    source
    a programmer at dark-alex.org going by the name "xenogears" succesfully made a tool that allows you to boot M33 from within the 5.03 HEN environment allowing you access to the M33 VSH menu, improved homebrew support, plugins, and ISO/CSO loading.

    what it doesn't do:
    run PSX games.
    boot along with your PSP


    a small warning though:
    this DOES require you to flash some files to your PSP, but this is done as safe as possible.
    so far no serious problems where encountered, only 1 unconfirmed case where HEN would no longer boot.
    just make sure your PSP stays on during the flashing(only once, and takes about 5-10 seconds)

    you can obtain it through the source i posted, and it's a complete package so you don't need to download any additional M33 files(except optional plugins)

    EDIT: forgot to mention, this doesn't work on 3000's yet.
    most likely because M33 was designed to run on 1000/2000 PSP's, while 3000's have slightly different system files.

    I'd like to add that there is no recovery menu too.

    Another step to a official cfw for the 3000 series. It's coming people. Just got to wait a bit longer!

    Nice post. I was wondering when something like this would happen.

    actually according to people on the DAX forums, PSX games DO work on this, you just install the POPSLoader plugin.

    My psp shuts down when loading this. I flashed the files, but when I press x to run it, i wait the 5 seconds, and the screen goes black, and then shuts off completely.
    I'm load it using the HEN R2, and my psp is a slim ta-088v3

    I tried with the CFWenabler and it works (I have a PSP-2004 (TA088v3)). I tested with a homebrew (ScummVM) and with an iso.
    (It takes a few tries to make the PSP reset (and not just turn off))

    It doesn't work, unless you'd like a new brick.

    the 1st version supports it too you know.
    you just have to put some popsloader files in the seplugins folder.

    yes you need the HEN.
    CFWe doesn't have it's own exploit, so it needs to be launched from an already homebrew-enabled environment.

    No. The HEN exploit works on ANY PSP, regardless of if its hacked or not.
