    hey, i just got my first psp, it is a 1000, and i want to install 5.50 d3, is the best/easiest way to update to 5.03 and install gen from there via chickhen?
    or since i can run homebrew on 1.50, is there a way to install it directly?
    thank you [​IMG]

    You'll need to update to OFW 5.03, then chickhen it, then CFW 5.00 and then you can upgrade to 5.50 Gen D3.

    That is if you want to use Gen as some homebrew wont work.

    oh yeah i did lol [​IMG]
    well, i have a 3000 and a 1000 now! [​IMG]
    it went great, i updated to 5.03, oh wait... yeah chickhen was evil...
    it took like 20-30 times. then i powered down when it worked because i thought that i then knew how to do it right, no lol no so it took like another 15 times, and then did it!
    then yeah i installed the latest gen and now i have yet another console playing backups [​IMG]
    so thanks.

    Since you have chickHEN installed you may as well install a GEN or M33 firmware since you have a 1000.

    lol I had the same problems with the Mrs brothers PSP yesterday. His was a 1000 too, took a lot of goes.

    Thing is when I did my 2000 it was done in the first go.

    Since you were on 1.50 why you didn't just install CFW from there rather than fiddling with the annoying exploit that ChickHen relies upon?

    [​IMG] that is why i asked here!
    but anyway, i couldn't see any guides on it or anything, i only saw stuff which told me to update to 5.03. and then continue as normal.
    i wanted to follow a guide, since i don't want to have to buy a pandora if i brick it by doing something bad.
    like, i read that homebrew (or most of it) doesn't run all all firmwares, and so maybe the hellcats flasher thing wouldn't have worked on 1.50.
    BUT ANYWAY I HAVE INSTALLED IT NOW lol.
    oh yeah, in the guides i was following it said like oh flashing it will take ages etc etc just wait, don't turn off your psp, but like it hardly took anytime.
    psp scene people must be impatient [​IMG]

    -edit. oh yeah and thanks protokun7, some dudes online need to read [​IMG] (see what i did there?)

    If you read the Readme for Recovery Flasher you'd see it worked on 1.50....

    If I were you, I'd turn my memory stick into a magic memory stick and softmod my battery so I have a pandora set in case I ever need one.
