As with any new CFW, I would advise against using this right away. Wait until a few people have installed it and there are no bricks reported. Do not ask for the precompiled PUP. You won't get it, and most likely you will get a warning. The same applies for linking a precompiled .PUP Today, in the wee hours of the morning, a dev by the name of Wutangrza, was successful in recreating flukes1's 3.55 peek poke CFW. As we reported the other day, flukes1 had successfully made a LV1/LV2 3.55 peek and poke enabled CFW. However, due to legal reasons he decided against releasing it. Wutangrza was successful in repeating flukes1's process and has released a very easy to use patch, for the official 3.55 firmware. So what does this mean for the average user? It means that it is only a matter of time now, before apps like multiMan and others, will begin to work with this new CFW. Your patched PUP should have the MD5/SHA1 listed below: MD5: 05933bb7a89bee87b0aa45c74f980e81 SHA1: 3d51501014ab46131a539e1664476e10fa9b611e UPDATE: Thanks to Quaker69, we have a Windows utility that will do all the necessary patching of the PUP for you (especially if you don't know DOS commands) http://psx-scene.com/forums/f118/pc-gui-cf...v1-0-5-a-76434/ SOURCE: PSGroove.com[/p] Steps for Patching 3.55 Official Firmware on Windows by PSGroove.com Step 1 Download the above files and extract them all into the same folder Step 2 Open a command prompt, navigate to the folder where you extracted the above files, then type: Code: bspatch PS3UPDAT.PUP PS3CFW.PUP Wutangrza-3.55.patch Step 3 Delete PS3UPDAT.PUP Step 4 Rename PS3CFW.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP and thats it! You now have an official 3.55 with lv1/lv2 peek and poke enabled You’re now ready to install the PUP, make sure your console has 3.55 official firmware installed, prior to flashing the peek and poke enabled version. You will need to install it from the recovery menu. Also, after flashing the 3.55 peek and poke enabled CFW, you can then install Geohot’s CFW. You will still retain lv1/lv2 peek and poke.[/p] Official 3.55 Firmware (you will need to find this on your own. Sony hosts it on their own site) Download: Wutangrza-3.55.tar.gz Download: bsdiff4.3-win32.zip Download: lv1dumper.tar.gz - Will try to dump lv1 (blackscreens sometimes.
