    {Tutorial} How to PROPERLY Do A Data Transfer

    Post by iPROFamily on Sat May 21, 2011 10:49 am

    Alright so I've found A LOT of confusion, questions, stupid/pointless threads on how to do a Data Transfer. It's VERY simple.
    I can upload a video if need be. It'll be recorded from my phone, with decent quality. SO! Here we go.

    1:Make sure BOTH PS3's are internet DISABLED.

    2: Both systems should be OFF when doing this next
    step. Simply use an Ethernet Cable and plug it into BOTH PS3 systems.
    Your PS3 system should have come with a yellow Ethernet Cable, or, you
    can go to your router, and use that Ethernet Cable. (ya know, the one
    that is plugged into the router to the computer?) Razz

    3: Turn on both systems.

    4: It doesn't matter which one you do first, as I've found out,
    which ever is easier for you. On either PS3, you should have both
    plugged into your TV, obviously. One with an HDMI cord, and the other
    with an AVCHD (wtfe it's called) {The standard connection it comes with}
    so that way, you can switch screens on your TV. Or if you prefer, two
    HDMI cables. Whatever.

    5: Now on which ever console you choose to do first, preferably
    the one you're transferring the information over to, example, you're
    wanting to transfer your MW2 patch on your CFW 3.55 over to your 3.61.
    On your CFW 3.55 system from the XMB, go to Settings>System Settings>Data Transfer Utility.

    6: Click on you want to transfer this SHI* over to the other
    system. It'll ask you disable your account, wtfe you might want to do.
    If you want to do this, DO IT. Because once it's transferred, EVERYTHING will be deleted. Your game saves, etc will be ERASED. Just save it to a USB flash drive, and you'll be good. Then once you get to the setting where it asks you to press ok, SWITCH SCREENS. DON'T PRESS X YET!!!!

    7: Go back to the other screen with your 3.61 firmware, and do the same as above. From the XMB, go to Settings>System Settings>Data Transfer Utility. Select the SECOND OPTION. You want to receive the SHI* from your CFW 3.55 system. Obviously. BUT DON'T PRESS X YET ON THAT ONE EITHER!!!!

    8: Here's where it gets tricky. Here's where 90% of people will
    fail, and the Ethernet Cable WILL NOT be recognized. I have both
    controllers in my hands, so it's ok. I know which one is connected to
    which console, and I suggest you do too, or you'll just **** up.

    9: Using the controller for the 3.55 CFW system, press X.

    10: IMMEDIATELY after pressing X, press X on the other controller. (The 3.61 firmware) Maybe wait about 1 second before pressing.

    ****NOTE**** It will tell you to switch screens to choose the settings
    you desire, but no. It will timeout before you are able to do this. Make
    DAMN sure you know your PSN E-Mail and Password, because these will be
    DELETED. You'll have to register with PSN again using an existing PSN
    account. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Swap the screen back to the firmware 3.61 system, and watch it. See if
    it tells you that before you complete the transfer, the system will have
    to do a system restore. (It flies by, depending on what you have on the
    3.55 system) Click yes, then click yes again, and you're good to go.

    What I HAVE noticed, after many, frustrating attempts, it sometimes
    recognizes, and sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't, turn both systems
    off, and just replug your Ethernet Cable back into the back, and start
    over. It's very easy guys, I promise. It just sometimes doesn't
    recognize, and you get pissed off! It might take a few tries before you
    get it, but once you do, a sigh of relief will come, I promise. If
    you're still confused, send me a message to make a video. Once it
    clicks, you'll be Data Transferring with no problems. Just don't get
    pissed off, and throw your controller out the window. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
    It might fail the first few tries, but it WILL work. Simple, easy to
    follow. The other tutorials I found while trying to figure it out were
    stupid, and just told you go to your System Settings, and do it that
    way. No. There's tricks involved. I hope this helps you guys out, and
    instead of doing the complicated spoofer to get online and play your MW2
    mods, just go find another PS3, and keep it updated. It's the best way
    to go.

    Here are some questions I seen mentioned in the comments:

    1) will i need to activate the map packs again? Map
    Packs- I've looked, and searched, and nothing. All I could find was IF
    you lose a map pack/ forget your PSN information, you are able to
    re-download the map pack up to 5 times. I think the map pack is saved
    via the PSN User Name. Since you're not changing HDD's, you'll have to
    re-install your Map Packs.

    2) will it transfer all my accounts? NO. You'll lose your
    PSN accounts, along with game saves. You'll have to go back into PSN,
    and just simply select 'Use an existing account.' Simple.

    3) will it transfer my pictures? Do you REALLY have THAT many pictures that you can't just put them back on your USB flash drive? [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
    Come on man. If the pictures aren't on your 3.55 system, then you might
    lose them, you might not. I might just copy a picture over, and see if
    it'll transfer. It probably won't, as my 3.61 console had a SHI* load of
    music, and when completing the Data Transfer, all of the music was
    gone. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    4) i got the map packs of my m8 & i dont want to transfer
    because all the kids keep lying & say random SHI* about map packs
    deactivating, is it true?
    Once again this is targeted towards
    Question 1. I suggest keep googling, or go to Sony's website, and see if
    they state on whether or not your DLC Map Packs will be saved. Always a
    chance, but then again, it's ok. If it doesn't transfer your Map Pack
    over, which I'm pretty sure it wouldn't, just sign back up with your old
    PSN Username, and re-download it. (You are able to download a Map Pack
    after purchase up to 5 times.) And since you got yours for free, I just
    can't say 100%. I know you lose EVERYTHING on the 3.61. You could also
    give Sony a call, and see what they tell you. They know more about the
    DLC Map Pack SHI* then I do. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
