    Hi,

    I tried to google, but it's very confusing. All am getting is very old info.

    I have a Slim PS3 on OFW 3.56. I also have a friend who has E3 flasher. What are my options of installing CFW? Do I still need E3 flasher to install CFW? or is there an easier way?

    Thanx a lot in advance. Desperately waiting for a reply :)

    You should be able to use MinVerCheck to find out if your PS3's lowest possible firmware is 3.55 or lower. If so, then you can use a hardware flasher (E3 Flasher is probably still the recommended one) to downgrade it.
