    I am happy that someone made a FAQ but theres a problem with it. CFW is like CIOS it contains copywrited material therefore you cant be linking it... then again patching OFW is really easy...

    A mod has read through the enitre guide so I don't think that it's illegal here.
    Also, this is a guide, not a FAQ.

    Great guide.

    Off topic question: If someone was to buy a brand new PS3 from a retail store today, what are the chances of it being on 3.55 or lower?

    25% Go buy one off ebay or craigslist and ask the seller when he or she bought it. If its before november ish it will have 3.55 or lower

    I've not heard of ANY retail PS3s shipping with 3.56 so far. Then again, LG have prevented Sony from shipping PS3s to Europe for a while. Sony sued LG and now LG are hitting them back big-time.

    EDIT: Ok, now I have. That was a month ago, so I would guess there's another couple weeks until most retailers run out of stock with older FWs.

    Well, it's better that you cover how to patch the firmwares manually. The cfw creation is not that hard, just download the official 3.55 and run batch command to patch the firmware to cfw.
    Please update your first post to replace this part for all the available one. Let me know if you don't find a patching method for any of them, I have the .patch for waninkoko v2, Kmeaw, Hermes, Wutangrza.

    I recommend using Zouzzz's Custom Firmware Maker 1.5 (it's a GUI for Bsdif patcher made especially for the cfw. It apply the wanted patch for 3.55 or 3.41 cfw).
    Plus it checks the MD5 after patching to be sure the firmware is not incorrectly patched, which will be a brick reason.
    .Net framework 4.0 required.


    There's also another copyrighted problem, so far only very few homebrew are really legal. We should only post the ones created with PSL1GHT SDK.
    There's only 1 backup manager using it, and it's the one from Hermes. other backup managers shouldn't be linked on GBAtemp :/
    I'll talk about it with the other mods and the admin to know the position of the site regarding these files.

    For Waninkoko v2, you say "flash at your own risk", but it should be told for every custom firmware.

    you gave multiMAN ver 1.16.03 as the base for this tutorial. there's already another version, and like you know, there a new one almost every day. You should refrain using the version number in the tutorial.
    If possible give a link where the user can find

    I think you'll make a GUIDE 3 - Managing backups, right ?
    for the moment, there's nothing on the payloads and how to dump or play a game.
    note : Waninkoko cfw already include a payload, so there's no need to run one before the backup manager.

    I think File factory is a crappy file hoster, many link and confirmation and wait time.

    Your guide says to replace CA24.cer, but I think it's CA27.cer which needs to be replaced.

    I think the 3.56 spoof is not needed for PSN access. Can someone confirm that?

    Replacing CA24.cer was the practice for F-PSN 0.3, although IIRC, it started using CA24.cer and CA27.cer. I stopped caring when 0.5 came out, so I didn't keep track.

    Thanks. I've read that the Killzone 3 bundles are shipped with 3.50. I'll pick one up before they're gone [​IMG]

    You've heard wrong. It's highly unlikely because Killzone 3 just came out.

    Some confirmed it was on 3.50 when they bought it. I'll take my chances. If the worst happens I'll just have it returned.

    ok, thanks [​IMG]

    If you go with Zouzzz tools, I think you should also explain how to patch the firmware to cfw manually, for people not wanting to install .net framework 4.0, and for people not on windows.
    Also it seems it doesn't allow patching of geohot's cfw, I don't have the patch files, but I think it still can be found.

    I would personally move the Guide1 Step2 & 3 (multiman & ntfs) in the future Guide 3 - how to use multiman (or "game manager")
    Maybe you could put each Guide in a spoiler tags to make the post looks shorter (it's just an idea).
    What do you think about this?

    Let me know if you need any help.


    There's currently no user's report. Do any Tempers followed this guide yet ?
    Is that easy to follow, or hard to do a specific step, etc. ?

    There is now a f*ckPSN 0.6, which supposedly helps with console ID spoofing. However, it just doesn't seem to work for me, because I kept getting a 800710D23 connection error whenever I tried to do anything. Looking up on Google, it did not seem to be an error indicating a ban (I've yet to even receive the warning email from Sony yet, since I've not actually been running hacked games either - I just want to be able to sync trophies and go to the storefront for demos and stuff).

    F*ckPSN 0.5 still works fine however.

    Are you using 0.5? If yes, then you need to replace CA24.
