This is the most latest news in the PS3 hacking scene, yesterday Flukes1 released the lv1/lv2 Peek/Poke Tools and now just minutes ago, Waninkoko has released the latest Custom Firmware v3.55 for PS3 that allows the installation of homebrew applications. Even the PS3 game backups could be run using this firmware, however we have yet to see any dedicated backup manager for PS3 firwmare 3.55 that makes the loading of games and management easy for regular gamers.
How to Install Custom Firmware v3.55 on PS3
Disclaimer: This is only meant for running legal copies of games that you own, Install the custom firmware at your own risk.
Do not install on PS3 Slim as of now, some users are facing bricking issues.
Note: Check the PUP Hashes before flashing
PUP MD5: 6eab7f1deea1ed46a1dc9924fd7080b3
PUP SHA1: 771e0f2431f15c7edd323899fbab810f32e35aba
To be on the safer side, install Original PS3 firmware 3.55 and then follow the steps given above.
Update: Do not try this method on 60GB PS3 firmware, there are too many bricking reports coming in.
Our advice: Do not use this firmware on any PS3 version. It is just not worth the risk.
Wait for waninkoko’s next release, he has posted on his twitter that he is working on new CFW with no brick risk.
