CORE:

We have already discussed it, well now let me tell you how to use it:

1. Put the plugin in dev_hdd0 and add this line in boot_plugins.txt:"/dev_hdd0/habibplugin.sprx"
2. Put a 0 byte file in dev_usb000(rightest port of ps3).dev_usb000/core_flags/ps2
3. Restart your ps3 and if you get a reboot or 3 beeps it means SUCCESS!!

NOTE:

1. Don't try to spoof because you will get x.xx but if you did accidentally then you can do a reboot to fix it

2. PS2iso support on NON-BC PS3 ONLY!!!

metzen you are right and bit wrong , fat models have been NOR as well in fact all models from CECHHxx onwards are NOR

Is your ps3 a phat or slim? Slim = NOR

The hard drive is held in by one blue screw on the slim. You need to first lift the small square covering on the bottom of your unit and then you will see it. Once you have removed that screw the front faceplate where the hard drive is slides out to the right.

Below is a video explaining the process:




Hope it helps and good luck

first i think you should click restore default while in safe mode then reboot then click restore ps3 then use a downgrader pup file or a 4.53 cfw like mine or stevens or someones

M8 just 2 posts lower is nearly same thing , why ppl go to 4.53 its pointless and bricks building up , try other 4.53 cfw , try rebuilt database , if console is NOR try swap hdd , otherwise is hardware flasher.

Hello everyone,

I updated my ps3 with HABIB's 4.53 CEX CFW update and my PS3 failed to update. Now it reboots every time into safe mode, and i have tried updating with any other CFW update, but it wont work.

Any suggestions on what to do? And how do i get my PS3 back into "normal" again?

Help will be very appreciated

My console AND account got banned because I went online with it. I did NOT play games online, just was on PSN with a CFW console and they banned me.

So if you want to risk going online to play backups its always your own risk. They will ban you for the smallest thing. As I said I did nothing just have CFW installed and got banned.

It was 3.55CFW that I had installed. The one that if you flashed OFW3.55 there was no proof a CFW was installed at all and they banned me.

My PS3 is at the moment on Rebug 4.46. Is it possible to play online with an actually Custom Firmware like Habib 4.53?

I mean play with backups.

You still need to be on 3.55 to install any cfw, but these consoles cech-2501b and 2001a can be downgraded with a flasher.. but if your ps3 is already on 3.55 you can this cfw or any other.

If you wanna run backups i recommend rogero 4.50 or rebug.. rebug cfws are the best in my opinion
