    Post How to Install Debug Firmware on Retail PS3 with 1 HDD

    Sponsored Links
    This is based on the method of XVISTAMAN2005 HERE, but with only 1 HDD.

    - You can use it with Debug Firmware 1.60, 1.90, etc.
    - Your system must be at or below 1.60.
    - Download WinHex ([Register or Login to view links]) and register it.

    1. Format hard disk drive on the PS3 system.
    2. Download a Debug PS3 Firmware (http://www.ps3news.com/forums/downlo...p?do=cat&id=21) and place it in USB stick, and start the update. This will copy all the Debug firmware files to the PS3's HDD.

    3. After copied, the PS3 will restart and you will see the normal update menu which prompts you to click the (PS) button to start update. Do NOT update your PS3, but power it

    BEGIN CREATE BACKUP:

    4. Connect HDD to your PC. Open WinHex (register). Tools > Disk Tools > Clone Disk...



    5. It appears this window:



    6. To the right of "Source", click this button:


    It appears this window:



    Select your PS3 HDD.

    7. To the right of "Destination", click this button:


    8. Click "OK".



    9. Finish:



    10. Click "OK" and close WinHex.

    END CREATE BACKUP!

    11. Disconnect HDD, and connect HDD to PS3.
    12. You turn on the PS3. And click (PS), after cancel the installation. Button (O).
    13. Download and copy a Retail PS3 firmware to a USB stick.
    14. Format hard disk drive on the PS3 system.
    15. Again as before place USB in PS3 and update the PS3 as normal but when you get to the screen where it asks for you to press button, do that but stop when it asks you to AGREE to Terms and Condition Page.
    16. While the system is still powered on and on the update screen, REMOVE HDD.

    BEGIN RESTORE BACKUP:

    17. Connect HDD to your PC. Open WinHex (register). Tools > Disk Tools > Clone Disk...



    18. It appears this window:



    19. To the right of "Source", click this button:


    20. To the right of "Destination", click the button


    It appears this window:



    Select your PS3 HDD.

    21. Click "OK".



    22. Finish:



    23. Click "OK" and close WinHex.

    END RESTORE BACKUP!

    24. Disconnect HDD, and connect HDD to PS3.
    25. After restore the HDD continue to update the PS3 as normal and the PS3 will install the debug PS3 Firmware!
    26. Go to the settings and check firmware version and there you will also see the debugging PS3 options, however, they are unusable/inoperable on Retail PS3 consoles.
