Here's a webMAN_MOD_1.47.09_Updater.pkg that supports PS4 4.84 CFW, and from Bobby_Downgrades on the PS3 4.84 OVERFLOW CFW Collection notes:

Here are the links for the read me files for each version. Each read me is also included inside each download:
Lastly, some notes:
  • Standard = a normal version of CFW
  • Cobra = a CFW that runs the Cobra payload
  • No BD = can be installed onto a PS3 with no Blu-ray drive and still functions as normal (minus discs)
  • No BT = can be installed onto a PS3 with broken Bluetooth/Wifi module (bypasses install of Bluetooth FW)
Please always read the READ ME.txt files inside download. I have not included Webman inside the CFW as too many people complained.

I have tested all CFW versions and am certain there will be no problems but as always with CFW you install at your own risk.

When I have more time I will update toolbox and spoofers for overflow CFW and I have a couple of new things planned, will get to that when I can find the time, as always thank you to the people who support the overflow brand.

If you just want to spoof your FW version have a look out for ZoFmodz, he has been releasing spoofers since 4.55 and has consistently been the first person to release. He stopped releasing a few fw versions ago due to people taking his work but I have persuaded him to release again. So if you don't want to update CFW and just want to spoof check him out.

:arrow: Finally, below is another PS3 4.84 Dualboot Firmware from littlebalup with details as follows to quote:

Download: (196.37 MB)
  • Made out from OFW 4.84.
  • Patched isoldr and spu_pkg_rvk_verifier to disable ecdsa protections allowing to install CFW 4.84 and above over it.
  • Core OS patched files have the exact same size than the OFW.
  • Core OS file table is exactly the same than the OFW.
  • PUP size is exactly the same than the OFW.
More stealth than it, its an OFW ;)

Tested on both NAND (CECHC04) and NOR (CECH-2004B).

I am in need of some serious help with a 500 gig samsung hdd. I have tried everything to get it to work with my ps3. For some reason the prompt for system restore was almost finished 99% and then cancelled on me.

I've used a program to completely wipe the hdd which worked and the drive functions. I've formatted several times NTFS/FAT. I am wondering if the old owner has a password locked to the hdd? If so, how do I go about unlocking it? Or maybe I need to jump the drive from SATAI to SATAII?

Also, this is weird. I've connected the hdd several times and formatted the drive under disk management option only to find out when I re-connect the hdd externally it says it's "unallocated" This is a mystery? Please, someone HELP!

@Doc Holiday
try computer manager (on desktop my computer/this PC, R mouse click on win 7 or 10.
  • select this 500gb hdd and erase all partition (delete volume no all partitions)
  • then format full hdd to NTFS and then go to PS3.
another option is under linux - partitions managers (HIREN boot cd) from usb stick have usefull SW for disk partitions!

I managed to FIX the HDD issue!! After at least 20 attempts!! I used a program called KILL DISK of which wiped it really well!! I also did a thorough format in disk management to exFAT and installed it back in the ps3. I ran system restore only to find at %99 completed it froze... WTF... How? Huh?

Before almost shouting some profanity and ripping some hair from my head my girlfriend called me to the kitchen for dinner and said leave that stuff alone. I left the message on the screen with the loading sign in the corner swirling... Get this... by leaving it be and not pressing X to opt out... it bypassed the message and then prompted me to install 4.84!!!

System is running well and I managed to gain a free 500 gig hdd!!! :p
