    ive been outta the PS3 for far to long, mostly doing CFW stuff on 3ds and wii U, but anyway, poking around i noticed from a month ago there is now CFW for even the latest OFW for PS3. poking around alot more, i can't seem to find any game loader programs (not just for 4.76, but any at all, google if failing me and keeps directing me towards cobra lite 7.1, but i don't straight up see anywhere that it runs a USB loader)

    so my question is, is it possible to USB load (or play backups, or install USB games to the HD, or whatever you like to call it) on OFW 4.76 to some CFW?

    if so, whats the CFW name, and whats the USB loaders name?

    PS3 hacking is still stuck at the brick wall of OFW 3.55, no jokes here.
    You don't exactly use a USB Loader, you use a "backup manager" that mounts games from HDD/USB to your BluRay Drive and then play that.

    No CFW after 3.55, any CFW saying that they can be installed on OFW are fakes. The owners of those sites also make fake comments/accounts to shill their faggotry.

    im not saying i wouldn't normally believe you, but besides just about every site i find on google, and many sites i trust, theres even posts on HERE about people using it without problems and such.

    mind you its relatively new and such, and im asking about loaders cause it doesn't specify it can run any, or any compatable with 4.x, but there is DEFIANTLY a 4.x CFW.

    at least i think. in before i look like a fool. :rofl2:

    Although, people make custom firmware of 4.5x and 4.xx that you can install FROM 3.55, I forget the name of them, but they had a red scorpion as their CFW logo, and their firmware was always bleeding edge, top tier stuff.

    Yea, i haven't been on this scene since March. Afaik, there aren't any after 3.55.

    I know of ODEs (Cobra's new any-OFW option) if you're referring to that. Those are like USB Loaders, I guess?
    It requires soldering though but it can play PS3 ISOs and PSN games converted into ISOs.

    Last thing I did was install REBUG 4.65.2
