    How do you play downloaded games on the PSP 3000? I need to know soon, because I'm wondering if I should buy a 3000, or a PSPgo. Is it only a matter of time before you can play downloaded UMDs on the PSPgo?

    Thanks
    -ChrisMims


    EDIT 1: Do you put the CSO on the PSP 3000 to play it? Is that just the data from the UMDs?
    EDIT 2: I didn't mean to post this twice!

    PSPgo has not yet been fully hacked, and neither has the 3000. If you can, get an early 2000 model or a 1000.

    1000 is the launch and has a smaller screen, less RAM but it can be hacked easily. The 2000 series is a little more hazy; there are the early ones, like I've got, that are fully hackable in every way- you can even create Pandora batteries from within the firmware. But the later versions, that have a different motherboard, cannot be properly hacked and same goes for the 3000 series. The PSPgo cannot be hacked at all yet.

    On a psp 3000 to run custom firmware. your firmware got to be 5.03 sony firmware.

    Then you can run chickHen R2 the either gen a or 3.60 enabler.
    I hope that answers your question.

    Well, I just remembered....

    If you get a PSP on 5.03 or lower, then you may be able to chickHEN and one of the GEN firmwares- I think it's 5.0GEN-A. However, you won't be able to play any of the newer games or anything.

    That doesn't work on PSP 3000. Neither does it work on later revisions of the PSP 2000 series.

    You can play the newer games when you use the game-decrypter-by-yoshihiro-v4 then use the umdgen4 to build the eboot.bin.

    Yes GEN A and 5.00m33-6.

    Aye, does that work for the firmware? If so, that's even better for the man (or woman)!

    You're just asking for people to flame you for encouraging piracy aren't you...

    Posts merged

    Just so I don't make another topic, can the PSP that comes with the PSP Rockband Bundle be hacked with chickHen? And can I downgrade the firmware if I'm on a firmware higher than 5.03? I know you can downgrade firmware on the iPhone and iPT, but not so sure about PSP.

    No one is going to flame him. We all encourage piracy, just not directly.

    As for the psp in the rockband bundle, it is a psp-3000 and it can be hacked with chickhen but I don't know if the newest bundles have fw higher than 5.03. You can't downgrade official firmware on the psp-3000.

    Slim models TA-088v3 models can not be hacked. PSP 2000 with lower than v3 can be hacked.
    Usually, the PSP bundles keep a lower firmware/hardware which is why people reccomend people who want a 2000 to get a bundle so that they don't get a v3 mobo.

    For the PSP 3000:
    I'm not quite sure about the PSP Rockband bundle but I'm pretty sure you'd be safe with the Ratchet and Clank bundle because that's what I got.

    Is there any difference in the size of the slim, or is it just a name? Also is the one with the better backlight only the 3000?

    Oh okay then. I hope they have it then. Maybe I'll just buy the Phat one of my friend instead. PSP Phat that's already prehacked.
