ATTENTION: For now, all users who wants DLC and PS2 classics must stick to CFW4.30 v2.05
This CFW does have LV1 checks disabled and can be installed on Downgraded PS3 consoles even if not dehashed after downgrade. Just in case anyone still need to dehash, here's the link Link ----> Dehashing Tutorial
Always make a NOR/Nand dump using multiMAN before installing any CFW to have a recovery backup in case of any bricks.
Having a valid NOR/Nand dump is an essential step before upgrading, because you will always have a chance to recover when you have a valid dump.
** A Hardware Flasher alone without a valid dump may not fix your bricked PS3 **
Please Check the MD5 of the downloaded PUP file before installing any CFW to avoid possible bricks.
DO NOT HAVE DISC IN PS3 WHEN UPDATING FIRMWARES..As the PS3 will take the UPDATE from the DISC First.
You need to be already on a 3.55OFW or 3.55/4.21/4.30/4.40 CFW to install this. Installing from any OFW > 3.55 won't work. (Hardware Flasher needed)
