Help: I dicked with my CFW and now programs wont run
Hey guys, I have a little bit of a problem... I originally used this guide in order to hack my Slim PSP. Everything went great, I was on CFW and my system was at 5.00 M33-6. I put on SNES9x and started to play Super Mario World. I told my friend that my SNES emulator was a little bit sluggish and flickery, and he told me that it might be because I was on 5.00 instead of 5.03, so he said I should probably just upgrade to that. I did that, and now my PSP shuts off whenever I try and run any program. ISOs, Emulators, everything. I tried doing a bunch of stuff to try and fix it or revert it back, but to no avail. Right now my PSP is on 5.03 M33 and shuts off whenever I try to run anything... I was wondering if you guys had ever seen anything like this and if it's fixable. I'd really appreciate any help, this thing seemed like it was the answer to all of my problems in playing those few SNES RPGs I could never get my hands on, etc.
Should I try redoing Hellcat? It seems ChickHEN is already running since whenever I load the images again they wont re-crash my PSP.
okay first there is no 5.03m33, there is 5.03 gen, 5.03 tdp, 5.03 mhu,
because some of the things you wrote dont quite add up properly i must ask these questions first:
is your psp a slim or brite?
in other words 2000 or 3000?
does it have the ta-088v3 motherboard?
when you say this guide to hack it, what guide do you mean?
did you use a pandora battery?
or did you use chickhen plus hellcats recovery flasher to originally hack it?
on a side note for snes9x there are options to increase the speed no matter what firmware you use, so your friend was a little off with his advice.
My system software reads 5.03 M33. I believe after I did Scorpus's PSP hackign tutorial, it was 5.00 M33-6. I then got that bad advice from my friend, and I then re-ran the files for the update to 5.03 (which I had originally used in Scorpus's guide) to try and get back up to 5.03. I *think* that's all I did afterwards, but I can't completely remember.
1. My PSP is a slim. It originally came with 3.96 or therabouts on it.
2. 2000 i assume
3. No idea. I thought you couldnt hack that? I definitely had it hacked, I was running ISOs on it and emulators, and I can still press R on bootup to go to the CFW screen.
4. Scorpus's hacking PSP tutorial
5. No Pandora battery was used.
6. Yeah, I used ChickHEN + Hellcats Recovery Flasher
And yeah I orignally tried overclocking to 333 Mhz or w/e on SNES9x but it still had some flicker and lag on SMW.
yes you can just redo the hellcats recovery flasher.
as for snes9x did you try increasing the speed in the emulator itself, also adjusting the framerate will help with speed/flickering issues.
You sure? I get nervous as shit about this stuff, and I could TECHNICALLY still return it if I really had to, though Id much rather have a hacked PSP, obviously.
What do you mean adjusting the speed of the emulator itself? I set frameskip to auto and clocked the PSP up, didnt know there was another thing I could do.
yes in sure just redo the recovery flasher exactly as the first time you did it.
snes9x, frame rate controls the speed, play around with it on different settings for different games and you'll see what i mean.
I just loaded up Hellcats recovery flasher, and the same thing happened.
It froze on the white PSP screen and shut off.
take out the battery and put it back in, to be sure your starting from scratch (no chickhen)
then run the chichen r2 and the hellcats recovery flasher.
you do know to check the system software version in the system menu to be sure chichen loaded right?
That's the thing: I think ChickHEN is still operational in some form, because when I put the chickHEN files on and click on them to have them crash my PSP, they wont.
They do nothing, and the last of the 5 files just says "unsupported image"
take out the battery, wait a minute, then put it back in and turn it on,
goto the system settings
goto system information
then tell me what it says next to system software
