A big maintenance Playstation Store has caused the blockage of access to
the Playstation Store for owners of firmware 5.00 M33-A and 5.02GEN.
Fortunately, the Custom Firmware 5.50GEN is safe.
Sony has today made a big maintenance Playstation Store, which prohibits
access to M33 Custom Firmwares. Is this a coincidence or is it still a
"security update", which is only to try to prevent access to the owners of
It must be said that the operation has succeeded, since all users of a
Custom Firmware 5.00 M33 can now access the most Playstation Store.
Indeed, when the connection to the Playstation Store, it shows that you do
not have the latest firmware version of the PSP.
However, the firmware 5.00 M33 had circumvented the problem with the file
"version.txt", which says the latest version at Playstation Network. But Sony
has managed to check the version of the PSP in other ways, and this
module "version.txt" becomes unnecessary.
Good thing to know is: from a Custom Firmware 5.50 GEN-A, you can always
connect without problems Playstation Store, it does not insult you when you
login. It is therefore possible to switch to 5.50GEN-a to access the
Playstation Store, especially since a-b 5.50GEN arrives today with a package
of new features. Unfortunately, the Custom Firmware 5.02GEN-A can not
access the contents of the PSS, with the same error in 5.00 M33.
If Sony has acted voluntarily, then their eternal struggle against the piracy
continues in force. The company is punishing the honest owners of Custom
Firmwares who want to connect to the Playstation Store for the content
téléchagrer legal, and often paying.
