Thanks pereb27, didn't know exactly what part of it was the model #.
OK, got that information:
Model #: CECHK01
Also: I really only plan to play ToV on this PS3, and that it.
I don't think any of the other few PS3 games I own (only have a few) have a firmware update on them or not, how to do I check?
I also did some searching and got some files, but don't know if I need them or not:
* Ps3 Downgrader Files [Attached file 'DGF.JPG' for info]
* EOBDII FLASHER1250.rar [Attached file: 'EOBDII FLASHER1250' for info]
*BUT I won't try anything until I get information from this board on what to do.*
Thanks again and sorry for the questions, still learning here.
You can use E3 flasher, since your model has NOR. Only thing you need just in case is do the tristaste to SBE in order to avoid some problems in the future.
So you are good to go.
Don't install any .PUP or use youtube videos to downgrade. You have tutorials here and in my sig link to ps3devwiki.
P.s: The model of your PS3 or manufacture date, etc it's on the rear close to the AC connector. And check the SKU
models on ps3devwiki for better reference.
