    How to Check the PS3 Base Firmware Version with MinVerChk

    Before we start you will need:

    1. After you download "MinVerChk" you will see a "PS3UPDAT.PUP" file. Put that file in a folder named "UPDATE" and that folder in another folder named "PS3", now move the "PS3" folder to the root of your external HDD (USB flash drive in most cases).

    2. Go the "Settings" tab on your PS3, and click on "System Update". Choose "Update via Storage Media".

    3. It will detect your PS3 update as a "Version Check by Ifcaro" click "OK"

    After it says "Please wait..." for a couple of second it will tell you your PS3 base firmware (3.40 in my case ).

    Below is a list of PS3 models (for fat and slim) and their base firmware courtesy of tito1:

    Base Firmware for fat PS3 model:
    • 40GB CECHG04 - Fat OFW 1.90 (Max. Downgrade)
    • 40GB CECHG04 - Fat OFW 1.90 (Max. Downgrade)
    • 60GB CECHC04 - Fat OFW 1.0 (Max. Downgrade)
    • 60GB CECHC04 - Fat OFW 1.1 (Max. Downgrade)
    • 80GB CECHK04 - Fat OFW 2.16 (Max. Downgrade)
    • CHECHE11 80GB - Fat OFW 2.40 (Max. Downgrade)
    • Fat DECR1400A - FWD 2.60 (Max. Downgrade)
    • 80GB CECHE01 - Fat OFW 1.00 (Max. Downgrade)
    • 160 GB CECHP04 - Fat OFW 2.45 (Max. Downgrade)

    Base Firmware for slim PS3 model:
    • 120Gb SLIM OFW CECH2004A - 2.70 (Max.Downgrade)
    • 120GB SLIM OFW CECH2001A - 2.70 (Max.Downgrade)
    • 250GB SLIM OFW CECH2004B - 2.70 (Max.Downgrade)
    • 320GB SLIM OFW CECH2504B - 3.40 (Max.Downgrade)

    If you are still unsure which PS3 model you have, compare your PlayStation 3 console to the PS3 SKU Models chart.
