    This has no effect on the 5.00 -> 5.50 conversion.

    You can set it to 3.71 and it will still convert a 5.00 CTF to a 5.50 CTF, as the current version of this app will only convert 5.00 CTF's to 5.50. It can't convert a 5.00 CTF to any other firmware other than 5.50, and it can't convert 3.71-5.03 CTF's to 5.50 either, so choosing a firmware version for the conversion process is of no importance.

    Future releases should have the ability to convert to other firmware versions.


    You only have to choose the firmware version to create a CTF from flash0 files, or to extract the contents of a CTF.

    If you want to extract the contents of a 3.71 CTF, you would select 3.71, and to create a CTF from 3.71 flash0 files, you would choose 3.71, and so on depending on the firmware version of the files.


    Even after the 5.00 -> 5.50 conversion, the 5.50 CTF should then be extracted to flash0 files, as the conversion is not perfect.

    The topmenu_icon.rco does not get converted, and should be replaced with a 5.50 topmenu_icon.rco and then compiled into a CTF.

    Certain prx do not go through the conversion process as well, and will cause the XMB to freeze when navigating, and should be replaced with 5.50 prx.

    vshmain.prx must be modified again for redirects as well.

    Although this is a handy tool and is a real time saver, themes should still be thoroughly tested after the conversion process.

    It depends on the theme.

    Just converting one CTF to 5.50 doesn't mean all conversions will work properly.

    If you're not having any problems with the CTF you converted, then it doesn't have modified prx/rco compiled into it that would cause problems in the XMB on 5.50.

    A CTF can contain any number of modified prx and rco.

    For instance, if the 5.00 version of the CTF has a modified msvideo_main_plugin.prx, after the conversion to 5.50, you wouldn't be able to select and play videos from the XMB.

    Your PSP would just freeze.
