From CFW to OFW –
I'm tired of not having multiplayer on my Ps3, so i started thinking about upgrading the FW. Whats the best possible way to ditch CFW and go to OFW, do I need to format first?
Thanks in advance!
Just sign-in on PSN and it will offer the update for you.

No one really knows for sure. If it makes you feel safer, go ahead. Edit: you will still be able to see your homebrew apps, you just won't be able to launch them.
i think its better you delete all of your homebrew before doing that also before update to 3.65 if you are on 3.55 kmeaw or waninkoko just instal the OFW 3.55 and then update to 3.65 i don't know if it will brick your PS3 if you go directly from 3.55CFW to 3.65OFW but its better to be safetly
So it would be safer if I delete all my homebrew, right?
Oh and I forgot, is it better to go to 3.55 OFW and then to update to 3.65?
Are there any good tutorials to delete all the traces from cfw/homebrew?
The best way to delete all traces is to format your HDD but you can make a backup of your saves before.
2-format the HDD
3-update to 3.65OFW
eh, if you really wanted to get 'creative' you could delete homebrew then run something like eraseme which creates a fake log or wipehistory which removes all traces of any activity from your ps3 logs. afaik no one has been banned for having 'leftovers' from 3.55< so you might as well just update casually.
I wouldn't go as far as formatting the drive. I would delete all homebrew/backups and the folders they create, go to OFW 3.55. Boot up recovery menu and rebuild databases. Then upgrade to OFW3.65. Then prior to logging on to PSN or any internet activity, I would pop in a few original game disks, play for a while to look a little more legit. (Apart from your PSN account been dormant for an obvious while, LOL)
Thanks for all the good feedback! I shall give it a go, because I don't think the QA Flagg will help restore PSN on a CFW Ps3.
