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.
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.
This thing can only run homebrew, it can’t run ISO/PSX games. =/
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.
They have released this…
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?
Hmmmmmmm! How can i run ISO on PSP-3000?
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?
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 =[
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.
will what you did work for a 3000?
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.
Good thing I asked then
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
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
chickHEN will work with psp 3000 series and it will not brick ur psp because it will not touch the flash of it..
is that also work in asia version of psp 3000 or only us version? how do we install?

(most of the words are spelled wrong i know i dont feel like fixing them i am also bord)
im finished i wont ask any thing elese if you answer this
ok cool it says it runs (HEN)… big deal. Can it run .iso’s or not!!!
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 >.<
plus, what kind of homebrew? i mainly want emulators so will they work?
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.
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.
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 http://www.psp-hacks.com/2009/05/06/chickhen-homebrew-enabler-r2-released/
i updated and done it xD yay n64 on psp finally
birng on the cfw :)
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 email@example.com
not a lengthy process….
plus the new beta of daedelus made my psp crash when i tried to play paper mario
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
Finally after hunting so many rubishy blogs, I finally find the information I have been looking for, thanks!
great blog and theme did you design this or was it a free theme?
just found this blog via twitter some excellent info thank you.
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
doesn’t work for me*
,hey when will u release a cfw for psp 3000??:-P
just so you guys know,psp 3000 has just gotten a cutsom firmware.sorta. they used the hen exploit, to run their program.www.pspgen.com….french so u guys can translate yourselves.
Well yeah umm…. my version is 5.50 … I guess I should’ve came here before I updated cause it don’t work
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
oh and the gba emulator is uogpsp kai
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
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,
If you use ChickHEN + GEN-A CFW on PSP3k,
ONLY for ISO/CSO and homebrews which does not touch ur flash0,
DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING IN FLASH0, YOU DID IT YOU GET A PERMANENT BRICK!
AND DO NOT USE ANY HOMEBREWS WHICH MAY ACCESS YOUR FLASH0! ! ! !
since it runs homebrew couldnt you just run despar v8 or something
also you can change ur cold boot by using 2 homebrew apps that do not touch ur flash0
