    Hello everyone, I have a slim ps3 on 4.82, minimum firmware 3.50, and i decided to install a cfw on my ps3.

    I have the right files on my usb, rightmost plug, then went to this site: ps3xploit.com/writer/index_nor.html

    I clicked on "initilize operation", and then it said "Exploit Initialization SUCCESS...! ; You can now proceed to patch the NOR Flash Memory!

    But I'm not sure what to do now, it didn't turn off on itself and when I did it myself nothing seemeed to have changed.

    Have you tried to install cfw because it doesnt change anything on xmb. Download a cfw rename it to PS3UPDAT . On the a usb you need to format it to fat32 then create a folder named PS3 then go into the folder and create another one named UPDATE put the PS3UPDAT in there now go to your ps3 plug the usb in and update from xmb

    The page has 2 buttons right. one is to initialize and other to patch. You didnt press the patch button. And even after patching, you wont notice any change when it restarts; it will look same as OFW.

    As you have mentioned "exploit initialization success", then obviously the next step is to click next button PATCH NOR FLASH MEMORY. (do make sure you have flash_482.hex file in usb drive root.). Once done it will show "success" or just shutdown automatically (dont remember which one).

    And then ofcousre you install a CFW as mentioned above, (a 4.82 CFW)


    Note: I would advice you to make a DUMP of your NOR first and verify it since it looks like you haven't gone through the instructions properly.

    Oh, I don't know how I missed that. But I'm not sure if I need any more files to do that, on the USB I only have a PS3 folder with the UPDATE folder and the cfw file, and the hex file on the root. Do I need anything else?

    Nope. thats all you need. For CFW installation make sure the folders and pup file naming is correct and are in capital letters. And I use a UPS to make sure power outage doesn't occur while doing this.

    NOTE: I strongly advice you to make 1 or 2 dumps of your existing NOR before attempting this

    Can you link me an easy guide? I really don't want to brick it, and I don't know which guide to follow.

    You should use the steps I posted some time ago.
    Don't omit any detail. ;)

    Thanks but, do I need to start from scratch to follow this guide? Like, deleting the folders that I already have on my USB drive?

    Delete folders on USB? There is no such requirement.
    The only requirement for a USB device is that it contains a FAT32 partition using MBR.

    But if you follow my steps, you won't need to use the USB drive anyway for patching the Flash memory. Start from the beginning of the steps.

    I believe patching and installing CFW is as simple as it gets; the developers have done an excellent job with the software and instructions.

    Anyway, here is some video. He uses a FAT PS3 with NAND. And he is running server on smartphone, which is not a necessary step; instead USE ps3xploit.com, it works well.

    THIS IS OLD but the procedure is more or less the same; the current pages might look a little different.

    THIS IS ONLY TO GIVE YOU A ROUGH IDEA OF HOW ITS DONE.

    Place the arrow on the link, press the triangle button to make the menu appear & choose the Save entry.
    Of course if you use local files instead of ps3xploit.com, you must have a copy of the jpg file in the right folder.
    If you don't know what you are doing, it's better to use ps3xploit.com.

    I decided to follow the guide you posted on http://www.psx-place.com/threads/an...riter-or-ps3xploit-han-3-0.16767/#post-108103 , everything went smoothly until I got to the part where i have to dump the NOR, the second step. It always says "Exploit Initialization FAILED!"
    Is it supposed to be like this or did I do something wrong? I've tried 7 times already, deleting cookies and cache too.

    Nevermind, I got it working.
    I'm at the part where I have to download Python, but I don't know which one to download out of these: photo_2018-11-03_12-31-12.jpg

    I have Windows 7.

    Get python 2.7 only.
    Use the msi installer version either x86 or x86-64 depending on your pc. x86 should work in any case.

    Alright, thanks, I've installed it.
    What do I have to do now exactly? Sorry for the questions, it's the first time I've used something like this.

    You need to get a flash memory dump file (we will assume the file is called dump.hex for the instructions below), copy it in the pyps3checker folder then open a command prompt in that folder & type either:

    checker.py dump.hex

    or

    python checker.py dump.hex
