    Default True Blue Dongle Setup

    Hey guys, i've been trynna look for answers but i can't seem to get a definate. If someone can just clarify some of my questions i would be greatful.
    Ok, so i just got my TB dongle from a friend of mine and i wanted to test this baby out. Like most of you guys i'm on Kmeaw 3.55CFW. what EXACTLY do i need to do? do i go to OFW first? or install the dongle FW on top of Kmeaw? that's what's kinda confusing. Another thing i wanted to ask was, will the other games that used to run on 3.55Kmeaw, also run on the new dongle firmware?

    I know it's a lot, but any help would great, thanks a lot fellas

    Setting up your PS3

    Before you may use True Blue, you must first install the 3.55‐Dongle custom firmware onto your PS3. This is similar in function to the well known kmeaw CFW; however it also includes modifications which allow True Blue to operate correctly. The 3.55‐Dongle firmware updater is distributed in a file labelled “TrueBlue‐3.55‐CFW.ZIP”, and may be obtained through an internet search – once you have obtained it, please confirm the validity of the PS3UPDAT.PUP file contained within the ZIP archive by matching with one of the following hashes:

    MD5: 43C522F8897D77B6165F95BCF3409090
    SHA1: A64B010DB98996C7E53768D37D4D346F271D5950

    Once you have confirmed that you have obtained the correct updater file, proceed with the update as follows:
    Obtain a USB storage device such as a USB HDD or USB flash memory stick
    Create a folder on the storage device in which to save the update file. Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the storage device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named "UPDATE"
    Copy the PS3UPDAT.PUP file to the “UPDATE” folder created in step 2. Thus, you will have this path structure on your USB storage device: \PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP
    Boot your PS3 and insert the USB storage device into the PS3
    From the home menu, select (Settings) ‐> (System Update) ‐> (Update via Storage Media)
    The PS3 will notify you that the “3.55‐Dongle” update was found. Select OK then follow the onscreen instructions to complete the update
    After the update has completed, your PS3 will restart and you now be running the 3.55‐Dongle custom firmware. You may now enjoy the use of the True Blue dongle
    (NOTE: The above procedure is only applicable to PS3’s on or below system software v3.55)

    I have 2 ps3 and one of them cant read disks so i avoided to patch it with CFW so i wont brick it.True blue dongle also needs a disk inside driver to avoid bricking?
