If you want to use your own pnach from "/dev_usbXXX/PNACH/[CRC].pnach", you must disable WideScreen because when you apply a pnach to the iso it change the CRC.

(2) I downloaded every MD5 for PS2 & PSX games from It's inside ManaGunZ folder 'USRDIR/sys/'.
For PSP backups, it come from Every CRC32 are saved in 'USRDIR/sys/PSP_CRC.txt'.

(3) The plugin Manager will deal with every sprx inside "/dev_hdd0/plugins" ONLY. If this folder do not exist, the option is not available.
