    [Answered] Can't update PS3 3.41 OFW to 3.55 OFW help?

    Hi, I recently got a PS3 on Ebay for the sole reason of putting CFW on it and I cant. The PS3 appears to be on 3.41 OFW from the PS3 but I can't update it at all. When I go into recovery mode its says I need to update it to 3.56 or over. The problem is not the name of the file or folders names as i have checked and rechecked him. Any help how be great. Thanks

    You can try to downgrade again, use a dongle or whatever you have, PS3 you can try to enter the factory mode system, download OFW341 instead of modification, download file also Lv2diag_355, after all you can be right.

    You must have a usb pendrive with fat32 format system, For OFW341 file name must PS3UPDAT.PUP, and to Lv2diag_355 use 1 file to downgrade to name Lv2diag.self size 365 KB (374 272 bytes), put the two files on the root of your usb flash without a folder, try only 2 files are in the root of usb pendrive.

    Do it now for your PS3 is having problems, turn off the PS3 then insert usb usb pendrive at the far right near the bluray disc, turn on the PS3 wait 3 minutes to stand by.

    Her following after you have come out of the factory mode, use files 2 with names of Lv2diag_355 Lv2diag.self with size 201 KB (206 256 bytes), Lv2diag.self enter the root usb pendrive without any other files, do as above, and wait for the PS3 to stand-by.

    Having completed all done then your PS3 will return to its normal position, with OFW341 and you can upgrade to 355 or to position the latest CFW. I hope you SUCCEED friend.

    Thank you.

    Did you install 3.55 OFW or CFW ? Those should be done from 3.55 lower.

    Have you tried update via XMB (system update)

    While you are using recmod, did you connect usb charger to controller and then press "start+select" usually that the way. Try that and see what happen.

    Reinstall again 3.41 with recovery mode , if this not helps try different HDD , if not most likely it was downgraded wrong way from 3.56 and therefore your problem most likely then will remain hardware flasher , MOST IMPORTANT what model of console you have ?

    1. Re-install 3.41 from XMB
    2. Put a 3.55 CFW on a USB stick (FAT32 Format) and put it in the right USB port.
    3. Install the CFW from the XMB.

    If that doesn't work and still says you need 3.56 or over, try disconnecting from the internet.

    That PS3 was most likely downgraded with the modified 3.41 and spoofed to 3.56

    install 999 downgrader and then dehash your PS3 and now you can install CFW that you want, it seems that your PS3 is been on downgrade.

    yea, are u sure u installed rogero v3.7 or rebug 999 downgrader pup? Cause this should definately work. And by dehash he means qa toggle. But sometimes you can't go up from there. You have to go to 3.55 OFFICIAL FIRMWARE first.
