    Following the 4.83 Official Firmware update for the PS3, not only did it close the PS3Xploit's for installing CFW on 4.82 and also the HAN Exploit, but it also means its time for a round of Custom Firmware updates for excising CFW user's. So if your first experience on CFW was on 4.82 on your on 4.82 CFW, then all you do is update to a 4.83 CFW of your choice and install the pup the same way you would an official update from a USB STORAGE DEVICE, but of course with the CFW PUP. This release of 4.83 FERROX COBRA CFW from developer @Alexander is a Cobra CFW, so it has all the features of a Standard CFW, plus contains the special Cobra payload which provides background running plugin support, PS3/PS2/PS1/PSP ISO Support some of the features this payload provides, (note standard CFW can install MAMBA and replicate many COBRA features) All details of this release can be found in the Translated notes found below from developer Alexander. ​

      You both are attempting to install cfw on unpatched ofw. If you are on 4.82 and you are 100% sure your console is cfw capable, run ps3xploit and THEN install this. If you are on 4.83 you need to use a hardware flasher

      Did you check the MD5 of the PUP file after you downloaded it? Sometimes during the download it can become corrupted this is why its important to check this when downloading files.

      Also the USB Flash drive both of your are using could have some bad sectors where the PUP is stored so freshly reformat the USB Flash drive you are using on PC to FAT32 MBR and try again after verifying the MD5 of the PUP file.

      FAST MD5 is s a good free app to use as it will compare the hashes for you. The MD5 of this PUP can be found at the start of the thread.

      If the PS3 is not exploited then it wont even allow you to start to install you just get an error message > "No applicable update data found" or "This data is not compatible or cannot be used on this system"

      EDIT: Only a PS3 on 3.55 OFW and below can install a CFW PUP file without patching the flash, this is why you used to downgrade the PS3 to this FW version.

      Need a bit more info as your original post suggested just a corrupted PUP file.

      Which Firmware is your PS3 currently on? CFW or OFW? and it's version? 4.83? just to clear thinks up, then we'll take it from there.

      If as you have suggested that 4.83 OFW has been installed over CFW then then the PS3 would need to be xploited again to get the CFW back and if this is 4.83 OFW its on then the only way to do this at the minute is with a Hardware flasher.
