    Firstly I am making this guide as several people have requested I make one as I have succesfully flashed Waninkoko's firmware to my PS3, Secondly I take no responsibility for you bricking/screwing your PS3

    Also I dont know why people dont just look at the front page but whatever.....

    (NOTE: If you are already one OFW 3.55 then dont bother with steps 1-4)


    1. Download and Sony's official 3.55 firmware from http://www.ps3-hacks.com/file/238
    2. Then put it onto a usb flash drive like this X:/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP (X being the drive letter of your usb)
    3.Insert usb into ps3 click on System update and click storage device.
    4.Click ok, yes accept t&as
    5.Then download Waninkoko's Custom firmware 3.55 from http://www.ps3-hacks.com/file/260
    6.If needed to rename to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    7.Repeat steps 2 -4
    8.You should now have install package files under the games catorgory now and be able to install homebrew.

    (NOTE: The homebrew must be signed to work)

    Also if you want to backup your Legally purchased games with Regero Manager 7.8 use this --> http://www.ps3-hacks.com/file/261 all signed and ready to backup Your not downloaded, but legally owned PS3 games

    Just put the .pkg file into the root of the flash drive and put into ps3 usb port and select install package file click X and let it install then go down and you will see it click X and start backing up!!

    Hope this help if a Admin see's this and a tutorial has already been posted then please remove this post and I will understand/

    (Another Note: The PS3 I installed this onto was a 120gb Slim CECH-2002-A model)


    If there is anything else i missed, needed or wanted I will post tomorrow im tired and am going to :sleep:

    First check the sticker on the back of your Ps3. What you're looking for is your serial followed by a dash, where you will see something like this: CECHK(mine)
    Look below at the list of these codes. If yours has a * next to it/is 256MB, you shouldn't install Waninkoko's Cfw.
    For you guys in the UK, look up the nand size of your PS3 elsewhere, just in case.

    PS3 FAT NAND SIZE
    CECHA = 256MB*
    CECHB = 256MB*
    CECHC = 256MB*
    CECHE = 256MB*
    CECHG = 256MB*
    CECHH = 16MB
    CECHJ = 16MB
    CECHK = 16MB
    CECHL = 16MB
    CECHM = 16MB
    CECHP = 16MB
    CECHQ = 16MB

    PS3 SLIM NAND SIZE
    CECH-20..A = 16MB
    CECH-20..B = 16MB
    CECH-21..A = 16MB
    CECH-21..B = 16MB
    CECH-250.A = 16MB
    CECH-250.B = 16MB
    CECH-250.A = 16MB
    CECH-250.B = 16MB
    CECH-251.A = 16MB
    CECH-251.B = 16MB

    KEEP IN MIND. The 256 MB ones definitely brick. But as of now, with the information we have, it's touch and go: any PS3 has the potential to be bricked by this, confirmed working report or no. Just wait a week or two, I guarantee you if it's not fixed by that time, then there is no point in installing this at all. You shouldn't have to risk your $100+ dollar console for something that barely works as it is.

    Walking through, I see the light. It guides me towards my destiny. Do you not see yours?
    Favorite game: Resident Evil 2, and it damn sure needs a remake, with story fully intact, and environment/characters translated to higher detail. Gameplay mechanics need a rev too.

    @melted. if you want to make a tut for noobs, one with the least amount of reading is going to be the best as noobs dont like to do any work for themselves. hell, if you do it with just pictures noobs will suck your dick

    im not saying the tuts bad. its just that there are so many kids who want free games quick that they dont bother reading anything they dont have to. thats why i laugh at all the people with bricked consoles while i still sit at 3.41 with a jailbreak

    6.If needed to rename to UPDAT.PUP
    No, you need to rename it to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" without quotes.
