    [Answered] PS3 4.41 OFW to CFW problem help?

    Sponsored Links
    So today I made the big mistake to upgrade my console to 4.41 and now I have no idea how to put CFW since nothing works, it always says that the data is corrupted... I have tried with SO MANY files and nothing... I can't obviously downgrade it without a flasher or any other and I am absolutely stuck... Please help

    P.S. I'm very new in all of this stuff so don't be too harsh, I'm still a newbie

    If in the states I do these downgrades. You are stuck without a hardware flasher. Thanks.

    I'm sorry but any firmware you install that came from official sony higher than 3.55 will prevent you to have custom firmware unless you're on 3.55 or lower. did you just updated from a custom firmware before? what model number of your ps3 do you have?

    the model is 7D, and I update it from Internet

    Is there anything I can do? I'm trying to get the CFW 4.41 Rebug but I keep getting errors that the data is corrupted...

    i think there's no ps3 that has a model number of 7d, you could find it underneath the console if you have the slim version (not the superslim version). It should be like "CECH-2XXX" So if you have the ps3 slim with the digit of 2 on the start of the numbers, well you have a chance of downgrading it then do the jailbreak. ps3s with like "CECH-3xxx" are unjailbreakable and undowngradable.

    But you know what if you really dont have a chance to have custom firmware, well sony's official firmwares are for yours. you could buy second handed games or trade for getting cheap games. and of course, worry-free of getting connected to psn online.

    Another question, does your console is still usable? what do you mean to the error message "data is corrupted"? can't you get to the xmb?

    My console is jailbreakable, I have checked it's not slim it's fat, and I think it still works fine, I'm just getting those errors when I try to install the CFW 4.41 Rebug or anything else actually...

    Once you've upgraded to OFW 4.41, your stuck on it, unless you have a flasher, there is no other way, sorry.

    Well, obviously you can't do that yourself, you have to take it to a specialist as I did

    Apparently, when you update it to 4.41 OFW the system is preventing you from downgrading it with a software you have to use an external hardware flasher. I suggest you take it to a professionalist, because to put this flasher you have to open your ps3, and that's a serious stuff to do cause if you don't know what you're doing you might break it

    For 2 days of reading I became an absolute pro in this area ahah
