For all those who incur 8002F157 error, it means you have not enabled MODE 'ON DEBUG ON via the qaflag and then have to do the deashing on the console.

To correct this error: Install CFW 4.21 Rebug or CFW that allows you to activate the qa flag and the mode 'debugging. Upgrade to OFW 3:55 for two times in a row. That's right, to install RECOVERY twice the OFW 3.55. Proceed with the installation of any other CFW's.

I remind you that the starting point of this custom firmware is 3:55 Original Firmware or any Custom Firmware.


It is recommended that, after a successful installation of custom firmware, run:

  • Settings> [System Settings]> [Restore Default Settings]. (From XMB)
  • Restore File System (Recovery)
  • Rebuild Database (Recovery)

So, you will have a clean install and you'll be fine (Thanks to franci97 & SonyForever).

My system was not plugged into any internet connection, no disc in the bluray player, and the MD5 showed the correct numbers that OFW466FERROXDB.PUP was legit. But now my system boots up and shows official 4.66 in the system info and all the cfw icons are gone.

Please, please someone tell me that I have to boot the PS3 up in a special way to get to the CFW and my system really is not crap now. If it is I want to know how that happened???

Update: Never mind it appear I can downgrade it back with the Rogero downgrader. I have not been in the scene for well over a year, it would sure help if some operating instructions were posted. How about a good old fashion "Tutorial" for us noobs.

It's end users responsibility to find things out if you don't know what something is or does. It's not developers fault if you're too lazy to do some research for things you don't understand. If you wan't to know what this is, just use google and a little of your time, I did when first DB OFW came out, and now I know what it is
