Hi again , I've acquired another ps3 on 3.55 firmware and what i'm wanting to know is , what can i do with it as regarding being able to put games on hdd and store them on the ps3 so i can play them.
I'm new to ps3 and don't really know where yo start , so was looking for some info and maybe a pointer in the right direction, thanks for any help offered... cheers

You have to install Cfw on it like rebug or rogero and install something like multiman on it. And that is about it.

Download rebug 4.41 lite and install from xmb as update and then install multiman 4.40. The rebug has to be named PS3UPDAT.PUP and it has got to be in folders like PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP. and you have to put it on a USB drive formatted to FAT32. Thanks

The xmb is the main screen that the ps3 opens to.

I would highly recommend installing one of the latest 4.XX CFW on that 3.55. Then using maybe multiMAN or emulators on it. I use to do that. Until they all broke and I bought a super slim

Hi me again , i did what u said, and installed rebug 4.41 lite and install from xmb as update and then install multiman 4.40. but now when i try to open multiman my screen goes blank and crashes.
this ps3 has a faulty blueray drive , but the logic board is ok and married, i read that i could use a multiman with a faulty B.D. is this the fault, can ps3 work with rebug 4.41 with faulty drive or is there another?
Rebug 4.30.2 REX could anyone confirm that this works for me please, before i try it out thanx

your bluray drive (the logic board that is) is fine since you can install cfw just fine. If the logic board is broken then you might get stuck on update loop.
anyway, try using iris manager

this is what i've done so far:
installed rebug lite 4.41
installed multiman 4.40 and enabled BD Rom emulator
installed iris manager
copied games to usb then HDD in games folder (BLUS310...) folder
when i launch a game (Need for Speed Most wanted or Star Trek The Game.) from Iris or multiman it just returns me to the xmb
i can see the game in iris/multiman and it lets me press play but just returns to XMB, thanx anyone help me finish this .cheers
ps sorry do i need to install BDEMU-355KM if so where can i get a trusted version is it pkg file and install from rebug tools ?
thnx for your patience... cheers
