    After installing firmware, each time you turn off the PSP, the CFW gets uninstalled as well, right?
    If so, would it be possible to reinstall it without access to a PC?

    Yeah...

    Just start whatever semi-CFW you're loading up from the XMB and you're ready to go.

    EDIT: THAT WAS SO CLOSE.
    Once I posted, xist post showed under mine. We must of been like, a second apart.

    Once you have everything set up on your PSP once then you'll no longer need a PSP to initialise that temporary custom firmware.

    Few more questions,
    this doesn't affect game data in any way, does it?
    Repeatedly uninstalling and installing won't damage the system in any way, right?

    No, because it isn't stored permanently. It uses the RAM. Also, if you want a permanent CFW, try 6.20 GEN-D Perma patch.

    Kind of confused, so basically, whenever i save my game data and turn my PSP of, neither the save nor the game iso will get affected due to CFW uninstalling right? @_@
    Also, permanent CFW? I don't see anything like that in the softmod topic, or maybe i am just blind @_@

    OP's PSP is 3k. Gen-Ds would brick it.

    Gundam Eclipse: I would recommend 5.03 Gen C + Signed kxploit. Most games would work on it.

    Just DL these if you're on 5.03 or below: (all can be found at pspslimhacks, also DL the 5.03 OFW if you're not on 5.03 yet)

    • ChickHEN r2
    • 5.03 GenC
    • Signed kxploit

    [*]Boot your psp 3k to ChickHEN r2 (may take a while if you're unlucky)[*]Run GenC installer[*]Done

    The signed kxploit is for when you loose your cfw (crash, battery, etc). Just run the kxploit everytime your cfw gets erased from RAM.
    You can delete both chickHEN and GenC after first install, then just use the signed kxploit from then on.

    I implore you to look at this.

    TN-D != Gen-D

    Although Total_Noob worked with the Gen team AFAIK.

    The thing is, it works with 3000.
    @OP, you'll come to a CFW guide for 5.03 and downgrade guide for 6.20 if you click on the PSP in my sig. If you don't want to downgrade, install 6.20 TN-D and then install the perma patch. To run isos use prometheus iso loader.

    Yeah, TN-D is a permanent CFW for any PSP but not Gen-D.

    I just noticed that I had told him to run GEN-D. I'm extremely sorry OP. Just follow the instructions in my previous post and you should be just fine.

    Actually, i have yet to buy a PSP, therefore the question, because i was wavering between buying a PSP 2000 online or a 3000 from a nearby mall.
    As long as i don't need access to a PC for reinstalling CFW, i have no problem.
    Thanks for the guides though, i will make sure to refer to this topic once i get my PSP.
    Just to confirm, i can install CFW as long as the OFW is 6.35 or less, right?

    If you can't buy yourself a fully hackable psp 2k, then I would go for a 3k. Better screen and better buttons. 2k buttons feel wierd.

    I had the 2000 and now I'm playing a 3000 and it's really not a big deal going from permanent CFW to the temporary one. I just keep a memory card handy with the hack in case my PSP crashes during a game or homebrew. It used to happen even on my 2000, the only difference is now it takes about twenty seconds to reboot and reinstall (every subsequent installation is actually completed in no time, I suppose it's cached somehow)

    Just accept that all these concerns are baseless. Everything will be fine running a 3000.

    I need to point out something...

    What most people think is the PSP turning off is actually it's sleep mode (where you flick the switch and it appears to shut off). The hack is not undone in sleep mode, so you can pretty much keep the hack on indefinitely (unless you go three days without access to a charger or something).

    It's fully shutting the PSP down (holding the switch) that undoes the hack.

    But all you need to do is run the LCFW runner icon thing from the games menu to re-hack it after you've done it once.

    I just got a PSP 3000.
    The firmware is 6.35.
    And erm, well, stupid question:
    I have to put all the files necessary files for hacking unto this, right?:

    Only difference between the image and the one i have is that its black.

    Also, i should follow the softmod guide, right? Or is it outdated? Asking since its not been updated since January...

    Sorry, am still a complete noob when it comes to the PSP >_>;
