Custom Firmware 6.XX GEN-A, some answers from Team GEN
Parlez-vous français, non monsieur….. Thats about as far as my French goes. But judging from the loose and I mean “loose” translation Google translate provides, PSPGEN have posted some answers as to why no Custom Firmware 6.10 has been released yet. And further yet, the issues that have arisen when working on a new custom Firmware build.
The step up from 5.XX to 6.XX firmware isn’t as straight forward as one would think. Its not just a new digital comic reader application or the SenseMe music application. No, Sony once again changed the way the firmware works and it may require that Eboots and modules etc will have to be rewritten for kernels 6.xx much like the move from 1.50 to 3.71+ etc (I’m sure you remember that..) What the Team GEN are basically saying is this.. It might not be worth it, taking into account all the work involved to get a working CFW 6.10 or 6.20. Just for those two new applications, firmware 6.20 games don’t run either. Ok, ok I hear you asking – what about the demos and games that require 6.20 Firmware. I guess we might have to wait for another work around. (Game decrypter for 6.20 anyone?)
And before you all start screaming for Dark-AleX to come and be the savor off save the day, think again. I doubt he will ever return. So better not to get your hopes up. I’m not …
So some feedback on Custom Firmware 6.10, straight from he horses mouth. Oh and they have a working beta it seems. But it cannot run much and Team GEN haven’t confirmed or denied its possible future release.
P.S If your a native French speaker, please drop us a comment if I missed any valid points.

This post also mentions 5.50 GEN-D3 and 5.03 GEN-C are coming….
So why bother since 5.50GEN-D2 (5.03HEN-B) already provides the majority of what you can expect from a Custom Firmware and the 5.50GEN-D3 (5.03HEN-C), which arrival will be announced in a few hours, will still more things.
