PS3 CFW 3.55 Update (to 4.55)
I have an old, fat PS3 running CFW 3.55 KMEAW and I think it’s time to give it an update. Thankfully, doing so is a lot easier now than it was two years ago.
Need extra space or just want to watch some movies on your TV through your PS3? All you need is an External HDD. USB drives are cheap now and can be available anywhere up to 3TB. However, before you go running off and getting one, you need to know that there are some issues. They’re not super huge issues, but it is enough to make you want to pull your hair out if you don’t have the tools to quickly fix it.
Wanna know more? Well, here’s how…
Over this past weekend I decided that I would go ahead and try to “fix” my PS3 by flashing the recovery partition on it with KMEAW’s Custom Firmware for version 3.55. The reasoning is that while I trust friends of mine that I loan my games to that they won’t break them, I don’t trust their pets to not eat the discs or slobber all over them. If you’re wondering, CFW (or custom firmware) allows you to use backups of your games in case they get destroyed, however, be advised, that if you use CFW and you go to the PSN, there is a high chance your PS3 will get flagged as ‘modified’ and then you WILL be banned from the PSN.
