First of all, This guide was borrowed DIRECTLY from Hardrive's guide thread. I only modified small parts of it to enable us TA-082 users stuck @ Firmware 2.71 to run Devhook.
ALL CREDIT FOR SCREENSHOTS AND GUIDE GOES TO HARDRIVE. I ONLY RE-WORDED THIS GUIDE SO THAT USERS FOR HEN-D CAN NOW USE THIS EDITION OF DEVHOOK! THE ORIGINAL GUIDE IS LOCATED AT
This guide is only meant to work if you have a 2.71 PSP with Homebrew Enabler Revision D (HEND)
In order for this to work, you must have the Previous Devhook Porter (.4x) by Dark_Alex. You must also ATLEAST have the 1.5 dump installed, meaning you can successfully emulate 1.5 on your 2.71 PSP.
Please be aware:
This guide contains flashing to FLASH1. Flashing files to the flash 1 will NOT BRICK your PSP. The worst that could happen is a blue screen, which would result in your settings being reset to factory defaults.
If you get a BLUESCREEN saying that your PSP files are corrupted, DO NOT PANIC! Press 'O', and reboot your PSP. Redo the Flash install (Uninstall first, then INSTALL again). I personally did this, and absolutely NOTHING bad happened.
Again, the source of this guide is located at
ALL CREDIT goes to Hardrive and the others credited in his thread. I only re-worded it so that users of 2.71 can easily use this!
