PSP-3000 finally gets hacked

It was inevitable but I’m a bit surprised that it wasn’t Dark Alex to have come out with a solution to the no homebrew on the PSP Brite.

Yes, it is NOW possible to install custom firmware on your PSP-3000.  How?  You just need to have a PSP-3000 with 5.03 official firmware (or ofw for short) and below. How? Proceed to install 5.03 GEN-A via ChickHEN hack.

The 5.03 GEN-A is enabled via the ChickHEN hack from Davee. Using the TIFF Exploit discovered earlier by MaTiAZ, Davee found a way to use that with his new Kernel exploit to allow homebrew on all PSP’s. That includes the previously thought unhackable TA88v3 motherboard found in PSP-3000’s and some newer PSP-2000 units. After installing the ChickHEN Homebrew Enabler, you then install 5.03 GEN-A over it.

Sounds simple? Yep. If you want a more detailed guide, read up this installation guide for 5.03 GEN-A via ChickHEN hack.

As you read above, if you have a PSP-2000 with a TA88v3 motherboard, you can have the 5.03 GEN-A custom firmware installed. If you’ve not sure what motherboard you have, check out the CFW compatibility guide.

Currently, all PSP models can now install custom firmware.

Now who needs the Lite Blue Tool tool from Datel huh? It’s a pure rip off at $29.99 which does nothing but eat your cash.
