    Hello,

    Can I reinstall OFW to my PS3 after it was hacked to CFW?
    And how? Thank you.

    possibly, but to be truly safe, you should also format the hdd on a computer.

    that may be the safest way, yes. doing that and formatting the hdd should remove all traces.

    I'd install ofw first, then format the drive just in case any cfw files are installed to the hdd.

    What would you think about downgrading to 3.55, then flashing back original unpatched nand, then installing ofw?
