Changing oem PS3 HD to new 1tb help?
Couple questions before i purchase this (newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152291)
Does the size fit in my slim?
When i install and turn back on what firmware gets installed? Could i have the 4.55 CFW on a flash drive and will it read/install from that maybe?
Yes it will fit.
Just back up anything you want with PS3 Backup Utility or using multiman
Shut down. Change hdd.
Put 4.55 CFW on USB and boot up. If your PS3 wants the update it will look for it and install.
