Hello guys, my advice DONT download this. Got a big brick after doing it. I have a 60gb ps3, it was 4.50 b4 and now i can only access System recovery, as i formated it b4, sometimes it allows me to format, others gives me the 8002f281 error.

If i try to power up i get a blackscreen and after 20 seconds the ps3 turns off. Tried formatting HDD on PC, tried to install CFW's over system update on system recovery, tried using the composite cable, sigh... bricked for good i guess. If someone can help would be appreciated.

Hi andrewcy,

You can only install CFW on PS3 that run 3.55 OFW and below. If you wish to install this firmware you will need to flash the console to do so.

I hope this helps, also if you search your query, you will find out further information as what to do etc.

I am trying to install this HISHAMAGE CFW 4.50 but when installation is in process (about 72%) appears the message "error 8002F957".

My current OFW is 4.50 and my PS3 model is CECH-3003B. How can I install this CFW?

Please help me...???
