Q: cAn tHIs bRIk mY Psp? (Can this brick my PSP?)
A:NO YOU CAN'T BRICK YOUR PSP USING THIS METHOD! YOU HAVE TO BE REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, RETARDED TO BRICK YOUR PSP AND YOU MUST REALLY, REALLY, WANT TO BRICK YOUR PSP USING THIS METHOD!!!!
I recommend cold booting the PSP before running HEN D.
**waits for you to cold boot**
Now go to the PHOTO directory and select the HEN D folder.
Now there are three different situations that can happen within 5 seconds.
Nothing happens. You stay in the XMB and the memory stick flashes alot. Don't worry just hold the power switch up till it resets. Its okay nothing happened. Try it again.
Screen turns blue and then red. This means that the files that were supposed to be written to flash0 were not written. Again, don't worry. Go back through the guide and make sure you copied all the necessary files for HEN D and try again.
Screen turns blue and then green. SUCCESS! HEN D has successfully written the necessary flash files and should reboot(I think. I don't remember if it boots after the first time.). If it doesn't, reboot it yourself and run HEN D again.
Please note that after every cold boot that you will need to run the HEN D tiff file again. Don't worry it only writes to flash0 the first time you run it. After that when it successfully loads, you should see a blue screen only. I've had it hang at the Blue screen once or twice but its nothing to worry about.
Now that your 2.71 has been patched go to the Memory Stick option under Game and select "DEVHOOK0.4X launcher for 2.71" Now it'll go through the boot screen.
You'll be presented with a menu. In this menu, Circle is to confirm and Triangle is to cancel. Now here you can select your options. You can change the CPU speed to 333Mhz, Choose UMD settings, etc.
Make sure that under the firmware option, you choose 1.50
Now that everything is set up, select Start on the menu. Now it should go black and the memory stick should start flashing. This is DevHook loading the 1.50 files.
You may get a screen saying that the "Game Could Not Be Started". Thats ok just hit circle or whatever and you should be looking at an emulated 1.50.
