[Answered] New idea about cheat PS3 firmware update?
I have new idea to cheat PS3 update FW to 3.42. I use Hex editor to edit FW 3.41 by replace the string 3.41 to 3.42 then save after that update PS3 with this new file.
Is this success or not ?
Even if you change all of the 3.41 to 3.50 or whatever, you will fail. The update might start - but when you are about to start the installation, it will fail.
In PSP happens the same. This happens because when you change the code (in this case, hex editing) the Sony signature dies - so you can't start the update anymore.
Tricking Sony isn't easy.
