    Default Photofast users, read this! Found out how to disable magicgate on 5.50gen-a/b

    For the last few hours, I've googled around to find a

    way to disable magicgate in 5.50GEN-A/B cos I use a

    photofast cr-5400, which is super laggy when magicgate

    is enabled. IRshell is used to disable this troublesome

    feature, but unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be

    working on 5.50GEN, only on 5.00 M33. I may have found

    out the solution microSD adapter /sandisk mem stick

    users need.

    Requirements:
    Pandora battery
    Hacked psp running 5.50GEN-A/B
    Memory stick with IRshell for 5.00
    5.00 patch
    Despertar del Cementario v8 installed
    500.pbp(OFW 5.00 sony update) on the root of mem stick.

    Method>

    Make sure you are using 5.50GEN-A/B or there will

    probably be no point in going through this process.

    1. Launch DC8 the usual way you would using your pandora

    battery.

    2. Select "test M33" option. It will launch you into

    5.00m33-4. PLUG YOUR PSP INTO MAINS POWER AND REMOVE THE

    PANDORA BATTERY!

    3. Launch IRshell in 5.00m33-4 xmb

    4. Go to the IRshell settings and toggle the option to

    disable magicgate to "off/disabled"

    5. GO back to the root menu of IRshell and go to

    directory view> IRSHELL> PATCH> 5.00 and launch the

    patch

    6.AND THERE, MAGICGATE IS DISABLED IN 5.50 GENA/B.

    ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is not working. In Test M33 mode all flash0 writes are redirected to ms0:/TM/DC*/. You will find patched pspbtjnf.bin or pspbtjnf_02g.bin and irspatch.prx in ms0:/TM/DC8/kd folder not in flash0:/kd/. Also irsmgr.lck file which tells irspatch.prx that MagicGate is disabled is in ms0:/TM/DC8/ folder and not in flash1:/ as it should be. This patch is also not working in Test M33 mode.

    I got MagicGate disabled with 5.50 GEN-B!

    You need:
    PSPBTCNF tool by manatails007
    irspatch.prx from ms0:\IRSHELL\PATCH\5.00
    irsmgr.lck from ms0:\TM\DC8 if you used instructions in the first post or do it yourself (zero file length).

    Flash irspatch.prx to flash0:/kd/ folder using VSH menu option and PC.
    Flash irsmgr.lck to flash1:/ root using VSH menu option and PC.

    Start PSPBTCNF tool and press X to extract bin files to MS.
    Edit pspbtjnf.txt or pspbtjnf_02g.txt (phat or slim) with text editor that keeps unix file format (notepad ++).
    Add line
    $/kd/irspatch.prx VG
    after
    $/kd/usb.prx VGA
    Save file.
    Start PSPBTCNF tool and press TRIANGLE to build bin files.
    Press SQUARE to flash bin files.

    You're done! No more waiting when going to VIDEO in XMB!!!

    You can test that MagicGate is disabled with a genuine MS (MagicGate Unknown).
