You don't have to put the PS3 into recovery mode you can just install the update straight from the system update menu selecting update from storage media.

my ps3 said data error occurred. what i did wrong?????????
I only have my one PS3 Slim at OFM 3.55. If I install this custom firmware is there anyway to get back to the official Sony 3.55. Also if a new patch came out, would it brick my console or could I just update to that new firmware and get online?
good questions, i was wondering the same thing.

Don't Feed the Trolls.
Just simply reinstall the official version of firmware downloaded from SONY's website.

People that downgraded lost the ability to play blurays. If they upgrade to the OFW 3.55, will they get that ability back? Or is it necessary to go through the work around discovered a little while back?
Thanks for the help.
