For anybody wanting a PS4 FW Collection check here.

Basics:
Firmwares:
OFW is official firmware made by Sony. Use this for normal updates.
-
CFW is a custom firmware made by hackers. CFW is available however only works on 3.55 and below.
-
999 is not necessarily a firmware, but it allows the PS3 to go to any update version that supports your PS3. Changes maximum upgrade version to "999". You must have QA Flag enabled to use this.
-
MinVerCheck is a firmware that crashes the system update into telling you what your lowest available downgrade is. Is useful for E3 Flashers.
-
MFW is a modified firmware. MFW is available however not recommended unless you know what you are doing.
-------------
System Types:
CEX is default on normal OFW. Does not have any special features.
-
DEX is used on developer consoles and modified for user consoles using CFW. Has many features ranging from debug settings.
-------------
Great!
Now that you know the basics its time to get the .PUP ready for the PS3. Move on to part 2.
1. Get a flash drive that has 2gb of storage or more available. Also make sure you download desired firmware.
2. Make this directory on the root of the USB flash drive.
(PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
3. Obviously you need a real .PUP update to put where it says "PS3UPDAT.PUP". Make sure it is exactly that.
4. Once put in right order its time to actually install this on our PS3. Move on to part 3.
1. Turn on PS3. (Trust me.)
2. Connect USB storage containing PS3UPDAT.PUP into PS3.
3. Turn off PS3 by holding the power button. Once it turns off hold again and wait until the PS3 shuts off 2 or 3 seconds after it turns on while still holding it.
4. Press and hold again until you hear 4 full beeps. Once when you turn on the console, second about 3 seconds later, third and fourth about 4 seconds later. Once you hear all 4 beeps let go of power button.
5. Connect your DS3 controller with a USB cable and press the PS button.
6. Select "System Update" then follow the screen to complete the installation. If you don't want to mess up updating I recommend not having a game disc in the system.

question has anyone find a way to downgrade 4.60 to 3.55 for hacking w/o a flasher or cobra ODE I haven't had a ps3 in a LONG time

No sorry. Just flashers. BTW ODE never let you do that.
PS3 is one of the hardest consoles to crack above 3.55. The PS4 is easier to hack than the PS3 (GeoHot said so himself). We don't have GeoHot anymore and basically all the good PS3 devs went to PS4 so all hope is lost in my opinion.

I fixed the spoiler tag. I guess it's what you wanted.

Today rebug released 4.81.1 CFW.
your list is also missing 4.80 rebug

Thanks. Idk why, but 4.80 Rebug when I go to their home page and click on it then it redirects me to a donation page.

Good news guys. I managed to get my hands on some hard to find downgraders like 3.56 downgrader, 4.25 to 3.55 downgrader, habib 999 downgrader (not completely gone, just really hard to find), and MiralaTijera downgrader. :D
Will add them when I can!

I am planning on doing a full cloud dedicated to PS3/PS4 updates. It will make it easier for me to manage hopefully and the thread will update more often.

    Yeah they should send something with 5000 HP over there and REALLY tear it up.

    Tesla really needs to step their game up if they wanna tear up tracks on the moon

    The problem being is no electric chargers within 20 miles of each other are on the moon

    it looks like something from space anyway

    just need to add folding solar panels to it

    Jut have it nuclear powered.

    Like submarines.

    submarines are quite a lot bigger

    i don't think we have reactors small enough to fit in a car yet
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But the generator itself is relatively small.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And in any case you couldn't get proper cooling on the Moon so a powerful nuclear generator is out of the question.
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    just run it at night

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and run on battery power at day

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Cooling issues.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the moon is like -170C at night i'm sure that's enough
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the only way to take advantage of that cold is to burrow cooling fins into the ground.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Contrary to popular belief, the vacuum of space is not cold, it's nothing.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Heat does radiate from warm objects but the effectiveness of radiation cooling is negligible.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You need a medium to take up the heat and take it away.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the denser the medium, with a higher specific heat capacity, the better.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    This is why water cooling is better than air cooling.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And why cooling is a major problem in space.
