Which OFM is best for loading CFW?
Which OFM is best for loading CFW? –
I am lucky enough to have a father who likes to pick up things and then leave them behind for something else. It's hardly a flaw because he always has something on the go.
Long story short, he has a fat PS3 that he tried to play a game on once and it asked him to update the firmware. The lucky part is that he did not have the thing hooked up to the internet and didn't want to spend the time to do that. He got it as a Christmas gift not last year but the year before so the system is close to two years old and never updated. That suggests an old, CFW-able original firmware.
The BEST part of this is that he wants to give it to me. I, personally, have a 3.56ofw and waiting it out while all of these new games come out that require an update.
I'm thinking to myself, What should I do with my fathers PS3??
I am a noob but I do not mind learning. I can jtag and I understand the idea behind flashing (ie: xbx, routers, DS, wii are all flashed) so please, no holds barred. Give me your best
Thanks in advance,
dnt go above ofw 3.55
oh also your story makes no sense. if a game needed an update, the update is on the disc, no need for the inetrnet
Thanks. What I mean is that the firmware requires an update to play online (for example). If that is on the game disc, I have never seen it.
to find out what fw your ps3 is running go into settings-system settings-system info on your xmb.

if it's below fw 3.55 download any of the kmeaw 3.55cfw's there are loads to choose from, I am running RazorX's PS3Ultimate black edition with 3.72spoofer and the latest multiman, and I have had no problems.
Hmmm. Is there any reason not to upgrade as far as 3.55OFW? Is there any good real reason I would want to keep it at a lower FW if the main purpose is to play my backups?
You can now jailbreak your system with 3.56 apparently. DemonHades just released a custom firmware for 3.56.

its real, but its only meant for slims that cants go lower than 3.56, there are no backup managers that work witnh it as yet so u can only use homebrew and not game backups.
so basically its useless at the minute. upgrade to 3.55 if you wanna play backups.
