Install PSP Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-D

The Gen TEAM has just released Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-D which fixes the troubles that 5.50 GEN-C brings and a bit more. What’s new with 5.50 GEN-D? It allows you to play ISOs and CSOs that require 5.55 or 6.00 firmware without having to patch the eboot.

If have a PSP-3000 / PSP-2000 TA088v3 however, you’re still stuck with patching.

Important: DO NOT attempt to install this on PSP-3000 / PSP-2000 TA088v3. YOU WILL BRICK YOUR PSP IF YOU DO.


  • A PSP with custom firmware installed AT LEAST 5.00 M33-6.  If you’re having problems installing 5.50 GEN-D, read the troubleshooting part below.
  • PSP battery that’s at least 78% full
  • Download: XGen Updater
  • Disable ALL plugins.
  • Back up your save files (so that if they get corrupted, you still have backups)

Recommended update: Install 5.50 GEN-D3 after installing 5.50 GEN-D.

How to install 5.50 GEN-D using XGen Updater

  • Connect your PSP to your computer
  • Extract the XGen Updater to your PC
  • Copy the PSP folder and the 550.pbp file to the root of your memory stick
  • On your XMB, go to Game > Memory Stick to start XGen Updater
  • Select Enter on the screen above
  • Choose Flash install CFW 5.50 GEN-D
  • XGEN Updater

What do I get with custom firmware 5.50 GEN-D and GEN-D2

Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-D Features:

  • All features of 5.50GEN-B2 are available.
  • Compatibility with games requiring firmware 5.51 with no additional handling (now, you don’t need Game Decrypter)
  • Compatibility with most of games normally protected and refusing to be ran on a Custom Firmware (Full Metal Alchemist, Soul Calibur, etc). Yoshihiro has created a system to run them and he succeed to make this system more stable and it’s now compatible with all PSP, unlike the 5.50 GEN-C.
  • Possibility to connect at the Playstation Store via MEDIAGO, to retrieve game and goodies without having to install Fake USB or other complicated stuff.
  • Support for 480×272 AVC video playback.

Fixes for Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-D2:

  • Evangelion Anti CFW patch Fix
  • Fix Wlan TKIP in game loop : pes 2009 , fifa , motorstorm , GTA cw ect….
  • Fix Video Output With 5.5X and 6.X Games like GTA Chinatowns War
  • Fixed recovery menu with make Pandora and make battery normal
  • removed splash screen but you have another spash screen in red color for let you know if the decrypter work .

After installing GEN-D2, How about some Free PSP Games?


If you’re having problems getting the black screen when installing 5.50 GEN-D, you need to reflash your PSP to 5.00 M33-6. If you’re already using 5.00 M33-6, upgrade to 5.50 GEN-B2, then run the 5.50 GEN-D installer:

Requirements for reflashing your PSP to 5.00 M33-6:

  • Extract the Hellcat’s Recovery flasher and copy it to PSP\GAME folder
  • Copy the 500.pbp to the Recovery folder (PSP\GAME\RECOVERY)
  • Run Hellcat’s Recovery flasher from your XMB
  • Reflash to 5.00 M33-6

If you don’t want to reflash, do the following:

  • Restore your PSP to the original settings. No CXMBs, no fonts, etc
  • Format flash1 and reset settings (recovery mode)
  • Set theme to orginal Sony theme
  • Turn off all plugins
  • Reformat memory stick

If it still doesn’t work, just update to 5.50 GEN-B2 before running the 5.50 GEN-D installer.

    My version is 5.50 GEN-B, but when I try to upgrade to CFW 5.50 Gen-D it says that the file is corrupted…
    Does anyone know what is the problem?


    • Gonzo October 25, 2009 Reply

      First you have to upgrade to GEN B2 or you will brick your PSP. I bricked mine twice trying, thank god for pandora. I normally get corrupted data when I put the patch at the wrong location you have to copy the enitre folder “5.50-genB2-update” into psp/game and it should work fine.

      At what point does it go black? Do you see this screen?

    • Gonzo October 24, 2009 Reply

      I had the same problem. You need to put GEN B2 before it will work otherwise you will brick yuor PSP like I did. You can skip GEN C though and go straight to GEN D.

  6. Zydn KRystlyr October 22, 2009 Reply

    but does your PSP still work??

    please if anybody can tell us what to do…

    does it work on 5.50 GEN-B2??

      Yes it’ll work on GEN-B2.

    • Gonzo October 25, 2009 Reply

      Yes the update works fine but you must have GEN B2 installed or your screen will go black (bricked.

    erm… i’m using 5.00 m33-6. and i want to play Naruto Shippudent Legends: Akatsuki Rising. Like it said, i can go directly from 5.00 m33-6 to 5.50 gen D? yes? soo.. what is the version.txt for. T___T my friend told me in order to play a game, you need to edit…something..=/

    • sylv3rblade October 22, 2009 Reply

      the version.txt used to work for SOME games checking said file for your firmware version. It’s long been rendered useless by Sony. Right now 5.50 GEN-D is the most fool-proof way of playing your games in ISO/CSO format.

  8. HVH October 22, 2009 Reply

    I’ve just upgraded my psp 2000 to GEN-D from GEN-B2. Everything works fine, however I did have to enter recovery mode (R trigger with Power trigger) and change UMD mode to M33 driver in order for it to play iso’s.
    Please note that for anyone who is having probs-you MUST have GEN-B2 and upgrade from this.

  9. Zydn Krystlyr October 23, 2009 Reply

    wow … thanks … now i can save the trouble of long decrypting of the game… hmm one more question … can the decrypted games for 5.50 gen B work in Gen D ….

      Haven’t really tried it 🙁 Will check when I get home.

      I am pretty sure that you need a pandora and magic stick to downgrade.

    Help? 🙁

    • sylv3rblade October 23, 2009 Reply

      Do one at a time and see if it works:
      Restore your PSP to the original settings. No CXMBs, no fonts, etc
      Format flash1 and reset settings (recovery mode)
      Set theme to orginal Sony theme
      Turn off all plugins
      Reformat memory stick

    • Gonzo October 25, 2009 Reply

      I had the same problem, this was rectified by updating to GEN B2 before going to GEN D and it worked fine after that. BTW your psp is bricked.

    What folder would I put the iso’s in. I’ve tried all three in the psp game folder. Any help would be appreciated.

    • sylv3rblade October 24, 2009 Reply

      You have to create a folder named ISO in the root folder of your memory card.

    • Gonzo October 25, 2009 Reply

      Just format your MS on your modded PSP and all the folders will be created including one that is called “ISO” This is the folder that you put your games in. Also inside the ISO folder there is a video folder for ISO movies. If you want just regular mp4 movies you put them into the video folder that is beside the “seplugins” folder.

  20. Hello there October 24, 2009 Reply

    Aha, found a solution, Gen-b does not work, I just updated to b2 and it worked

  21. Gonzo October 24, 2009 Reply

    Well, I just tried going from GEN B to GEN D on my PSP 1001 and I bricked it twice. Make sure you have your handy pandora near by.

    • Gonzo October 24, 2009 Reply

      Alright Fixed. You must update to GEN B2 before you put GEN D. You can skip GEN C. I tried running a new game that did not work before ie OBscure and it now works. It did not work with Persona.

    do you have a link to the updater for gen D? can’t find a working one

  23. Zydn KRystlyr October 25, 2009 Reply

    does the patch really has a flasher?? what does this actually do?? is it safe to patch from Gen D to Gen D2?

    • sylv3rblade October 25, 2009 Reply

      Yes. GEN-D eliminates the need to use Game Decryptor since it’s build right in. And yes, you can safely update to GEN-D2 from GEN-D.

        Any suggestions on why or shall i pandora battery to version 1.5 and load the cfw from scratch??

      You absolutely need to update to GEN B2 before trying or you will brick your PSP.

      • Gonzo October 25, 2009 Reply

        I just updated PSP star wars edition from 5.00 M33-6 directly to GEN D without any issues. Just remember to go to recovery mode after you are done and enable the VSH menu. Once done, switch to M33 drivers.

        Hi Gonzo, i have just borrowed and updated my brothers psp, i upgraded from CFW 3 to 5.00 m336 and then updated to 5.50 gen d without any problems.
        So i am going to downgrade my psp to version 5.00m336 and then upgrade to 5.50 gend
        So from all this upgrading to 5.50 gen d from 5.50 gen b2 will cause problems – in my experience anyway

        • jjj October 25, 2009

          I have applied the update to d2 was successful.
          I have not loaded cloudy with a chance of meat balls that did not run on my psp with 5.50b2 and noe works flawlessly.

          Can anyone tell me how to downgrade from5.50genb to 500m336??
          or do i just downgrade using pandoras battery and start from scratch?
          Thanks in advance

    PLease help.. I have a psp 1000 and I have tried to update to gen D, but every time i try, my psp screen just goes black. It starts to load, well it looks like, and the screen just goes black and stays there. What am I doing wrong?

  34. jjj October 28, 2009 Reply

    Hi Jesse i had the same problem you had, I was currently on 5.50 gen b2 and tried upgrading to 5.50 gend/2 but as soon as i clicked on the update icon of gen d i got the black screen.
    My resolve of this was to padora the psp back to 3.71m33, upgrade to 5.00 and THEN upgrade straight to 5.50GENd and the D2.
    Beleive me it worked. In my opinion if you have 5.00GENB/B2 you will have problems upgrading all though there are some of you that have successfully managed to do it from 5.50 gen b
    Hope that helped

    First thank you sylv3rblade for putting together an explanation of how to updat to the latest firmware. I have a question that may be off topic or addressed else where so sorry if it is. I have a PS3 and was able to connect my PSP 1000 M-33 5.00 to it directly and do the remote play. I could never make the connection over the internet and was told to update the firmware on the PSP so I thought this would help. I still cant work the connection over the internet and now i cant even establish the connection directly between the PSP and PS3. it is not a huge deal because i know how to down grade to M-33 5.00 if i want but i was wondering if anyone knew about a way to get the systems linked up with out using Sonys lame ass official firmware.
    Thx a million

  36. chomputer October 28, 2009 Reply

    I had zero hiccups, having not turned on my PSP for over a year.

    Started at 3.40 OE-A.
    3.52 m33
    3.52 m33-4
    5.00 m33-6
    then straight to the finals:
    5.50 GEN-D

    This is on a day 1 launch PSP-1001 TA-079 which I originally bought for Gran Turismo. Zero issues every step of the way, & played a few laps for the first time on the fantastic GT. Hard to say if it was worth the wait…just glad it’s finally here, & 60fps of mobile speed. ;]

    Hey silv3rblade,
    I’m up and running GEN-D2 and it’s great! When I open the “GEN Recovery Menu” and go to “Configuration” I see “Use M33 Network Update (Not Yet)”. What is it used for when I am no longer running M33? Can I use it to connect wirelessly to the internet for GEN updates? Thanks!

    • sylv3rblade October 29, 2009 Reply

      It’s part of the older M33 code. If you remember, starting 3.90 M33, you can update your CFW to a newer M33 cfw by using the network update. No word on when the GEN team will be able to get this running for their CFW.

    Hi all:
    I patched my 5.00 m33-6 straight to Gen D and it worked like a charm, but before I patched it to D-2, none of my .iso would work and it scared the living shit out of me. After I put in the D2 patch it worked like a charm though.

    Could someone please tell me what happened then? I’m terrified of bricking my PSP, did that whole this-game-could-not-be-started thing mean I semi-bricked it?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  45. Greg November 4, 2009 Reply

    I had a similar problem, I was on Gen-B2 couldnt update to Gen-D all i got was a black screen when running it, but i’d been taking the update folder of gen D and putting it in the PSP’s Game folder instead of at the memory stick root. so make sure you do this and the 550.PBP stays outside the PSP folder but again at the root. The english in the document supplied with the Gen-D isnt fantastic, just takes a bit of thinking lol

    Not used my psp in nearly a year was on 5.01 before I started too, even though using ghostbusters worked on 5.50 Gen-B anyway!

    Anyone else noticed if you try to update from an older firmware on a UMD, system says you have firmware 9.90 and don’t need too?

    Hi Guys i need your help. I was on 5.50 Gen-D2 and it was working fine. A few days back when i came from from work i saw my psp with the mem stick popping out from the slot. It turns out that my son did something with the mem stick. I tested the psp and it is still working and i saved the new spongebob game to the mem stick. It was still working for a day but the in the next day when i was playing the spongebob game the game froze and i turned it off by long pressing the off button and when it started the spongebob game was corrupted. I think the mem stick is now broken due to this so i tried using a diff mem stick but when i go to the game in the xmb, its saying that there is no games there. the pictures are being read but why does the games not showing. please help me… thanks

    guys this is a prob wid me i gt something wrong i think?
    Well i upgraded to gen d2 by going to gen a then gen b then gen b2 then gen c then d then d2 u got playstation network.
    when i acess it it says “You need to update your psp to use this”
    To just see i go to update me psp it says “You dont need to update.You have the latest version.” i need to access it as there are some games i bought on my friends i wanna put them on my psp + he has psp!go.
    so its in his internal memory card.

    Need an answer please

    • sylv3rblade November 14, 2009 Reply

      The PSN Store (if you’re accessing it directly from your PSP) requires at least 6.00 OFW. The PSP Go can connect with the PSN because of it’s higher firmware version than 5.50 GEN-D.

    but where do i paste the 550.pbp ???

    i started the hack and it says did not find

    • sylv3rblade November 19, 2009 Reply

      Your computer sees your PSP (or your memory stick) as another drive when you connect it right? Just copy it to said folder.
      If your PSP is connected as drive E:, copy the 550.pbp so that it would be read as E:550.pbp

      There’s versions of several popular plugins for the GEN CFW. I’ll try looking into them and add them to the post.

  76. Daxter Ron November 23, 2009 Reply

    Hey sylv3rblade,
    Strange coincidence, but currently running GEN-D2 since last month with no problems until yesterday. I installed plugins for the first time and they seemed to work fine until I rebooted. Then the system ran at about 10% speed and the screen was skipping. I backed up my memory stick and then reinstalled GEN-D. Then upgraded to GEN-D2. I don’t know if reinstalling was the right thing to do, but it worked great for me. I’m not going to install anymore plugins until you post your compatable GEN list.
    This is the list of plugins (and homebrew) in order of installation that caused the problem.
    DaedalusX64 Alpha Rev 443 – homebrew
    Hold v4.0 – plugin
    DayViewer beta 4 – plugin
    Game Catagories v11 – plugin
    homebrewsorterGUIb2 – homebrew
    Homebrew Sorter for GCR v01c – homebrew
    CueCardReader01.001beta – homebrew
    Sorry for the long post but on a brighter side, since all your help last month, I’ve since installed GEN-D2 on two of my friends PSP’s. Thanks again!

    • sylv3rblade November 23, 2009 Reply

      Did you check your CPU clock before you downgraded? Because the symptoms you’ve identified points to an accidental change of the CPU clock value in the VSH menu. You can test this yourself but you’ll probably get frustrated >_> I learned it the hard way.

      • Daxter Ron November 23, 2009 Reply

        No, I didn’t check the CPU clock before I downgraded. I was running GEN-D2 when I started having problems, so I downdraded to GEN-D with the xgen updater. It actually fixed the sluggish speed and the skipping screen, so I reinstalled GEN-D2. My psp is currently running great! With no homebrews or plugins installed.
        The thing is, I was having these problems before I downgraded from GEN-D2 to GEN-D. That’s actually why I downgraded in the first place and why I thought the problems came from me installing all of those plugins and homebrews. I just figured that they weren’t compatable with GEN.
        Both my XMB and Game CPU Clocks in the 5.50 VSH menu are currently at ‘default’. I’m sort of a noob at this, looks like I’m learning it the hard way too!
        Do you think I can reinstall all those plugins and homebrews? Thanks again for all your help, couldn’t do it without you!

        • Daxter Ron November 24, 2009

          Hey silv3rblade,
          Sorry for the double post…I couldn’t see the forest for the trees…I reread your reply and now see that I should have checked my CPU clock before I downgraded, as it could have been accidentally changed from ‘default’ and been the root cause of the problem. Good information to know, guess you learn as you go. I changed my VSH menu as ‘disabled’ as I harly ever use it anyway.
          Thanks for you patience with me…all the best!

In my system information it says “version 5.50” only and pressing ‘select’ button doesn’t open the cfw menu. Also, whenever I run the recovery flasher, the system displays “This game cannot be started. The data is corrupted” even though the HC rflash menu does not show a corrupted icon and my games aren’t displayed. Please be honest if ever this problem cannot be solved so I can move on with my life xD. If you have a solution, I’d gladly appreciate it.

      Without a pandora battery, there is simply no way for you to downgrade/install CFW on a PSP once it’s firmware is above 5.03.

      This is the problem: “copy to folder MS ROOT”
      Make sure that the 550.PBP is on the root folder of your Memory Stick, not inside a folder named MS ROOT.. There’s a big difference >_>
      If you think that you’ve done it right, make a screenshot of the contents of your memory stick and post it here.

    I was able to load GEN-D onto my PSP 2000. However, at times after playing my ISOs for a little while, my PSP would freeze and GEN-D would disappear and bring me back to v5.03. This has happened several times already.

    Is it just me or what can I do to fix this?

    Thanks so much.

      Wait… turning off your PSP reverts your firmware back to 5.03? Have you checked if your PSP is hackable?

  114. ivanist January 20, 2010 Reply

    Yes. It is hackable. I was able to play different ISOs on the PSP. It was during the time when I play games and it freezes. Turning on and off was ok.

    Thanks for your response.

    • sylv3rblade January 20, 2010 Reply

      But you said that it reverts back to 5.03. o_O
      Let me get this straight…
      1. Your PSP had 5.50 GEN-D installed
      2. When you tried to play games in froze
      3. When you turned on your PSP it’s back to 5.03? -> OFW or 5.03 GEN something?

      That about right?

      • ivanist January 21, 2010 Reply

        Yes, your interpretations are correct. After it froze, it reverted back to 5.03 OFW.

        What I did to get to 5.50 GEN-D:

        1. Updated my firmware to 5.03
        2. Flashed to ChickHen R2
        3. Flashed to GEN-A,B,C and now D.
        4. Played games, ok for several days, then it would freeze on me and revert back to 5.03

        Did I not do a step correctly? Thanks for your help!

        • sylv3rblade January 21, 2010

          Regarding number 3,
          Did you install 5.50 GEN-A or 5.03 GEN-A?

          I think see the problem already but I just need confirmation.

        • ivanist January 22, 2010
        • sylv3rblade January 22, 2010

          There’s the problem. You’re installing the permanent firmware (5.50 GEN-D3) over the partial one (5.03 GEN-A).

          Here’s the fix:
          1. Make sure your PSP’s running chickhen and 5.03 GEN-A again
          2. Download, install and run PSPIdent from this page. -> Don’t skip this step. Make sure your PSP is hackable or else you might end up bricking it :(.
          3. If your PSP’s motherboard (this is what PSPIdent will display on your screen) is not a TA-088v3, proceed to this page to permanently install custom firmware (5.00 M33.. then you can upgrade to 5.50 GEN-D3). If your motherboard is indeed a TA-088v3, install 5.03 GEN-C.

        • ivanist January 23, 2010

          Thanks for all of your helpful post!

          I have the God of War PSP Slim 2001 with Serial starting HU8. I believe it is hackable. Will definitely confirm with PSPIdent before I move on tonight.

          Thanks so much, sylv3rblade!! I have successfully updated to CFW 5.50 GEN-D3.

          I will try to play some games and hopefully this will stay and won’t revert back to 5.03 again.

        • ivanist January 25, 2010

          By the way, can I use the PSP to go online? I am afraid Sony will send an update to kill the CFW. Thanks.

        • sylv3rblade January 25, 2010

          Yep but you can’t connect to the PSN. You can still browse websites though.

        • sylv3rblade January 27, 2010

          Looks like a brick. Don’t worry, hanap ka lang ng may Pandora Battery and have him/her reflash your PSP (parang system restore un). Mas safe na pumunta sa shop pero me bayad un.

    I have PSP200 TA088 using 5.50gen-A full when I install 5.50gend using Xgen updater doesn’t work,they said (ms0://5.50.PBP not found in your root of mem stick).Please help what should I do.

    • sylv3rblade January 22, 2010 Reply

      Did you miss the third line by any chance?

      Copy the PSP folder and the 550.pbp file to the root of your memory stick

    sylv3rblade..meaning to say I just copy the PSP folder & 5.50.PBP file and paste it to memory stick ex: F:PSP\GAME\..i’m rigth?

    • sylv3rblade January 23, 2010 Reply

      No copy them to your memory stick as is. The installer needs to read 550.pbp as X: 550.pbp

      First off, some questions:
      What’s your PSP model?
      What was your firmware when you upgraded?
      What’s your PSP’s condition now (does anything happen when you turn it on, etc)?

  121. Decoy January 27, 2010 Reply

    Sylv3rblade..Do you have that kind of installer or software to view iso/cso games cover page in PC? To give more interested to the viewer…thnxs

    • sylv3rblade January 27, 2010 Reply

      Any software that mounts ISOs/CSOs will do. Have you tried daemon tools? It’s free BTW:
      Once you’ve mounted the CSO, just change the file indicated here:

      And you’re done 😀

      Hmm.. You just gave me a great idea for a new post 😀

    i already have cfw 5.50 Gen-B(full) in my psp 1000 but when i press the gen-D update in my psp, the screen turns black. wat should i do? all the plugins are disabled and my theme is original.

    • sylv3rblade February 4, 2010 Reply

      Try updating to 5.50 GEN-B2 before installing the GEN-D (or GEN-D3) update. If all else fails, read the troubleshooting guide on how you can downgrade.

    nag upgrade kasi ako ng CFW from 5.00 m33-6 to 5.50 gen-D2, para kasi ako nagkaroon ng battery issue, full naman sya kaso ayaw mag power on, pero pag tinanggal ko ang battery at ginagamit ko lang ang AC adaptor ok naman, may gagawin pa ba akong upgrade? Tnx in Advance

    • sylv3rblade May 14, 2011 Reply

      Mukhang bad flash. Pwede mo ireinstall ung 5.50 GEN-D2 using the same installer or upgrade to 5.50 GEN-D3.

      • scythe1029 May 15, 2011 Reply


        hmm, papanong reinstall, you mean i ddowngrade ko sya ulet to 5.00 tapos reinstall to 5.50 gen-d2? or uulitin ko lang ang installation ng gen-d2 kahit naka gen-d2 na ako? tnx sa reply ha 😀

      • scythe1029 May 15, 2011 Reply


        ok, verify ko lang ha, so pag i-rereinstall ko ang gen-d2, isasalpak ko na rin ang battery noh tsaka AC adaptor siempre noh, tnx ulet sa reply 😀

      • scythe1029 May 15, 2011 Reply


        na reinstall ko na sir, kaso ganun pa rin, ayaw pa rin gumana ng battery, pero ok naman pag naglalaro ng games, halos lahat ng di ko nalalaro dati sa 5.00 nalalaro ko na ngayun sa 5.50 gen-d2, kaso nga lang nakasalpak lagi sa adaptor since di na gumana battery ko after the upgrade,

        so sa tingin nyo sir upgrade na lang to gen-d3? tnx tnx 😀

        • sylv3rblade May 15, 2011

          This is odd kasi it’s the first time na may nagupgrade at hinde na narecognize ang battery. Try mo makipagswap ng ibang battery and test it out.

  140. scythe1029 May 21, 2011 Reply


    sir update lang, ayaw na talga gumana ng battery ko, nanghiram din ako ng battery gumana naman, sinubukan ko din yung battery ko na iplug sa psp nya ayaw din gumana, pinagtatakahan ko lang bat nasira battery ko after an update

    anyway, sinubukan ko na rin ang gen-d3 kaso naghahang, so balak ko ngaun i-update to prometheus to resolve the issue, ask ko lang pag naka prometheus na ako tapos di ko nagustuhan, pede ko pa rin ba sya ibalik to 5.00 m33-6 using hellcats recovery flasher? tnx in advance

  141. scythe1029 May 21, 2011 Reply



    pero pag naka 5.50 prometheus na ako (also known as 5.50 gen-d4), pede ko rin ba sya ibalik to 5.00 M33-6? tnx sa reply
