    my brother's psp says 4.01 m33-2?

    then yesterday i asked in the shoutbox how would i upgrade and i read something about "GEN"?

    i think its about time to upgrade firmware, (my cousin told me to download blah then blah then blah @_@ cant remember) but then i see a whole long list of firmwares on another site..

    can anyone explain?

    the latest M33 firmware(possibly last)is 5.00 M33-6,to play newer games you would have to decrypt games.GEN is recently becoming popular,it automatically decrypts games,latest is 5.50 GEN D3.Personally i would go M33-6,and just decrypt games,since GEN doesn't have proper homebrew support right now,and there's nothing else interesting about it right now

    GEN-D3 http://dl.qj.net/psp/homebrew-applications...n-d3-final.html

    Just grab the whole thing. Put the 550.pbp on the root and the update folder in ms0:/PSP/GAME

    Run the update and install GEN-D3. Voila you have upgraded to GEN-D3. Oh if you have a custom theme remember to change it to the classic theme first.

    use hellcat flasher and flash it to 5.00m33 and use a 5.00m33-6 update patch on it.

    Erm, no.


    Because you have firmware higher then 4.00, you can go to GEN D3 or GEN D (then GEN D2)
    Just put the update folder in PSP/GAME
    and then the 550.PBP on the root.

    Now you need to patch some games irrespective of firmware, what's the point of GEN? May as well use 5.00M33-6....

    Because GEN is a lot less work than M33 still.

    No it's not, especially if you download your games already decrypted like I do.
