    Hi,

    I bought a PS3 Slim 250go recently.
    There is already a Rogero 4.65 firmware.

    Can I format the console to restore factory settings ?

    Can I use my PSN account ? No ban ?

    Can I bought games and/or DLC on the PSN through the PS3 safely ?

    Can I play retail games without being ban ?

    Is there another firmware better/simplier to use or I can stay on Rogero ?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    1. You want a fresh CFW or OFW?

    2. You can. Follow this video's guide. Make sure when using PSNinja make selections 1, 2, 3, and 5. Not 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

    3. Some can. Although I HIGHLY recommend you don't. Unfortunately pirating is a safer option for DLC downloads. Of course on games like Destiny, Black Ops 3, or AW there is no point to buy them because the ban is to easy. Visiting the PSN store at all is very bad as it has a good CFW detection. You can take the risk if you want though.

    4. Yes. It's better to have retail games than XMB or backuped games. I do take the risk and use backup games haven't been banned I use proper anti-ban. If you do that you could probably as well.. Destiny, Black Ops 3, and AW have no good anti-ban. Popular games like GTA V, BO2, or MW3 are nice to play though. You still need to download anti-ban.

    5. I recommend Rebug. It is very easy and nice to use for beginners.

    P.M for all the help you need. That is why I am here! :)

    1 . I want to stay on CFW unless there is a huge reason to go OFW ...

    2 . I will watch the video, thank you.

    3 . The thing is I got a PSVita on 3.60 firmware and I want to be able to buy some games for it ... But I can purchase the game on the website and then download it on my PS3, right ?

    4 . Ok, I buy the game I like, so it won't be a problem to play with. Even on multiplayer ? And what about DLC buying ?

    5 . I will take a look. Actually I'm learning a lot of thing about the PS3 and the CFW. Later maybe I will give it a try.

    Thank you for your answers.

    1. I don't see any need to format the system. Formatting is hard if you don't have a mounting system to properly do it. I recommend just going straight to REBUG or your desired CFW.

    3. If you mean access the PSN store then forget about it. When you pirate you download on your PC/Laptop and put it on USB then install it as a .pkg on your PS3 then it will install the DLC files to the game. No money. That is the only safe way to install DLC. Don't install pirated DLC on Destiny, Black Ops 3, or Advanced Warfare as ban rates are already high and you can make them higher. The ban rate is for the games banning system not PSN ban.

    4. Buy the game disc, pirate the game to XMB, or pirate the game to a backup manager (e.g Multiman, Webmod, or Iris). Remember when you pirate you don't buy. So if you wanna earn games legit then buy them from Gamestop or something. If you wanna digit game them pirating is always an option. Also I forgot to mention you can backup your games to the PS3 then play them without the disc. This is NOT considered piracy. You can even backup your friends games and play them.

    5. Yes. Install Rebug afterwards switch to DEX system so you can play region-free all your games.

    1 . I want to erase the content of the previous owner.

    3 . I've got a PSTV to activate in order to play mys Vita games on. And as my Vita stays on 3.60, I need something to download the game I purchase to it.

    5 . How to switch to REBUG from Rogero ? And Why REBUG is better ? It's not obvious on their website ... and it's lack some documentation ...

    1. It would be very hard. You can manually erase the content. Just delete the game data, save files, any games, maybe some homebrew, pictures, videos, or users. Like I said if you format you will have to go through the pain of re-putting a CFW on your ps3.

    3. Yes you can use the PS3. Just make sure you use the video I gave you first. I am not sure how it will go. You should check google as I am sorry. I don't own a Vita, but I am sure there is a CFW way to do this.

    4. Just use a REBUG updat.PUP and it will update your system to Rebug CFW (Make sure there are no USB in the ports while it is updating). Check this page. It's full of features. Rebug is always updating it has almost all useful CFW features. It is so simple to use and so packed to the core with features. You will love it I assure you. (Make sure to install REX edition)

    I'm back with some news.
    I successfully installed Rebug REX.

    But the data of the previous owner are still here. So what can I do to wipe this ? There is three options in the système menu
    • Wipe preferences data
    • Wipe content
    • Restore PS3 system
    I'm not sure for the translation as my menu is not in english

    Is my system clean ? I mean It was under Rogero previously and now it works with Rebug, maybe there some dead files or something like that ?

    Can I download on my CFW PS3 Vita games bought from online store by PC ? This in order to copy the game on my Vita.
    Thinking about that, I saw that it's possible to copy Vita games on the PS3, I'm right ? If yes, this could help me to activate my PSTV without needed to download a Vita games on my PS3.

    Thank you.

    Those dead files are known as cache. To delete those you need to use multiman to clear the cache dead files. Check out this. There should be a section to clear cache. I still don't know about the Vita situation. It's a risk and you could take it if you want to.

    Ok, thanks.

    And what about the three possibilities I gave about wiping previous owner data ?

    Also there is a user named reActPSN v2.0 1rif 0edat. What is it ?

    Just delete all users and create a new one. Along with deletion you will delete the users stuff.

    If I format I'll be back in OFW 3.55 ?
    I can still perform a wipe preferences and data, right ?

    Go to CFW 3.55 and de-flash first (google it). Then go to OFW and do whatever you want.

    So I finally restore my PS3 just simply by selecting restore PS3 system.
    I've done that after reading many post that saying it's safe.
    In fact I'm still on Rebug 4.80.1 firmware but the preferences and the games are gone just like I wanted to.

    Now that fact is I want to go to PSN in order to activate my PS3 and download update and DLC for the game I own (physically and legally).
    I will use later some homebrew to play PS2 games.

    So whts is the safest way to activate my PS3 and go to PSN ?
    I see there is three major homebrew :
    • PSNPatch
    • PSNinja
    • SEN Enabler

    Yes. If you are on DEX then you can use Rebug Toolbox.

    If you are on D-REX which you are not then you need to use Rebug Toolbox to spoof your console ID to a CEX console ID.
