ChickHEN R2 for Firmware 5.03 Released
True to his word, Davee has released ChickHEN R2 for Firmware 5.03. This release Davee has fixed the homebrew bug and TIFF images have been blocked while in HEN.
ChickHEN R2 for Firmware 5.03 Changelog:
[ChickHEN Revision 2] – Team Typhoon
– Now supports homebrew
– Homebrew Support enhanced
– Tiff image blocking in HEN (displays unsupported)
[What it does?]
ChickHEN works as a homebrew enabler for all PSP models (1000, 2000 and 3000) and allows execution of homebrew games and apps on 5.03 Official firmware. It can allow you to play games such as Bugz!, Jellycar or run apps such as pspfiler and PSPTube. Homebrew enhances the experience of a normal PSP without any faulty side-effects.
[What it does not do?]
– Run ISO, CSO or any other form of UMD backup.
– Run PSX Games
– Touch The Flash of your beloved PSP
– Magically allow the use of Custom Firmware (on TA-088v3 or PSP 3000)
– Load plugins
[How do I use it?]
Depending on your PSP Model, you’re going to need a specific tiff image. If you have a Phat (1000) PSP, use the tiff image supplied in the “PHAT” folder and copy it to ms0:/PSP/PHOTO. Else copy the tiff image in the “SLIM” folder to ms0:/PSP/PHOTO.
After you’ve copied the image to your PSP, you can copy the h.bin supplied to the root of the memorystick (ms0:/). This should be sufficient for PSP to reboot into ChickHEN.
[Can it break my PSP?]
ChickHEN works differently to all previous HEN’s. Instead of flashing to flash0, it resides entirely in RAM to prevent any damage to the system. Sure enough, you can run applications in HEN to flash stuff but I strongly recommend against it. ChickHEN comes with no warrenty, no guanantee and you run this software under your own responsibility.
As stated, HEN comes with no warrenty, and this software should not be used in conjunction with homebrew which can countervent any copyright laws.

Everyone else who gave help during the development
So just like before depending on weather you have a PSP-1000 (fat) or PSP-2000 / PSP-3000 (slim) place the h.bin file in your MS root and the chickHEN folder with images in PSP/PHOTO on your memory stick pro duo. Now if you don’t have that folder PSP/PHOTO don’t panic just create it and place the folder in there.
For example if you have a PSP-3000 you would put the Slim ChickHEN folder in PSP/PHOTO so it looks like PSP/PHOTO/ChickHEN with the pretty egg gifs inside. (Sorry but we have to be crystal clear for some people it seems!)
Now making sure you have PSP Firmware 5.03 installed, don’t have PSP firmware 5.03? Get it here -> PSP Firmware 5.03
Ok now in the PSP XMB go to Photo’s / Memory stick and then the chickHEN folder and wait! If it works you’ll see a few colours flash and then your PSP is rebooting itself loading up the chickHEN homebrew environment. Now you can go to Game in the XMB and load some homebrew!!. This time it will work!
Now you’ll be looking for some Emulators like GBA emulators, Super Nintendo, plus some cool homebrew games. Visit our huge PSP Emulator section and PSP Downloads for homebrew games, homebrew applications for your homebrew enabled PSP-3000 or TA88v3 PSP-2000.
