    QUESTION: What is PSARDumper? and What are Plugins??? what can you do with them or what can they do???

    • kenpachiroks says:

      @ justhir plugin is a type of add-on. It create extra capabilities to for an application……
      The services which the plug-in can use are provided by the host application…..
      PSRARdumper dumps the ofw module….it isn’t available for direct download as it results in some infringement…..the dumped files are needed by an application to load psx e-boots….

      • kenpachiroks says:

    PSP3k / PSP2k v3: Installing CHickHEN R2 for Firmware 5.03 & Custom Firmware Enabler 3.50

    01) Make sure your firmware is 5.03. If your firmware is above 5.03, then bad news, you CANNOT install custom firmware.

    02) Download:

    03) Extract into your PSP’s memory card.

    04) It should look like this:-
    \PSP\GAME\CFWEnabler\Pops\pops files here

    05) Now, the first thing you need to do is get ChickHEN up and running. Put your memory card into your PSP with the files loaded above.

    06) Turn off your PSP. Press and hold the off button till it shutdowns.

    07) Turn on your PSP.

    08) Go to your Photos menu and open the Memory Stick icon.

    09) You should see the ChickHEN folder. Press X on the ChickHEN folder. Once you are in the folder, immediately scroll all the way down (down button) and all the way up (up button) none stop and very very very quickly. Try not to pause.

    If your PSP screen suddenly goes weird and restarts, then you have successfully loaded ChickHEN. To check whether ChickHEN is loaded, go to your System Settings menu -> System Information -> System Software 5.03 ChickHEN R2

    If your PSP hangs or shutdown, then ChickHEN is dead and you need to go back to Step 06 till you get it right. Sometimes you may need to repeat these steps a few times before successfully loaded ChickHEN.

    10) Next, the second thing you need to do is get Custom Firmware Enabler (CFWEnabler) running. CFWEnabler enables you to play ISO/CSO games.

    11) Go to your Games menu and open the Memory Stick icon.

    12) You should now see CFWEnabler 3.50. Press X on the CFWEnabler.

    For the first time, in the CFWEnabler program, Click on “Flash and Start”. NOTE: This is only for the first time, you will not see this again if it is already installed.

    For the second time onwards, pressing X will just restart your PSP.

    13) Now you should have CFWEnabler successfully loaded. To check whether CFWEnabler is loaded, go to your System Settings menu -> System Information -> 5.03 m33-6

    14) You are now ready to go. Put ISO/CSO games into \ISO folder and it will appear in your Games menu.

    15) Once you have finished the game, just put your PSP into standby mode by pressing the off button quickly (don’t hold).

    16) If you have Off the PSP / changed battery / game crashed and shutdown, then go back to Step 06.

    • kenpachiroks says:

      native means…it isn’t neccessary to decrypt the modules….but eboot conversion is a must(obv)

  11. loopeelew says:

    Hey all, wondering if someone could give me slightly simpler instructions on how to get iso/cso’s working. I have a PSP3000, ChickHenR2 ran fine and then i flashed CFE3.5 all ok. System version says 5.03 M33-6.

    I put all ISO files in an folder on the root of MS called ISO. The problem is they don’t show up in the XMB under Game>MS

    I read posts earlier with someone with very similar problems to me asking if they had flashed POPS before CFE3.5. I haven’t as i can’t find out what this is or what it means!

    All i know is that i have no plugins working at the moment as when i got into the plugins menu, screen pops up with:

    Not plugins detected.

    Hopefully some bright spark will be able to sort me out! Thanks in advance.

    • kenpachiroks says:

      do the isos show up before running cfwe 3.5? Try with another MS. Cos they should show up.
      pops is required for psx eboots.

      • loopeelew says:

        no, no ISOs show up. I have used the same MS on someones ‘pandora’ hacked PSPs and the ISOs show up and work fine…

      • loopeelew says:

        I have showed my ability as a true noob!
        I have fixed it now. I had the ISO files inside individual folders in the ISO folder…
        Hope that helps other noobs out, and also makes the experienced guys laugh a bit!
        Thanks for the help anyways guys!
