upgrading hard drive with CFW
upgrading hard drive with CFW –
Just about to stick a new 500gb drive in my PS3. Im on cfw 3.55 should I go back to ofw 3.55 or does it make no difference? any advice help please.
I'm suprised noone has answered yet. I do not know what you can get away with doing...but me personally...when my 640GB replacement drive arrives...I'm going to revert back to OFW 3.55 BEFORE installing the new HDD! Its easy to do and I personally don't want to take any unnecessary risks.

In my fat 500gb upgrade i didnt have to do a thing but install the new one and format via ps3 which had kmeaw installed on it.
My slim one tho is a different story when going from 160 to 1tb.

Thanks for your help. Ive got a phat 60gb so it looks like I dont need to do anything! Just ordered a new 640gb 5400rpm ! At least now ill be able to fit more than two games on the internal!
Sorry, but I'm just gonna steal this thread if that's okay with you. I have CFW 3.55 (kmaew) and about to install a new hdd. Before going back to 3.55 OFW, should i uninstall multiman and blackb0x (if possible)?
And how do I go from 3.55 CFW to 3.55 OFW?
- Just get the 3.55 OFW to a USB and install that way (just like installing kmaew)
1. Go back to OFW 3.55 from Kmaew 3.55 CFW
3. Backup (backup utility)
4. Replace HDD
5. Install 3.55 OFW (Do i have to install 3.55 OFW again or?)
6. Restore backup (backup utility)
7. Install CFW 3.55 Kmeaw, Multiman, blackb0x from XMB.
Also, does it backup the games on the internal hard drive?
Not sure why people say you need to go back to OFW. I've never been on OFW except for when I was on 3.41 which came with my PS3 160 slim. I was on Kmaew 3.55 when doing this. I backed up my HD with the back up utility. Replaced the drive and formated when it asked. I then just used the USB stick that had the Kmaew 3.55 CFW to install the Software and restored my data from the data utility. I have 20+ games on the internal and all work perfect with latest mulit-Man.
And yes it does backup everything on the HD including your backups.
I installled a new HDD with KMEAW last night. No problems.
You do not need to go back to OFW to upgrade your hard drive. Just FTP off all the stuff you want to save from your old one, plug the new on in, and FTP it all back.
Then run the fix_permissions tool.
did this last week. had no problems at all.
