    i have 4.82 with HAN, do i need to install it again after updating to 4.84?

    This didn’t work so well for me. After installing HFW 4.84 I haven’t been able to downgrade to 4.82 or use any of the pkg files I’d already installed. Others have had the same problem, and have had to run a series of programs on the PS3 as a workaround. I’d wait for the issues with the firmware to be smoothed out before you install it, especially if you already have a hacked version of 4.82 on your system.

      You can’t downgrade/install full custom firmware yet. Need to wait for the nand/nor dumper and writer tools to be updated.

    I think there is no need to install the 4.84 is you already have the 4.82 HAN.
    If you want to use PSN just use the proxy server.
    Wololo should make a totorial for this.

      This is bad advice.

      There is no reason to stay on 4.82 (especially if your connecting to PSN).
      That is sending an un-needed RED FLAG by being on a lower CFW and conencting to PSN.

    Does this now mean I can mod my CECH-3001A?
    I was told that it is impossible about six months ago.

    @wololo this has been updated to 4.84.2 (corrected a bug)
    and Flash and Dumper tools have been released
    (i.e. CFW installs now possible again)

    All info in source link above in article for psx-place

    Hi I have a problem when I try to install it says: The lastest version of the system software is already installed. There is no need to update.
