    Hello guys, i'm just bought a ps3 CECH-2501 with 150$. Luckily its still sealed by Sony
    I checked the firmware and its show me 4.70, nothing more, the Coldboot still like Original, not like someone has Rebug (saw on youtube). Menu haves MultiMan and Package Installer. Yes, its mean my ps3 currently CFW, but idk which exactly CFW installed.
    I also want to install new HDD, curently has 160gb hdd.

    I check many tutorial but now idk which to follow, because it's high risk and i'm never used a ps3 CFW before.
    Last time used an ps3-3001b with CobraODE but cfw is totally diffirence.
    Please help and forgive me for bad english. Thank you, all!

    Been a while since i've last done this but i think you install rogero downgrader then install OFW 3.55 then install the CFW of your choice. Most popular one is REBUG.

    Is there a reason why rogero downgrader? I thought all the downgrader were the same thing?

    And why use rogero-dg to end up with rebug CFW instead of the rebug downgrader?

    Once on CFW, You can just update to any CFW from the XMB, if you are downgrading you need to QA flag first. No need for any downgrader PUPs or 3.55.

    Yea I use the toggle qa package. But the downgrader method works, and I was only wandering why use one brand of downgrader, and a completely different brand of CFW, I know the toggle qa package is the fastest way though.

    Go to this link, and download the CFW PUP File, and put it on a USB like this “USB:/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP”
    As long as you go to a higher CFW, and the MD5SUM hashes match the one on the website and in the name of the file, there shouldn’t be any problems.

    Well this user wants to update, not downgrade, and his post is almost a week old, so I think he is well sorted by now.

    But yeah, you could use any downgrader PUP really in most cases, as you have to install another few PUPs after it makes no difference, although for some reason Rogeros downgrader is suggested more and I think has a better success rate in some situations, I do not think its exactly the same as the Rebug downgrader in every way, but I could be wrong..

    I didn’t even think to look when the OP was made, I would imagine a weeks worth of trial and error would get it on CFW. And I know rogero downgrader is recommended, that’s how I did it, but I never understood why, I don’t know what the differences could be if any.
