    i was using Skyline969's CHA CFW Installer Full.exe installer when i ran into a problem at step 1.

    I installed filmware version 5.03 right
    then i went to step 1.

    1.Go to pictures, let the 3 image thumbnails and the preview for the mhuspeed3 folder load

    but when i clicked on that folder my psp freezes and turns off, is that supposed to happen, also it said there was corrupt data in one of the files like pspident, do i delete all of the installer files and start again, or something else, what should i do....sorry that i sound like a noob i just want to brick my psp or anything.

    That is what it does.
    You have to keep trying until some colours flash and reboots into ChickHen mode.

    Edit: Oh, and some advice given off some other post I read: Open the folder and scroll right down to the bottom. Repeat as necessary.

    when you say colors do you mean a tv kinda of haze
    if it freezes then restarts without me having to manually turn it on am i good?
    Also what about that corrupted data stuff?

    Check your firmware version, see if it worked.

    Also, make sure homebrew is in PSP/GAME folder.
    With the EBOOT.PBP in a folder itself.

    So its like this PSP/GAME/PSPIDENT > EBOOT.PBP

    yeah you're good, now try not to switch it off until a week or so... check ur firmware it shud be sumthing like 5.03 speed 3 or sumthing. and about the corrputed data its because your psp wasn't homebrew enabled mode, now check it should work..

    EDIT: ok dean you beat me to it [​IMG]

    Get your PSP version
    Settings > System Settings > System Information (I think)

    It should say something other then just 5.03

    ok i found out the reason why i was messing up i think; it said
    "let the the 3 image thumbnails and the preview for the mhuspeed3 folder load"
    then it said "mhuspeed3 and let the images load. Don’t touch anything."
    i was toughing stuff when i wasn't supposed to...
    then it said unless it reloads keep on doing it, i face palmed myself like 10 times

    EDIT: i got it to go into MHUSpeed thank you for helping

    EDIT2: i got a TA-088 v1/v2 motherboard model

    new problem...

    "12.Go to games, and to memory stick
    13.Select the 5.50 GEN-D3 installer
    14.Choose to install 5.50 GEN-D3 custom firmware (Don’t worry about the other options)"

    I went to games, and to memory stick
    i didn't see the option select 5.50 GEN-D3 installer
    is it supposed to be in the hellcat’s recovery flasher 1.6 or is it supposed to be the option at the bottom of games>memory stick>bottom(it says corrupted)

    1. Check your PSP is in ChickHEN mode
    2. CHeck you have 550.pbp in the root and that the hierarchy for the installer file is PSP\Game\Update\Eboot.pbp

    I checked the memory stick and i can't get into HEN it say's

    "Error: Incompatible firmware. Only 5.03 is supported."

    So what do i do now i can't get into GEN-D3 without downgrading and that would defeat the purpose because my psp would turn off when i upgrade not allowing me to have HEN any other idea's?


    EDIT:i had to delete the "update" folder and rename GEN-D3 folder update
