    hello, all
    since, the CFW hack for 4.82 OFW recently came out for ps3's from 3.55+ oft's to be able to hack & install CFW (finally)

    my ps3 is this:

    CECH-2004A => PS3 Slim (2000 series),

    I checked the Factory firmware using Minchecker and got 2.70.
    which is fine for the hack :)
    I haven't been using my ps3 for sometime and it was at FW 4.81,
    I updated to 4.82 using the OFW file.

    I did the NOR dump, (It took a few tries, like 90% of the time I got "Trigging exploit - Failed",
    after many tries and refreshing I got my "dump.hex" NOR backup :) )
    did the same for the NOR write, got it after a while :) )
    I then installed 4.82 Ferrox CFW :)

    my question is now,

    to be able to run ps2 games on my Non BD ps3 (ps3 Silm)

    1) do I need to change from 4.82 Ferrox CFW => Rebug CFW The one that works for 4.82 OFW?
    to be able to run ps2 games? using the toggle QA Flag?

    2) what do I need to be able to run ps2 games?

    3) how can I get my ps2 saves from my old ps2 to ps3? (I have copied the saves from my FreeMCboot ps2 using Launch Elf manger (to .psu and copied them over in MC format).

    thanx

    1) ps2 runs on Ferrox, but you need the cobra version.

    2) Webman or Multiman.

    3) I don't know.

    nice, thanx for these,

    1) so, to go to another CFW version, I need to use the Toggle QA Flag as mentioned in the guide?
    or just download the cFW file and install?

    2), nice, im using multilan. um do I need to install Ps2 classics manger & Classics placeholder also?

    3) np. I'll figure this one out. the saves.

    1) You can just install a 4.82 CFW over it without the need for QA flags since you're not downgrading.

    2)No. Neither for classics manager or placeholder, they are not needed.

    I would say install Webman so that games will be quickly accessible on XMB. Multiman is necessary to install PS2 to your internal HDD.
    You can use Multiman to load your installed games, but Webman is preferred. Also PS2 games only runs on internal HDD not external.

    There are other apps you can use to install PS2 games like Irisman if your having trouble with reading NTSF formated hard drives using Multiman.

    What do you mean exactly? Can't you use Webman's FTP?

    okay, thanx, so
    I should just install a ferrox cobra cow over my 4.82 cfw Ferrox?

    web man loads ps2 games from dvd? or can also use hDD?

    also, the PSX place links give errors, are they down?

    where can I find the Ferro cobra cFw file?

    I never used Webman's FTP. But I also said this, There are other apps you can use to install PS2 games. So I'm saying their are other methods.
    Im not familiar with FTP so maybe you can explain to OP how to use it.

    Yes it should install over it.

    Your right its down. Try rebug then. This is the latest version that just got released.
    https://rebug.me/official-rebug-4-82-1-cobra-7-54-lite-toolbox-2-02-15-dec-4th-2017/

    Its the light version so it should be more newbie friendly.

    Webman loads games from internal PS3 HDD. You have the slim so you can't load off of disc drive.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Looking through it, actually its not as newbie friendly like I though it was.

    You will have to enable cobra mode using the toolbox to play PS2 games. It should explain how to install it and enable cobra on the same link I gave.

    sorry to but in. Can you just install a rebugCFW over ferroxCFW? I tried multiman and webman for GTA LCS and my ps3 looks like its going to load then comes back with an error.

    Yes, if its matching the same firmware. If you wanna install a lower version then use QA toggle.

    I have the cobra ferrox. Will that just go straight over Rebug 4.82.1?

    Hey mate. I just downloaded rebug 4.82.1 CFW and rebug tool box make sure you enable cobra mode. I Downloaded another ps2Rom placed them onto my PS3 ps2iso folder and multiman worked for me.

    You need to enable Cobra. On Ferrox with cobra, its already enabled by default so no need to do anything.

    In rebug you need to install the rebug tool box to enable it.
    Instructions on how to enable it should be here.

    Make sure you create a ps2iso folder on the root of your hdd like the person above me said.

    I use Ferrox-Cobra 4.82 CFW, and Latest Multiman.
    I put nameofgame.iso inside the PS2ISO folder on HDD0 on PS3, run it from Multiman.
    System goes back to XMB, click on the Playstation 2 Software Disc icon and it will play.

    How does PS2 Compatibility look like? I looked at this: http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/PS2_Classics_Emulator_Compatibility_List

    and it seems a little bit messy. A lot of them refer to official ps2 classics and those obviously work fine, if I were to get a game that was an official ps2 classic as an ISO would it work just as fine or does it need to be converted?

    It should, hopefully. Theres only one way to know and its to try it out.
    I don't know about conversion I would have to look into it.
