CFWEnabler 3.51

Custom Firmware Enabler is back with another tweak + bugfix as Xenogears and becus25 have released CFWEnabler 3.51. The changes are minimal, but if your running CFWEnabler over Custom Firmware 5.03 GEN-A then it would be wise to update. As the update server has changed so its important for future updates via your XMB.

Custom Firmware Enabler 3.51 Changelog:

- Fixed a bug when playing within Infrastructure
– New system version
– Improved the Pops flashing system
– New update server.


Custom Firmware Enabler 3.51 for ChickHEN R2, gives you M33-6 features on your TA-088v3+ And PSP-3000’s. You need to use ChickHEN R2 to load this CFW Enabler. And Official Firmware 5.03. Firmware 5.50 is NOT supported!

    Sounds cool. Oh, btw what does it mean exactly : “As the update server has changed so its important for future updates via your XMB.” Does this allow me to access PSN store?

    Question : If I have Gen A Currently installed, can i install this over it? just like that? no strings or complications whatsoever?

    • PSPFan says:

      Your mean 5.03 GEN-A right? Run CFWEnabler and use the uninstall function first. Reboot then run CFWEnabler 3.51

    how to update my CFW 3.50 to CFW 3.51?

    • PSP Homeland says:

      DL the 3.51 CFWEnabler, Turn off your PSP and run chickHEN. while in chicken mode go to CFW 3.5 on your PSP. Hold R and run CFW 3.5, a unistall will pop up, click unistall to the flash that you made using CFW 3.5. Connect you PSP and Delete CFW3.5 and replace it with 3.51.
      Disconnect PSP and run the 3.51.

      • giojho says:

        Thanks for the instructions.

      • giojho says:

        Uninstall is not showing when i Hold R and run CFW 3.5. is there a problem with my PSP?

      • PSP Homeland says:

        are you sure you are in chickHEN mode?

      • giojho says:

        yes i’m in chickhen mode. thanks. i already installed the CFW 3.51 by turn off my psp and reinstall again chickhen then run CFW 3.51 and the uninstall option appear in CFW 3.51 menu. Uninstall CFW 3.50 and install CFW 3.51. Thanks again for the help. Appreciated!!!

    spoofing still does not work. :(

  10. s.snk3 says:

    spoofing does work, create a file called ” spoofmac.txt ” in the root of your memory stick and inside write whatever you want your mac address to show on your psp.

  11. haesslich says:

    I guess it’s time I switched to CFE. I am (and have been since release) running Gen-a, it’s been working great and I haven’t had any major issues so I’m reluctant to switch. I’m still waiting for an update to Gen-a :D if there isn’t one soon I suppose I’ll finally make the switch.

  12. vaan0430 says:

    i have a psp3004 which shipped with the OFW4.21. I have updated it to OFW5.03. Currently managed to load ChickHENR2 and Gen-A w/o problem. So can i switch to the CFWEnabler 3.51 on my psp3004 w/o bricking my psp3004? Do i need to uninstall CFW Gen-A b4 install CFWEnabler 3.51? If so, how do i uninstall Gen-A?
    Thnx in advance.

    Thanks to Davee & Team Typoon for the HEN!
    Thanks to Xenogears and becus25 for the CFWE!
    Thanks to whoever that hacked psp3000 for us!

    • ojconcentrate says:

      i had GENa for a couple of days before switching to CFWE. i just loaded cfwe and select write and install. it just worked fine. it seems to overwrite whatever file it writes to flash0.


  13. ojconcentrate says:

    does CFWE 3.5 have an ‘uninstall’ function? can this option be accessed using a PSP3000?
    I just installed 3.51 and selected Flash and start and it worked fine.
    where would i find the uninstall option for this firmware on a psp3000?


  14. TommyTheMachinegun says:

    can i play ps2 games on my psp with this or with GEN?

  15. ojconcentrate says:

    Since updating to 3.51 the system sometimes doesn’t go correctly into standby. it just happened twice and it need to run chickhen again!
    i’ll be going back to 3.50 for now.

  22. xjc says:

    I don’t speak french. this version still locks up on me. 3.30 ran great, whatever was changed is causing lockups. I will say their not as bad but definably still happening. psp 3001
    I usually have lockups moving from videos/music then to games or it locks up after playing in the browser and then switching games.

    I’ve got psp3004 & i’ve change the firmware successfully from Gen-A to CFWE3.51. I do uninstall Gen-A b4 installing CFWE3.51, & it works fine with me. Can someone tell me what features does CFWE3.51 have?
    How do i access them, i mean what combination of buttons do i need to press to access it?
    So far i only noe the MHU VSH menu. Is there any different between 5.03 MHU and 5.03 MHU-6? Sorry for being noob here…

    mac spoof is not working..can somebody tell me how to fix it??=)

  25. m33sam says:

    I think the answer to the blocking of psn may be DAVEE!!!!. If he could put iso/cso support in chickhen, sony hasn’t blocked that. If he could release R3, that may be the answer……

    I was playing all my favorite games on my PSP2004 after modding it thru ChickenHEN and Custom Enabler 3.51. But from last few days I am experiencing weird result. Whenever I try to run the custom enabler after running it to ChicHEN, my PSP just shuts down. And goes back to official version mode when i restarts it. I had tried all measures to make it work. I tried the ChickenHEN R1, CHhickenHEN R2, Custom Enabler 3.50, Custom Enabler 3.51, but still it doens’t work. Can anyone help? or Am I missing something.
