Dark_AleX's 3.03 OE-A Released

Recommended Posts

This is custom firmware 3.03 Open Edition Revision A.


The installation is very similar to the one of 3.02 OE-A.


Copy oeupdatemaker and oeupdatemaker% to /PSP/GAME if you are in firmware 1.50, or to

/PSP/GAME150 if you are in 2.71 SE or 3.02 OE.


Get the 1.50 and 3.03 sony updates, and put them in the oeupdatemaker folder with the names

150.PBP and 303.PBP.


Run oeupdatemaker. It will generate the dxar file DATA.DXAR, whhich has the following hashes:


MD5: 03186D46D2F1B0ACD923098BEBC87281

SHA1: 3C80833A970EEA16A94D74DAFF6220889A9CEE4A


Copy 303oeflasher and 303oeflasher% to /PSP/GAME if you are in 1.50, or to

/PSP/GAME150 if you are in 2.71 SE or 3.02 OE.



Move the DATA.DXAR file to the 303oeflasher.


Run the program. When it finishes, it will ask you to reinit the psp. When you do that, you will be

in 3.03 OE-A.


Changes from 3.02 OE-B to 3.03 OE-A


- Change from firmware 3.02 to 3.03

- Added support for compression in psx isos (look at popstation documentation for more details).

- Added support for decrypted document.dat (psx games manual) (look at docmaker documentation for more details).

- Fixed a bug regarding free region: a stupid bug caused it not to work at all.

Now it should work, although it has not been tested due to lack of umd's of different regions

between the testers and me.

- Some generic bug fixes in the code.

- Redded the sdk.

- Fixed some bugs that could cause the brick of korean/chinese/taiwan/singapure psp when restoring default settings.

To prevent this, the region of those psp's are faked to japanese when fake region is disabled.

For same reason, korean region is removed from fake region.

- Added australia/new zeland and russia to the regions to be faked.


Thanks to DragonKeeper for the tip!

Dark_Alex is my gosh darn HERO. This firmware is the bomb. I've been playing around with a bunch of old psx games, and they work great.

The recovery console is a work of genius. I bricked my psp a couple of days ago, and thanks to the recovery mode, I was able to fix it.

I highly recommend this firmware.
