    Smile Are there any problems after changing from m33 to Gen-b?

    I was considering upgrading my firmware to Gen's series, but I heard from my bro that some saved games data eg. Dissidia, would not work after changing the firmware. Is this true?

    it depends

    i did a 5.00 m33-6 update to 5.50 gen-a
    my UMD USA Dissidia save still worked

    but
    4.01 m33 to 5.50 gen-b2
    save may not work

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    The reason why savedata won't work is because of the fact that you played a game under the firmware requirement. (Like way too low) As you upgrade, the data gets corrupted and only playable on the firmware that you started it on. The only way to fix this is to start a new game.

    Other than that, and sometimes the vshMenu messing up, GEN runs just fine for me. Been running 5.50 GEN since it was released.

    Thx for the quick reply.

    My version is currently 5.00M33-3 so does that fall under similar category as your 5.00M33-6?

    To Demonchild:

    Hmm does that applies for the next few firmware upgrades that will be coming soon? Kinda hard to let go my save data, but there is a need to change this firmware as seen by the growing number of games relying on this.

    Yes Yuki, the savedata thing applies to all firmwares.

    if you are far or beat a game, pspbrew has a savedata database. just delete your old and download a new one if yours wont load. personally i didnt have this problem though.
