Install PSP Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-D3

Then GEN team pushes another update, to it’s popular CFW, 5.50 GEN-D3 that introduces several bugfixes from the previous releases as well as introduces better compatibility for games and plugins. Do note that 5.50 GEN-D3 is for hackable PSPs only. Read the Important warnings below:

If you have a PSP-3000 / PSP-2000 TA088v3 however, you can install 5.03 GEN-C.

Important: DO NOT attempt to install this on PSP-3000 / PSP-2000 TA088v3. YOU WILL BRICK YOUR PSP IF YOU DO.
Important: If you are updating from 5.50 GEN-B, you need to install 5.50 GEN-B2 before proceeding. Otherwise, YOU WILL BRICK YOUR PSP.
Important UPDATE: If you are having trouble playing the latest PSP Games, you may want to install the Prometheus-4 module or use the ISO Tool Patching guide. πŸ™‚

    I successfully installed 5.50 GEN-D3 on my PSP 1004 from 5.50 GEN-D2. When I checked the system information, it only showed 5.50 GEN-D (full). What could be the problem?

      Use the troubleshooting guide to reflash your PSP back to 5.00 M33-6 then install 5.50 GEN-D3 again.

      5.50 GEN-D3 will allow you to play most of the recently released games that would otherwise require manually patching the game.

    Hello sylv3rblade, I’ve upgraded a PSP1000 to from 5.00 m33-6 to 5.50GEN using XGEN PANDORA. Upgrade was successful, but when I tried to play Tekken 6, it still didn’t go through. SO what I did was installed the OFW 5.50 and it says on my PSP that version is Version 5.50 but it’s not detecting any games installed and when I tried running the xgen again, it now says “This game cannot be started. Yhe data is corrupted.” HELP please…

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!

      You’ve upgraded your PSP to the OFFICIAL firmware, not CUSTOM firmware. You will need a pandora battery to install CFW again.

    When you said “Copy the PSP folder and the 550.pbp file to the root of your memory stick,” do you mean simply copying the PSP folder and the 550.pbp directly to the memory stick (F:/)? Otherwise, what do you mean by “root?” Thanks.

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade January 1, 2010 Reply

      root of memory card = directly on to the memory card (if your PC reads your PSP as F:/ then copy the file to drive F:/)

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade January 23, 2010 Reply

      Nope. If you try to upgrade straight to 5.50 GEN-D3, you’ll likely brick your PSP. Update to 5.00 M33 first.

      • 3vilmunkey evilmunkey January 24, 2010 Reply

        ok. what if I upgrade first to 5.5 GEN A then to GEN B before GEN D3? TO be honest I’m a little confused with what cfw ishould use…

        • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade January 25, 2010

          If you’re going to upgrade to 5.50 GEN-A then to 5.50 GEN-B then to 5.50 GEN-D, you need to follow this route:
          5.50 GEN-A -> 5.50 GEN-B -> 5.50 GEN-B2 -> 5.50 GEN-D.
          If you went straight from 5.50 GEN-A to 5.50 GEN-D:
          5.50 GEN-A -> 5.50 GEN-D

        • 3vilmunkey evilmunkey January 25, 2010

          Oh no, I went ahead with the route 5.50 GEN-A -> 5.50 GEN-B -> 5.50 GEN-D3, skipping the 5.50 GEN-B2. is that alright?

          You’re only missing a few files which won’t really bother you until you play some of the latest games like Tekken 6. This post has the instructions you need.

        • 3vilmunkey evilmunkey January 30, 2010

          hey, it’s me again. I’ve observed something but I’m not sure if it’s related to the upgrade. Sometimes in the middle of the game while loading it just stops the activity and freezes. I’ve seen this more frequent when I play Gran Turismo. I’m not sure why, but here are some of my speculations:

          a. Is it beacuse of my update?
          b. Is it because GT is not decrypted?

          I saw your blog about decryption

          I’ll try that and see where it takes me. but while I do that, i hope you can help me AGAIN. thanks!

        • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade January 30, 2010

          I’m not really sure if I we can put the blame on your upgrade. Are you experiencing this on any other game? If yes, you probably need to reflash (reinstallation of 5.50 GEN-D3 via a Pandora Battery). If not, you can always proceed to decrypt GT. However, if you don’t want to go that route, I suggest downloading a version of the game that is patched for 5.00 M33. That ensures the best compatibility.

        • 3vilmunkey evilmunkey January 31, 2010

          I think I found my prob. I tried using a different freshly formatted MS. Looks like it did the trick.

      What firmware version is currently on your PSP? 5.50 GEN-D3?

  47. Katripojoker Yala February 5, 2010 Reply

    Yo sylv3rblade…at the beginning of all of this, all I had was a sweet psp with the custom firmware 3.71 M33…I went through everything this site suggested…upgraded to 5.00 M33…then had to upgrade every patch until I got to patch 5.00 M33-6…and finally managed to upgrade to this 5.50 GEN-D3.

    So, all I have now left to say is that I’m thankful because right now, my psp is just about the same as it was, except now it’s upgraded enough for me to finally play the Tekken 6 that I’ve had for so long now.

    If you ever decide to leave this business of helpin folks like us with our psps, then, until you’ve made sure there’s someone to replace you, don’t. Because by the end of a week or a month, you probably make (n) people’s days and lives a whole lot better.

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade February 5, 2010 Reply

      I don’t recommend directly upgrading due to the number of people having problems with jumping to 5.50 GEN-D3 directly. Also if you have 4.01 M33-2 then your PSP is hackable so no worries there.

I know all web sites need to get paid to stay up. but im grateful that this is not full of adds and scary pop ups that make you wonder how safe it is to be surfing there. Thx again, I appreciate your hard work.

On a certain level, After I beat a boss, it was supposed to load and continue, but my psp froze completely and I all i can do is to push the home button or shut it down… Same goes for Smackdown vs raw… It froze while loading to the next stage/level… THe main problem is that, when loading, it freezes… Can You help me with this? thanks man!!!

          Well I got the game using torrent..why? will it yield to a higher corruption possibility when i download it in parts??… my problem is solved now.. I used the other link which gave me an iso file… Dissidia is working now..To all the people encountering lags, freezing, its the game not the firmware!! If the game you want to play uses large amount of graphics, prefer the iso than the cso file…:) 5.50 gen d-3 is the best firmware there is at the moment!!

        • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 9, 2010

          Yep it’s the file. A cso is the compressed version of iso so the PSP still has to decompress it whenever you need to access anything. The pro for that is the lower filesize πŸ˜€ Anyway congrats on your installation πŸ˜€

    Hi. I’m new to the PSP console. I would like to ask if what kind of PSP console can you recommend for me to buy? I was informed of the PSP 3000 with system version 5.03 which can be hacked using the chickHEN and there are the new PSP 3000 with system version 5.50 and above like the ones sold as limited editions ( hannah montana, assasin’s creed, gran turismo). Is there a way to modify this system? thank you.

  98. catsg88 cathy April 18, 2010 Reply

    Hi again. Is it recommended to buy PSP 3000s with newer versions? I am really confused with your discussions of the versions 5.5 gen-b and gen d3. thank you.

    • dark_rance Lord Rance April 18, 2010 Reply

      Well, I’m pretty biased on this. I mean, I’ve had PSP-2000 ever since. It’s a simple matter of updating the firmware actually. Also, the newer versions (3000) would have a bigger chance of becoming bricked due to the motherboard installed. I’d rather have PSP 2000 coz I really see any big difference…

      • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 18, 2010 Reply

        Well you’d have to note that some of the newer PSP-2000s have the same limitation as the PSP-3000 (meaning they can only install upto 5.03 cfw).

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 18, 2010 Reply

      If you’re in the market for a new PSP unit, you can purchase a PSP-3000 as long as it’s firmware version does not exceed 5.03. If it does, I suggest that you don’t fork your money for it since you’ll be stuck with just original games.

      As for the conundrum of 5.50 GEN-D3, cfw, etc. Here’s a simple guide for that:

    I tried GEN – D3. But after the install, the PSP just goes through the black screen n turnoff routine. I can’t seem to do anything :[

    Help please, and thanks for everything

        I retried Gen-D3 multiple times, but no dice.

        But i did find that my L-Button was stuck (go figure), so I fixed it up.

        Do you think that was the problem? having a stuck L-Button or is it the flash thingy? do I need to 5.00 OFW or something?

      As with all CFW updates, there is a slight chance of bricking (which can be resolved with a Pandora Battery) or having your saves corrupted (not much you can do here). Most of those incidents occur if you have any other plugin on your PSP so be sure to turn them off before updating.

      You can’t downgrade by trying to install this CFW. You need to upgrade to 6.20, run 6.20 TN, run Hellcat’s recovery flasher and downgrade to 5.50 GEN-D3.

        • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade February 21, 2011

          * Download 6.35 OFW for your PSP model: PSP-2000 | PSP-3000 | PSP Go

      Sounds like a bad flash, try reinstalling 5.50 GEN-D3 by running the XGEN Updater again. Before that however, please check the value game speed on your VSH menu and post it here.

    is it necessary that i should change CFW5.00 m33-4 to m33-6 for upgading 5.05gen d3?

    will this update work on my cousin’s PSP? his CFW is 5.00m33-4, will this update brick it?(his PSP) plz tell me how can i update his PSP into 5.50 prome-4! i have porme-4 updater and worked on my PSP but it doesnt work in his PSP, it says that the program was for gen d3 only, thats why i need GEN D3!!!!!! well sorry for the exclamation points… i really need some help here

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 21, 2011 Reply

      There’s a prometheus-4 module for 5.00 M33. But if you want to install 5.50 GEN-D3 then yes, it will work with your cousin’s PSP. There IS a slight chance of bricking but that can be recovered using a pandora battery.

    Hi! I have a PSP-2001. It’s software version is 4.01 M33-2. Is it okay to install this on my PSP? Will it brick my PSP? I can’t risk anything because I just spent like $50 for a new LCD screen and got it fixed. I don’t’ wanna brick it or anything. I Just need to make sure everything is gonna be fine before I install it. πŸ™‚


    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 22, 2011 Reply

      Please upgrade to 5.00 M33 before upgrading to 5.50 GEN-D3. A lot of people had problems updating to 5.50 GEN-D3 from firmware versions older than 5.00

      • linuxrulz36 LinuxRulz April 22, 2011 Reply

        So after I upgrade to 5.00 M33, there’ll be no problem in upgrading to 5.50 GEN-D3. Is that right? Or are there still risks like bricking your psp?

        • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 22, 2011

          There is always a risk involved in updating but yes, it’s relatively safer to update to 5.00 M33 then 5.50 GEN-D3

        • linuxrulz36 LinuxRulz April 22, 2011

          I tried to download the 5.00 M33 software and 500.PBP from the link you posted but it says my download has expired. I can’t download it. Is there any other site that I can download it from?

    Uhm, in your post above, you said to copy the PSP folder and the 550.PBP on the root of my psp but a window pops up when I paste it asking if I should delete and replace the other psp folder. Should I ?

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 23, 2011 Reply

      No. Just paste it over the existing PSP folder (unless you’re on a Mac). It will properly copy the files and folders into it’s proper place.

  178. linuxrulz36 LinuxRulz April 23, 2011 Reply

    I don’t get it. I’m sorry I’m not really good at understanding english. Should I just replace the old PSP folder with the new one? There’s an existing PSP folder in my memory stick…

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 23, 2011 Reply

      Yes just replace… You don’t need to delete it because all your saves are right there. Just copy the PSP folder from the download into your PSP. When you see the prompt to overwrite, just click yes.

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade April 26, 2011 Reply

      Well you’re trying to install 5.50 on 5.51, the installation will always fail for that since you can only install firmware equal to or higher than your current firmware. If you want to install 5.50 GEN-D3, you will need a Pandora battery. However if you don’t have one consider installing either: 6.20 TN-E or 6.35 Pro-B5

      CFW are permanent, LCFW are temporary in the sense that if your PSP looses power, you have to reinstall it again.

    Alright. I have tried every possible thing but I still receive a black screen leading into a Restart for certain game isos like Birth By Sleep Final Mix and Dissidia 012. However some games do work like Crisis Core.

    I have tried going into recovery mode and disabling/enabling every possible thing based on every guide i could fin on youtube and forums.

    I’m much fed up becasue its not the memory card (formating does nothing), the iso (DLed many versions of game and none work) and M33 or Normal or Sony do nothing.

    Please I am so lost it seems like no matter what i do certain games just will not work, HELP!!

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade December 8, 2011 Reply

      The games you mentioned need to be specifically patched to work with 5.50 GEN-D3. You can try installing the prometheus module (currently prome-4) but it won’t work with some of the newer games.

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade December 25, 2011 Reply

      Nope. You’ll really need to go through a “nearer” CFW in order to install 5.50 GEN-D3. You can upgrade to 3.52 M33 then upgrade 5.00 M33-6 then 5.50 GEN-D3. 5.50 requires at least a kernel at least or higher than 3.52 so trying to upgrade directly will fail.

    • atmaxplorer sylv3rblade January 15, 2012 Reply

      I would suggest sticking to 5.50 GEN-D3 as it’s much more supported compared to 5.00 M33-6 which is essentially now a legacy firmware.
