    Default Installing 3.55 CFW KMEAW

    I know its a simple process, but some are still having trouble
    so i'm hoping this will help.

    You will no longer need your dongle to jailbreak the PS3.

    If you do not have a Bluray drive, do not bother! It will not work.

    You must start from ORIGINAL 3.55 Firmware!

    If you have OTHER 3.55 CFW, go back to OFW from the recovery
    menu. Use option #6 with a stock PS3UPDAT.PUP from USB device.

    OFW - http://www.ps3-hacks.com/file/238

    If your drive does not read discs, it will work if the logic board
    of the drive is functioning properly. However that does not mean
    all your backups will work! Diskless backups are not 100%, so please
    do not complain if a backup does not work! You must check the
    compatibility list first! http://www.psjcl.com

    ive never made a tutorial before, but here goes...

    first make sure you are on stock firmware 3.55. if youre
    not sure, go to system settings on your ps3, then
    scroll down to system information and it will display
    your firmware version. if you are not on 3.55, download it HERE
    and install manually (check your manual if you don't know how). if youre on 3.55, awesome.

    If you want to patch the firmware yourself:
    now use/download 3.55 ofw (official firmware) here:
    http://www.ps3-hacks.com/file/238
    Follow Patching Steps.

    Prepatched k-3.55 CFW
    The already patched PUP & LCv.pkg files hosted in the downloads section here
    are tested, and correct, thus you can SKIP all the patching steps.

    Prepatched k-3.55 CFW: http://www.ps3-hacks.com/file/267
    LV2-Patcher: http://www.ps3-hacks.com/file/263 (put on root dir, USB drive)
    Go to Procedure Steps

    Patching Steps (Skip if have prepatched PUP and LV2.PKG):
    extract the files. PS3UPDAT.PUP is the one you need.

    now download kmeaw cfw (custom firmware) here:
    http://www.multiupload.com/UBPX1755MG

    extract the files. make a folder called "usb" and put
    it on your desktop. put the file "lv2.pkg" in the
    "usb" folder. extract the files from "patchfile.rar"
    and "bsdiff4.3-win32.zip" and put them all in a folder
    on your c:/ drive called "bsdiff".

    if you want to make sure you dont brick your ps3, to
    be safe you can check the md5sum. to do that download
    md5 check here:
    http://www.softpedia.com/dyn-postdow...=75154&t=0&i=1

    extract "md5check.zip" and open "md5check.exe". click
    on the browse button and got to c:/bsdiff/PS3UPDAT.PUP.
    click on calculate md5 checksum button. you should see:
    ca595ad9f3af8f1491d9c9b6921a8c61
    now close md5check.

    Continue Patching Steps:
    now click your windows icon in the lower left-hand of
    your screen. either click run and type "cmd" or if youre
    on windows 7 type "cmd" in the space above the windows
    icon and then hit enter. you should see your dos window
    now.

    type in "cd c:/bsdiff". now type "bspatch PS3UPDAT.PUP

    PS3CFW.PUP patchfile" and hit enter. wait until the
    prompt just says "c:/bsdiff" again, then type "exit"
    and hit enter.

    open up "md5check.exe" again. this time browse to
    "PS3CFW.PUP" and click on calculate md5 checksum button.
    you should see:
    2be5e87a22bf1e7f48e98fcabd38977b

    if all has gone well so far, delete the "PS3UPDAT.PUP"
    file in your "c:/bsdiff" folder. now rename the
    "PS3CFW.PUP" file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP".
    End Patching Steps.
    Procedure.
    now connect a usb flashdrive to your computer. make sure
    its formatted to "FAT32". if you dont know how, right
    click on your drive and click on properties. if it doesnt
    say "FAT32" next to filesystem then hit close, right click
    on your drive again, and click format. under file system,
    scroll down to "FAT32", then click format.

    now that your "FAT32" usb drive is hooked up, create a
    folder on the drive named "PS3". inside your "PS3" folder,
    create another folder named "UPDATE".

    now copy your patched or already patched download from this site
    "PS3UPDAT.PUP" file into the "PS3/UPDATE" folder on your usb drive.

    now copy your "lv2.pkg" file from your "usb" folder on
    your desktop to the usb drive, but not inside the "PS3"
    folder or "PS3/UPDATE" folder.

    now go to your ps3 console and turn it off.
    next, hold down your power button until your ps3 turns
    on and then beeps 3-times and turns off again.
    let go of the button when off.
    now hold down the power button until the ps3 beeps once and
    then twice and then let go of the button.
    you should now see the recovery screen. if it asks you
    to plug in your remote, then do it and hit the ps button.
    scroll down to option (6) system update and hit x.
    follow the prompts.
    once the update is finished, your ps3 will reboot.

    you've done it. great job.

    any .pkg file you want to install, just put it on your
    usb drive and go to the install pkg files button under games
    on your xmb. if you run a backup manager like "multiman",
    you need to click on the "lv2.pkg" icon under games first.
    just click x at the white screen and it will take you back
    to the xmb. in the meantime you must run "lv2.pkg" after
    every boot to run your backup managers.

    ive tried to make this painfully simple. this is way longer
    than it needed to be but i hope it helps someone.

    I recommend this fw, I'm running it as we speak. I'm still not responsible for related problems though.

    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.

    I never once had to use the recovery menu. Only use it if you have to.

    USING! works great! but I have been experiencing a few hickups. couple of crashes now and then. they will work out the kinks eventually I am sure but the most important thing is that it does not brick the system!

    I get a few weird things from time to time. When I launched Lv2 .pkg for the syscalls, the Ps3 displayed in 1080p, but I'm running over component, so it wouldn't display. You just have to press X. Otherwise, If you launch too many things too quickly, or a backup with no disc inside, the Ps3 will freeze. Anything like that on yours?

    Works for me on my UK Launch Phat (CECHC03)
    3.41-> 3.55 official -> recovery mode to Kmeaw cfw3.55
    Though I cheated a bit and got a pre-pactched Kmeaw cfw3.55, I don't think I used yours kkeerrzzoo but I'm sure it does the same job.

    I did check the MD5 against the one in this tut using MD5checker, thanks for those

    I've tried WRC with multiman 1.12.05 without a disc and it worked, after an update too.
    Going to try GT5 but I've got to replace the modded files with new ones, or run a downloaded update patch, as someone mentioned. Think I'll try that way.

    Thanks for the tut jerkov :)

    Mine all worked out too, and my Emulators still run without LV2 being run. They also ran on OFW 3.55, so if this did not work out for me, at least I still had the three emulators on it.

    this worked for me thank you. Its tough being new to this and having to run the gauntlet to find something that doesn't require you to know how this stuff is normally applied. I will say that i had turned off ps3, then held the power button until it shut on/off, then i released my touch, then i turned it back on holding down the power button and i got a 3rd (double beep) to get into the recovery screen. following your tutorial, it kept asking me to set up hdmi options, but i got past it :)

    I was just given this ps3 for nothing so i figured i'd see whats on the scene. Now i just have to figure this non spinning disc bs.
