    1.Yes.
    2.No.
    3.Yes, it's buggy as hell.
    4.No.

    IMHO, you should stay with M33.

    It really depends what you want, M33 is always a stable firmware and many people would choose this over GEN. A while back i wanted to go on resistance online but couldn't as sony blocked m33 access to psn. I decided to take a leap and upgraded it to 5.50 gen a then to u3r (i think that's how it's spelt) and to be honest apart from a few plugins won't work and now i can access the psn i don't find much different. If you want the psn then upgrade to gen, if you want stability for your plugins then keep to m33. All of my games that i've backed up (iso), my psx games and my homebrew run without any problem. Sure you need to clock your game speed for gta:lcs but you did for m33 too.

    and if you don't like it you can always go back to m33 with Hellcat's recovery flasher.

    I'm as bad as anyone for warding people off non M33 firmwares but just saying "It's buggy" about GEN isn't really giving anyone any info. Actual specific issues of anything bar a few plugin problems seem rarely reported.

    I've tried 5.50 Gen twice actually, the first time i tried A and then switched back for some reson and then when they released B i upgraded to that. I did this as i forgot why i had switched back to M33 and now i still can't remember why i even switched from Gen-B.
    Oh, could have been speed issues i think, 5.50 Gen doesn't have the built-in speedup feature to my knwoledge, very useful...

    From what i've read no, GEN doesn't have the speed boost feature....as if the Millisecond differences were really that noticeable in the first place. THis is about the only concrete complaint i've seen levelled at GEN besides Plugin support. Calling something buggy is just not enough....although i'm not moving from 5.00M33-6!

    I said it is buggy 'cause it WAS buggy to me. The games just crashed any time and the internet browser was VERY MUCH buggy. Anyway, can't you play newer games if you edit version.txt?

    Yes but you didn't explain which is the point i was making....just saying it's buggy could mean anything.

    And no, GEN 5.50-B still has a better compatibility with newer releases the 5.00M33-6, although it too has been foiled by the latest releases, which don't just check a line of text but verify that the correct firmware is in use.

    Thanks xist for showing some common sence. I hate how people bash a perfectly good cfw like GEN, just because DaRk_AleX didn't make it. I posted this (quoted below) in another forum, as we where having this same discussion:

    Hope that someone finds that info useful [​IMG]

    GEN fails to read my MP4 videos. Twice. I converted them, and they show up as 'Unsupported Data'.

    I didn't know it was the firmware, and I was getting annoyed at the lag in FIFA 09 (my custom songs lagged when loading stuff), so I downgraded to 5.00 M33-6. Everything just works, videos and no lag whatsoever.

    It's just like Mac vs Windows if you look at the analogy. [​IMG]

    Windows = GEN, has bugs, and it's crappy. Still solid, though, and has better support (just like Windows. e.g. PS Store access)

    M33 = Mac. Works out-of-the-box, has cooler features, and it's faster.

    Do cooler features include:

    1) no online play for PSP games
    2) no remote play with PS3
    3) no access to Playstation Store ???

    5.00 M33 has been crippled in my opinion.
    Alek of dark-alex.org has already stated there will be no 5.50 M33, so if you care about online capabilities - GEN is your only choice for PSP custom firmware.

    By the way: .MP4 vids work fine on my PSP, and I'm on 5.50 GEN-B FULL [​IMG]

    GEN all the way.


    DAX has gave up on us.

    he is tired of wasting his life on CFW and only getting "thank you's" online...the incentive is gone.

    GEN can acess the store

    GEN can play Evangelon (which is a 5.55 required game) hopefulyl GI JOE and Armored Core 3 will be next

    they WILL update (recovery menu says "M33 network update == NOT YET.)

    I say if thre will be a savior in the PSP scene. I'd go with GEN. M33 is soooo 2008...literally...the last 5.00 M33 was in 2000-FUCKING-8

    but come to think about it...

    if 5.55 is cracked....the "lucritive" PSP games will be "delayed" and sony will give some bullshit excuse about "making it better"...5.60 Comes out with new security??...BOOM. they have a release data again.



    THIS IS WHY GRAN TOURISMO PSP WAS PUSHED BACK FOR 2 FUCKING YEARS. because they couldn't "secure" it..it would be released. it would be bought. it would be mass downloaded. like the fate of any other ordinary psp game.

    sony is fuckin greedy and pushed it back every end of the fuckin year because they want ALL TEH MONEYZ for this game...and every other single "lucrative" PSP Game coming out now.

    now they have a new "toy" to stop CFW users. NOW THEY RELEASE IT AFTER 2 FUCKIN YEARS AND HYPE...Maybe this is Why Oblivion PSP was stopped. I wouldn't be surprised if it "resurfaced" this year [​IMG]
    (my Intel said they WERE WORKING ON IT. it was even going to be a 2 disk UMD!)

    BLAME THE GODDAMN MOTHER FUCKIN' (CURSED BY GOD HIMSELF) PSP GO.



    If GEN can't save us.

    SONY WINS

    We will HAVE to purchase their overpriced (CFW protected) $40 bucks.

    its strange that GI JOE is 40 bucks..

    while G-Force came out too and its only 30-20 (dont remember)

    sony knows what they got. and they KNOW you will PAY For it.

    AND KNOWING. IS HALF THE BATTLE.

    Yo Joe.

    Yeah, been wondering about this, too.
    I'm guessing sony and Big N have been having FW classes together, why do they bother when they KNOW they will always
    have people buying their overpriced crap anyway.?

    cause they want EVERYONE to buy their OVERPRiCED SHiT

    INCLUDING CFW PiRATES.

    I hope that satan posses everyone who gets even 6 feet to a PSP GO to refuse to buy one..

    that way...

    1. the fad dies
    2.we can get our fuckin lives back
    3. prolong the 2000/3000 life
    4.sony starts from the drawing board
    5. "we" win. "they" lose

    JOIN THE CAMPAIGN!


    SAY NO TO THE PSP GO!

    PS: Omega_2...DO i...KNOW you somewhere? (im "Stanley?"

    It's just a fuckin' console. What harm can it do?

    Don't get so worked up about it. That stupid thing will fail. It's fugly, and only serves for Sony to make more money.

    PSP 1000/2000 ftw.

    (No, the 3k is shit)
