Prometheus-4 for 5.00 M33, 5.03 GEN-C and 5.50 GEN-D3
Before leaving the PSP scene, Prometheus developer Liquidzigong left everyone a parting gift in the form of the Prometheus-4 module which will allow you to play games that require 6.20 OFW and above and most importantly, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd.
Here’s the Prometheus-4 add-on for each of the popular CFW for the PSP:
Prometheus-4 for 5.00 M33
Requires: 5.00 M33
Download: Prometheus-4 for 5.00 M33 | Prometheus-4 for 5.00 M33
Prometheus-4 for 5.03 GEN-C
Requires: 5.03 GEN-C
Download: Prometheus-4 for 5.03 GEN-C
Prometheus-4 for 5.50 GEN-D3
Requires: 5.50 GEN-D3
Download: Prometheus-4 for 5.50 GEN-D3
Please note that you need the required firmware to be installed before getting the modules on your PSP.
- Extract the zip archive for your custom firmware
- copy the Prometheus folder into X:PSP/GAME/ (that’s your Memory Stick)
- Run the installer from the XMB and then hit X to start the installer
If you’re already on the Prometheus module, simply follow the instructions above and it will overwrite the Prometheus module installed on your system.

hi i’m using GEN-C (full)… is it ok if i install prometheus even its not GEN-C only???
Yep it’s perfectly alright to install the prometheus module with your current firmware
thanks it worked perfect for me, now i can play Monster Hunter 3 ( i was on D3)
Hi , I need your help. I have firmware gen-d3 with this last update from Liquidzigong (Prometheus-4 for 5.50 GEN-D3) but I still can´t use my camera PSP-450x. The problem is not with the camera because it works on another PSP…could I do something on my firmware ? any help ? thanks !
What is the current firmware of the PSP that the camera works on?
Hi, it works on a “fat PSP” with firmware version 6.31.
Is your PSP model a PSP-2000 or PSP-3000?
Hi ! My PSP is a PSP-2000.
Hello Svlv3rblade! could I expect any solution for my problem…?
I have 5.50 Gen D3 and I upgraded to prometheus and my games goes corrupted!
Nevermind! Because of your help my PSP is workign again
Not a prob. Enjoy 🙂
How come the screenshots says Prome-4 but when I apply it, it says Prome-3.
I am using 5.03 Gen-C
Hmm that’s odd. I guess the version hasn’t been updated for the 5.03 GEN-C build.
I clicked on the link above:
Download: Prometheus-3 for 5.03 GEN-C
The link does says Prometheus-3. So is it really Prome-4?
Thank you for the reply
Wait, I’m going to re-upload the updater.
I’m seeing alot of updates for PSP 2000 and 3000, then how about PSP 1000? I’m currently outdated yes, I’m kinda of the scene at the moment. Help?
i have updated my firmware 2 prome-3 and there seems to be a problem on the playstation network i can’t connect anymore pls. help (imy psp is a 1000 model)
Install the PSN fucker/lover plugin.
is it normal to see a red flash when i load any real umd game? games work fine, its just that red flash before loading makes me feel uneasy.
The red screen simply means it’s decrypting the game so it’ll work with your PSP.
i can’t seem to download Prometheus-4 for 5.03 GEN-C is there any other link?
reuploading to a different mirror… they’ll be up in a bit
Hi, it says Prometheus 4 but the link says “Prometheus-3 for 5.50 GEN D3″…
Is this really Prometheus 4?
my bad, I was updating the post by adding the second mirror and it slipped my mind. Yes, these links are for prome-4
Hi sylv3rblade, i have a psp 3000. with a firmware of 5.03 then i installed the 5.03 hen. which runs at 1 click. then i was wondering if what is the best thing to do to my psp. if I upgrade to 6.xx or stick to 5.03.
btw, how to run Prometheus-4 at 5.03 firmware? psp 3000 here.
For prome-4, just follow the instructions above. As for whether to upgrade or not, it depends on what you want to play. 6.xx firmwares (6.35 Pro and it’s variants, currently updated to 6.35 Pro-B5) and it’s variants have a lot more flexibility and support for newer games while 5.03 GEN-C is a much more stable release. in terms of games, 6.xx firmwares have better compatibility with newer games and sometimes fail to load with older ones while 5.03 + Prome-4 work with older games, and newer ones, for now.
Basically it’s a choice between playing older games and newer ones although a bit of warning, upgrading from 5.03 to 6.xx might corrupt some of your saves (most notably when those saves are played from patched ISOs).
can i use Prometheus on a PSP 2000 and 3000 with TA088v3 mobo?
or may be use 6.xx PRO-B?
Only if you’re on 5.03 GEN-C. Otherwise upgrade to any of the 6.xx firmwares
uhmm , i have 5.50 Gen D3, if i will install the prome 4, would it still be possible to revert it back?
Yep, just reflash using the XGEN Updater
oh okay thanks,.. and one more thing, do i need to use pandora battery to install it? or any requirement aside from the firmware? i’m just scared to brick my psp. 🙂
and uhmmm, the folder says 5.50 prometheus, is it 5.50 GEN-D3 really? sorry if i ask too much questions. 🙂
If you need to reflash 5.50 GEN-D3: http://atmaxplorer.com/2009/12/install-psp-custom-firmware-5-50-gen-d3/
okay thank you. 🙂 my last question is, is there any other requirement to install it aside from the firmware? like pandora battery or whatsoever. 😀 and Patapon 3 need prometheus 4 to play it right? thanks alot. 😀
is there any other requirement to install it aside from the firmware? like pandora battery or whatsoever.
sylv3rblade bakit ung patapon 3 nag oopen naman sa 5.03 prometheus 4 kaso hangang sa loading lng di nagtutuloy sa game…eto ung link sa youtube ganito nangyayari sakin..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qINZsG7ezLA
Look for a patched version
Hi, i have a psp 3000 with MHUspeedv3, then i installed a cfw enabler (cfwenabler 3.70 by xenogears) that has 5.00m33-6.20m33 not m33-6 w.e. i was wondering if it could work. If it wont, is there like another CFW enabler or something i could try?
Excuse my noobiness, havent played psp for a while and i wanna play patapon 3
Err.. You lost me at CFWEnabler ._.
CFWEnabler is basically equivalent to 5.03 GEN-C. If you’re asking if you can install any 6.20 TN Hen, yes, but you have to upgrade to 6.20 OFW. As for Patapon 3, it’s compatible with all 6.xx Hen releases so far.
Hi I have CFW 5.50 GEN-D3…Can you please confirm that installing Prometheus 4 will not affect anything like older games? Thx in advance
Yep. It won’t affect your saves. It’s just an add-on after all.
Ok so I just completed the updating and everything seems fine. Good thing I kept a saves backup since some were corrupted. However Ghost Recon Predator boots but has no sound on the menu and when I press new game…it shuts down the psp. I tried two different isos. Any ideas?
Switch UMD modes in the XMB menu
By XMB you mean the recovery menu right?
XMB is the main menu of your PSP (Cross Media Bar)
Could you tell me exactly where the umd settings are in the XMB? They are on the settings section on the far left of the menu? Sorry for making too many questions…I’m a bit of new with the psp
What you’re looking for is this:
The UMD ISO mode.
To access that menu, press select on your XMB.
Wow, svlv3r you have very comprehensive site, and you seem to give great help. Thanks in advance for any help.
I have a psp2k (TA-85v2) 5.00 m33-6 and I just installed Prometheus 4 (although, while it was installing it said Prometheus-3). So I figured no big deal. I’ll still be able to run the iso and cso that I’m playing atm b/c they aren’t the newest (star ocean and Valkyrie profile lenneth) and they were playing prefect before that I applied the patch and it wouldn’t hurt. Turns out now that they don’t launch (no disc inserted err), but my emus still launch as does irshell. So I changed the iso modes but none of them work, not even the OE noUMD, or sony noUMD. What gives? If I update to 5.50 GEN D3 final, will I still be able to run the majority of home brew?
Yep, 5.50 GEN-D3 has pretty much the same compatibility of 5.00 M33-6 when it comes to homebrew so you can upgrade safely
I am on 5.5 prometheus can i upgrade to 5.5 prometheus v4?
Yep, you can upgrade without any problems.
It work great however some of my save games are corrupted even though i backup them…rather sad
So I think I updated to 5.50 GEN D3 final (b/c that’s what the program that I launched said it was doing, but in system settings it says 5.50 GEN-B full), but I have the same problem as above, where i get a message when I try to launch an ISO or CSO. No matter if I change the UMD driver, I get the message about no disk inserted. I am launching from irshell 5.2. What is wrong? I want to try and launch from ISO tool but I can’t figure out how to install it (too many sub folders, making it confusing). But on the plus side my gba emu still works.
Thanks again, for any help.
Download the 5.50 GEN patch for iRShell 5.02, extract and copy the folder to PSP/GAME then run it from your XMB.
Yeah I did that (irshell 5.02 and patch) and I installed prom-4 for GEN-D. I can launch irshell and home brew from that. I also installed a prx into seaplugins folder called NOUMD, but I don’t remember if i added a line in the VSH text file. Is it a bug or did I fuck something up?
You can go to the recovery menu (restart your PSP and hold R while booting) and enable the plugin there (no need to use the VSH txt file)
I have a couple of questions for you guys. Would it be better to update to Prome-4 on a PSP 3000 using CFW 5.03 GEN-C or a PSP 2000 using CFW 5.50 GEN D-3? Also, is there a version of popsloader that is compatible with a PSP 3000 updated to Prome-4 from 5.03 GEN-C? My ultimate goal is to have a PSP capable of running both PSP and PSX ISOs. Thanks a lot.
i was trying to run Lego Pirates Of the Caribbean, it loads, screen turned red then black, froze and the psp turned off….how do i fix this? i tried switching btw sony n M33, and went to the recovery menu n switched around the 1.5 and x.xx too…..still no luck =[
I just installed Prom-4 from GEN-D3 and it corrupted some of my older save data… what have I done wrong? any way to fix this?
hi, i’m using prom-v4 on my psp 3000 right now, n i was wondering if this is the latest version for my psp or can i use the 6.20 pro-B6 on my psp?
Yes, you can install 6.20 Pro-B6 but you will have to install 6.20 OFW then run the installer for 6.20 Pro-B6.
help.can’t install the 5.03 prome-4.the link given is prome-3…
Sorry about that, I’ll be updating the links in a bit
the link on 5.03 gen c is still prom-3 not prom-4
The links now point to the v4 of Prometheus
thanx for the update
is the 5.03 really prome-4 or prome-3v4?
Prome-4 is basically a patched Prome-3.
thanx it worked on my psp
hi sylverblade.. im using 5.03 gen-c prome 4..well the problem is when i restart it,it always turn to its original cfw 5.03..can i ask you if i can still upgrade it to 5.50 gen d3 coz i think that cfw will solve my problem..im using psp 2000 japan actually..so that i have no problems on playing monster hunter portable 3rd..ill wait for ur reply..
You can only install 5.50 GEN-D3 if your PSP is hackable. Please check out the Dummy’s Guide to PSP CFW for more info.
It happens with evry iso
Looks sounds like a bad flash of 5.50 GEN-D3. Download the XGen Updater on this page and run the installer again (make sure you select flash 5.50 GEN-D3 and not 5.50 OFW otherwise you’ll have to stick with non permanent CFW if you don’t have a pandora battery). After that, install the prometheus module on this page and try your ISOs again.
Um, I ran the installer, but when I pressed X it says cpoy file error…. install aborted. What’s the problem?
i installed 5.50 Prometheus version on my PSP Slim. here is the link http://atmaxplorer.com/2010/06/install-psp-custom-firmware-5-50-prometheus/
is that ok if im goin to install this Prometheus-4 for 5.50 GEN-D3?
Yes you can install prome-4 on top of that.
will older games still work if I install prometheus-4? and do I need to make a backup of my psp game save data?
Same as ken’s question. Will my older psp games still work if I use Prometheus-4 add-on? And will my save files be corrupted if I use this? My psp’s current version is 5.00m33-6.
mine is “5.50 prometheus“. how to upgrade it to 5.5 prome V4. where is the download link for the 5.5 prometheus..
and thank you for reply.
I currenty have 3.71 m33-2. Atm, i’m updating to 5.00 M33-6.
I was planning to get 5.50 GEN-D3, to play some of the lastest games.
Should I just go with prometheus-4 for 5.00? Will it brick my psp if i have that “M33-6” part?
Or update to 5.50 GEN-D3, and get prometheus-4 for 5.50 GEN-D3?
What is the difference?
I think I found my answer.. I need to be using ISO tool since I will be having 5.00 M33-6. Am I doing this right?
The download links for Gen D3 are broken (file not found).
Whoops. Replaced with mediafire links
