    i dont recommend this Fw as it has caused many bricks, and if you do plan on using this follow the tut to the letter.

    I believe you would need a nand flasher and maybe a pre bricked nand image. if your Serial number was not on the list or mark as no dont do it.

    Look at kfeaws CFW, it's a LOT more stable and better than this one.

    Yes, but make sure you read the instructions.

    Update your PS3 using recovery mode to the OFW, then use recovery mode to update to Kmeaw's CFW.

    okay so basically i just put on the offical firmware using recovery mode, then use recovery mode again to install Kmeaw's CFW then install the lv2.pkg right. and it will not brick my slim ps3 with that serial number? and can i still do lobbies sorry just don't know to much about ps3. and i know you have to keep installing lv2.pkg when you turn on your ps3 everytime

    Yes if you do that, your PS3 should not brick.

    Yes, you can use any backup manager, such as Open manager, Multiman, etc. Let me know how it went after you go to the kmeaw CFW.
