    So today I boot up my ps3 and it says to iunstall 4.82 because it cant start up the firmware. I have a 4.82 .pup and a 4.84 .pup and it just gets stuck on checking the usb for the file. I tried both and its still not working. This never had cfw on it and its a ps3 slim and any help would be appreciated.

    Have you tryed with other USB sticks?, the PS3 is a bit picky with some rare ones
    Also, are you aware about the MBR + FAT32 requirement of the PS3 ?

    One of the things you can do (but not yet, incase you have some worthy content in the hdd) is to take the hdd out of the PS3, format it in PC, and connect the hdd back to the PS3
    This should cleanup completly all the posible problems in the hdd related with problematic data generated by the PS3
    Is long to explain... but sometimes there is damaged/corrupted data in the hdd that doesnt allows the PS3 to install a firmware, in this cases is needed to format the hdd in PC (or use a different hdd)
