    PS3 Firmware update question help?

    What would happen if I installed the official Sony 3.73 firmware on my 4.31 firmware?

    If it doesn't work, is there any type of mods for 4.31?

    You can not downgrade with OFW at all sorry, it will not install at all. To go down you need Hardware or a CFW already installed, and to install CFW on 4.31 you need Hardware(HW).

    PS: To install a CFW via HW you need a CFW compatible PS3 Model!

    Hi, not sure if this is right place for this post??

    I have a Slim CECH-2501A. I used V-Check and found that I can downgrade to FW 3.50. I'm in the process of Formatting the whole system, hoping it will clear the storage area. Before I did this I tried about 6 different PUP files all of which downloaded to 70% then got 1 of 3 errors: 8002F957 or 8002F2B5 or 8002F2C5 (file corrupt). I'll try these PUPs again after format; I've also got memdump_0.01-Final, question is; do I use the memdump first or try to upgrade FW or try to insatall irismanager?

    I started with a Phat system using the swap trick but lost interest, these new CFW seem the way to go and thanks to all who have programmed them, I just can't seem to get them running, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You cannot just install CFW on top of OFW higher than 3.55. You have to downgrade to 3.55 with a hardware flasher first.
