PS3 320GB slim - 3.55 cfw - best option cfw and other apps?

Post by law56kerx » Sat Sep 03, 2016 12:38 am

Hello, I bought the Ps3 sports champion bundle many moons ago. I believe it has the first release of barebones custom firmware 3.55 on it which i put on it 5 or 6 years ago. I want to upgrade to the best option to optimize this version of the PS3.

What is the best cfw options? How do i upgrade the newest/best cfw option from 3.55 cfw. Is psone/ps2 emulation possible? What should I backup on my system before I upgrade. Besides cfw, what are other valuble programs and apps i should use. Thanks

Rebug is best IMHO, I run it on my DECHA so can't exactly say if its the best for a retail system but hey.
To update just run the installer like any other update from USB.

Now as for PS1/PS2 yes you can run them on a non BC system, PS1 is the same on any PS3 since its a software emulator but PS2 is a little tricky.
I won't be of much help here since my PS3 has full PS2 hardware BC so everything works fine but for your slim I think you need some kind of launcher or a converter or something.
PS2 does work tho just not 100%

Thanks for the info. Wow your ps3 still runs well, the early versions of the xbox360 and ps3 seemed notorious for breaking down.

Use Rebug 4.80.1 and install Rebug Toolbox 2.02.10 Full. Enable Cobra and Webman.

I've got 20 PS2 ISO's on my PS3 ripped from my own discs and they run 100%. No launchers or anything. Just drop your ISO in dev_hdd0/PS2IS0. Access Webman then Webman Settings, refresh xml and games list. Restart PS3. Go in to Webman again, PS2 folder, select and load game, press yes to close browser, back on the XMB just presss X on PS2 disc icon. done. :)
