I've never seen one here, so I thought I'd make one. PS3 Soft Mod Guide Part 1:Getting 3.55 firmware. Download This:http://www.mediafire.com/?u5p0kd45otmi9z0 Update to 3.55. If you're on lower firmwares, then download the update and install, if your already on it, then skip this part. But make sure you download 3.55 OFW because you still need it Part 2atch 3.55 firmware. I'm going to use Kmeaw's CFW for this part as I think it's the most useful. Download the patching files: zSHARE - PS3Kmeaw.rar - Free File Hosting Service | Audio and Video Sharing | Image Uploading | Web storage Extract flies to desktop or a new folder and copy the 3.55 OFW inside the folder. Open command prompt and type in "cmd" Then when the cmd comes up then type "cd C:UsersAdminDirectory to kmeaw_cfw_lv2 folder" and press Enter. Then once that is done type in "bspatch PS3UPDAT.PUP PS3CFW.PUP patchfile" and let it patch the file. When done you should see "PS3CFW.PUP" in the folder, rename it to what a OFW would look like. "PS3UPDATE.PUP" Part 3: Making sure you did everything right. To make sure the firmware is made right, you need to check the MD5. If done correctly, it should come out as this. 2be5e87a22bf1e7f48e98fcabd38977b Part 4: Installing the CFW. Put the CFW on a usb stick "/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP" and plug it into the PS3. You can try installing it right from the XMB, but if it doesn't work go into recovery and install it. There are precompiled ones on the internet, but you want to make sure you don't get it from a bad source as that will brick your PS3. If you do how ever get one precompiled, ALWAYS make sure the MD5 is right. Other CFW's you can use: Naima CFW PS3ita CFW Waninkoko CFW V2. If there are any other's please let me know. PSN Access: Right now all methods are useless since 3.60 added some new things, so until a new method is found, no psn. How To Install Homebrew: When you download homebrew it will come in a .pkg format. To install it, place it on the root of your usb stick and plug it in. Go to game on the PS3 and go to "Install Package Files" and install your homebrew.
