HEN

A HEN (Homebrew Enabler) is a piece of software that allows you to run homebrew games and backups on your Sony PSP. The goal is similar to Half-Byte Loader but a HEN usually has more compatibility than HBL, as it has access to the Kernel functions.

downloads


The Hen you need to download depends on the firmware of your PSP, and is independent of the model (it works on all models, 1000, 2000, 3000, and PSP Go). Click on the firmware installed on your PSP to be redirected to the appropriate download page:

If you have a firmware below 6.20, we suggest you upgrade to 6.20 or higher, and install one of the above.

    why wait for the 6.37hen if you can upgrade your psp to 6.38 and downgrade it to 6.20 where you can get HEN. THAT WOULD WORK. They just released a downgrader for 6.38ofw.

    thanking you in advance..

      Well there are two ways for you, first you can upgrade your firmware(FW) to 6.20 and then apply TN-HEN C or something like that or you can upgrade to 6.35 and use the signed HEN or the LCFW for that.

      For updating/upgrading the FW:
      1. Connect the PSP to the PC/Laptop/System
      2. Create a folder “UPDATE”[without the quotes, but the name should be in uppercase] inside the PSP/GAME/ folder
      3. Download the *.rar file from : http://psp.dashhacks.com/file/1855%5Bfor 6.20 OFW], http://psp.dashhacks.com/file/2036%5Bfor 6.35 OFW]
      4. extract the contents and paste them inside the UPDATE folder
      5. disconnect the PSP from the system and scroll to the game menu
      6. inside there you will find the update, connect the PSP to the AC mains supply and then start the update.

      After that download the HEN/LCFW appropriate for your updated PSP FW. Then play and enjoy. I have recently started using the LCFW.

    As long as june 16 there was yet the new 6.39 OFW, as well the new CFWs working in 6:39 FW: neur0n’s LCFW 6.39-ME (except for PSP Go), and CB & VF LCFW PRO.

    Hello, Im Asking About. Another Hen or CFW. For PSPGo. I Dont Want PRO CFW. or TN-E. My Version Is 6.20.

    Greetings From Mexico.

    • equis

      You don’t want TN or PRO??? Then what do you want??? Those are the only choices for you, using a PSPGo with 6.20 FW. There is other option, neuron’s ME CFW, but casualty doesn’t apply to PSPGo.

  14. saurav

    is there a vsh menu for 631 pro?

    • equis

      You are so out of date. 6.31 PRO is not supported anymore, so my advice is to update your OFW to 6.35 or 6.39 and download one of the new CFWs: PRO or ME. They come with integrated VSH.

    woops, i posted it twice. sorry.

  19. mister munch

    it’s a shell, like IR shell, or arnold’s SHELL but it was released quite some time ago and it makes your psp have an ipod touch interface (you also have to hold you psp so its on it’s side and the x, o triangle and square buttons are up in the air the ceiling)
    ____
    r button here /____\ – x o square and triangle buttons here
    ll ll
    ll ll – screen here
    ll____ll
    L button here \____/ – d pad and analog stick here

    (sorry for my cruddy psp diagram)

    that is what IvEr is

    dammit it srewed up the diagram 🙁

    Yeah, I know by now, googled it. But I will tell you what is read in the readme.txt:

    “IMPORTANT READ: I made a mistake when setting archive Iver PSP folder that is named theme, which is in the dossierPSP / GAME folder to rate Iver PSP is not the right place Please save this file “theme” in the PHOTO folder of your MS, otherwise you’ll get an error at the start of the homebrew, I wanted to say again because the archive take much time, at least the upload. Thank you.”

    Also, it was common in that times a shell making changes in the flash of your PSP, I hope you didn’t screw up your console. You should have considered that before using a very old shell in a new firmware.
