    I. INTRODUCTION


    Spoiler:

    Hopefully with this tutorial we can help people get to the latest available firmware. I will not cover homebrew enabling for unhackable psp's as i cannot write anything better different than this.

    This is a compilation of other tutorials presented in a way that is hopefully easy to understand for everyone.
    Of course any suggestions/help would be greately appreciated!

    It is a combined effort of tribfather and myself.Special thanks to Neon Knight for his help and support!


    II. CREDITS


    Spoiler:

    Credit goes first to Kamenrider; I have used a LOT of his videos. Secondly, Scorpus for "the hack your psp mega thread." Also, Organised_chaos for his "hacks for unhackable psp's."
    And Tribfather, for his "tutorial on installing plugins" and everybody else that may shown by any linksi have posted.

    I have asked and received permission to use the material for this guide from all the people mentioned above.



    III. F.A.Q.s
    Spoiler:


    Some very basic stuff

    1) What PSP model do I have?

    Just check the sticker at the bottom right of the psp. At the end of your device there is a series of numbers; you will find one of the following:

    PSP-100X This is the first PSP model the Phat (psp 1000).
    PSP-200X This is the second model the PSP Slim (psp 2000).
    PSP-300X This is the third and most recent model also known as the PSP Brite (psp 3000).

    NOTE: The X represents the final of the 4 numbers that states the region of the psp that is not
    important to the hacking process.

    Regions of psp's
    PSP-1000-Japan
    PSP-1001-US/North America
    PSP-1002-Austrila/New Zealand
    PSP-1003-UK
    PSP-1004-Europe
    PSP-1005-Korea
    PSP-1006-Hong Kong/Singapore
    PSP-1007-Taiwan
    PSP-1008-Russia
    PSP-1009-China


    2) What is fully hackable, semi-hackable and unhackable psp?

    A fully hackable is a psp that can be hacked permanently.After the process you will not have to do it again.
    Semi-hackable is a psp that can be hacked, but every time you shut down the device(not sleep mode) you will have to hack it again.
    Unhackable is a psp that can only run some homebrew and NO backed up iso/cso games from the memory stick.

    3) What is a pandora battery and a magic memory stick(mms)?

    It is a special battery and a memory stick with certain files on it, that combined, they can hack a psp or unbrick (fix) it in almosy every software issue. It is the windows equivalent of "format" or "system restore."


    4) What is my firmware (psp's software)?

    To find out, from the main screen of the psp go to "settings"->"system settings"->"system information" and check system software.The terms "OFW" and "CFW" mean official firmware(sony's software) and custom firmware (hacked software).


    5) Has my PSP been hacked?

    Detailed analysis of the hacking process will be explained later on.


    IV. PSP DESCRIPTIONS/IS IT HACKABLE?

    Spoiler:


    1) PSP 1000:

    Spoiler:

    NOTE: PSP 1000 is fully hackable

    Every psp 1000 with OFW below or equal to 6.36 can be hacked with or without a pandora and mms.
    Every psp 1000 with OFW above 6.36 can only be hacked with a pandora and mms
    Every psp 1000 with cfw is already hacked and can be upgraded to the latest cfw

    2) PSP 2000:

    Spoiler:

    NOTE: PSP 2000 is the most complex case.

    Here you must know what motherboard it has before anything else.. Read this guide first.


    There is also another way if you have a psp below 5.03 using PSPIDENT. Please note that PSP Ident can also run on 6.20 TN or 6.35 PRO as well. Please refer
    to later sections on information on how to install them.


    Tutorial for PSP IDENT



    1)Update to 5.03 OFW.

    The tutorial

    and the file

    http://psphackguides.com/downloads/f...cial-firmware/

    2)Run chickHen+PSPIDENT

    Download the files

    Chickhen

    psp ident

    and follow this tutorial


    NOTE:ChickHen may take several tries to work, each time scroll to a different icon after you run it
    but don't press anything else.


    After you know the motherboad:
    Spoiler:

    2)a) If it is NOT a TA088v3 then it is fully hackable.
    For psp 2000 with OFW below or equal to 6.36 can be hacked with or without a pandora and mms.
    For psp 2000 with OFW above 6.36 can only be hacked with a pandora and mms.
    For psp 2000 with CFW is already hacked and can be upgraded to the latest CFW.

    2)b) If it IS a TA088v3 then it is semi-hackable.
    For psp 2000 with OFW below or equal to 6.36, it can only be hacked without a pandora.
    For psp 2000 with OFW above 6.36 it can not be hacked at the moment. [WARNING]It is unhackable.[/WARNING]
    There is only one basic CFW at the moment and an addon for it in that category!


    3) PSP 3000:

    Spoiler:

    Every psp 3000 with OFW below or equal to 6.36 can be hacked only without a pandora
    Every psp 3000 with OFW above 6.36 can not be hacked.It is unhackable.
    There is only one basic cfw at the moment and an addon for it in that category!

    VII. Tutorial for updating a 1000/2000 to the latest CFW for already hacked PSP's



    This section is for any PSP 1000 and psp 2000 WITHOUT a TA088v3 motherboard, that have cfw on them.
    If you are unsure of what motherboard your psp has check out the "PSP DESCRIPTIONS/IS IT HACKABLE?" part of the tutorial

    Spoiler:


    Important information!


    Here you have two choices of cfw : 5.00 m33-6 with 6_30 plugin+prometheus addon and 5.50 gen d3 with the
    prometheus addon.You can only choose one, but it is possible to change that later if for some reason you regret the decision. To help you decide,
    click here.


    Choose one CFW and follow the corresponding part of the tutorial:

    Spoiler:

    A)Tutorial for 5.50 gen d3


    Spoiler:

    Use hellcat's recovery flasher to install 5.50 gen d3

    Hellcat's recovery flasher:
    http://psphackguides.com/downloads/h...flasher-v1-60/

    And follow this tutorial
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h4j-...eature=channel

    Here are the files you need:
    550.pbp
    5.50 gen

    b)Install the prometheus addon

    [indent]B)Tutorial for 5.00 m33-6.[indent]
    Spoiler:

    Use hellcat's recovery flasher to install 5.00 m33-6

    Tutorial for hellcat's
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h4j-...eature=channel

    Note that installs 5.50 gen d3.The process is similar for 5.00 m33-6.Look below for specific instructions!

    Here are the files you will need:

    500.pbp(rename the eboot.pbp in there)

    5.00 m33-6 installer(you only need the "update" folder from that)

    Hellcat's recovery flasher
    (place the entire "recovery" folder of the pile in psp->game of your memory stick)

    Just swap 550.pbp with 500.pbp and
    the 5.50 gen D3 installer with the 5.00 m33-6 installer.


    Differences between the video tutorial and the 5.00 m33-6 installation

    Put the 500.pbp and 5.00 m33-6 "update" folder(download links above) in the root of your memory stick.
    Then select "target fw 5.00" after you run hellcat's and press "Install cfw (of version selected above)".
    On the next screen just press "reset (format) all settings as well".


    NOTE: instead of selecting Target FW: load from external fw pack as the video suggests, choose the 5.00 option!

    after you have finished with hellcat's,to properly set up this firmware follow this guide.

    [indent]C)Alternative tutorial for old m33 cfw's(3.52 m33-3 and above).[indent]


    Thanks to: theEvilOne,Neon Knight,Demonchild,Kamenrider,Shadowrath,Oyabun

    Spoiler:

    This part is for psp with cfw 3.52 m33-3 and above.
    Instead of following the previous tutorial you can also follow this.Choose whatever seems
    easier to you.

    Step 1: Download 500.pbp
    Extract it somewhere on your pc and rename that file(eboot.pbp) to 500.pbp

    Step 2: Download 5.00 m33-6 updater
    Extract the "update" folder contained there at the same place you have put the 500.pbp

    Step 3: Connect the psp with the pc.Copy 500.pbp to the root of the memory stick
    (not inside a folder) and the "update" folder to the folder psp->game of the memory stick.
    Disconnect the psp from the pc.

    Step 4: Run the 5.00 m33-6 updater.See picture below.
    Spoiler:




    Now if you have decided to go with 5.00 m33-6 follow this guide
    to set up your firmware correctly.If you want 5.50 gen d3 follow the last steps.

    Step 5: Download the xgen updater
    and watch this tutorial

    Step 6: Download 5.50 prometheus and
    watch this tutorial
    Note: do not forget to press "select" on the psp and change UMD ISO MODE to "m33"





    VIII. Hacking a PSP 2000(only with the TA088V3 motherboard!), PSP 3000, PSP GO



    THis tutorial is divided into sections depending on the firmware the PSP is already running. Also, for PSP 3000/GO there are some additional notes
    because not all PSP 3000 can be safely downgraded.

    Please keep in mind that all CFW in this section are temporary, meaning that every time you turn off
    the PSP(not sleep mode) the hack is gone and you have to repeat the process on the PSP itself!

    Spoiler:

    Important info: There are currently 3 main CFW to choose from. 5.03 prometheus, 6.20 TN and 6.35 PRO

    The best, whenever possible is 5.03 because it has the best plugin compatibility instant iso loading and PS1 support so I definitely recommend that.

    The other 2 can not be compared that easily. 6.20 TN doesn't support "immediate" iso loading(like all the rest CFW) as it needs a program to load the iso's.

    It has however, better plugin support, network access and does not cause problems with UMD's or PSN content as 6.35 does.

    In many cases you don't really have a choice though as the PSP cannot be downgraded anyway. EVERYTHING is explained below.

    Part 1: up to OFW 5.03


    Spoiler:

    Important: this is not a permanent hack.If you switch off the psp you will have to run chickhen
    run gen c and then the prometheus again!


    A) Update to 5.03 OFW
    Tutorial:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvLkY...eature=channel
    Download 5.03 OFW here

    B) Install 5.03 prometheus.

    This is real simple: Download this version of chickHen, copy it to the memory stick in the folder PSP/GAME and run it!


    C)Change UMD ISO MODE

    On xmb(main screen of the psp), press select to bring up the vsh menu and change UMD ISO MODE to m33 or sony NP9660


    Part 2: up to OFW 6.20



    Spoiler:

    Here for PSP 3000/GO users there are a couple of things they need to know:

    A 3g PSP 3000 can be downgraded to 5.03 and use the Part 1 of the IX section.

    If the PSP 3000 is a 4g or a PSP GO(5g), THEY CANNOT downgrade below 6.20.
    All the rest models that are not mentioned aboove should NOT be downgraded at all!

    To find out the version of the PSP read this

    Last, follow this tutorial for installing the 6.20 TN-C or downgrading.

    Some good video tutorials about this are the following:

    How to install 6.20 TN

    How to downgrade to 5.03 from 6.20 TN

    Or if you choose to keep 6.20 TN,

    How to run iso games(made for TN-A but it works the same for TN-C)


    Part 3: up to OFW 6.36


    Spoiler:

    The same advice I gave at part 2 applies here as well.

    Read this tutorial.
    Some very useful video tutorials are:

    How to install 6.35 PRO-A2

    How to downgrade your PSP from 6.35 to 6.20



    IX. Hacking your PSP with a Pandora and MMS


    This section is for a psp 1000 with and for psp 2000(without a TA088v3 motherboard)
    regardless of firmware!If you don't know what type of motherboard your psp 2000 has
    check the "PSP DESCRIPTIONS/IS IT HACKABLE?" part of the tutorial.

    A)Making the pandora and MMS


    Before you can hack your PSP, you must obtain a pandora and a mms. So look below.

    Spoiler:

    1)Making the MMS(Magic Memory Stick)


    2)Making a pandora


    Spoiler:

    PSP 1000 and PSP 2000(with a TA085V1) are the ONLY ones that can create a pandora battery.
    They also must already have cfw or at least be homebrew enabled with kernel access.

    Before explaining anything i do recommend that you buy the pandora as you may brick
    your psp at any time and having an extra pandora will come in handy!
    Here you can buy it for $5.18

    [QUOTE=dimos_bill;1367085]

    this is just a suggestion as it makes things a bit cleaner and less scrolling.
    you may also want to add an advanced Users guide. etc etc.

    i placed my ideas in a spoiler to make less space btw.
    Spoiler:

    What PSP model do I have?
    Spoiler:
    Just check the sticker at the bottom right of the psp. At the end of your device there is a series of numbers; you will find one of the following:

    PSP-100X This is the first PSP model the Phat (psp 1000).
    PSP-200X This is the second model the PSP Slim (psp 2000).
    PSP-300X This is the third and most recent model also known as the PSP Brite (psp 3000).

    NOTE: The X represents the final of the 4 numbers that states the region of the psp that is not
    important to the hacking process.

    Regions of psp's
    PSP-1000-Japan
    PSP-1001-US/North America
    PSP-1002-Austrila/New Zealand
    PSP-1003-UK
    PSP-1004-Europe
    PSP-1005-Korea
    PSP-1006-Hong Kong/Singapore
    PSP-1007-Taiwan
    PSP-1008-Russia
    PSP-1009-China


    PSP DESCRIPTIONS/IS My PSP HACKABLE ?
    Spoiler:

    PSP 1000
    Completely hackable no precautions to worry about.

    PSP 2000
    Fully hackable but there are some precautions:
    Must have come with bellow 4.01 Official firmware (Unless Limited edition)
    if above 4.01 it has a risk of being an unhackable Mother board (TA 088 v3)

    PSP 3000
    Temporary hackable aslong as it came with 5.03 Official firmware.

    What is fully hackable, semi-hackable and unhackable psp?

    Spoiler:
    Fully hackable - A psp that can be hacked permanently.After the process you will not have to do it again.
    Semi-hackable - A psp that can be hacked, but every time you shut down the device(not sleep mode) you will have to hack it again.

    Unhackable - A psp that can only run some homebrew and NO backed up iso/cso games from the memory stick.

    What is my firmware (psp's software)? How do i find it?

    Spoiler:
    To find out, from the main screen of the psp go to "settings"->"system settings"->"system information" and check system software.The terms "OFW" and "CFW" mean official firmware(sony's software) and custom firmware (hacked software).
