Just put it on my USB drive under the appropriate directory and go to PS3 XMB's system update?
Or do I need to do all that qa toggle, nand/rom dump or whatnot, in order to prevent bricking?
What about this "recovery mode" thing? Do I need to get into that?
PS3hax page announcing Rogero 4.30 v.2.03
this page doesn't quite explain the answers to my questions. Yes, I can tell I don't need to downgrade to 3.55, but other than that, I have no idea about how to install the update.
PS3hax page announcing 4.30 v. 1.00
here, it says
2- Alternative Way #1 (CFW4.21 --> XMB Update --> CFW4.30)
You can try updating from CFW4.21 to CFW4.30 v1.00 from XMB by using the "System Update --> Update via Storage Media".
If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the Alternative Way #2.
3- Alternative Way #2 (CFW4.21 --> Recovery Menu --> CFW4.30)
You can try updating from CFW4.21 to CFW4.30 v1.00 from Recovery Mode.
If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the first Proper Way (CFW4.21 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.30)
but what about all the other things written on that page like qa toggle and whatnot? Were these done already when my brother updated my PS3 from whatever firmware it used to be to Rogero 4.21 so I can ignore all of that and just do either one of the Alternative Ways?
Edit: sorry, the hyperlinks don't work... it must be prohibited by the forum rules? The links are to PS3hax news pages announcing the respective Rogero releases.
From the Release thread (Rogero 4.30 2.03) at tortuga cove (read everything there, twice):
* This CFW can be installed fine from XMB Update over any OFW3.55/CFW3.55/CFW4.21/CFW4.30.
3- The QA flag is better to be always Enabled on your PS3 for safer upgrading/downgrading operations.
and here is a working link to the news page:
[Release] Rogero CFW 4.30 (v2.03) [XMB "Install Package Files" & No Downgrade Needed] @ PS3HaX
