    [Answered] Upgrading to PS3 OFW Firmware help?

    Sponsored Links
    When I have 3.55 kmeaw installed and want to upgrade to 3.72 original can I update by just installing the 3.72 OFW?

    Do i need to uninstall anything before I do so?

    Just re-format the HDD (to erase the data) or do what HellX said and delete all your Homebrew + Games stored in the HDD and you should be safe.

    delete all installed games from your HDD (GAMES folder) and anything else CFW related.

    I haven't heard any reports of people getting banned for having homebrew on a OFW PS3, but it's best to delete the homebrew just for safety measures. Like you said, you never know.
