Do you have to use sepperate usb or just take the file out of the key floders and put the cfw update in the folder? That was kinda off-topic but here comes something ontopic: Nice Tutorial! - Okay great that explains how to do what i was wondering, you do the exact same for putting the cfw back on the cfw hdd correct?Note that until now all the updates have been the same for every PS3 around the world.Download from Japan Download from Europe Download from United States The next step is to create a folder in your USB device named PS3 and inside create another one named UPDATE. PUP update file that you just downloaded in the folder UPDATE so it looks like this in your USB device: PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.Please note that however you cannot install older firmwares version, like for example you have a 3.50 console and you want to install 3.42 or 3.41 firmwares files.
It can only be done with downgrading which requires you to have a special USB device. Depending on your situation, you may need to install the PUP from the PS3 recovery menu. The only downside is that it may take a few hour for them to update the download pages, but that’s ok for me.First you should download the Update from one of the following sites.That way, all you have to do when you get home is plug it into the PS3 and install the update.One of the things that I hate about the Firmware updates of the Play Station 3 is the wait time to just download the file, so after the first two upgrades I learned to download the file directly from Internet to my PC and then install it using a USB device.Load up music, movies, and photos There are a few ways to get music, video, and photos from your computer to your PS3: wirelessly stream it; burn a CD with the data; or use a USB thumbdrive.
