PSPGEN said:The firmware 5.50GEN-D2 and 5.03HEN-B are now online for a while and they have demonstrated their stability.
However, new games coming out and their protective anti-custom firmwares worries begin to ask people who buy their games because UMD do not work necessarily in the state. It is also irritating to see that these protections bother most gamers who buy their games than those who download illegally. Indeed, in general, the ISO is patched or modified to switch to a custom firmware and it crashes so only people who buy their games. This tends to force a user non-hacker who wants to continue to stay in Custom firmware to take advantage of the underground, to dive the wrong side of the force to play his game, even if he has bought.
What's new in these new versions:
What's possible in these new versions?
- Both options are already installed and working perfectly.
- Compatibility with games / demos from the PSN sold until Listed (Tekken 6, Gundam, etc..) - OK
- Compatible with UMD games sold until Listed (Tekken 6, Gundam, etc..) - OK
- These options are under development. We try to establish in the D3 but nothing is yet clear on these points.
- Support for the new Go! Cam (with the fouls Invizimals) - Ongoing. This will take advantage of invizimals and Eye of Judgment. The addition of the compatibility of this new camera will be tried as soon as we receive our copy.
- Support for the NIDS 6.0 - Ongoing Yoshihiro working on the addition of 6.0 nests on 5.50GEN. This would launch SenseMe and Digital Comics. For the moment this possibility is in its infancy.
- Network Update - Ongoing It is posssible to update the custom firmware via internet.
And the release date?
We decided the releaser 5.50GEN-D3 and 5.03GEN C December 15, 2009. This should help to finalize all the points we have set ourselves.
