hi! (sorry if this has been asked before, i tried a search but coulden't find the answer i was looking for)
Recently I purchased a new psp2000 (non-hackable motherboard) with firmware 5.03.
Luckily, via chickHEN (& the wonderfull guides here) , i'm able to play homebrew and install custom firmware.
I'm wondering, how come a small MS seems to work 'better' with chickHEN than a large (4GB) MS?
The guy at the store told me: "Use a small MS, like 512/256 MB for running chickHEN and then swap it for your 4GB and run your GEN-C firmware. Small MS's work best for running chickHEN"
Later I tried running chickHen from my 4gb MS duo pro (real, not fake) and coulden't get it to work(even after formating it in my psp). But, on my 512mb MS, i boot into chickHEn with 1 try.
What's the reason that small MS's work best with ChickHEN i wonder?
Or was I just unlucky with my tries on the 4gb stick? (only tried 3 times, I read some ppl here having to try +10 times before they can boot into ChickHEN)
