    Default help on recovery menu

    ok, this was in another post but no one really gave a direct answer..
    this is the information:
    i have a psp 3001 with cfw (temporary) 5.03 m33-6
    i used chickhen r2 and cfw enabler 3.50

    i read some posts and they said that gen c is better? is that true?
    the main reason im asking is because i want to install the cw cheat but the only way to do that is to open up the recovery menu
    people say to press select for the psp 3000 with cfw but when i press it, the menu opens but there is no menu for the recovery

    whats better? gen-c or m33-6?
    since i already have m33-6, and if gen-c is better.. should i change it? if so, how would i uninstall it?
    i know that when i fully turn off (hold on/off button for 3+seconds) my psp, the cfw is gone since the psp 3000 goes back to OFW. but, when i do that, is the cfw fully gone? or its still there and i just have to enable it?

    sorry for all the questions, i would like to know how these really work.
    i've been reading alot of posts and tuts about the psp and i have learned alot but it seems i can't find a way to open the recovery menu.

    thankyou ^^

    lol neewb

    You mean 5.03 GEN-?
    Not everything is M33 you know

    CFE came from GEN
    From what ive heard.. a couple of guys reverse engineered GEN and claimed it as their own work [correct me if im wrong guys]

    Personally i like GEN
    Also for recovery menu for GEN, press select while in the XMB menu and the second or third last option should be recovery menu.

    problem solved =p

    before you start calling me a noob, google 5.03 m33-6... it does exist
    my psp 3001 is using that cfw right now, and no, im not imagining it
    that cfw isn't made from dax but from xenogears & becus25
    i heard that someone else made it and just called it m33.. but thats the name

    also, i don't have gen.. so when i press select, there is no recovery item under the select menu. thats why im asking how to open it through my version
    also, im planning to put my psp under gen. how would i change it from m33 to gen?

    its a edited CFW

    @k4n3 since the CFW you have installed its uncommon and edited it's hard to help you with it but, i recommend you to install 5.03 GEN-C [Download]

    in GEN-C you can access Recovery Menu

    i have no experience installing CFW's through HEN, CFE enabler... so follow Leo's guide

    well thanks guys!
    my psp is now 5.03 gen-a (full)

    but heres another question thats off-topic
    i installed cwcheats (the main reason why i wanted the recovery menu)
    everything went smoothly, i changed the old cheat.db file with a new updated file
    when in the game and when i hold select for 3-5sec the menu opens.. but there is a small problem.. when i click cheats, there are no cheats at all. on my friends psp 2004 (we have the same game to test out the cheat if its working) i can see cheats but on my psp, there are no cheats.
    what am i doing wrong? i followed the tutorial on this website
    CW cheat device tutorial
    i did everything correctly.. am i doing anything wrong?

    No i think GEN-B has less chance of brick then GEN-C does.

    no you can't update it to that version because your PSP does not supports Full CFW's, but you can update your PSP to 5.03 GEN-C which is better than 5.03 GEN-A
