is no support for the playing of ISO’s or CSO’s yet.

    Just gotta wait untill they release a working CFW, It took them about a month or 2 from first finding out the exploit in the lib tiff to release HEN..

    So likely hood of seeing CFW in just a “few days”is unlikely im afraid =[

  11. Zensthoth says:

    I used this update to run psp tools which then let me softmod my battery into a pandora. once this is done along with a magic memory stick you can load a permanent custom firmware that will stay on unlike the chickHEN which only last until power down. Came in very handy since I didn’t know anyone with a hacked PSP I could use and didn’t feel like cracking open my only battery. afterwards I just reflashed the eprom in the battery to the origanl serial and works great.

  12. _EX says:

    @ Zensthoth

    will what you did work for a 3000?

  13. Yarrrrgh says:

    @ _ex

    No, you’ll brick your PSP if you try to do that with a PSP 3000 or the PSP 2000 with the 88v3 motherboard.

    It works on all other PSPs however.

  14. _EX says:

    Good thing I asked then

  15. Samuel says:

    If it only runs homebrew then all you need to do is run a loader to load up games like in 150ofw. There is plenty of ram implemented to run smoothly

  16. jaq says:

    yes you can run emulators and use homwbrew apps and games, its legit and its working.. unfortunately as of now it cant run cso/iso but still big thanks to davee and his team. hopefully someone will pacth iso/cso loader on our psp bright

  17. jaq says:

    chickHEN will work with psp 3000 series and it will not brick ur psp because it will not touch the flash of it..

  18. mj says:

    is that also work in asia version of psp 3000 or only us version? how do we install?

  29. hunter says:

    ok cool it says it runs (HEN)… big deal. Can it run .iso’s or not!!!

  30. rockmandensetsu says:

    will this work on anything lower than 5.03? and will it work on psp3000… i know noob questions, but i don’t want to rape my psp >.<

  31. rockmandensetsu says:

    plus, what kind of homebrew? i mainly want emulators so will they work?

  32. _EX says:

    @ Sadfasdf.
    There is a link on this page to it retard. 9 comments in 10 min isnt going to get you what you want any sooner.

    @ Hunter.
    Not yet. ISO/CSO support hasnt been made for it. It may only be a matter of time. Apparently the creator of Chickhen didnt want ISO support so isnt going to help.

    @ rockmandensetsu.

    It will ONLY WORK on FW 5.03, nothing else.
    It runs homebrew apps. From what I know homebrew is its own type so anything homebrew will work. All emulators work and homebrew games do. It may just be ISO support that isnt supported

    This is the link I used and it lead me to help and you may not even need anything else other than this site so at least read this before whinning

  33. rockmandensetsu says:


    i updated and done it xD yay n64 on psp finally

    birng on the cfw :)

  34. PspHacKeRFoRLiFe says:

    Yes it is finally here but not to stay RE MORE

    if you turn your psp all the way off it will make it go away then you have to through the process of enabling it.

    But hit me up

  35. rockmandensetsu says:


    not a lengthy process….

    plus the new beta of daedelus made my psp crash when i tried to play paper mario

  36. name says:

    omg thats so kool but my psp did not bring with usb for some reason i gotta buy it]=| i hope they get cfw soon

  37. Finally after hunting so many rubishy blogs, I finally find the information I have been looking for, thanks!

  38. free psp go says:

    great blog and theme did you design this or was it a free theme?

  39. just found this blog via twitter some excellent info thank you.

  40. rockmandensetsu says:

    i’ve been reading on forums, that this doesn’t always work for people…when it does work for me(running 3000) i start up my psp then turn it partially off the flash save thingie, and take out my memory stick and put it back in, and it works, bad way of explaining but i hope it’s partially understandable

  41. rockmandensetsu says:

    doesn’t work for me*

  42. Wtf!? says:

    ,hey when will u release a cfw for psp 3000??:-P

  43. MeMeME says:

    just so you guys know,psp 3000 has just gotten a cutsom firmware.sorta. they used the hen exploit, to run their….french so u guys can translate yourselves.

  44. gremmel says:

    Well yeah umm…. my version is 5.50 … I guess I should’ve came here before I updated cause it don’t work

  45. Zaq says:

    are there certain emulators that dont work with this HEN? because i keep trying to install a GBA one in here, but it keeps freezing when i load roms

  46. Zaq says:

    oh and the gba emulator is uogpsp kai

  47. makoy says:

    i just had my psp 3000 using the firmware 5.03.
    so far there are no hangups to the games that i had played. Great job guys

  48. squall0833 says:

    Yes, it works on psp3000, iso/PSX also works, but got some bugs in recovery mode,
    it doesn’t touch ur flash0, so ur psp would be fine,

    My advice,

    If you use ChickHEN + GEN-A CFW on PSP3k,
    ONLY for ISO/CSO and homebrews which does not touch ur flash0,


  49. justin says:

    since it runs homebrew couldnt you just run despar v8 or something

  50. justin says:

    also you can change ur cold boot by using 2 homebrew apps that do not touch ur flash0
