    Are we screwed since DA quit? And is GEN capable of making any updates to the M33? [​IMG]

    when did DA quit

    a m33 update will ONLY happen when something BIG is added by Sony to the FW
    so maybe 6.00 will get a M33
    5.01-5.55, are just small updates
    nothing really that big was added to the FW
    so CFW is not need

    some game need 5.55 so update to 5.55 then Pandora back, or use test m33
    and some games need 5.50 , use Gen, then then Pandora(of hellcat's recovery flasher) back, or use test m33

    and you DO know that
    CFW is for HOMEBREW, NOT ISOs

    so if to need to play a new game that CANT run on m33, update play the game, and use Pandora to go back to m33

    My PSP GoW TA-088v2 can be pandora? Im not a fan of PSP games so it's not an issue. I still need an update on one game but im playing it via patch.

    I don't know when DA quit but I have been reading all over the place that he has quit again. This time sony is paying him supposedly like 2 million dollars.

    @themuddaload

    GoW PSP are hackable. It's that, it can be pandora?

    Chris...you're running a flashed firmware (5.00M33-6)...of course it can utilise a Pandora battery!

    oh. im still confused about that because in the pandora-free chickhen method, it says "TA-088v2 - PANDORA = NOT"

    Ignore me for the time being

    Back to the topic, then

    Well that's incorrect...the only non Pandora receptive Mobo's are the TA-088v3 and TA-090v2.

    No.....the TA-090v1 which appeared in some PSP 2000's is essentially the same as the TA-088v1 and v2.

    regarding GEN and M33, are they interchangable? I mean, can we use GEN on top of M33 and vice versa (for TA-88v2 below)? If DA really quit, then I have no choice but to switch to GEN (as long as it's permanent)

    back to topic, guys, so we dont get banned or something

    why is everyone thinking DA quit or m33 is dead? its starting to annoy me with all these is m33 dead topics and where's DA gone?..... eesh if DA wants to continue with producing m33 cfw then he will if he doesn't that's his choice, naturally we'd all love him to continue as he's helped alot of people with his current verions of m33 cfw, and you never know someone else might pick up where DA left off naturally it won't be the same without DA's mind behind it all but its still something. either way the official firmware updates weren't anything major so there really is no need to update the cfw. just because some games need updated firmware to work doesn't mean a new cfw version needs to be created it would be nice yes but maybe there is a simple work around nobodies thought of yet, we'll just have to wait and see.

    im starting to get that GEN-B 5.50 update right now just to see if IDOLM@STER will work unpatched. If someone can confirm it for me, I'll stick with the pacthed version and will wait for DA to update the M33

    Ok then if we don't need an updated Cfw then how do we play the games that need 5.55 Firmware? Like tales of Vs and The upcoming Dissidia?

    Dissidia is STILL unknown. it may need just 5.50 . (like madden 10)
    it may even run on 5.00 m33-6


    as for tales of Vs,
    BUY IT
    update to 5.55, with the update on the UMD
    use Pandora to go back to CFW

    now if you have 5.03 CFWs (3000s and 2000s with Ta088v3+ MB) your stuck and cant play them ,yet, if ever


    the M33 CFW will NOT be update just to play ISOs
