TN Hen: Should you update to OFW 6.31?
A few days ago Total_Noob announced he would probably port his Hen for 6.31. For some reasons, this seemed to confuse a lot of people, and people are wondering if they should upgrade to 6.31.
The short answer is: NO, if you want a hacked PSP, NEVER upgrade, that’s the basic rule.
We know that the kernel vulnerability exists on all firmwares up to 6.31. We also know that Total_Noob started working on the Hen for both 6.20 and 6.31. Nobody can predict the future, and we can’t say if the hen will be released for 6.31 or 6.20 first, or both at the same time (although Total_Noob recently stated that he would release it for 6.20 first, and then work on 6.3x depending on Sony’s reaction).
Whatever happens, people who stay on firmware 6.20 will have the choice to update to 6.31 if needed. People who upgrade to 6.31 now won’t have the possibility to downgrade to 6.20, and could get sc***.
So, whatever happens, staying at 6.20 is the best possible choice for now. Actually, staying at the lowest firmware possible is always the best possible choice you can make if your goal is homebrews and your psp is not yet hacked.
People who are only interested in playing online and play official games are of course not targeted by this post, but I don’t expect such people to read my blog anyways 😛
