    I have a PSP that uses 3.30 OE-A and I was curious as to which custom firmware would be the best to update to. I want to play Dissidia, but I'm unsure on if my PSP's current firmware could actually play it (I just bought a new memory card to put it on, but I might be going to another store and I wanted to see if they were cheaper there before I opened it up). Is there any current firmware that can play most of the popular games?

    The latest CFW is 5.50 Gen-D3, but some people like 5.00 M33-6.

    Thanks to me, she's already using 5.50 GEN-D3. Actually, today I also gave my friend's brother in law 5.50 GEN-D3 over 5.00 M33-6 because he was sick of not being able to play the new games. He didn't want to go through a clusterfuck of decrypting them, etc, so I hooked him up too. [​IMG]

    Yup sorry for not editing, I'm tired from doing daycare. Now that I'm set up I just need to take the case off and use some dust-off since I forgot to do it when I put my PSP cover back on and the dust is driving me up the wall XD!

    Chill M33 fanboy no need to go hyper

    Seeing as how the OP has already gotten a new firmware this thread can be locked before it turns into a M33 vs GEN when this guy responds

    I'm no fanboy and take that as an insult if you're saying i am. Describing

    1. Extract eboot.bin with UMDGen
    2. Patch with EDecrypt
    3. Replace eboot.bin

    ...as a clusterfuck is just a massive joke though. Both firmwares have advantages, and one is not clearly superior to the other.

    Why did you recite Pi (not very well either) and give the formula for the area of a circle?

    Lock, please! The OP has been helped with her problem, and now it's just turned into a mass argument among the lurking children.

    m33 is outdated so the m33 fanboys needs to move on already.

    I used to use m33 until it became locked out of the psn store (plugins can fix this) so i updated to gen. Everyone says gen is really buggy but exactly like m33, I've never found a bug. I personally use gen as it's the latest, also just in case i get a new game that would require countless patches oherwise.

    all new games need patching,
    learn to patch - it's easy and you can strip out the junk & save space on your stick in the process.
