Psp 3000!

Discussion in 'Sony PSP' started by dan-ger-ous, Jun 20, 2009.

  1. [​IMG]


    The PSP-3000 series is a updated version of the PlayStation Portable Slim and Lite (PSP-2000), released in 2008.

    In comparison to the Slim and Lite, the PSP-3000 has an improved LCD screen with an increased color range, five times the contrast ratio, half the pixel response time to reduce ghosting and blurring effects, a new sub-pixel structure, a microphone, a new disc tray design, new button designs and logos, and anti-reflective technology to improve outdoor playability.

    The homebrew community were initially unable to hack the PSP-3000 because it had a new CPU (motherboard revealed to be TA-90v2) which does not support the PRE IPL Exploit used in hacking the previous versions. This is due to the Motherboard having its own PRE IPL where it checks the firmware thoroughly, if passed the PRE IPL is cut off entirely to prevent unwanted modifications to the system.

    In November 2008, Datel announced a "Lite Blue Tool" battery which allows the PSP-3000 to boot into service mode. This battery is not able to start homebrew as the new PRE-IPL has yet to be cracked. [16] The Lite Blue Tool was deterred from distribution due to legal action by Sony. [17] Some time later, Datel changed the name from Lite Blue Tool to Max Power Digital and changed the description.

    hey sinno, there is a crack, but not a permanent one, you do what is known as a ChickenHen update, then install the custom firmware, but and here is a but

    it's a little tricky to do the chickenhen update, but for one of your experience, i don't imagine it would be too difficult.

    I shall do a bit more scouting around and see if there is anything more permanent out there as this article was dated august last year, but there were replies to it dated till september, I'll be back

    Thanks Wheelo
    I knew about ChickenHen allright,but i am looking for a permanent exploit,Dan posted some realy useful info before the downtime and i was going to go scouting myself,using his reference points,i havent ruled out getting a older version yet and heading over to your guide
     
  6. I've found a guide for ChickenHen, but i'm scrambling my brains thinking what did i post that time. There isnt any permanent hack yet for it. As far as i can remember, the RAM of the PSP is used which puts the PSP in a custom firmware state so you can run your games and other homebrew. Once the PSP has been turned off and then on again, the flash will have to be performed again.

    PSPGEN have released Custom Firmware 5.03GEN-A for HEN!! What does this mean? Well its something many of us have been waiting for since the PSP-3000 was released. Full blown Custom Firmware is now possible on your PSP-3000 / PSP-2000 TA088v3. Thanks to GENyUS and PSPGen.com.

    How to Install,

    Pre installation: Make sure you have a PSP-3000 or PSP-2000 with Firmware 5.03 – You need this for ChickHEN R2 to work.

    1. Download ChickHEN R2 by Davee & Team Typhoon
    2. Download 5.03 GEN-A Custom Firmware.
    3. Install ChickHEN and run/load ChickHEN R2
    4. Follow these steps below

    It seems there has been some major advances in opening up this particular hard nut

    Well its out, what you have all been finally waiting for! You’ll need the American Patapon 2 Demo below and the save game exploit below. A PSP with official firmware 5.50 to 6.20 OFW will run this. I can confirm it works on my PSP-2000 and PSP Go. I will post a video up soon of this. Yes it works on PSP-3000 too, all PSP models!

    Download it, run this and enjoy this new breakthrough thanks to Malloxis, n00b81 and wololo. Hold tight for an Eloader release shortly for this Save Game Exploit and you’ll been playing homebrew in no time on that PSP Go or any PSP with 6.20 FW. Good days ahead and just in time for Easter.

    Update: Wololo has just posted that Malloxis infact leaked this exploit, He found it, but Wololo wrote this exploit and Malloxis has just decided to release this trying to get the all credit. An eLoader isn’t ready yet for this exploit. Source: Lan.st Thanks Ninja88 for the info.

    I'll have a look around sinno and get back, if it is true, it is a big breakthrough from the chickenhen way of doing things

    this looks like it is apreliminary step, but not a iso loader, that seems to be the next step so you can load games/iso. the terminology being used is E loader and when that is released you can finally join in the world of custom firmware.
    sorry about that:gamer: but it is definitely a step in the right direction

  11. I was looking over that post and was abit confused about what the entire save game data was about in terms of loading iso's and playing them on the PSP 3000 series. But it seems to be coming together now, hopefully that loader is made and published soon, i'm sure there will be a full hack for it eventually.

    Thanks to sinno and wheelo for the input. :thumbsup:
