For those who missed it, an updated PRXDecrypter and PSPCipher by hrimfaxi reportedly allows the same, and the latest PSARDump by coyotebean also now supports Sony's PSPgo console.
The 5.03 Prometheus PSP CFW above is intended for PSP 2000 - TA088v3 and PSP 3000 users, with more details on the release available http://bbs.a9vg.com/read.php?tid=1505568.
Why do they even bother? Why don't they just release 620CFW already?
It's because 6.20 is a much harder nut to crack than previous OFWs and may be impossible to create a CFW version from. Its much easier to simply update older, proven stable CFW versions to play newer games.
