151w ago - Yesterday we reported on flukes1 releasing his LV1 and LV2 Peek and Poke PS3 Tools, and today Wutangrza has released a LV1 / LV2 Peek and Poke CFW Patch for enabling it in PlayStation 3 version 3.55 Custom Firmware.
Rename PS3CFW.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP and thats it! You now have an official 3.55 with lv1/lv2 peek and poke enabled
You're now ready to install the PUP, make sure your console has 3.55 official firmware installed, prior to flashing the peek and poke enabled version. You will need to install it from the recovery menu.
Also, after flashing the 3.55 peek and poke enabled CFW, you can then install Geohot's CFW. You will still retain lv1/lv2 peek and poke.

From festizio on FIX PERMISSIONS: It seems that a lot of folks are having issues installing and running backups on there Ps3′s due to the bug in PL3 that effects file permissions. Here is what I have been doing to get around the black screen hangs and disc read errors.
1. fire up multiman, blackb0x, whatever ftp & transfer your backup
2. run your lv2 pkg of choice
3. run the fix permissions app that is installed from running the package located above
The app will go through the HD and correct the file permission errors that come with using PL3. I have been using this method after each game backup I install, however if you install (ftp/copy) 5 at a time the app only needs to be run once and it will fix all 5 games as it does its magic to the entire drive.
Now as far as USB, hampster driven HD's etc I can not say as I do not have any of the above so I have not tested it myself.
