    Getting a: Game could not be started (80020321) error? Do this:
    Turn off you PSP, turn it on while holding the R button down, this will put you into the recovery settings . Turn the VSH on, exit it. Press select on the PSP menu, change the driver to M33 or Sony. Reboot, games should now work.

    I am currently on firmware 5.50GEN B..do I have to upgrade to anything before I install this? I was reading something about having to upgrade to 5.50GEN B-2 before I upgrade to the newest firmware, if I have to do that..where do I get B2 from? Thanks

    Search for GEN-B2 on Google. You'll find it.

    I have it installed, it didn't brick me but I turned my battery into a Pandora just in case. ^^ Not used it for long enough yet.

    maybe because they were patched? try a clean iso, also check the recovery settings are not reset

    yeah I went into the recovery settings and changed it to m33 driver..now it works fine..but now before each game, I get this little message saying that the drivers are enabled..is that Ok or is there a way to change that so I dont see it before the game starts

    well i updated to gen-D

    thats odd, my GTA:VCS autobooted fine by default for me...

    oh, and the backlight was retarded on gen-C for me, it always switched brightnesses when you switched between xmb and a game, rather annoying when i wanted it at lowest setting... thats fixed for me in -D

    my isos work fine, ive tried fieldrunners and gran turismo so far, i eboot patched it, so that may or may not mean anything...

    id recommend everyone on -C to upgrade to -D, if you dont have a pandora it may be best to stick with -B2 at the moment though.

    The only major bug I have heard of is that Wifi connections in homebrew don't work if you use WPA encryption. Other than that, the only other issues I have heard of are the usual ones (no ms speedup unless you use fatmsmod, no 1.5 compatability (LEDA didn't work on B2, not sure about D), and it's a new fimware so probably best to wait until the first update/service pack).

    it's really weird, I can't boot UMD games only but the UMD drive isn't dead. I went back to B2 just to test and it was fine, then D again, same thing. I got no plugins either or custom anything.

    CAN GEN D WORK ON PSP 3K PLZZZZZZZZ?

    lol. Has anyone noticed the msg when you start up an unpatched game?
    It says something about 5.55 and 6.XX games and a link to there website.
    GEN D works perfectly for me, so did GEN C.

    Proud to be Portuguese but live in USA.. for now.
    It works fine to me without any problem but one thing I found a bug:

    When you start Megaman 8.. After Capcom then fmv show up and it just skip to the title screen right away but ingame works okay... Bug ? It should be because it was fine on 5.00 M33-6 but GEN-D (FULL) the fmv just skip.
