    Default Install 5.00 M33-6 or 5.50 GEN D3 WITHOUT pandora

    THIS WILL NOT WORK AND WILL POTENTIALLY BRICK YOUR PSP GO, PSP3000 OR PSP2000 WITH TA088V3 MOTHEBOARD. (IF YOU'RE UNSURE ABOUT YOUR MOTHERBOARD THEN USE PSPIDENT - SEE BELOW). YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

    If this guide has helped you, please add rep

    Main

    Hellcat updated his Recovery Flasher to 1.65 which now supports 6.x HEN. What does this mean? Well this basically means you can now install CFW without pandora even if your firmware has gone past 5.03!!!! If your PSP's firmware is <= 6.35 and is of the correct PSP type then you can install CFW to your PSP without pandora.

    In addition, the beauty of the this addition is that we can now kiss goodbye to 5.03 HEN. 5.03 HEN was OK to trigger for SLIMS but was a friggin nightmare to trigger on a phat. Now that 6.x HEN are signed, you just run it from the GAME menu. No more scrolling through photos and relying on luck for the screen to flash green and reboot or mod chickhen.* Goodbye 5.03 HEN!

    This procedure will work for:

    - ALL PSP 1000s
    - PSP 2000 with TA085 or TA088 V1 or V2 motherboard

    FAQ

    Q. I have a PSP2000 but I dont know what motherboard is in it?
    A. Follow this procedure (video tutorial to follow)
    Spoiler for How to identify your motherboard:

    Your PSP needs to be homebrew enabled
    1. Download PSPident and extract
    2. Copy the extracted folder to PSP/GAME on your PSP
    3. From the PSP's main menu, navigate to GAME and run PSPident
    4. Look for the motherboard model

    Q. How to I update my PSP to 6.35?
    A. Follow this procedure
    Spoiler for How to manually update your firmware to 6.35:


    Q. When I launch 6.35 HEN, screen goes blank and the PSP switches off
    A. Disable UMD Cache in System Settings

    Q. I get a whole load of updater.prx errors and recovery flasher takes me back to the main menu saying no harm done?
    A. Backup and format your memory stick

    Q. You tutorial shows you how to install 5.00 m33-6 or 5.50 gen d3.* So which one should I install?
    A. See comparison thread

    Q. But I'm already running 6.20 TN-A/B/C or 6.31 HEN. Do I really need manually update to 6.35 and install 6.35 HEN to do this?
    A. No, this procedure will work on any 6.x HEN. So after you have copied the files onto your PSP, you can jump straight to 02:38 in the video.
