    Hello everybody,

    Zecoxao just reported on twitter that is possible to backport games from 6.72 to 5.05
    So, I would recommend staying on 5.05


    Enjoy!

    -----------

    UPDATE:

    There seems to be a script to do this (so people who are not really familiar with this kind of stuff can do it more easly)

    Thanks to @Spzjulien for the info


    -----------

    EDIT:

    Can't share any links, even in PM
    Sorry guys
    Just try to find these stuff yourself on Google
    Good luck

    Nah. I prefer to keep 6.72 backup clean. I will wait a little bit longer.

    it's the same method that was used two years ago to play (backport) 5.05 games on 4.xx fw, so I guess it will also probably work in the future fws
    some latest games can be BACKPORTED to 6.72 soon ;)

    If needed I'll provide some "noob friendly" guide step by step
    Using the script of course, it's much easier
    I read a line of two (out of curiosity), but it's out of my field

    I am attempting to backport a 6.72 game to 5.05 myself, but having some difficulties. Can anyone help out?
    1- "downgrade_elf.py" needs elf file as input argument. After unpacking the pkg file, I do not see any elf file? Is there any other step that is needed to get the elf file?
    2- "downgrade_sfo.py" needs .sfo file. The only .sfo file in the extracted game is "param.sfo". After passing it to the script I get "error: invalid sfo file format"

    Any hint, help, link is appreciated.

    Hope somebody can help you out
    I guess the script hasn't been "re-written" to backport 6.72 to 5.05 (but just 5.05 to 4.74)
    Still, as soon as I get my hands on something myself, I'll let you know
