    Edited PS2 Classics section for a headnote about Cobra CFW.
    Added Control Fan Utility since I've been advertising it like hell.

    Edit: Fixed the PS3 model charts
    Also added MinVerChk to "My PS3 is insert OFW here" since I kinda forgot it was an alternative.

    Added my upload of PS3 Tools Collection by aldostool. An old version but still very usable.
    Will also replace the OFW 3.55 link

    I have it but you need to use rogero 3.55 in fsm to get on 3.55 as it has the nocheck patches
    And you have patched your console for 3.55 first?
    If you patch for 4.50 then you can go direct to the latest 4.76cfw

    With progskeet or teensy++2.0 or E3flasher
    Depends on your console model CECH number to know if it has NAND chips or NOR chip and if it is downgradable

    The OFW 3.55 DL link is on the post somewhere. I uploaded my own copy.
    However, this is only meant for people under 3.55 (Hey I've met people with 1.0 3DSs) to get to 3.55

    Hello!
    I want to ask how can i installed CFW 4.78 after the installed OFW 4.78 on CFW 4.76.
    In one service they told me that can be done via software without hardware downgrade.
    Greetings!

    That was a big mistake to make
    You go from cfw to cfw
    Not cfw to ofw to cfw
    No way to put the patches back on that the installation of ofw has removed other than via a tsop programmer
    Eg
    Teensy++2.0
    Progskeet
    E3 flasher

    In one service I was told that it could be with no downgrade. Just software without loss of any information. Just want to have аn PSN Account.

    If your on ofw higher than 3.55 then it can only be done via hardware

    You don't need to "downgrade" to 3.55 first
    You can go direct to the latest cfw
    But you do need the console patching for either 3.55 or 4.50 cfw to do one or the other and that's via hardware

    Hello guys im kinda a noob at these things and have a question.

    i have a ps3 ofw 4.80 (wich is probably a dumb thing to update to) and model number CECH-2504A.
    My question is if i can still can get a cfw on my ps3 (my purpose for this is to backup my ps3 games on a harddisk and play them on a usb loader since my laser is dead).

    From what i have read is that i need to downgrade to ofw 3.55 in order to get a cfw the only thing is that i don't know if i have the right model number to do it and if it is easy to downgrade or not?

    Hope you guys can help me thnxz in advance =)

    Yours probably won't go bellow 3.56 but you do not need to go to 3.55
    Install the minvercheck pup to check yours is either 3.55 or 3.56 min console or post your date code that's in a white box or the year that's next to the model number under the console

    If it can go to 3.56 or bellow then you can "downgrade" direct to the latest 4.80cfw by using e3 flasher or progskeet or teensy++2.0
