I'm currently re-uploading everything as RapidShare has decided to remove everything from my account, which is really nice of them. I'll use someone else this time I think. A few are still working though, so you'll have to check and DON'T complain.


So, I've decided to make this to help you find the firmwares you need faster. Hope this helps someone out there ^^
This will be edited in time to provide the latest custom firmware releases and the like
All download links are RapidShare, mirrors available upon request!
winRAR is required to get access to these files!

Custom Firmwares:
M33
5.00 M33 | MegaUpload mirror Official firmware 5.00 required! See below!
5.00 M33-2 | MegaUpload mirror
5.00 M33-3 | MegaUpload mirror
5.00 M33-4 | MegaUpload mirror
5.00 M33-5 | MegaUpload mirror NOT RECOMMENDED!
5.00 M33-6 | MegaUpload mirror

NOTE TO M33 USERS! You can go straight to 5.00M33-6 from 3.52 M33-4 with just the 5.00M33-6 file and the 5.00 OFW! Thanks to xist for that.

GEN
5.03GEN-A | MegaUpload mirror chickHEN R2 required- PSP-2000 AND 3000! TA-088v3 MOTHERBOARD SUPPORTED! 5.03 firmware required, see below!
5.50GEN-A FULL INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED!
5.50GEN-B | MegaUpload mirror 5.50GEN-A required, above! DO NOT USE ON PSP-2000 v3 AND ON PSP-3000! IT WILL BRICK!
5.50GEN-C will not be posted because it causes semi bricks, bricks, flash1 corruption, doesn't load .cso files and so it's better not to.
5.50GEN-D ALL FILES INCLUDED, INCL. 5.50 FIRMWARE. README INCLUDED, AS ALWAYS! NOT FOR USE ON TA-088v3 MOTHERBOARDS EITHER...YOU KNOW THE DRILL!
5.50GEN-D2 | MegaUpload mirror 5.50GEN-D REQUIRED FOR THIS!
5.03GEN-B This is for PSP-2000v3, TA-088v3 motherboards and PSP-3000's! Full readme included.
5.03GEN-C This is for PSP-2000v3, TA-088v3 motherboards and PSP-3000's! Full readme inclused.
5.50GEN-D3 XGEN updater included here. If you aren't on 5.50 already and are upgrading, be sure to download 5.50 first from here!

Official firmwares: Please, only use these if you know what you're doing!
I have only posted the firmwares that have known exploits contained in them. If you don't know what they are, Google. Descriptions may be added over time
1.50
3.90
4.01
5.00 Use this for installing any M33 version!
5.03 Use this for using chickHEN R2!
5.50

Other useful things
chickHEN R2 This can only be used on firmware 5.03! Use this on TA-088v3 or later motherboards to install 5.03GEN-A which is above.
Game Decrypter v4 Use this to decrypt your 5.55 or 6.00 required games! Instructions included, or a better tutorial is here by MZ EXE.
UMDGen 4.0 Used for the game decrypter and many other things
PSPident Use this to determine what PSP motherboard you have and such
Rain's Ultra Lite MMS Maker for 5.00 M33-4 Use this to quickly make an MMS (magic memory stick) to be used in conjunction with a Pandora Battery. Installs 5.00 M33-4!

No point in posting the updates of M33. May as well just post the final one. Also Frog-Gaming is supposed to be BAD....

Thanks...oh, and BTW, your post wasn't the first, lol.

@xist: I posted the other ones just in case somebody wants to test something or do something on one of the older ones. Now I've messed around doing them I'm going to keep them up, even if no one uses it. And I've removed Frog-gaming now.

Fair enough. Maybe make a note that you can go straight to 5.00M33-6 from 3.52 M33-4 with just the 5.00M33-6 file and the 5.00 OFW?

this will really help noobs or people who have been out of the psp hacking scene for a while find out the latest CFW, though i think you should include ChickHEN r2 files and the 5.03 OFW update so ppl who are lower than 5.03 firmware know they don't have to use a pandora.

I'm going to, I'm still editing it to put all the files in.

@xist: I will do, thanks.

It helped me out and I'm not even getting a PSP until Saturday

EDIT:
Is 5.50GEN-A only for boxes with an A on it, and 5.50GEN-B only for boxes with a B on it?

No...It's 2 different versions, if you're looking to use that firmware, then you should start with A and update to GEN-D, then D2. PLEASE don't do this on a PSP-3000 or a 2000v3.

EDIT: I've added some MegaUpload mirrors, but for some reason some of the GEN firmwares (the larger ones) don't seem to want to upload, so I might either upload them elsewhere or just leave it.

Wait...... I thought you could put GEN on the PSP 3000. VIDEO What else should I use to get the free ISOs and CSOs?

No, it's only 5.03GEN-A that currently works on a 3000, and if you're buying one new, as I said in a PM, it probably won't be under 5.03 unless you get old stock.

I'm getting a used one on Saturday. Will the new 5.03 GEN-B work on the PSP 3000?

That doesn't mean it can be installed on a PSP 3000 with the firmware version 5.50, does it? BTW, what about the 5.03 GEN-B that comes out on the 31st?
Yes, that's the one for PSP-3000's and 2000v3 that will *hopefully* work with ALL games. If your PSP comes with firmware 5.50, then you won't be able to install custom firmware.

Ok. Thanks! So do I need to install the 5.03 GEN-A, then the 5.03 GEN-B?
