So I saw on twitter peeps having issues running 5.05 games on 6.72. A lot peeps saying games need a update to work? If this is correct , how would I go about doing that? From what I remember fpkg games won’t take a ordinal update unless it’s a disc correct? So I’m best bet would be to stay on 5.05 and wait for a tool ( ) to come out? That won’t ever happens as “we “ don’t have the special keys.
so I guess I’m asking what are my options?
I personally dumped all my games but didn’t think to update before dumping them. thanx in advance

if you own the license, you can use an update. if it's a retail disc, you need the disc to use an update unless fake pkg'd.

fpkg games need a fpkg update correct? would reinstalling them work, once i updated? and as far as saves go they will be ok correct since they are a fpkg save and not a retail save? (when i first jb'd my pro all saves were corrupt, until i ported them with the keystone)
trying to move forward and not backwards lol

here's a video from modedd warfare that explaines the process
i would advise being on HEN 2.1.2 or above when installing and running backported games

I'm not on 6.72, but I haven't heard anything about saves being affected. you should be able to reinstall the fpkgs, but I've heard mixed things like some people having issues getting old games working. I don't know which it is. personally, since games are being back ported, I'm staying on 5.05 for the time being.

so reinstalling the fpkg's from 5.05 will work? i was smart and keep those, for db(database) crashes before backing up db was a option.
