First you will need to dowload the following files:
- 3.55 OFW
If you are not on 3.55 already you will need to extract the files from the 3.55 OFW to your USB drive. Copy the .pup file into the folder -> X:\PS3\UPDATE\
You must type it exactly as shows with the caps. X is your drive letter whatever it may be on your PC.
Now insert the usb into your PS3, go into system setting and select udpate from usb.
Now that your PS3 is updated to 3.55 extract the files from the 3.55 ITA CFW to your USB drive. Copy the .pup file into the folder -> X:\PS3\UPDATE\
Make sure you deleted the 3.55 OFW .pup file.
-Now turn off your PS3

- Select update system, update from usb stick.
- Follow the instruction on the screen.
- Do not touch your PS3 while it is updating, it will reboot, the screen will go black sometimes etc. this is normal.
Once your PS3 is updated go to game, you will see some new folders here.
One is install .pkg files
Go back to your PC and extract all of the files from the multiman rar file to your usb stick.
Also extract the files from BDEMU.rar to the root of your usb stick.
Now go back to your PS3 and select install .pkg files, you will need to install the multiman Ver 1.16.11 base.pkg file and the BDEMU-355KM.pkg file.
