    Quick question. Got a Refurbished PS3 Slim CECH 2501B for christmas, was wondering if when the PS3 gets refurbished if they can change the lowest firmware? Also, what is or how can I check the lowest firmware on my PS3?

    Turns out it's just as BlackAce said! 3.4.0! Cool. This can be closed now.

    refurbished means repaired or maybe just cleaned up not reset it will still be on whatever firmware someone installed last time it was used.
