Play games that require OFW 5.55 and 6.00

So you’ve tried the version.txt hack and it didn’t turn out well (in short, it didn’t work for you). It’s admittedly a hit or miss bypass since not all games relied on checking a version.txt file to see if you were running the right firmware version. To date, the best and most reliable way to be able to play games that require OFW 5.03 to 5.50 is to upgrade to 5.50 GEN-A/5.50 GEN-B (no luck for partially hackable PSPs).

But what if you had a game that requires 5.55 or 6.00? Well, there’s this method.
Important Update: This guide has long since been outdated by Sony’s recent patches, to play the latest PSP games, you need the Prometheus module. You can find the install for 5.03 GEN-C, 5.50 GEN-3, 5.50 GEN-D4 and 5.00 M33 linked here.

Important Note: This is ONLY for PSP users who have the following custom firmware installed: 5.50 GEN-A, 5.50 GEN-B, 5.50 MHU, 5.03 GEN-A, 5.03 MHU and 5.00 M33. If you have anything below this, consider upgrading.
Update: Added Eboot Patcher for people running 5.00 M33, 5.03 GEN-A, and 5.03 MHU.


Important Note: version 4 of Game Decrypter works well with 5.00 M33, 5.03 MHU and 5.50 MHU. πŸ˜€

  1. Open the ISO of the game you want to hack with UMDGen
  2. eboot

  3. Important: Go to File > File lists > Export and save it as game.txt.
  4. eboot

  5. Go to PSP_GAME > SYSDIR. You should see an eboot.bin file.
  6. eboot

  7. Right click on the eboot.bin file and choose Extract Selected. Place it somewhere on your PC that’s easy to remember. The desktop is good. Just don’t close UMDGen yet, you’ll still need it later
  8. eboot

  9. Extract the files for Game Decrypter to your PC. Copy the PSP folder from the extracted files right into the root of your memory stick. Note: The root of your memory stick is the actual drive your PC sees when you connect your PSP.
  10. Copy the eboot.bin that you’ve extracted in step 5 to the root of your memory stick. Note: If your PSP is F:, it should appear as F:\eboot.bin
  11. Disconnect your PSP from your PC and run Game Decrypter from the XMB
  12. eboot

  13. You will see the screen below. If you’re on 5.50 GEN-B2 Press X to decrypt the eboot.bin. If you’re on 5.00 M33 or 5.03 GEN_A or 5.03 MHU, press O
  14. eboot

  15. Connect your PSP to your PC again. At the root of your memory card, you should see a new folder called DECRYPTOR. Copy the eboot.bin that’s inside it to your PC.
    Important Note: If you’re running 5.00 M33 or 5.03 GEN-A or 5.03 MHU, make sure to follow the steps below:

    Eboot Patcher

    • Download and extract the Eboot Patcher (Mirror 1).
    • Start PC program Eboot Patcher (the executable is named Patch.exe)
    • eboot

    • Clicking on Browse, select the EBOOT.bin by patch
    • eboot

    • Click on Go! to patch the file
    • eboot

    • On your PC, Add the newly decrypted eboot.bin into the SYSDIR folder that’s on UMDGen by right clicking on the right pane, Add > Add files.
    • eboot

  16. On your PC, Add the newly decrypted eboot.bin into the SYSDIR folder that’s on UMDGen by right clicking on the right pane, Add > Add files.
  17. eboot

  18. Import the game.txt that you’ve extracted in step 2 via File > File List > Import.
  19. eboot

  20. Save (Rebuild) your game as CSO or ISO
  21. eboot

  22. Your game should work now.

Important: Make sure you delete the Decryptor folder on your PSP before trying to decrypt a new game.


Help! I’m getting just a black screen when playing a game hacked with this method. You have a game that’s not compatible with this method πŸ™ Either that or your missed a step. Try to look for an eboot.bin file, skip to step 9 and test it out if you want.

Is this safe? Yes. 100% Safe

    guys!. can i use this method to decrypt psx games so i can play it on my psp?

  36. smile011380 thea October 6, 2009 Reply

    hi. im a bit confuse with STEP 1 to 4. in step 1 you want me to open the iso/cso game in the UMDGEN, we can do this by open the UMDGEN then inside of it we just click the open then look for the path of the game but in step 2 you want me to do this “Go to File > File lists > Export and save it as game.txt” but if i do this there is no .txt game in the folder of my game thus i can’t see anything. so how can i save the game in .txt? in step 3 you want me to open the iso/cso game. does this mean i need to save 2 copies of the game? one in .txt and the other in .cso or .iso? coz if i have .txt this file does extract the EBOOT.bin appreciate if you could add picture on how you do the step 1 to 4. thank you so much in advance.

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade October 6, 2009 Reply

      *sigh* I knew I should’ve provided pics. I decided against it because I worded the instructions to be followed easily. Guess it had the opposite effect.

      For clarification:
      Step 2: You just need to export the file list to a text file. It’s not a copy of the contents of the UMD, it’s just a list of files.
      As indicated in the screenshot that I’ve just added, you can name it anything you like and place it anywhere you like. I just chose “game.txt” by default so you have something to name the file with. You will need this file in Step 12.
      if you’re curious as to what the text file of the exported file list contains:

      0000027 , UMD_DATA.BIN
      0000028 , PSP_GAMEICON0.PNG
      0000030 , PSP_GAMEPIC1.PNG
      0000055 , PSP_GAMEPARAM.SFO
      0003527 , PSP_GAMEUSRDIRGT.VOL

      Step 3: I said you just need to reopen UMDGen THEN load the ISO again.

    I did this on my PSP 2004 with chickhen r2 + 5.03 M33-6 but cant get games to work.
    Tryd it with GT US+EU Dirt2 Tetrist mini.

    I think i want to go to 5.03 GEN-A because it all seems to work on gen’s but how can i do that?

    I had 5.03 MHU(cfw 3.6) before, then i tryd to install GEN-A but that didnt work, and MHU didnt load after that either anymore so i put M33-6 (CFW 3.5) on and that one did work again.

    Is there someway to uninstall the CFW’s out of the flash (0 it is afaik)?

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade October 9, 2009 Reply

      Which version of Game Decrypter did you download? I just updated the links a few hours back so I’m wondering if you downloaded the current one (version 4).

      Also, no. There’s no way for you to permanently install CFW yet.

      • Uberrabbit Rebuu October 10, 2009 Reply

        I used v4. Maybe it doesnt work on 5.03 yet? Cos i see alot of problems with ppl that have 5.03 πŸ˜›

        I know that i dont perma install CFW but when i tryd to install GEN-A it didnt reboot as it should so i thougt oke not working. Lets boot CFW MUH again, but that went to black screen aswell and had to pull out batery.

        So then i thought CFW maybe was still in some flash mem part cos you have to ‘install’ it first time, and because of that it might sat in the way for GEN-A.

          So long as it’s not a game decrypted on a 5.50 gen psp that you’re going to run on a 5.00 M33 or 5.03 gen-a one, you’ll be fine.

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade October 11, 2009 Reply

      *sigh* it will prompt you if you want to overwrite the files on your memory stick but since the CONTENTS of the folder you’re copying aren’t there yet you won’t be overwriting anything. You’re just basically taking a shortcut instead of individually copying single files to their correct directories.

    the eboot patcher didn’t work so i just took the eboot i decrypted and add it to the iso and it work with no problems so far surprised i run 5.03MHU custom firmware enabler 3.60

  64. smile011380 thea October 13, 2009 Reply

    help me with my problem please. btw, does the game needs to be iso before decrypting or is it ok if it is cso?

    I can not decrypted the eboot
    leaves a message and does not create any files in the folder.

    • quahzy l3east October 14, 2009 Reply

      Oh. And one more thing: I’ve read that that for Persona, you’ll have to switch your “UMD ISO MODE” to “Sony NP9660” from the “M33 VSH MENU”… Remember in order to access this menu, press the “SELECT” button after your psp is booted up.

  66. quahzy l3east October 14, 2009 Reply

    I had the same problem trying to decrypt certain iso’s. Yes, it can be a cso and you can decrypt and patch it, thea. But if you’re trying to decrypt the iso/cso and its unable to, chances are that you’re using an iso/cso that has already been decrypted for a different firmware. You’ll have to download a different iso or cso, or you can download the EBOOT.BIN file that’s been patched for the iso you have. Make sure it’s been patched for the same firmware YOU’RE using! That’s what I had to do for GT Portable…

    I just tried this with SMT: Persona (USA) but the part with the eboot patcher won’t work. It always says that the eboot.bin is not patched. So i tried it without that step on my M33-6 and I got the game to start at least but after the intro movie the game stays black. I can quit the normally though. Anyone knows how to get SMT: Persona working on M33-6?

      Thanks, I haven’t tried FMA so I don’t know if decrypting it will work but I do know that like the Evangelion game, it detects CFW preventing psps with CFW to play it.

    Hey guys,I have just installed 5.50 GEN-D Firmware,how can i get this to work?
    When i start the decryptor which version of psp should i choose?Should i press X or O?
    I pressed O,decrypted the file successfuly but then the patcher which you browse for the decrypted eboot.bin created a file named “eboot.bin.bak”(it’s in the same folder with the eboot.bin) Which file should i have to choose to replace the original eboot.bin in UMDGEN?eboot.bin.bak or eboot.bin?

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade November 19, 2009 Reply

      5.50 GEN-D is very stable and upgrading is safe (just don’t experiment, read the instructions carefully). And yes, you can still downgrade your PSP using the Hellcat’s recovery tool or something similar.

    I read the tutorial above & one of the prerequisite is to have these CFW (5.50 GEN-A, 5.50 GEN-B, 5.50 MHU, 5.03 GEN-A, 5.03 MHU and 5.00 M33)
    It does not mention CFW Enabler
    My PSP mobo version is T-088 V3 so it is only partially hackable
    That’s y I used CFW Enabler to play CSO/ISO games
    Can I use this method in my PSP to decrypt the game files?
