If you are reading this, it means that you want to run homebrew games or apps on your PSP. By default the PSP does not support this kind of software so you will need to install homebrew enabler on your Play Station Portable. Here is a small and easy to understand tutorial on how to run ChickHEN Enabler R2 on your device.

To run the ChichHEN on your PSP first of all you have to check your Firmware. This enabler is for 5.03 version ONLY. Do not try to load it on other versions. If you don’t have the right version, you can download it at our download section. Here are all the things you will need in order to run ChickHEN Enabler R2:
  • USB Cable
  • PSP-3000/2000 with 5.03 firmware (very important)
  • ChickHEN Enabler R2
  • PC
  • And good patience

Download ChickHEN Enabler R2

Connect the PSP to your PC via USB connection. Open the root of the memory stick and copy the h.bin file there as shown on the image below.

Root of the Memory Card

Now open the PICTURE folder and place the ChickHEN folder like in the photo.

Memory Stick/Pictures

When you do that, open this folder and put some JPEGs there, it doesn't matter (I put Prince of Persia wallpapers). Your ChickHEN folder should be something like this.

Memory Stick/Pictures/ChickHEN Folder

Now disconnect the PSP and go to the Pictures folder on the XMB. Select the folder ChickHEN like in the photo.

Scroll down the images and wait. When you see flashing colors, the PSP will reboot and start again in homebrew environment. That means you are ready to go. If your PSP freezes retry until you get it.

This is probably the best game there is for the PSP. If you didn’t play this game and you have a PSP, you are probably lame. =) In the game you begin as Kratos the god of war after you...
