[FAKE?] Upgrading from OFW to CFW like to OFW
[FAKE?] Upgrading from OFW to CFW like to OFW –
Source. Wanna rewrite it more clearly:
What we have:
PS3 with CFW, ChaosAirBringer and ps3ita installed;
PS3 with OFW, which version is same as PS3 with CFW have.
For ex., first PS3 have CFW v.4.40 and the second one have OFW v.4.40.
What we want:
Upgrade our PS3 with OFW to CFW, simple like we would upgrading it to OFW.
Actions on PS3 with OFW:
Obtain the console ID and the MAC-address. Note it somethere.
Actions on PS3 with CFW:
With the help of ChaosAirBringer and the ps3ita, edit MAC-adress and console ID according to another PS3 have. Save it's native console ID and MAC-address to restore later!!!
Check out that these programs done their duty!
Now, we should reattach hdd from PS3 with OFW to PS3 with CFW.
Power on the PS3 with CFW. If it not wants to format hdd - that's all right!
Now on PC, preparing USB stick to upgrading with XMB:
Download CFW firmware, which version should be higher; rename it to PS3UPDAT.PUP
create directories PS3\UPDATE on the USB stick and copy here the PS3UPDAT.PUP
unplug it from PC and plug it to PC3 with CFW, which also with another PS3's hdd attached.
Now, let's start to upgrade PC3-with-CFW with CFW
Choose the upgrading from USB and go on:
when it complete the copying of firmware from USB to HDD to 100% -
- after next screen appears - deattach the power cable of your CFW PS3.
Reattach the hdd from PS3 with CFW back to PS3 with OFW and power last one on.
The firmware installation should be continuing, because the FW is already checked on your CFW PS3.
Is that true? - the installation process will be continuing?
That action - "deattach the power cable of your CFW PS3" at the stage after firmware is copied - isn't this a stage when firmware is writting?! - then it is 100% fake and this action provides brick.
I found ChaosAirBringer and ps3ita by myself. If anyone knows another programs to change MAC-address and console ID - please share their calls.
He did it with PS3s of same models and it is unknown if it working with PS3s of different models.
I have CECH-3008B code 1D v.4.31 and i have no suitable case to try that. I can't find a good man, who will do that. Because everyone are keeping in mind the way of downgrade and flesher.
Have anyone suitable situation to prove or to disprove it?

FAKE, you can't recover console ID from an OFW console without a flasher anymore, Sony patched the PSN exploit.
Yeah, i missed console ID obtaining from OFW... But this not means that this is fake.
Maybe a harder than wireshark way exists how to find it out...
