    I have PS3 that can play games for free.
    When I bought it it was in this condition, so I do not know details how homebrew was done.

    I have downloaded a new Fifa 19 game, but when I start it via IRISMAN v4.82 (I did upgrade from v3.46) I just got a black screen.
    My assumption is that I need to system software (current version 4.70) to the latest 4.82.

    But I have few questions:

    1.
    This not starting (just black screen) of FIFA19 is this even problem of system software 4.70 or just problem with my ps3 ?
    I was trying to find some list of which PS3 games need what system software version, but was not able to find it.

    2.
    I was reading
    gbatemp.net/threads/guide-ps3-4-82-cfw-installation-for-dummies.491117/
    what I do not understand is once I have the patched firmware (you got this by a successful exploitation of the system) do I need to install REBUG or not.

    3.
    If I upgrade to 4.82 will I lose all the games that currently I have on my PS3

    Thank you for your help.

    I assume it does indeed require a newer OS
    You can check the minimum version by viewing the param.sfo file (of the game and any installed updates for it) on a PC, but since I somehow doubt you were the only owner of that backup, someone might have edited it
    Don't do that, it's for unmodded consoles
    If you already have CFW, simply download a newer CFW (like Ferrox Cobra or Rebug) to a MBR FAT32 external drive as /PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP and use the normal update feature to load it

    No, why did you think so?

    How can I see what CFW do I have currently on my PS3?
    I am asking so just to take the same model after.

    Which one would you recommend?


    I was thinking that maybe it is deleting the whole HDD.
    Better if not.

    Right in the middle of where gbatemp starts coloring it :)

    That depends on the CFW (which may have modified the version string, renamed some menu option, added a custom theme, ..., or nothing identifying at all)
    Personally I prefer Ferrox Cobra, since Rebug adds a load of features (and unnecessary complexity that comes with them) I don't care about, but that's inherently subjective
    I am also still on 4.82 since I don't currently need anything provided by 4.83

    For anybody else:

    I have updated to 4.82.2 REBUG RE (I read that it is most stable) after that FIFA 19 is working.
