Booting to ChickHen R2
[fieldset="For PSP 2k,3k"]If you want to boot ChickHEN R2 on these kind of PSPs (2k,3k). I recommend you use this modded version of ChickHen. It is guaranteed to work in the first try.
P.S : The same steps apply with this one too.[/fieldset]
*If you have a Japanese PSP, then I recommend you change the Character Set in System Configuration to US if you don't have it set to there yet.
1 - Download ChickHEN R2. Open the ChickHEN R2 archive. For slim users(psp-2000,3000): place the folder inside Slim with gif images into your PSP memory stick PICTURE folder (ms0:/PICTURE) (later it will be PICTURE/ChickHEN), for fat users(psp-1000): place the folder inside FAT with gif images into your PSP memory stick location PICTURE folder.
2 - Now place the h.bin into the root of your memory stick pro duo. Where the folders PSP, MUSIC etc are located.
3 - Go back into settings in your psp and turn off UMD Auto-Start and UMD Cache.
4 - Place the memory stick into the PSP, and navigate to your photos folder, and enter the ChickHen folder. Wait, you will see five egg giff images, these will start to load thumbnails. Your PSP may freeze and reset. Just keep retrying and ChickHEN R2 will load up
