    Ive seen a lot of hacks of the new PSP 2000 and 3000 but this one got my attention.

    I know the CFW Enabler is just temporary but is this a permanent one?

    http://www.psp-hacks.com/2009/06/06/custom...r-the-psp-3000/

    Im going to buy a PSP soon so I will not be bother by the sudden sleep of my current semi-destroyed PSP 2001.

    If this isnt permanent, im forced to buy a second hand PSP 2000 with M33 installed (permanently/old model PSP 2000)


    I'll be back with some update. I'll read the README that came with the GEN installer. I'll be back and might ask this to be deleted. no flame please as Im going to update this post.

    EDIT:

    if i do this right, it's a permanent just like an old model PSP 2000

    Wrong. 5.03 GEN-A is a custom firmware for the PSP 3000, yes, but you need to boot into ChickHEN and then boot into the firmware after flashing the files once. However, if you shut it off, it goes back to OFW 5.03. You need to keep your PSP in standby if you're not using it, as shutting it down clears the RAM where GEN-A stores its files. It can't store all files in the flash0, because if it did it would brick your PSP.

    so it's another useless topic with the same TEMPORARY hack for the new PSP 2000/3000?

    Either way, im not going to touch the newer PSPs.

    The search for an old PSP 2000 begins, then. Thank you

    here's the whole read me. how tdo you hide the other parts of the code?

    Code:
    5.03GEN-A for HEN
    
    this is an english and short version of the 5.03GEN-A for HEN read-me 
    USE THIS APP WITH CAREFUL!
    This file is coming from WWW.PSPGEN.COM
    Share it as you want for the fun but never forget to link pspgen for that
    
    
    Rules:
    
    01. Connect your PSP to the computer in USB Mode when you have loaded ChickHEN R2.
    02. Unzip 5.03GEN-A_for_HEN.zip on your desktop by example
    03. double-click on LAUNCH-ME.exe (GUI)
    04.PSP Model : choose options PSP-2000 or PSP-3000 (depends of your PSP)
    05.Mode : Choose option FULL
    06.PSP Install : Choose option YES
    07. push START.
    08.the files are copied on your PSP.
    09. Disconnect the PSP from USB.
    10. Launch the main EBOOT.PBP using ChickHEN R2 (only R2! NOT R1!).
    11. When the app load, press L or R to flash the firmware in your flash. YOU ONLY NEED MAKE IT ONE TIME!
    12. Press () to reboot in the custom firmware.
    
    NOTES:
    
    - When you installed the custom firmware in your flash you can remove the "files" folder in the MS ROOT.
    ÂÂFor your own safety, is better that you rename or erase the prx called "flasher.prx" in the MAIN APP folder to
    ÂÂavoid wrong flash times.
    
    - If you shutdown the machine or the psp crash, you will need use again ChickHEN R2 to load the main app and press O 
    ÂÂto reboot in the custom firmware, but if you dont shutdown the machine you are in the custom firmware forever.
    
    
    BUGS:
    
    - In recovery mode after the option "Configuration" the option selected is the next option. For example, Advanced is
    ÂÂCPU Speed, etc. This is a problem with the original recovery, because I dont have the code is very difficult find the problem.
    
    
    REMEMBER! THIS APP DONT TOUCH ANY FILE FROM THE ORIGINAL FIRMWARE! IS YOUR FAULT IF YOU LATER CONNECT TO THE FLASH0 AND TOUCH SOME OFFICIAL FILE AND YOU HAVE A BRICK!
    
    DONT TOUCH THEM AND NOT FLASH ANY CUSTOM THEME!

    Personally, I like a PSP 3000 with 5.03 GEN-A on it. Keeping it in standby isn't a problem for me at all, and if you can live with it, you'll like it.

    how do you put it on standy? i know sliding it quick will just turn off the unit but having long press will totally shuts off. how do you put in in stand by? I want to turn it off and will go the the PSP menu.

    Haha, putting it in standby is sliding the switch up quickly. Shutting it off is sliding the switch up and holding it until the PSP turns off.

    ok. im going to start comfortably on this new psp temporary hack. I'll just slide it quick for stand by and pressing the home hey for psp menu. I'll test it on my semi-destroyed PSP 2001 with LCD issues.

    i'll test the home key and the stand by mode on my M33 hacked PSP 2001 TA-086 so I'll feel comfortable when I was forced to buy a newer PSP 2000
