    NEW CFW : 6.20 MAD-001



    Cant provide Source, cant provide links. Against the rules. But yeah, looks like the guy was for real about his 6.20 MAD. No homebrew is a bummer, but hey, a more stable version is coming in 2 days. This is just a beginning and IS PREMATURE. It was leaked from a closed betatester after the japanese blog got literally raped with hateful comments, writing it off as a huge FAKE. I will update this thread with all information I find.

    Reportedly has a lot more issues on PSP Phat, I counsel against using this firmware. It's not work the risk. Especially you 3000 users.

    DONT RISK IT. I WILL UPDATE THIS POST WHEN A STABLE VERSION IS RELEASED (IF EVER).



    I merely post this for DISCUSSION.

    DO NOT TRY TO USE THIS FIRMWARE YET!!! BE WARNED, IF YOU HAVE A 3000 SERIES PSP YOUR PSP WILL BE IRREPARABLY BRICKED.



    EDIT: I HAVE PERSONALLY TESTED GOD EATER ON MAD-002 TEST TO BE WORKING BUT FREEZING IF YOU TRY TO SAVE.



    The Firmware is very buggy and I am in the process of testing other games as I write this. Homebew DOES NOT WORK AT ALL.



    DETAILS ON INSTALL:

    I installed MAD TEST-002 on top of GEN-D2. Make sure you have OFW 6.20 and the Eboot in the right places. It will give you corrupt error several times, I tried dozens of times and it eventually froze, then got through. There are many versions circulating the internet, some are TEST 002 and some are TEST 001. There is no labeling difference between the two. There are many many problems with this firmware. Firstly, after a game crashes, you NEED a pandora to fix. Other games start but crash within a few seconds, only god eater works - but as I said it freezes if you save and you need a pandora back to GEN D2. Setting system language to Japanese also may help. Another thing, the region of the console may affect the installation. Mine is an Australian retail console.

    I SAY AGAIN, DO NOT TRY TO INSTALL THIS FIRMWARE.

    This may be a hoax, but the fact that GodEater starts is still some hope. Its pathetic in every other regard, but this proves that GodEater is possible on CFW. I don't know any technical things. I think the blog was update today and the author claims the log.txt was a joke by the person who actually leaked the test. I don't know for sure, Google translate is very inaccurate. KH:BBS I couldn't test yet, but the source claimed it to be working.



    13/02/10 UPDATE:

    A new image. Doesn't really prove anything.

    [​IMG]



    >He gave us the "DLkey" for tomorrow. It is "23"

    >Something about a video proving GodEater and KH:BBS on youtube?(??)

    >Some guy posted a link (Japanese) and I think he say's its working. Japanese does not translate so well with Google.


    Anyway, 4 o'clock tomorrow Japan time everything will be revealed. I say that he isn't going post anything, or just post that it was a joke. Do not get excited guys, there is no way he could fix all the bugs in the FW in 2 days.

    So you mean I can trade my working PSP firmware that plays tons of awesome stuff like SNES and SEGA for a half finished one that is full of bugs and only plays some crappy Disney game I don't care about and isn't even in english? WOW WHERE DO I SIGN UP?

    This is a test firmware that is still beta released early to prove to the people that don't believe it was real. Its premature, but it works KH:BBS and GodEater. So I'm not saying get it. I'm saying discuss it.

    you realize you need a pandora, hen or cfw to install this right?
    if you are truly "stuck" on ofw 6.20 then this is not usable for you..

    Luke is right, BUT there were 2 save game exploits discovered within this week and the possibility of a new HEN for 6.20 is not impossible. But Luke is right, this is for people already on CFW.

    Definitely proves the doubters wrong, and I do anticipate the final release. Regardless, as I don't have either game yet, I'll stay on GEN unless I hear very, very positive things about it.

    Just as an extra reminder: People, watch out if you're looking for this. While one could be in the works (*I* don't know for sure, but i'm not disproving it [​IMG]) this early release WILL NOT WORK for you, and could be someone using this news for malicious purposes.

    I'm not saying this is bad or good, i'm just reminding that this is EARLY. Be patient.

    (and i can't wait to try out BBS and god eater as soon as this is fully out. Could be a very happy valentine's day! ...and for that whole "love" thing too... Shit, hope Wife® doesn't read this >_>)

    I really wanna play Birth by Sleep and God eater so I might update to this, (When the full release is out) I take it this means all current games are playable now?
    Also, ChickHEN R3 was confirmed a while back, dunno if it will work on 6.20 though.
    I suppose I choose to get a PSP at the right time, ordered my fat a few hours ago.

    I don't suppose PSN works on this, even just so much as the store? Probably not high on the list of priorities for the dev(s), just wondering.

    probably not since we would need a full cfw on the 3000's before a psp go cfw is even thought about
    and i heard chickhen r3 was canceled because of cfw loaders that use it and the maker of chickhen is anti-piracy (mind you i don't know how true this is(it's like gossip from the corner))
