      **************HOW TO INSTALL***************
      Your ps3 must be jailbroken or must have just been flashed with a hardware flasher to install cfw.

      Make sure your usb is formatted to fat 32.
      1. Create a folder on your usb called PS3. (in capitals)
      2. Inside the PS3 folder make another folder called UPDATE. (in capitals)
      3. Put the PS3UPDAT.PUP file inside the UPDATE folder.
      4. Put your usb into your ps3 and go to the settings column, go to system update and update via storage media.​

      **************GOING ONLINE***************

      On Standard CEX CFW's
      1. start ps3.
      2. Use any homebrew apps your gonna use like multiman.
      3. load game to xmb or put disc in.
      4. Open psn patch and disable cfw system calls. (psn patch does the same job as ps ninja, deletes history at exit)
      5. start game and/or sign in.​

      Don't hate cuz I've been on psn with cfw for 5 years and never been console banned, up to you how you want to do it. If you have problem loading a game from hard drive, open multiman, highlight the game and press triangle for options, select bd mirror and internal options then select permissions, then press x on the game to load it to xmb (must have a game disc in).

      Visit the overflow page for updated and new packages such as my xmb editor.

    • IMPORTANT NOTE: I only use facebook, ngu and portal centric, psx place and sometimes psn. I only ever go by the name Bobby Downgrades, if you come accross the name on a site other than those it's probably not me and if the name is not "Bobby Downgrades" IT'S NOT ME. If in doubt contact me on facebook or through​

      I believe I had this issue some time ago and forgot about it, I will make a patch and push the update package to the whats new for download directly to the ps3.
      Thanks for letting me know.

      hi guys, my ps3 update stop @ 31%. on this forums i found cfw 4.83 overflo. my ps3 is now alive back on track. thanks for psx-place forums.....
    9. Bobby_Downgrades

      I have uploaded an updater pkg file, here is how to do it.

      Go to the whats new in the psn column,
      find and select overflow updater for 4.83 cfw.
      Once selected the pkg will download, install and then run automatically.
      It will go black screen for a few seconds and then the ps3 will restart,
      that will solve the issue,
      thanks again for the heads up.

      Hey Guys

      Having a slight problem.
      Updating fron 8.42 to 8.43. Not 100% sure on what version on 8m8m42 is running but aftrr trying tue different 8.43 (FERROX AND COBRA) Im met with an 8002F997 error! If I try and update through the service menu it tells me data is Currupt with another 800 code. Anyone else had this or know why Im getting it?
    11. Xploiting
    12. Bobby_Downgrades
      What version is your ps3 on ?
      Is it already jailbroken or on the standard son* firmware ?
      what is the exact error code ?
    13. Xploiting
      Hi Bobby_Downgrades,
      Thanks for looking into this.
      Its currently running FERROX LITE 8.42 CFW on a PHAT PS3
      Error code when updating through XMB is 8002f997.
      When I try to update through service menu error code is 8002f285.
      It points to a data corruption but its happening on any 8.43 update I try to install.
      I have also tried different usb sticks as well and I have also tried rebuilding my file system through the service menu but still same out come.
      Thanks in advance!
    14. Bobby_Downgrades
      Those errors seem to me like some sort of corruption, either with usb ports or hard drive, possibly even blue ray cfw.
      Have you used a no blue ray cfw on the system before ?
      If no, I would recommend trying that or perhaps even a no Bluetooth cfw.
      Do not worry as if it installs you have found the problem and blue ray or Bluetooth can be updated again in future (not like ps4).

      No never used a No BR before or Bluetooth (both working fine on system at moment)

      I have been thinking for a while about installing a larger HDD. Would this update work on a fresh HDD (not work as in get round the error, but in general would it install and update on a PS3)
    16. Xploiting
      Ok so after a bit of messing around I have fixed the issue.
      In tye end I swapped out the old HDD and updated that as planned. I then used the debug update method and transferred the update from yet anothe USB stick (can never be too sure) and it worked. I am now running FERROX COBRA 8.43.
      Thanks for your help dude. :biggrin2:
    17. Alexander
      OFW DUAL BOOT has problems?
    18. denism
      Some bluray movies still don't work :( Disk autostart, but then the black screen, need to turn off/on PS.
    19. littlebalup
      Looking and decrypting CoreOS files from his pup, spu_pkg_rvk_verifier.elf has not been patched (same as OFW).
