    Hi all,

    So I did 2 rawnand dumps, one on 4.xx, and one on 5.1.0 after deciding update ofw and play some online. I then deleted what I thought was the 4.xx file, but now I'm not 100% convinced I didn't screw up. So I have a backup with unknown version. Is there a way I can determine which version my backup is before restoring?

    Use this tool (as well as read up on how) to extract the updated system firmware files and then load them with the same tool on your console. It will display the firmware version once it reads the folder.

    If you updated to 5.1 you cannot restore your 4.x nand backup unless you followed a guide that updates without burning efuses and you have auto CRM installed

    This is exactly why I want to verify what version my backup is. :)
