    As title says: 5.03 GEN-B has been released.
    Before installing please read everything written here and all links given and make sure you understand how to use this.
    This update makes it possible to play games that require 5.55+ and are protected on PSP`s using the 5.03 ChickHEN.

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=2SC6NMJS

    (File name: cfw-5-03gen-b-psp-3000_1257125664.zip)

    Installing notes:

    * Download the file of Custom Firmware 5.03GEN-B for HEN (PSP-3000)
    * Unpack cfw-5-03gen-b-psp-3000_1257125664.zip
    * Connect your PSP to the computer via USB
    * Copy the folder: 5.03GEN-B and all files inside it to MS0\PSP\GAME\
    * So your path looks like: MS0\PSP\GAME\5.03GEN-B\
    * Disconnect your PSP from your PC.

    After doing so:

    First DISABLE all your plugins.

    5.03 GEN-B update can be launched from XMB under GEN-A or ChickHEN R2.
    X - start the patch
    R - Exit the program flashing nothing at all.
    O - Restore the official 5.03 version.txt

    After you press X to install it shows it is busy when done it asks you to press X to reboot the PSP into 5.03 GEN-B.

    Special note: If you would like to reinstall 5.03 GEN-B or want to reflash your official 5.03 version.txt you should hold down the L trigger while starting the: Quick Updater 5.03 GEN-B from your XMB.
    This will allow you to enter its install menu again.
    (As normally once installing the files needed it will not promt it again when launching the Quick Updater to activate GEN-B)

    Another special note: There is a 5.50 GEN-B out. THIS VERSION DOES NOT WORK ON UNHACKABLE PSP 300x and 200x!
    If the link is down please make sure you get the: 5.03 GEN-B if you have a unhackakble PSP.


    And yet another special note: I do not know or it is required to install 5.03 GEN-A before installing 5.03 GEN-B.
    I did so as I had 5.03 GEN-A on it before I installed this one perhaps you should do the same just to be safe.

    I just tried to install it, but one of two situations happen:

    1- If I use it without unninstalling MHU, it will boot into MHU
    2- If I use it after unninstalling MHU, it will boot into a black screen, and them the PSP turns off.

    Is there a way to boot a GEN firmware after using a MHU firmware?

    Sorry can not help you with that.
    Do not want to give you bad advise as I never used the MHU firmwares.

    MHU is the former Custom firmware enabler. You know, the one by Xenogears?

    Also as I read your post I see you did not install GEN-A.
    As I wrote all down the post Iam not sure or updating to 5.03 GEN-B requires 5.03 GEN-A to be installed.
    However to be safe I suggested to do so.

    Perhaps try it that way. [​IMG]

    Again please make sure you get the 5.03 GEN A\B versions and NOT the 5.50 ones.

    The same happens when I try to install GEN-A. And, reading some posts on the pspgen forums, you can go directly from chickhen to GEN-B.

    Yeh indeed that is also what Yoshihiro confirmed to me on my topic there.
    Something weird must been going on over there as it wont install. [​IMG]

    If you find a fix feel free to post it would be nice if anyone else runs into it.

    Actually, I think that this was a known issue back when GEN-A came out. There was even a tutorial on it on the DaX Forums.

    Then you are lucky I always download every usefull thing out there.

    I have this zip file containing 3 files.
    Should I upload them for you?

    The discription says this:

    This files were made for people who are unable to launch GEN A (Black screen after flashing)

    - Extract the zip file and put the 3 files to ms0:/FILES

    - Run gen-a's installer/loader again...

    On my harddrive got them indeed from DAX if I remember correctly.
    The TXT with it was pasted from the topic.

    I always download things like this. [​IMG]
    Got some kinda CFW(E) collection lol.

    http://rapidshare.com/files/301381845/04_F...A_5.03.rar.html

    Hope this helps! If after this you still fail to get the thing working Ill upload my GEN-A + B + other files for you.

    Offtopic: Yay 300+ posts [​IMG]

    Thanks. I'm going to try it now.

    BTW, you know, trying stuff until something works is not the worst part. The worst part is the ChickHen. Sometimes I get it working at the 1st try, and sometimes, it takes lots of tries.

    EDIT: Still can't install GEN-A using the fix files.

    Yes same happens to my 300x.
    After installing 5.03 GEN-B I wanted to see if HEN still booted.
    Took me only 2 try`s to get HEN activated.

    While a day or 2 ago I had to try upto 15 times to finaly get it into HEN.

    Normally I get it to work within 4 a 5 try`s tho.
    If Iam real lucky at first try or 2nd but Iam not that lucky so often. [​IMG]

    That's nothing. The first time I got ChickHen to work, it was after 1 hour and a half worth of tries.

    Oh, and the fix did not work. It sill gives me a black screen.

    This is the pack I have always used I only let out the official 5.03 update:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/301398789/01_-...__200x.rar.html

    Are you perhaps using a modded version of the h.bin? Or R1?

    If you are not sure perhaps use my h.bin also.
    Its 100% the un-edited R2 h.bin for sure.

    Apart from that try replacing any other files that you use by mine.

    Hope this works, if not Iam totaly out of idea`s let me know if it worked out.

    Also could you try another memstick?

    I google you problem and come along this page:
    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/f127/cfwen...m-on-a-t248730/

    A guy named razavi claims he could boot ChickHEN but not GEN.
    He claims his memstick was the problem.
