    I would like to comment that there are reports of games not working any more and freezings happening with this update.

    You've been warned so use at your own risk.

    I came here to confirm this. From the sound of things the C update switches the ISO driver to something aside from the M33 one which is what is usually used, although there are other problems reported.

    One final thing to report, it seems the GEN team is working on GEN-D now to fix all the bugs in GEN-C.
