    Which would be better Im thinking upgrading cfw to pro-b 6.35 or there are more much stable version
    because I like to have access to psn store which is now not availble in Gen-d3 even with plugins ( correct me if Im wrong )

    could anyone post me some links or post the instructions on how to change cfw ( I dont like to get bricked ) I dont have tools to unbrick if it happens (like the pandora battery)

    because I read to other sites that gen is quite old and it needs patching in almost all latest games that recently released

    6.20 PRO-B5 has the same features as the 6.35 version, with the added ability to be permanently installed like the 5.50 CFW. Yes it still has PSN access (but the PSN is down right now).

    The 6.x firmwares lack some plugin, homebrew, and PSX compatibility. Is your focus just PSP games?

    PSX = Playstation. The 6.x firmwares have lessened PSX compatibility because they can't use something like POPSloader yet.

    List of PSX games working (and not working).

    If your titles are working, you should just update to 6.20 PRO-5.

    I don't think there's a difference except that 6.20 has a perma patch (can uninstall perma yourself too though)

    Logically 6.20 and 6.35 may have differing PSX compatibility. Then again they may not have if they were just security updates.

    Theres a tool where you can downgrade 6.35 to 6.20. Yeah, the dudes here are right. Go with pro. You can't go wrong there

    Did lemski said that he would stay with gen (5.50), cause that's what I understood from his last post.
    If I'm getting something wrong from this discussion, you're more than welcomed to explain it to me.

    The thing is PSN is down right now, so he may have not known it would work on 6.x if he tried and couldn't connect.

    Update if you only play PSP games.
    If you play alot of PSX gamse or using homebrews, i recommed that you stay at that firmware.
