    Ok guys, I realise some of you are coming here to hack/put c/fw on your Psp.

    Ok, here are some terms i'll be using.
    MMS - Magic memory stick, part of the pandora pack that is used to hack a psp.
    PANDORA BATTERY - A battery that launches the psp to service mode to enable c/fw, you can buy one online, or make one using this Guide.
    C/fw - Custom Firmware. Basically what your looking at this for.
    ChickHEN - Half hacking your psp as it were. Enables most homebrew [the homebrew bit is what HEN means].
    Anything else you don't understand, put a post and i will reply.

    These are the basic things you need to know.

    All Psp 1000's/1k/Phat/1st model can be hacked.

    All Psp 2000's WITHOUT THE TA-088 v.3 MOTHERBAORD can be hacked.

    All Psp 3000's Can only Run ChickHEN, Or a "half hack" if they are under 5.03 firmware. Nothing else can be modded on it.

    You might be thinking, how do i know if my psp is hackable? Well, if its a 3000 then it can't be hacked, but to check if it the 2k can be hacked click Here.



    Now, all Hackables can be hacked in 2 ways.

    1. Using a pandora battery and magic memory stick.
    Now, to make a pandora, click Here.
    To make a magic memory stick click Here.
    To install the C/fw, click Here. [the same guide as the panora maker, but it has the info.] NOTE: ONLY FOR HACKABLES, AND FOR SLIMS YOU MAY NEED TO HOLD THE BATTERY IN.
    2. Using ChickHEN - Only for Psp's on or under 5.03.
    Quite easy, one guide. Here.



    Now, un-hackables can run ChickHEN if its under or on 5.03 - homebrew enabler. It can't do all the things c/fw can, and if you swtich off your psp fully you will lose the ChickHEN, Unless you use sedna.
    Need the guide? Click Here.


    And thats it folks, The basics. Any help needed, Just post and you'll get the help. Enjoy.

    Note - If you end up bricking your psp,or something bad like that, which you shouldn't, ask for help and me or another member will help.

    If this is going to be the BEGINNER section, then include a complete dictionary reference to what each one of those terms mean. I mean seriously, how many beginners come here knowing what CFW, Pandora,and/or what a MMS is? Hell, some people don't even know the PSP uses MSPD... Too many broad topics.

    I'm clicking on the button, and then the page seems to refresh. Still nothing is happening for me. I even registered to the site to see if that worked and still nothing.
