PS3 Jailbreak 4.85 OFW to CFW

by Shaaz (Admin)

You will be very happy to have this information, as it was possible to convert PS3 OFW 4.84 to CFW 4.84. After the Sony PS3 4.85 live update, it is now possible to convert PS3 OFW 4.85 to CFW 4.85. I do not know how much Serious you take on Jailbreak 4.85 or any jailbreak process of any firmware. But here your attention is very important. When anything is understood, it becomes easy. But until it is known, it remains a difficult task.

PS3 Jailbreak 4.85 is easy process but also sensitive. Because one of your mistakes can brick your PS3 console. The chances of being repressed are very less. So, activate your awareness here and read this article carefully. First of all, the conversion process of PS3 OFW 4.85 to CFW 4.85 does not support every PS3 console model. In the PS3 Jailbreak Compatibility List, you will know whether your console model supports this process or not. Secondly, you must have heard about PS3 MinVer. So also you have to check whether your console remains under 3.55 or not. You will get all that process below. If you are wondering can I convert my PS3 fat model OFW to CFW. The answer is quite simple, of course you can.

Some of you will have PS3 slim models. So you can also slim convert it but with limited models. So you have to check the model in the PS3 jailbreak compatibility list. Now the question arises whether the PS3 Super Slim can also be converted? So, remove this thing from your mind and if you do not want to brick your PS3 console, then do not follow this process at all. Every console model of PS3 gets jailbreak in today’s time, but the methods are different. You can not install CFW on your console, but you can jailbreak your PS3 Super Slim 4.86. As I have mentioned earlier, after PS3 4.82 firmware, before applying any jailbreak, PS3 HFW installation process is necessary. In my previous article, I have written about PS3 HFW 4.85. So let’s start our jailbreak process.

I’m on 4.84 OFW/HFW, Can I install directly PS3 HFW 4.85.1?

Yes, you can, but it’s not recommended. If you install HFW directly. Then you have to install it twice. If you don’t, then you may have to face problems of freezing the PS3. First of all, you have to install 4.85 OFW, whether you choose to do that USB or from the Internet.

I’m getting PS3 Update 8002F957 error message. What should I do?

Mainly we have just followed the above 20 steps. That is to fix this error (8002F957). See all the steps once again and follow.

Shaz, I have followed all instructions, but when I compared the compatibility list of my PS3 super slim CECH-4303C on it is mention that it is NOR supported, but however in the it has not mention about any super slim PS3. Do you think I will brick my super slim PS3 CECH-4303C during that process?

Shaaz (Admin) November 16, 2019 - 10:34 am

You are safe. This is my self made compatibility list. You are good to go with HFW/Exploit installer. Do not try any HFW process.

Hi Shaaz, I am on 4.85 OFW and want to install 4.85 CFW. I have a PS3 slim (model # cech2501b). I noticed in your video the file you copied to your ps3/update folder was around 5 MB KB but the one I downloaded was 200 MB. I just want to make sure I am following instructions correct because I dont want to brick my PS3. Also in step #4 above it says to Copy PS3 HFW 4.85.1 and paste it under UPDATE folder but the file inside the .zip file I downloaded is HFW 4.85.1 PS3UPDAT.PUP and not PS3 HFW 4.85.1. I just want to make sure I downloaded the correct file before I do anything else. Thanks for your help and putting this tutorial together!

Shaaz (Admin) March 31, 2020 - 10:56 am

First you need to check your PS3 compatibility with MinVer same as you update your PS3. If you got message on your screen below 3.55 then you can easily install HFW 4.85.2 or 4.85.1. Once you installed HFW on your PS3 then you can go with further steps.

supadups March 31, 2020 - 9:42 pm

I will give it a try. Thanks for the reply!

supadups April 4, 2020 - 4:34 pm

Hi Shaz, there is no index_nor or index_nand file in the file. There are only the files below. I have a NOR supported system (CECH 2501b) so Im not sure if I should launch the han_enabler or han_installer files instead? Here is the file listing of the zip file:
