Alright so i have my psp in front of me now... it has m33 3.90 on it. and I have TA-088 v1 motherboard. From what I understand i can put gen-d3 on it right?
well if its then yes you can
Im sure he already figured this out as this thread is well over a month old now..
If he has m33 3.90 FW on the PSP now there is no need for any other homebrew tools other then the Gen CFW..
Its pointless to stay with M33 now days as patching games is a bitch and 6.XX will be out soon via Gen's CFW (just give it a few months)..
A note from Team Gen was stated that a release of CFW 6.xx will be out..
However due to issues as we have had with 1.5 to 3.xx CFW ~ All homebrew apps will have to be updated as well..
That is the main reason why Team Gen has not updated past 5.50 FW as many homebrew coders find it to be harder to dycrypt there software to work with 6.xx FW..
Anyways Im runnin off topic..
Crush just get the current Gen release and add it to your PSP-Game folder..
From there do the update..
Nothing else is needed in terms of any other homebrew to install any updated CFW to your PSP..
It has been worked around and th safest way is to go the Hellcats route, it will correctly install GEN for you.
I just got a new PSP2000 (DaxterLtdEd) and my PHAT has had CFW 5.00 m33-6 on it for well over a year now (I don't update often =/) so when I went to mod my new Slim I checked out the new CFW's. Lame. The new GEN CFW's are cool and all but I *LOVED* my 1.50 kernel. I read about a certain program that could run older emus but so far a lot of the emus are already confusing to navigate through not to mention having to use a program to boot it up! I think it's safe to say that Dark Alex will be sincerely missed. However, much kudos to pspgen for cracking the 3000's, I've been waiting forever!!! Still... why did they stop the kernel use? And did the 2000 series even need a kernel?
the psp-2000 does not have native support for the 1.50 kernel. there have been rumors of an add-on 1.50 kernel for psp slims w/3.51-5.00 M33 and there is such an add-on. the add-on is used to run "older homebrew apps and games" but most of them crash.
i think that "Leda" is the software loader used to boot older homebrew on slims but it may only work with M33 and not with GEN cfw. i tried it once on my slim when i had 5.00 M33-6 and it was very buggy and laggy. i had to reflash my psp to fix it.
there are a good number of emus that work with 5.50 GEN-D3 (nester-NES, PCE-turbo graphx 16, emu master-nes/sega master system/game gear/, gpSP-gameboy advance). you just have to look and try out.
i definitely miss DAX because he's was the one who first hacked & reversed the PSP ofw and we have cfw thanks to him. i personally think that DAX has finally retired (he hasn't developed anything new and he pulled down his website). M33 cfw is the most stable cfw that i have ever had (more stable than GEN).
yet i'm a fan of team GEN and i support them 100%. yeah i already know that GEN cfw is somewhat buggy, not very stable, and is somewhat incompatible with older homebrew. well you know what, "get over it!" :D there is now enough compatible homebrew being made, GEN isn't too buggy to set aside, and M33 will not launch newer games requiring 5.55-6.30 ofw like GEN can.
sometimes you just have to move on with the future.
Well I got those emus to work on my Slim and didn't even realize it. Sadly a lot of the apps listed on psp-hacks.com don't have compatibility without the 1.50 kernel. I've searched and found some places where people have tried to make some apps as compatible as possible with 5.00 m33 but a good majority of them fail. I really think if the creators of those apps tweaked them a little bit it'd be cool because using my PSP as a remote would be sweet along with a calendar app. :rolleyes: Oh I can dream.
you can buy a used psp-1000 and run 1.50 homebrew with M33 or just start using newer brew with your slim on M33 or Gen.
