    ChickHEN is notoriously difficult to get going on a PHAT but try this...

    *Ensure that your PSP is running 5.03OFW - Settings>System Settings>Sytem Information>System Software – (should be) 5.03 – If so move to ChickHEN

    IF NOT

    *Your battery should be at least 75% charged (I plug in the AC charger too)
    *Extract the “PSP_Firmware_503.RAR” on your PC and contained should be a file named "Eboot.pbp".
    *Format your MS via your PSP Settings>System Settings> Format Memory Stick.
    *Connect the USB to the PSP and then Create a New Folder named UPDATE in the GAME folder in the PSP folder on the root of the MS - it should look like this MS0:\PSP\GAME\UPDATE
    *Place the Eboot.pbp in the UPDATE folder
    *Close the USB Connection
    *Run the update using your PSP and after it’s completed it will reboot
    *That should upgrade your PSP to Official Firmware 5.03

    ChickHEN (Use the original ChickHEN R2)

    *Reset the PSP to factory defaults
    *Turn off UMD AutoStart and Cache (Where applicable)
    *Set Themes/Background etc to ORIGINAL
    *Set UMD charge and AUTO CONNECT to OFF (Varies from Phats to Brites)
    *Some say that on the PHATS the screen brightness should be on the lowest setting
    *Some also say set the Language to ENGLISH and the Character Set to US(437) This is for Japanese PSP’s

    *Backup your MS – Specifically Game Saves
    *Format MS (many claim that the smaller (512m / 1g / 2g) original cards work best)
    *Rename the MPROOT folder to ‘MSROOT’
    *Extract “ChickHENR2.RAR” Open the Slim/Phat (depending on your model) folder and copy the ChickHEN folder contained to the MS0:\PSP\PHOTO folder
    *Place a copy of the “h.bin” file extracted earlier on the ROOT of the MS as well as in the MSROOT folder (changed earlier)
    *ENSURE THAT THERE ARE NO OTHET PICS OR PHOTOS ON THE MS
    *IF YOU ENCOUNTER PROBLEMS (Doesn’t work after the 10th try etc)
    *Some say copy 3 more versions of the pictures of the Eggs into the ChickHEN folder and rename “e”,”f” and “g”
    *Some say scroll down to the last image while they load but don’t click X on it (never works for me on either the 2k or 3k)


    NOW

    *Fully switch off the PSP (not sleep – hold up the power button for +-7 sec)
    *Restart and immediately scroll to PHOTO in the XMB and select MS\ChickHEN – When the thumbnail loads – press X – Nothing else!
    *Funky ‘Green’ screen ensues and Auto-Restart
    IF
    *The screen freezes and it Auto-Shuts down but not Restart – Unsuccessful so return to step “Scroll to PHOTO\MS\ChickHEN – etc”
    *To check the ChickHEN’s establishment on the PSP look in Settings>System Settings>Sytem Information>System Software – (should be) 5.03 ChickHenR2
    and if so move ahead to running Hellcats

    IF NOT

    *Fully switch off the PSP (not sleep – hold up the power button for +-7 sec)
    *Restart and immediately scroll to PHOTO in the XMB and select MS\ChickHEN – When the thumbnail loads – press X – Nothing else!
    *Funky ‘Green’ screen ensues and Auto-Restart

    IF NOT

    *Go back to the start of the ChickHEN section of this tutorial and start again (some say booting the PSP while Holding the ‘R’ trigger and continuing to hold it while installing ChickHEN increases the success rate – Unconfirmed)

    No problems glad to have helped - have you got 5.00m33-6 installed? have you upgraded to the 5.50GEN-D3 CFW yet?

    Don't get the N64 emulator. The frame rate is horrible, it ain't worth it. The updates are making it better, but to my knowledge its still not working fully yet.

    ok then NEW PROBLEM i think i have bricked my PSP. i was trying to change the theme on the PSP so i followed these instructions
    1: Turn off PSP (hold off buffon for 5-10 sec)
    2: Turn back on while holding the R button
    3: You have now entered the Recovery menu, go to advanced > Toggle USB (flash0)
    4: NOW VERY IMPORTANT MAKE A COMPLETE BACKUP OF FLASH 0!!
    5: Save the backup of the FLASH 0 somewhere on your computer (DONT DELETE IT)
    6: NOw swap the files found in the Theme folders with files existing in VSH\Resources and Font
    7: Press Back on the PSP menu
    8: Press Exit on the PSP menu
    9: If your PSP boots with a error, first try to go to theme menu: change to another color (if this dont work: return to step1). if it dont boot at all. Return to Step 1 and do over again with the backup of Flash 0..


    this worked fine

    but then the them didnt work some i tried to put the orignal file bad but the jpn0.pgf would go back on 8( so i decided maybe it would be alright without it. know im getting a blue screen saying "Setting information is corrupted. Press O to repair etc" i keep pressing O and it just loops round and round

    HELP!!

    PS it WONT let me enter recovery menu

    Pandora + MMS is the only way to fix this. Also custom themes like this ONLY work on M33.

    Care to explain?

    He probably did it wrong, but anything dealing with FLASH0 is pretty dangerous.

    Yeah. It may or may not work, but there should be like a 3 digit number on the back of you battery case. Google image that and there should be a pandora guide for it (Sony batteries only). You will eventually will have to replace it, it will do just fine for the moment.
