    Basically, I have been using Prometheus for quite a long time and am thinking to upgrade as 6.35 PRO runs more games without requiring any patch whatsoever.

    Now, I would like to have suggestions as which one is better functionality wise and if it really is worth to upgrade.
    I know 6.35 is easy to update to CFW as it does not require any exploit like HEN.
    And would my existing plug-ins like CWCheat work on 6.35?

    But promitheus already runs new game without patching [​IMG]
    I think you should stay on 5.50 pro4 because this CFW has compatibility with everything (ISO,Emulators,Plugins)

    PRO-B4 has more functionality built-in. I've lessened the number of plugins I use because it can already access PSN, and lets me disable gameboot and such.

    Some plugins work, some don't. I've only use CWCheat for POPS (not normal games), but it works. CMFusion appears to work for normal games as well. For those that don't work, there's sometimes a 6.x replacement.

    It can play PSX games, but you can't uses POPSloader to increase compatibility for the titles that need it.

    That is PRO-B4. PRO-B4 has both 6.35 and 6.20 versions.
    There was another for 6.20 (TN-D), but it's outclassed by PRO-B4 at the moment.

    Go on 6.20 Pro B4.
    Been able to download everything from PSN again. Even the free DLC of Patapon 3. PSX problems dont occur too.
    Faster loading of ISO and such.

    Are there any tools for creating pandora on pro-b4? I'm currently on m33 with prometheus and I'm thinking about updating.

    Meh, I used Hellcat's recovery and installed a 5.00 M33 and then updated to 6.20 as Prome wouldnt even let me run the OFW updater

    I did the same thing. Hellcat's recovery first, then OFW 6.20, and finally Pro B-4. It was a breeze, and I didn't even need my pandora. In my opinion, no sense not updating to 6.20 Pro B-4. Everything loads faster, and game compatibility is great. However, I don't use plugins at all, nor do I play psx games. I managed to get Star Driver running past a certain point in the game where Prometheus 4 would always freeze at, which was all the reason I needed to stay. Also, before you say all games can be patched, I would like to say that this game had been out for a few months now, and there is still no patch in sight.

    ISO tool is the universal patcher (and gets updated often).

    i wouldnt go that far, the human is the ultimate patcher, iso-tool has limitations.

    Why 6.20 instead of 6.35 even on fully flashable PSPs?

    EDIT: Well, using 6.20 without problems. PSN and all my PSP/PS1 games working without issues, nice!

    When I was playing with 6.20 I noticed that the CWCheat would keep codes enabled even when toggled off, any fix for this?

    Edit: System settings and Theme settings make the PSP freeze and turn off, what the hell

    That's only if you also get a bunch of optional plugins. For example, the latest version (1.971 OFW in this case) has an empty ME631 folder. In fact, at this point I'm betting there would be lesser and more infrequent updates in the future. The tool is almost perfect, for now. Of course, I've already tested the patcher on my non-working game to no avail, and that's why I'm glad Pro B4 was released.

    Isn't the main concern the addition of support for new keys?
