[Answered] Updating PS3 firmware clears trace of homebrew?
Hello. I'm going to update my other PS3 to 3.56 to sign in to PSN, specifically, in order to play Call of Duty: Black Ops online... So, question: does the update clear everything? ie., the history of my homebrew (ie.,boot_history.dat and patch.bat)... I'm already going to delete the backup manager and all other homebrew apps before the update...heck I'll even delete the GAMEZ folder from the internal HDD.
So basically, does updating to 3.56 remove all trace of homebrew so that I can play online without worry? Shall I update through System Recovery instead? Shall I try running the Wipe History app before updating?
since no ps3's have been banned lets just say yes it'll make it safe.
Potentially the PS3 may have already been flagged and may get a ban in the future but thats just pure speculation.
though to make yourself feel better you can run the wipe history app first.
