Backport 6.72 Firmware Games To Firmware 5.05

Recommended Posts

Well known developer and PlayStationHaX admin @zecoxao has posted instructions that will allow you to play games that require a higher firmware on your hacked console running firmware 5.05.

This is great for those of you not wanting to update to the unstable 6.72 HEN.

 

Not sure why zecoxao decided to not post this guide on the forum, perhaps he was worried about copyright problems, so I won't post it here and instead just link to where he posted it:

To stop piracy I assume, but as the 6.72 HEN has been released and people can play pirate games on that firmware, then there is no need to keep backporting private anymore.

I could be wrong, but I don't believe anyone sat on this.

 

The 6.72 exploit was needed to dump the new games and get around the encryption. Only by doing that could the back-porting be possible.

 

So... chicken and egg scenario it seems. I don't think this could have happened in any other order, we weren't seeing these newer decrypted game dumps prior to the 6.72 exploit going public.
