Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-C Released.

GENyUS and PSPGEN have released Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-C. While nothing is new in this custom firmware from Sony. 5.50 GEN-C update is a substantial move forward. As it now lets users play back up UMD’s that require firmware 5.55 or 6.00 without patching the eboot.

So you can save yourself a few steps in playing 5.55+ games. No more extracting the games eboot, using game decrypter to patch the eboot. Then finally re-building the ISO. None of that is needed anymore, thanks to GENyUS. So delete that Game Decrypter v4 from your hard-drive as you don’t need it anymore. At least for firmware 5.55, 6.00 and 6.10 games.

Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-C issues, lock ups and games not running:

Ok so this isn’t PSPGen’s best release its full of bugs…. so expect an update soon. In the next few days I would think. Here are some tips to get around the ISO/ CSO lock ups and the game could not be started error (8002013C). Try using the M33 ISO driver, in the VSH menu or recovery menu set your UMD ISO mode to M33 driver. That should help. See the below video.

    you know, im almost tempted to realease “CFW” that semi-bricks everyones PSP just because when it happens, it seems that everyone becomes a bumbling idiot, and cant even TRY to fix their own PSP… ok, not EVERYONE, but about 95% of people on this site have bitched about not being able to fix it, when there was a VERY simple option. and those of you who full bricked, im sorry, and im also assuming you dont have a pandora on hand, so im really sorry for you, but to the semi–brickers, you’re REALLY stupid if you didnt think to go to the recovery menu on your own. i mean, damn, hold down one button, and then go format your flash…. that was hard. i really think people who cant help themselves shouldnt get free things…

    I solve my problem and now playing GTA CHINATOWN WARS!!! In main menu of psp, hold “r” button and HOLD a long power button until turn off, still holdind “r” buttton and turn on your psp, this method you get the recovery menu screen. In the recovery menu, go to “configuration”, go to the 5th option and press “x” until you got m33 no umd, back and then, exit. Now you can play your isos and csos again!
