I like your sense of humor. In case someone doesn't get it, Noobz was
the group that released the downgrader he used to put 1.50 on his PSP.

Yes, KeyCleaner will fix PSPs downgraded in that manner. That is
specifically what KeyCleaner was written to do - fix the simple
problems created by the older downgrading methods. IdStorage Manager
was created to help people deal with more complex issues, and for
developers for easier experimentation with the idstorage keys.
You should go ahead and fix the keys. Once you do, KeyCleaner will
report all the keys as good, but the key 5 is Chilly Willy patched.
That is fine - don't unpatch key 5. KeyCleaner allows people to
unpatch key 5, which you can do if you are running a custom IPL, or if
you are running HomebrewENabler on official firmware. When you upgrade
to 3.80 M33/3.90 M33, the M33 Updater will automatically take care of
key 5 for you. Key 5 is the ONLY key the M33 Updater will handle,
which is why it doesn't work on your PSP right now (because you have
bad keys 4, 5, and 6).
