    Did I do something wrong? Or is the CFW not supposed to be permanent?

    Also... I upgraded to 5.50 to see the PSN store... can I downgrade it?

    Thanks.

    if you did the hack with ChickHen dont turn it off, the data is all stored in the ram.
    but you can use sleep mode witch wont clear the ram.

    as for downgrading not to sure [​IMG]

    As of yet, with the 3000 psp, the only way to get cfw is using chickHEN, then using cfwenabler, or similar, powering off unit will clear out ram, which is where chickenHEN is stored 'cause the mobo inside isn't hackzored yet.

    3000 psp are not downgradable as of yet.

    Some wonderful people are still working on making the hack permanent, and the fw downloadable, but as of yet, there is nothing of this sort.

    As described above since the pre-IPL (Initial Program Loader) has not been cracked no custom firmware can be flashed permanently to the PSP 2000's with the TA 088v3 (the latter day PSP Slims), or the PSP 3000's. Essentially this means exploits must be temporary as we need Sony's firmware to actually get the PSP running in the first place and then the ChickHen and any CFWEnabler's can be flashed to RAM temporarily. Of course once you power of this volatile area is flushed.

    However, these exploits only work on 5.03. By updating to 5.50 you've effectively sealed your PSP into official mode until someone can find an exploit and the associated gubbins for that firmware.

    The update was a boo boo.
