For those who wish to do it yourself, from PSGroove: Wutangrza was successful in repeating flukes1's process and has released a very easy to use patch, for the official 3.55 firmware.

Steps for Patching 3.55 Official Firmware on Windows

Step 1

Download the above files and extract them all into the same folder

Step 2

Open a command prompt, navigate to the folder where you extracted the above files, then type:

[Register or Login to view code]


Step 3

Delete PS3UPDAT.PUP

Step 4

Rename PS3CFW.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP and thats it! You now have an official 3.55 with lv1/lv2 peek and poke enabled

You're now ready to install the PUP, make sure your console has 3.55 official firmware installed, prior to flashing the peek and poke enabled version. You will need to install it from the recovery menu.

Also, after flashing the 3.55 peek and poke enabled CFW, you can then install Geohot's CFW. You will still retain lv1/lv2 peek and poke.

  • Place USB stick into the USB port
  • Select #6 on the menu screen and force an Update.

From festizio on FIX PERMISSIONS: It seems that a lot of folks are having issues installing and running backups on there Ps3′s due to the bug in PL3 that effects file permissions. Here is what I have been doing to get around the black screen hangs and disc read errors.

1. fire up multiman, blackb0x, whatever ftp & transfer your backup
2. run your lv2 pkg of choice
3. run the fix permissions app that is installed from running the package located above

The app will go through the HD and correct the file permission errors that come with using PL3. I have been using this method after each game backup I install, however if you install (ftp/copy) 5 at a time the app only needs to be run once and it will fix all 5 games as it does its magic to the entire drive.
Now as far as USB, hampster driven HD's etc I can not say as I do not have any of the above so I have not tested it myself.

Yea i'm in the same boat too, unable to run fix permissions.. also I can install a pkg game, but can't run it - so presume its due to the fix permissions.. Some said to install Geohots over the top, but I'm a bit wary of that lol.

other than that, everything else works flawlessly - just don't fancy losing everything else

I cannot get blackbox ftp to load, opens with an error code, I cannot get the Fix permisions file to load, loads with an error code,

How can i fix file permisions to fix loading if i cant get the file to run lol.

I thought this firmware ran signed and unsigned code, so why do things thats worked before now not work??
