How to install Custom Firmware on PS3 for Pirated Games, OtherOS/Linux Support [PS3 Slim, Fat]

Download ps3 utilities and ps3 tools from github / team fail0verflow using these commands on your Linux PC:

    • git clone
    • cd ps3utils
    • make
    • cd ..
    • git clone git://
    • cd ps3tools
    • make
    • cp pkg unpkg ../ps3utils
  1. Grab the PS3 encryption/decryption/signing keys from github:
    • git clone ~/.ps3
  2. Download PS3 3.55 (or whatever official firmware PUP) from here
  3. Extract and copy “PS3UPDAT.PUP” to the “ps3utils” directory
  4. Create the PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) from the original/official update (OFW):
    • cd ps3utils
  5. Copy and rename CFW.PUP to a USB storage device keeping this directory structure in mind: /PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP
  6. Connect that USB device to your PS3 and install from Settings -> System Update

If you’re currently running 3.41 (or earlier) you can either remain there and create a specific CFW PUP for that version, or you can upgrade to a later PS3 firmware version, like 3.55 for example. It’s whatever original PUP file you use – only you cannot flash a version lower than the current version installed on your PS3. So if you’re already at 3.55, where you’re unable to downgrade, then for the moment you have no other choice but CFW (or OFW) 3.55. 3.41 on the other hand: upgrade or create CFW 3.41 and for the interim you’re still able to jailbreak and run unsigned ‘brews. See the other notes below.
