    Hey how's it going, name is Chris and I've had my psp since it just about came out...Got the big boy, a psp1001. I literally got it as an 8th grade graduation present (19 yrs old now) played it a ton for about 6 months and ran out of good games to play...been out of the psp loop since then til about a couple weeks ago where i started looking for new good titles to get as i've been needing a handheld. I finally just decided I'd be best off probably figuring out how to just mod it...it's currently running system software 2.0 lol. Anyways, hello everyone hopefully learn a bit here.

    Well the easiest way to install CFW would be to upgrade to OFW5.03. When there you can install ChickHEN which will allow Hellcats Recovery Flasher to run which will install 5.00m33-6. From there you can upgrade to 5.50GEN-D3 which is the latest CFW!

    No, No, and No. Pandora + MMS is so easy your brain will ooze out of your ears. All you have to do is get a pandora battery and make a MMS with this and you are playing homebrew within 25 minutes tops.

    EDIT: Xgen isn't the way to go either. It has been leaving people with black screens. Use Hellcats, and its all downhill from there.

    i understand the desire to get it hacked asap, but i have to agree with bigboss on this. regardless if you get HEN to work, order a pandora anyway for furture issues or just to have. for $6, it is worth it.

    well if you can insert a memory stick, hold a trigger down, and insert a battery.....you have the pandora/mms procedure down pat. it's all good bro, once you have done it with a pandora you will kick yourself for messing with HEN.

    Yeah after looking over it just for a few minutes I'm already wanting to kick myself until i can order one lol. chickhen is a damned pain in the ass...over an hour of restarting now. 40 bucks for the pandora+4g mms isnt bad anyhow...and if i turn out to be real lazy i can find a stick around here and use the mms creator linked above...all in good time i suppose, haven't played the thing in nearly 4 years anyhow...not in any rush still.

    $40 is way to high. you can get the pandora from dealextreme.com for $6 and a memory stick from any reputable retail store for $20 or so. don't buy it from here, people say that they ship fake memory sticks. are you in the states? if so check out walmart online, the have a 8G for $20
