FAQs

Which versions of PSP will this hack work on?

On PSP 3000 series, like PSP 3001, 3004, 3006 having custom firmware 5.03 Gen-A, for more details see my previous tutorial, it also works on some PSP 2000 with TA-088V3

Will this hack brick my PSP 3000?

No this is completely safe,  I‘ve tested this on my PSP 3004

Any troubles with this PSP 3000 hack?

Yes, if you shut down or restart your PSP, the hack will be gone and you have to install GEN-A again and then GEN-B again, just put your PSP in standby mode to save yourself from trouble

First time GEN-B worked and now it isn’t working?

Press Left trigger while booting into GEN-B

I upgraded to higher official firmware, is downgrading possible?

Downgrading of PSP 3000 firmware is not possible as of now

List of games that work with PSP 3000 5.03 GEN-B

I’ve tested these new games as of now Dirt2, Tekken 6, Little Big Planet, if you have installed GEN-B, plz let us know the games you are able to play with GEN-B

If you have any other questions let me know in comments.

Diogo says:

jatot

GEN-B file is not recognize with my psp3004 with GEN-A installed already…it says corrupted files…

see if you set it up in the folder: PSP \ GAMES … if it does, try to do it again, hang up your psp and strip the memory card …
return the memory card and repeat the whole process (remember that you can get to be 1 so there for 20 time)
almost certainly giving … if it does not format the memory stick for psp and turns to do it again …
hugs

Sorry again but it always says now reboot your psp in CFW5.03GenB

Fifa 10 also works only on CFW 5.03GenB or C and for those who had the problem with reinstalling GenB or C just keep the left trigger pressed while you boot in quick boot and it will work.
