    Hello everyone,

    I'm getting a 60GB CECHC03 tomorrow and had a few questions. It's running on HEN 4.85 and I want to install Rebug 4.84. Is this console currently on HFW or OFW? Checked out some tutorials and I have a general idea of how to proceed, but I wanted to be sure. Should I start with 4.85 HFW -> Ps3xploit -> QA Flagger and then installing Rebug CFW?

    Thank you.

    I'd recommend re-installing HFW first to get rid of HEN so you can start fresh, and then following this guide to use the flash writer to patch your console's flash (NAND in your case) which will then allow you to install CFW afterwards. As it stands you are on HFW, although OFW and HFW are basically one and the same.

    I'm on the fence about making the switch also, but I have a slim minver 3.40.
    By doing that would I loose my saves or games already on the internal? Since it has some downgrade involved I would like to know.

    Don't think you'll lose anything if you just change it to HFW because everything's still in your hdd unless you format it.
    But just wait for some more confirmations just to be sure.

    No, any installed games will not be removed, nor would any save games. You could back up your save files first for peace of mind, but they won't be affected by installing CFW. Likewise, any game backups, say for example in dev_hdd0/PS3ISO will also not be affected by the switch over from HEN to CFW.
