Noob Help.. New to PS3.
i have been looking into the forums from the time i decided to get myself the PS3.
Unfortunately, its become a needle in a hay stack.
too many FW versions, too many threads, i dont know where to begin.
i am planning to get PS3 in 2 weeks time, all i get here is the PS3 Slim 320 GB + Move (Bundle).
I dont know, what FW version it will come with.
can i JB it, and install a CFW without much hassle to load games from backup rather than the dvd's??
PS: i am not sure if this is the right place..
i would appreciate any light shed on the dark alley. :cry:
Get your PS3. As long as it isn't on 3.56 or higher firmware, install kmeaw 3.55 CFW via recovery mode. Once on kmeaw's, pick a backup manager and start backing up your games.
You mean like move or play from the ISO's?

If you need to FTP/copy games to your PS3, I'd suggest looking around as there's plenty of threads talking about how to do it.
Soz Chesh, i apologize,
i didnt mean about piracy, backup, all i know is iso's. Sorry.
I got my PS3, finally. It has the 3.50 CFW..
any suggestions what i do next?
You'll want to follow instructions here.
Oh and definitions took me some time too.
You're on 3.50 OFW
OFW = Official FirmWare
CFW = Custom FirmWare
follow that guide and you'll want to install Multiman 1.16. Search you'll find the .pkg file.
also install BDEMU-355KM.pkg This is the very one I used.
Install and use Blackb0x ftp if you need to transfer your backups to and from your computer. Space gets tight in the ps3 even with a bigger HDD.
That's it. Simple.
Oh and remember, you won't be able to access PSN any longer. At least not for now or possibly a while.
I just blocked internet access on mine altogether. I typed in random things for proxy server so I'm still connected via network but it won't connect outside of my network.
Hello, I am familiar with installing custom firmwares on my psp and, i've tried to install CFW 3.55 , but it won't install, im guessing cuz im on OFW 4.00, please help. (80GB Fat Model)
