    Talking to a friend about being his ready hacked PSP-1000 but it hasn't been updated in a while and I know that more firmwares have come out since it had its CFW installed. He says its on v3.5 at the moment (likely M33) so...

    1. Which CFW is the best GEN or M33?

    2. Can I just run the latest FW installer for the chosen one or do I need to update sequentially?

    You could get Gen cfw and go strait to 5.50 GEN-d then D2

    1.Probably GEN since M33 is outdated

    2.Yes you can but he first needs to update to 3.71 M33 to use this

    So I need to flash it to 3.71 M33 then use the XGEN updater to install v5.5 Gen-B2 and from there update to 5.5 gen-d?
    I may need some help with the file structure as well as I know that PSPs have to have it in a game folder or something like that.

    you don't need to go on GEN B2 to go onto GEN D, you only need to go onto GEN B2 if your already on GEN B

    GEN if you want updates.
    M33 if you want more stable homebrew support.

    Gen - no patching the latest games to play them, laggy with some .cso files

    M33 - 5.00m33-6 has the speed up memory stick access, if you have a lot of .cso games than this is needed to prevent the lagging

    I tried GenD2 but went back to M33 due to the lagging, however D3 is due on 15/12 and hints are that they will include the memory speed up

    I'll likely be using for homebrew until I get a bigger memory stick (16gb should hold a few games) so what's GEN like on the SNES emulator?

    I got two PSPs, one with Gen and one with M33... For me there's no difference between the two other than having to patch games for M33. If that sounds like a hassle go with Gen
