    m33 is the firmware to use,
    gen is slightly newer but bugged.

    prometheus is something you patch into the latest games to make them run.

    does that help?

    M33 is dated but still good.
    GEN is also dated but can play games without patching up to 6.00
    and prometheus is new firmware which can play all newer games without patching but been reports on older games not working.

    oh so m33 gen-c and prometheus are all CFW, lol i thought prometheus was an homebrew app for the gen-c which can help patch some games.

    is it safe to use prometheus? i have 3K and im afraid of bricking my psp [​IMG]

    i heard that prometheus needs gen-c installed first inorder for it to be applied, is it true? also if i installed prometheus can i should back to gen-c easily without doing the whole chickehn thing over again?

    PROMETHEUS is NOT firmware.
    it's a program you patch into the iso images.

    prowler - stop posting shit.

    Uhh, bro?
    5.50 Promethius

    Really, though, M33 has nothing that GEN-D3 doesn't.

    you mean other than 1.5 compatability, and much faster memory-stick access.

    Except the fact that M33 does not corrupt game saves.....if you count that sort of thing.

    Play God Of War on 3.90 M33 and save. Update to 5.00M33-6.

    CORRUPTION!!!

    *Note: This is a metaphorical example....

    Netherlands, currently
    If there was a way to install 5.50 Prometheus on 5.00 m33-6, people would do it.

    Not if it broke other stuff and only saved a bit of time patching games manually they wouldn't....

    There
    Preference.
    M33 has faster ms access,but you'll need to patch games that need 6.00 and up
    GEN provides on the fly patching for 6.00 games,but a bit slower(can be fixed),it has save corruption bug too.
    Promotheus(kernel) patches 6.20 games,based on GEN.But might not fix 6.00 games(not sure)

    I thought prometheus was a modded GEN firmware.

    it is, but it's also missing a few bits that handle some of the older problem-games.

    none of the firmwares will play the comming games without patching,
    the new 6.30 firmware has a new encryption key.

    a new decrypter just got released.
