    i updated my phat psp running on 5.00 M33-6 directly to 5.50Gen-D. Now XMBShell v1.00 doesnt support 5.50. Can i request an updated version to this amazingly cool homebrew? Currently im using IR Shell but the plugins dont extract “rz” files.

      Erm, can someone help me please. I have just updated to GEN-D and MotorStorm isn’t even working for me. Does anyone know what that could be? I believe I don’t have to update to GEN-D2 to just play it, do I
      ? I just get an error “The game could not be started” when I open it. I am now trying Gran Turismo, another 5.55+ game. I’ll edit this post when I’ve found out if that works.

  • Ivarveldscholte

    Apparently I replied on someone else his post.. Sorry for that, I’m kinda new on this website. I haven’t figured out how to delete it, lol. Anyway, Gran Turismo can not be started either. What am I doing wrong?

    • skylinekid17

      well since it didnt work for me either i downgraded using pandora battery and magic memory stick. i installed 5.50gen-a because 5.50gen-d/d2 gave me a bit of trouble and gran turismo indeed didnt run. so i went back to using “gamesdecrypterz v4″ and “umdgen v4″ i used this to decrypt the eboot.bin. go on youtube and just type in “how to decrypt psp games” it only takes about 5mins for me to get the game up and running. if you have an external hardrive copy the decrypted game into it and delete it from your computer. i also decrypted assines creed bloodlines and it works great on 5.50gen-a. just for fun i will downgrade back to 5.00m33-6 and test if assines creed works. i know that gran turismo (decrypted) worked on 5.00m33-6. i “hear” that m33 is coming back but as of now that info isnt official.

  • Ivarveldscholte

    Okay now I just found out my other games don’t work anymore either. Yup, well done. I sure hope someone knows how to fix this? At my system settings it just tells me that I’m on 5.50 GEN-D (Full), but apparently I’m not. I can’t even run ISO’s from 3 years ago anymore, lol. Help?

    • psxcowiteboy

      You need to bring up VSH menu by pressing select and switch your driver to either the M33 driver no UMD or the Sony NP9660 driver… at least thats what it sounds like.

      • Ivarveldscholte

        Well Gran Turismo still doesn’t work, but I do get the screen with “6.00 enabled :)” or something like that. My older games work again. Thanks :)

      • skylinekid17

        no it still doesnt work. if you really want to play the game use “gamesdecrypterz v4″ and “umdgen v4″ if you go up i posted what i did to resolve this. im no longer on 5.50gen-d because along with my 5.50+ games not being able to work, added this my need for speed games cant go online. so i resorted to 5.50gen-a and i decrypted gran turismo. go on youtube everything is there. i myself might make some videos. but i need a better camera lol

      • tangishere2

        I got a psp 2000 model and my VSH menu won’t come up. Do you know what’s up with that?

  • magorem

    Hello!! guys, im happy that you work so hard and gives us all this for free. I have some questions that may help you further. Every worked fine on GEN D2 but the music plugin doesnt work on the game, just on VSH, i loved the music plugin because i played online and listened music at the same time. Also i can t play gran turismo when i have custom theme such as cxmb but just happens when i have the plugg in activated so if i want to play i need to un plug it xD. (the gran turismo game was parched already so i played it on gen b2 without unpluggin the cxmb ). Just another thing, changing the iso speed DID NOT on gen c or gen d, but on gen d2 i think is working but may be not at 100%. thx xD we need a lot of things right? xD thanks for everything. one question,,,, is there a way to get back to gen b2 if im on gen d2? just untill you guys make gen d3. i tried to re-install gen b2 and it worked but the music pluggin did not worked too!!!!! and the system told me that it is gen b full( really gen b2 i know) but i tried every thing, i changed the mmusic pluggin already 3 times and nothing!!!!!! thx that is all i promise……………………………..

    how to update my psp from m33 to gend2

    • skylinekid17

      yo cant updated directly to 5.50 gen-d2. you have to update to 5.50gen-d first but its up to you.

  • The_Fool

    I have a problem. I have 5.50 OFW installed. But when I try to install the 5.50 GEN-d (i copied the “update” file under the directry /PSP/GAME), it says “this game cannot be installed. The data is corrupted” . Do you have any solutions for this situation?

    • skylinekid17

      u need custom firmware!!

  • The_Fool

    I have a problem. I have 5.50 OFW installed. But when I try to install the 5.50 GEN-d (i copied the “update” file under the directry /PSP/GAME), it says “this game cannot be installed. The data is corrupted” . Do you have any solutions for this situation?
    I made a research and there wasnt a certain solution beside a downgrade. ? I’m really in need of an idea

  • skylinekid17

    hey gran turismo dont work on 5.50 Gen D-2. I went back to 5.50 Gen-B and it works fine. Why is that a problem on D-2? I think its because I decrypted the Eboot that it triggers a failure in processing while I was on D-2. Does anyone have a solution? For now I’m going to copy the UMD of Gran Turismo using PSP Tweaker. I guess its worth a shot. I hope it works since the Eboot is patched and 5.50 Gen D-2 is capable of playing/running 5.xx to 6.xx games without decryption. wish me luck!

  • foxdie

    Running GEN D-2. So far so good… until… the new METAL GEAR SOLID PEACE WALKER DEMO. The original TGS demo works fine, but the recently released demo on the Peace Walker website and PSN doesn’t work. After attempting to load it up i get the “The game could not be started (80020148)” msg. Thoughts or solutions anyone?

  • jamarr_69

    i’m new here……..
    can i update my psp 2000 5.0 m33-6 to gen d full?
    without the pandora……and i have also another psp 3.7 m33……..can i use this 5.50 gen d update?????

    pls help meeeeeeeee..not sure where to start….

    • psxcowiteboy

      Your slim with 5.00 m33 can easily be upgraded to GEN i would suggest upgrading to 5.50 GEN B first then upgrading to 5.50 GEN D then putting the D2 patch in. your other psp has to be upgraded to 5.00 m33 first 3.7 is too low to use the updater but once you get to 5.00 then simply follow the steps from your other psp. All the updates you need you can find here on pspslimhacks.

  • TheKeiron

    I gather from the comments this won’t work on psp 3000 right? or will it? Also is there anything we can do to try and help with making CFW work on later OFW’s of the psp 3000? Like look for exploits?
