    Hey guys, I snagged a launch CECHA model due to some ridiculous circumstances and am now working on putting CFW on it.

    I have tons of console hacking experience but good lord PS3 hacking information is scattered all over the place and there is so much stuff that's extremely out of date but pulls the most hits..

    Anyway I have a 3.55 OFW freshly updated phat. I'm guessing I'm gonna put whatever that Cobra Starbucks cfw is, but the main site is dead and all the links I find are dead..

    Also what on earth is QA toggle. wtf is QA.

    All I want is a stable cfw that I can run homebrew on, I'm not going to do anything insane with this system..

    This PS3hax tutorial should cover your bases. It looks like they have a link out to the various CFW to explain them, and the main site hosts all the latest CFW that releases. I know literally nothing about PS3 hacking, and even that makes sense to me, so I think you should be okay too. They have various other tutorials with the latest relevant info to help you with stuff like homebrew, backup loaders, etc., whatever your heart desires.

    On the Kitchen Table Obviously
    Get REBUG, most stable CFW.
    Toggle QA is homebrew that lowers the chances of bricks when updating (it's more for the less stable ones). It's a requirement for downgraded consoles because the firmware doesn't match the internal system IDs and shit.

    Also look at my signature, made the info thread last summer but it still applies (Not alot has changed over the past year other than new homebrew/tools)

    Edit: Toggle QA is optional but nevertheless recommended because it's better to be prepared than not. REBUG CFW comes with it automatically because they're the devs who made it.

    Edit 2: Latest REBUG is 4.65.2 I think It's 4.70.1 now, I should update too

    Get REX edition, D-REX is more developer consoles
