    There's already another ChickHen for hackables guide, but this one will expand a bit more. Showing how to install ChickHen -> Hellcat's -> 5.50 Gen-D3. *Also adding MHUSpeed V3 (ChickHen alternative for 2ks)*

    **Remove any pictures from the Picture folder before starting.**

    Unsure if you have a hackable 2k? Follow the guide up until Pspident. If Pspident shows Motherboard: TA-088V3, then continue to this guide: Guide: ChickHen + Cfw for 3ks/Unhackable 2ks skipping down to CFW.

    Key:
    → X: Your drive letter for this guide, when you connect the psp to pc via Usb cord, or through MS pro duo adapter.
    → Root: The base of your MS; what you see when you first double click your drive letter (Where the Psp folder is located).
    → MS: Memory Stick
    → XMB: Psps home menu
    → FW: Firmware

    Updating to 5.03:

    1. Download: PSP Downloads | 5.03 Firmware Update
    2. Create a folder named "UPDATE" in your game folder: X:\PSP\GAME\UPDATE\
    3. Extract the Eboot.PBP to the Update folder.
    4. Run the 5.03 Updater from your MS. *It is recommended that you have your AC adapter plugged in as well while Updating fw. If the psp were to turn off mid Update, it would result in a bricked psp. Restorable only by Pandora + MMS*

    Installing ChickHen for 1ks:

    1. Download: PSP Downloads | ChickHEN Homebrew Enabler R2
    2: Extract h.bin to the root of your MS & the contents of "PHAT" to X:\PICTURE\
    3: In the XMB go to System Config→Restore Default Settings. Run, leaving the Psps nickname as its default.
    4: Got to System Config→Umd Autostart and switch it to [off]
    5: Go to Pictures.
    6: Click on the Eggsploit.*If the psps screen glitches and the wifi light starts blinking then it's a success. If the psp freezes, either give it 10 seconds to turn off on its own, or take the battery out and try again.* **ChickHen is not a 100%, it could take awhile.** ***Remove any UMD from the Umd drive if you're having difficulty getting ChickHen to boot up.***


    Installing ChickHen for 2ks *Recommended for smaller MS's*:

    1: Download: PSP Downloads | ChickHEN Homebrew Enabler R2
    2: Extract h.bin to the root of your MS & the contents of "SLIM"/"ChickHEN" to X:\PICTURE\
    3: In the XMB go to System Config→Restore Default Settings. Run, leaving the Psps nickname as its default.
    4: Go to System Config→UMD Autostart & UMD Cache, switch both to [off]
    5: Go to Pictures
    6: Scroll down to the bottom image. *If the psps screen glitches and then restarts then it's a success. If the psp freezes, either give it 10 seconds to turn off on its own, or take the battery out and try again.* **ChickHen is not a 100%, may need to try a few times**

    Installing MHUSpeed V3 (ChickHen Alternative) for 2ks*Recommended for larger MS's*:

    1: Download: PSP Downloads | MHUSPEED v3: PSP Homebrew Enabler
    2: Extract speed.bin to the root of your MS, and the contents of "PICTURE" to X:\PICTURE\
    3: In the XMB go to System Config→Restore Default Settings. Run, leaving the Psps nickname as its default.
    4: Go to System Config→UMD Autostart & UMD Cache, switch both to [off]
    5: Enter Pictures
    6: Allow the images to load, then click on the folder and scroll to the bottom. *If the psps screen glitches and then restarts then it's a success. If the psp freezes, either give it 10 seconds to turn off on its own, or take the battery out and try again.* **MHUSpeedV3 is not a 100%, may need to try a few times**

    Pspident: For those unsure if their 2k is hackable
    :

    1: Download: PSP Downloads | PSPident 0.4
    2: Extract "PSPident" to X:\PSP\GAME\
    3: Run.
    4: If your motherboard is TA-088V3 move to this guide: Guide: ChickHen + Cfw for 3ks/Unhackable 2ks

    Installing CFW:
    Step 1:
    Installing 5.00m33-6 (Hellcat's Recovery Flasher V1.60):

    1: Download: PSP Downloads | Recovery Flasher v1.60

    5: Run Hellcat's, make sure the Target firmware is set to 5.00, then go down one and select Install CFW. Followed by "reset (format) settings as well" *It is recommended that you have your AC adapter plugged in as well while flashing fw. If the psp were to turn off mid flash, it would result in a bricked psp. Restorable only by Pandora + MMS*

    Step 2:
    Installing 5.50 Gen-D3 (Latest cfw):

    1: Download: PSP Downloads | Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-D3
    2: Remove any UPDATE folder from X:\PSP\GAME\

    4: Run the installer. *It is recommended that you have your AC adapter plugged in as well while flashing fw. If the psp were to turn off mid flash, it would result in a bricked psp. Restorable by Recovery modes Recovery Folder (Accessed by holding down the Right trigger when turning the psp on) or Pandora + MMS*

    Step 3:

    Once you're on cfw, you can delete everything you used to get there.

    If you're on 6.20 firmware like your profile states, then no. This is only for 5.03 or lower.

    Ok, I'm a total n00b at this, I got the chickhen enviroment installed finally on my phat, but I'm confused as to what I'm supposed to do next, I extracted the recovery folder to psp/game/ then I renamed the eboot to 500, where am I supposed to put the eboot.pbp file from the 5.0 firmware update download?

    you need to have a renamed FW update from eboot.pbp to 500.pbp (for the original 5.00 FW) in the recovery folder.
    It should look like this ms0:/PSP/GAME/RECOVERY/EBOOT.PBP+500.PBP
    First PSP2k : OFW 5.03 --> CFW 3.72M33-1 --> CFW 5.00m33-4 --> 5.00m33-6 --> 5.02 GEN-A -->5.50 GEN-A --> broken screen --> sold
    Second PSP2k : OFW 4.01 --> 5.03 --> ChickHEN R2 --> CFWEnabler 3.60 --> 5.03MHU
