Install 6.20 TN-A Hen and Prometheus ISO loader on your PSP
Thanks to the efforts of Wololo and Liquidzigong, PSP-3000, PSP-2000 with TA-v88v3 motherboard or PSP Go owners can now have custom firmware (well it’s pseudo-cfw.. it’s actually HBL + ISO loader but let’s call it that for convenience’s sake) installed on their PSPs via 6.20 TN-A Hen and Prometheus ISO loader. With the 6.20 TN-A and Prometheus ISO loader, you can now run PSP games off your memory stick for free :).
Requirements for 6.20 TN-A Hen and Prometheus ISO
- A PSP-3000, PSP-2000 with TA-v88v3 motherboard or PSP Go with official firmware 6.20 installed. If you have a hackable PSP, I would recommend to install a permanent CFW like 5.50 GEN-D3. If you’re not on 6.20, follow the upgrade guide for your PlayStation Portable on the troubleshooting part of the guide
- Patapon 2 Demo
- 6.20 TN-A Hen Mirror
- Prometheus ISO loader | Mirror
Update: Signed 6.20 TN-C Hen is out so if you want to update or are having troubles installing 6.20 TN-A Hen on your PSP, I recommend follow this guide.
Installing 6.20 TN-A Hen and Prometheus ISO loader on your PSP
- Extract the Patapon 2 Demo onto your PC
- Copy the folder (UCUS98734) into x:\PSP\GAME (x is your memory stick or the PSP Go‘s storage)
- Extract the 6.20 TN-A Hen file onto your PC
- Copy it’s contents directly onto your PSP. This contains both the homebrew loader and the exploited save data.
- On your XMB, Run the Patapon 2 Demo
- If you see the screen below. Select ‘No’ to proceed
- Select Yes at this screen to proceed
- Select Continue
- and load the save file. Do note that the icon may be different.
- Once the game has loaded, Press [R Trigger] to load HBL Menu
- Your PSP will now load the HBL menu as seen below. Select Hen to load the 6.20 TN-A HEN on your PSP. A bit of warning though, selecting this option will cause your PSP screen to be blank for a moment then reset to the XMB. This is normal so don’t panic.
If you get a “Warning, memory leak!”, again don’t panic, this is normal.
- Once you’re back on the XMB, press “select” to make sure the TN Hen menu displays correctly.
- Follow this guide on how to install the Prometheus ISO loader on your PSP: Installing the Prometheus ISO loader on your PSP.
- Enjoy your Free PSP Games :).
Important Note: Be sure to check the Prometheus ISO loader compatibility guide
Important Note: You need an ISO folder in your PSP’s memory. Simply create one and dump your PSP ISOs/CSOs there.
Below is a video of the hack for skeptics out there:
If you’re not on 6.20 OFW and want to update your PlayStation Portable to accommodate 6.20 TN-C follow these instructions: HowTo: Upgrade your PSP to 6.20 OFW.
If you’re on a different firmware, you may want to take a look at other Hen installations:
- 6.20 TN-A
- 6.20 TN-C
- 6.20 TN-D
- 6.20 TN-E (updated version)
- 6.20 Pro-B5
- 6.31 Hen
- Signed 6.31 Hen (updated version)
- 6.35 Hen
- Signed 6.35 Hen (updated version)
- 6.35 Pro-B5

could you clarify? the HEN and the OFW of a target psp 3000 have to be the same? looking to hack a psp 3000 running 6.00 OFW . . .
You need to have 6.20 OFW installed. Hang on for a bit, I’m uploading the installer for 6.20 OFW for both the PSP Go and PSP-2000/3000s
Does it work on psp 1000?
Yes but I would recommend 5.50 GEN-D3 + Prometheus v4 over it.
i am waiting for my pandora battery to do that. Prometheus ISO loader only work for me one time, after that it freeze at the load screen. do you know what happen?
is it recommended to update from 5.03 using ChickHEN hack to this one
If you’re still on 5.03, just use chickhen and install the cfw for that. 6.20 is still a work in progress
what sould i do for my psp 1000 6.00ofw, i couldn’t play iso games, should i downgrade?
In this case you upgrade, the link for the updater to 6.20 is within the post.
but he says “1000”, meaning fat. he should instead use a pandora battery right?
all the stuff loaded rite
exept when i go to iso loader and click on the game (NFS SHIFT) , it says LAUNCHING NFS SHIFT , then goes back to XMB . second time i try entering iso loader , it goes to the white PSP screen and shutsdown ………. wat to do ???????
Not sure if NFS: Shift is compatible with the Prometheus ISO loader. Checkout this reference for a list of compatible games:
i just removed all files and put it again …… it works fine …. thanks for the help
i have a question to ask you guy, i try to downgrade my psp 1000 using 6.20 TN-B. to downgrade to 5.03 they need 5.0 version.tx . if i am trying to downgrade to 1.5 what version.tx do i need.
umm 1.5 OFW? Why would you want to do that?
At the moment, since Hellcat’s recovery is still in the process of getting updated to support 6.xx firmware, you can downgrade via a Pandora battery.
i dont know where to put the 6.20 file is it on game savte data or psp?
You have to put it inside X:/PSP/Game
i follow strictly all the steps..
but how come after running the loader…. the screen turns to whit with psp at the center…. then freeze….then shuts down ????

Proceed to the installer for 6.20 TN-C. It’s much easier:
bakit hindi po lumabas ung save file sakin? psp-3001 v6.20 po sir. 🙁
Try the installer for 6.20 TN-C:

What game are you trying to play?
ok na kua..gumana na ung sa patapon

when i run the prometheus it get hang in the boot screen then turn off..what should i do ?
refer to this guide:
Can i install on psp-1000 running cfw 5.50Gen-D3?
I got a PSP 3004 with official version 6.20 .
Is it possible to hack it using the above procedure , and will we have to redo the whole process if we completely shut down the PSP ??
Yes, on both counts.
i have 5.50 OFW in psp-2000. my psp once have CFW 4.03-M33 so it is hackable. if i upgrade to 6.20 OFW then run this will i be able to play ISO and CSO games again???
Yep but for easy installations, install 6.20 TN-D or 6.35-B3 instead.
it keeps freezing my psp
i followed every step and it’s work…exept one thing. when i shut down my psp Go and turn it on after, i cannot lunch the iso loader, i have to repeat the step 4….is that normal, because it’s supposed to be permanent.??
Try installing 6.20 Pro-B6 or 6.20 TN-E. Both have permanent patches
