    1-Hacking your PSP

    Q:I have a PSP I wanna hack it. any ideas ?

    A:You can follow this guide.
    If you don't understand that guide and you have a PSP 2000/3000
    Follow this guide (Also you can use this guide for updating CFWE/GEN for PSP slims with the unhackable mobo and PSP 3000)

    2-Simple meanings of some words used in the PSP Community

    Q:What's the meaning of XMB ?
    A:It's the cross media bar. Basically , it's the main menu of the psp which includes : ( network - game - music - videos - settings )

    Here is a pic of the XMB :



    Q:What's the meaning of ' root of the memory stick ' ?
    A:It's the first thing you see when you double click your PSP drive letter in your PC . basically it's the place where there are the folders ' PSP-PICTURE-MUSIC-VIDEO-ISO' and other stuff

    Here is a pic of the root of the memory stick :


    3-Fixing problems of isos not showing/game could not be started

    Q:I downloaded an ISO but when i put it in my memory stick it shows as a corrupted data
    A:Where did you put your ISOS ?

    Q:In the Game folder
    A:You don't put the isos there , you put them in the ISO folder in the root of your memory stick. if you don't have an ISO folder then make one

    Q: I put the ISO file in the ISO folder, but still no game. what gives?
    A: If you dont have a PSP/GAME/ folder, (it can remain empty) your MS will read "no games installed", and not show the ISO files you have put in the ISO folder.So format the memory stick from your PSP to create folder structure and stuff ( backup all what you want from your memory stick first )

    Q:The ISOS still don't show up , any other ideas ?
    A:Sure. Make sure the name of the iso/cso is less than 20 characters , otherwise it won't show up

    Q:Urgh , Still doesn't show up , Any other ideas
    A:Try formatting flash1 from advanced in recovery menu . If didn't work then follow the part of hellcat's recovery flasher to reflash firmware


    Q:When i ever run an ISO , it says game couldn't be started (80020321)
    A:Press Select while in XMB , vsh menu appears , Change umd iso mode to m33 driver or sony np9660 (4-How to view VSH Menu)

    Q:When i Press select , nothing appears
    A:Reboot to recovery menu , go to configuration and make sure use vsh menu is set to enabled

    5-How to reboot to recovery menu

    Q:How to reboot to recovery menu ?
    A:Turn off the PSP completely by holding the power button up for about 5 seconds. turn it on holding the R trigger . a menu shall appear called recovery menu

    Q:My PSP is the one with the temp hack so if i turn off the PSP the hack will be gone and i will have to do it again
    A:When in XMB , keep pressing L+R then press square , it'd change between vshmenu/recovery/disabled , and that'd appear on the left side of the screen , if you want recovery menu , then keep it at recovery , and when you press select and you'll be at the recovery menu , same for vsh menu , and disabled means select button would do nothing.
    Keep in mind the recovery menu of 5.03 GEN-A/B are messed up(OK means the option is functioning properly)

    - Togle USB = OK OK
    - Configuration = ok
    - Skip Sony: not work (need not severe)
    - Hide corrupt icons = Skip sony logo
    - game folder HB ok
    - autorun EBOOT ok
    - fake region ok
    - use vsh menu ok
    - XMB USB Device ok
    - Charge device with usb ok - Load Device with USB ok
    Use M33 network update ok
    - Use version TXT ok
    Hide MAC ok
    - Use game categories = ok
    - Reboot in official firmware> not working
    - Run program at = Advanced Menu
    - Advanced CPU SPEED =
    - CPU SPEED = Plugins
    - Plugins = registry hack
    - Registry hack = device suspends
    - Suspend device = reboot in official firmware
    - Reset system = quit
    6-How to play new games which require 5.55+

    Q:This didn't help me , any other ideas
    A:It might be a new game which requires 5.55/6.00/6.10/6.20
    You have two options :
    1-Upgrade to 5.50 GEN-D3 if you have a phat or a slim with a hackable mobo. To upgrade , follow the part down in complicated questions of updating CFW( for 6.20 games, you'll still need to use the part in quote in my guide here to patch them )
    2-If you have a slim with an unhackable mobo/3000 . Then you need to upgrade to 5.03 GEN-C . Follow this guide. ( for 6.20 games, you'll still need to use the part in quote in my guide here )
    If you don't like 5.50 GEN-D3/5.03 GEN-C and want to stay with your current CFW, then you'll be able to play your games but you'll need to patch them first through my guide here

    7-Fixing Chickhen running issues

    Q:ChickHen drives me crazy! it takes a lot of time for me to get it to work
    A:Try this chickhen mod.
    Or this one

    8-How to install plugins

    Q:How to install plugins ?
    A:Follow the readme of the plugin for which file to copy . it will say in the readme put this line to vsh.txt/game.txt/game150.txt or it'll come with the text files it needs. the plugins with their txt files go to SEPLUGINS folder in the root of your memory stick . if you currently have a plugin and wanna install another one and both have lines to be put in your vsh.txt/game.txt/game150.txt . then just open the vsh.txt/game.txt/game150.txt which came with the other plugin you wanna install and copy the lines in them to the correct ones in your SEPLUGINS
    For example : the line copied from your new vsh.txt is copied to your old vsh.txt in your SEPLUGINS folder
    NOTE: To enable your plugins go to recovery menu , plugins and enable or disable the ones you want

    9-Fix PC not reading the PSP memory stick correctly

    Q:My PC reads my memory stick as very small thing drive or read another files which aren't in my memory stick
    A:While in XMB , press select and change usb device to memory stick

    Q: I put the ISO file in the ISO folder, but still no game. what gives?
    A: If you dont have a PSP/GAME/ folder, (it can remain empty) your MC will read "no games installed", and not show the ISO files you have put in the ISO folder.

    we ran into that one last night, again.

    try using mine for posploader if that one is confusing..

    for playing psx games, u will need the popsloader pack for 5.00m33-2, get it from the link below

    -first download the link below

    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/f118...0-m33-t227541/

    -extract it using winRAR or 7zip or etc...

    -u will get a seplugin, after extracting it

    -If you have no plugins installed simply copy over the seplugins folder to the root of your memory stick. If you do, just copy the contents inside the seplugin folder and paste them inside the seplugin folder which u have in the root of ur mem stick

    -after putting the seplugin in the right place, u will have to enter recovery menu by (hold R trigger when starting psp to enter recovery menu,)

    -then enter plugins and enable the popsloader and exit recovery menu

    -thats all, and put the psx games to PSP/GAME/
    and if u want to play it on gen, download the popsloader .prx and just exchange it with the one is on ur psp right now..... (meaning from the one u just now putted)

    very nice guide , but might I add a couple of suggestions and one question

    quoted this one due to the fact some people who are unfimiliar with bricks may assume that although they hear sound or may not even listen for it will follow instructionand will have same results as the fuse is blown just give them a suggestion to first listen look when they get a green light and blank screen then proceed to the following instruction if sound is not present or holding it up to a light doesnt faintly display the xmb

    just a suggestion this is a very good /great guide

    My PSP refuses to turn on , green light with black screen
    A:Can it access recovery menu ?

    1. Q2:No my PSP can't access Recovery menu , So What ?
    A:This means it's full bricked . Follow this guide to make a Pandora battery and magic memory stick to unbrick your PSP . Click here

    Yet suggestion include if you have just the green light < but if you can here the start up backlight fuse has blown. whay to verify hold psp to a light at an angle will be able to see the xmb faintly.

    next FYI for me does joysen compatible with 5.50 GEN-B or any Gen for that matter
    some one asked me and i was unsure of the answer

    all and all great guide Me myself will for sure be using it
