    ChickHEN only works if the original firmware on your PSP is v5.03.

    I know that. Already have v 5.03 added to it and an original psp model which is highly compatible with emu.

    If your PSP really is on firmware v5.03, it should have worked. Chances are your PSP is not actually on v5.03

    If you have a PSP-1000, the alternative is to purchase a Pandora battery and hack your PSP that way.

    Chances are also that you haven't installed it correctly. Try to run ChickHen like 30 times thats what I did on my friends PSP 1000.

    Are you having problems hacking your PSP or getting ChickHEN to run?

    Apparently, some PSPs respond to ChickHEN better than others. My friend can get his up and running after three tries or so while it takes me two hours to get it going.
    If you have problems getting it running, you can try turning off the WLAN switch and going to system settings and turning off UMD Auto run, UMD cache and USB charging. That usually increases the chances of ChickHEN installing properly.
    If that doesn't work a few times, restore system settings, turn off the things I mentioned and try again.

    over
    and
    over
    and
    over.

    I tried using THIS version of ckickHEN and it works a lot better than my older version. what I do is the UMD options that Chaos said above then I wait on the ChickHEN folder till I see the Options box appear then I hold down and enter the folder, But like Chaos said PSP act differently then others ,so the best of luck.

    I used the same method to install CFW to my PSP 2002. I think i ended up replacing the ChickHEN pictures with another set though. Just keep on trying and don't power off once it work's.
