We have already discussed in the previous article that PS3 Jailbreak 4.85 (HEN) has been released. After version 4.82 it is necessary to install HFW firmware before jailbreak PS3. We have also discussed HFW firmware which was released a few days after Sony live 4.85 under the name of PS3 HFW 4.85.1. CFW means Custome firmware. Maybe you heard about Rebug, Forrex, Overflow and other CFW names. But people mostly trust and use rebug CFW. I also mostly use and recommend rebug CFW.

So as you know, no update has come after PS4 rebug 4.84.2 and we need CFW. So we can go with others. As far as I have done research. PS3 Overflow 4.85 is the only safe and trusted firmware for now. If you are already a CFW user. Then you can simply update your PS3 firmware by using this PS3 Overflow 4.85 CFW. If you are updating your firmware and change rebug to overflow. Then you should read my previous article where you’ll learn how to play PS3 games without update. We already have discussed once on our article how to convert PS3 4.85 OFW to CFW.

To complete that process you need a CFW and you can’t go with the lower version. We will discuss later the difference between rebug and overflow custom firmware. The important thing is, once you install CFW firmware on your PlayStation 3 console. Then anytime you can overwrite your wish CFW.
