PS3 SLIM 250gb on 2.85 OFW, what should I proceed to next?
PS3 SLIM 250gb on 2.85 OFW, what should I proceed to next? –
Hi guys, just bought a 250gb ps3 slim CECH2002B, bought it new in a deal. Checked the firmware it's on 2.85, did a lot of reading on the internet, found many things about jailbreaking.
I was wondering if you guys would help me with the firmware that i should proceed with 3.41? 3.55? what backup managers to use( I've read about the blackbox ftp method n stuff). I have platinum version of uncharted 2. and resistance (the first one) in original blu-ray format. Would I be able to play backups without the original blu-rays?
And also what would the best method be in terms of updating it, do i go into recovery, or from xmb? I'm a complete noob about ps3 guys (but technically sound otherwise :P ) so any help would be much appreciated. I want to be able to play backups, I'm not too interested in playing online.
Install oficial firmware 3.55 first. You can get it from download section. Then from recovery install CFW 3.55 Kmeaw, after that you need to install:
- BDEMU 2
- Multiman 2.01
After that copy your backups to internal PS3 hdd with blackbox opened on PS3 and let`s say Total Commander on PC. Serach for tutorials here on the forum how to do it. That`s all.
Thanks for the reply, yeah I have looked at a lot of threads and tutorials here. I was only confused as some of the people here are on 3.41 and some on 3.55, so i was only confused as to which would be better for me as I'm on a really really old firmware, so I can have the liberty of knowing the best things about each of them.
Also, should I keep the blu-ray games that I already own or will the backups alone work? Do i need to look into the QA flag thing?
You mentioned that you bought a NEW PS3 SLIM WITH OFW 2.85.........????
PS3 SLIM 250gb on 2.85 OFW
Thats impossible, slims didn't come with linux we know that and linux was removed on ps3's by fw 3.15.....................
yeah thats weird might be one of the very first consoles that came out....

you still need a disc in the drive to play bit i can be any original game. as long as its an original gale and os recognized by your ps3 you should be able to run whatever backup you want... k welll some of them dp run without a disc but uts always recommended that u have one in the drive as it guarantees them to work
I'm black deal with it ;D
Rep+ if I helped you
Yeah, I thought that was wierd as well, that's what it says in the system information, it keeps prompting me for a system update, but how do i take a screenshot to convince you :P ? probably take one from my fone ehh? Yes and its brand new, bought just 3 days back in australia.
So going with 3.55 cfw would be best? And whats the deal with the 2.85 linux?

3.21 removed linux for PHAT ps3's, SLIMs never had it to begin with. A 5 second googley search returns - PlayStation 3 system software - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It's cool though, you're set for all the Scene jazz. Just follow what cat% said, that's all you really need to know to start playing backups. Also, be sure you put all your games in a folder called "GAMES" or "GAMEZ" on the ps3 HDD
Hi guys,sorry for bumping this thread again. Here is the pic attached with the firmware version that i mentioned.
I'm going to be installing kmeaw 3.55. Also, If i need can i go back to a clean system, that is an unhacked system to play online?
And is it normal my ps3 drive makes a grinding sound when reading the disks?

Yes. If you choose to, you can simply update either the same way you installed 3.55 using an ofw 3.66+ .pup instead, or via the online update. However if you do update past 3.55, you will never be able to go back, and will need to buy a new ps3 if you want to jailbreak again.
