I'm new to this ps3 jailbreaking. I bought this 2nd hand PS3 with upgraded HDD (500GB). I checked under system settings and the firmware installed is 3.55. Seller claims that he already installed kmeaw custom firmware.
1. How do I tell what custom firmware is installed? Is there a special way to activate it?
2. Do I need to update already installed application (Multiman, GAIA, Blackbox FTP) in order to play most recent backup games?
I'm still reading tutorial and sticky in this forum, but I was hoping someone could shed some light or point me in the right direction.
No you don't need to delete it, I just install the package file over the previous version from within the XMB. If you get an error installing though, delete the old one and reinstall. If you have any backed up games, check their location before deleting any backup manager. Make sure you move them to \hdd0\GAMES\ before deleting anything.
ATM I'm getting really slow ftp transfer speed. PS3 is connected to PC (with GIGABYTE EX58-UD5) via ethernet cable (CAT5). I'm transferring files from PC to PS3 internal HDD using FlashFXP FTP connection (PS3 is using blackbox ftp 1.2). I'm getting 70KB/s transfer speed , yes 70KB/s
I'm wondering what's wrong with my FTP transfer speed?
yea, directly update to the latest version... It won't be a problem...! And i would suggest you to use gaia to load backups as it has a hardcoded payload which makes it more stable... Load only those games from multiman which gaia is not able to load... That is what i recommend.. rest is on you.
