    Hello, i have bought ps3 fat with Hen installed 4.85

    What should i do to install cfw rebug 4.85?

    I tried to install from update with usb didnt work gave me some error "The data is corrupted 8002F957"

    Should i reinstall OFW and try or update ps3xplot to 3.0 and try?

    First install HFW 4.85 via USB (use a FAT32 drive formatted as MBR) and then follow this guide. You need to determine whether your fat model PS3 is NAND or NOR, based on the model printed on the sticker on the back of the console.

    Edit: I somehow missed where you said you were already on HEN. Either way, I'd re-install HFW a second time, via the recovery menu if necessary.

    Yeah when doing CFW the devs suggest installing it twice to ensure less chance of a chance of error.

    I know :) but he is already on 4.85 so installing HFW again will populate both ROS areas with 4.85 firmware.

    Would that be true if hen is installed already at 4.85 because of double install of firmware? Just wondering I don't really know.

    Yes, if you were on OFW 4.85 and then installed HFW for HEN, you would have 4.85 in both ROS 0 and 1. Two consecutive installs of the same firmware will do this, as ROS 0 and ROS 1 alternate each time firmware is installed.

    Yes, if you're going to use the flash dumper + writer and then install CFW, it can't hurt to make doubly sure you won't run into any errors with your flash dump.
