So let’s get starts.
Q: What is CFW?
A: CFW stands for Custom Firmware. Custom Firmware (CFW) is an unofficial modified version of firmware created by third parties on game devices and embedded device (examples printer, thermostat, calculator, video game console, etc.) to provide new features or to unlock hidden functionality. In references to the Videogame, you can also say that the altered version of the original system software is also known as Custom Firmware (CFW) inside a game console like as the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo 3DS. Custom Firmware (CFW) often allows ROM image backups to run directly within the game console. The current version of CFW/jailbreak is 4.81 v2.0, which is currently available.
Q: What is OFW?
A: OFW stands for official firmware. It is the real firmware which is put out by the Sony themselves into the game consoles. OFW can be modded, which then turns to MFW or CFW.
Q: What is MFW?
A: MFW stands for modded firmware. It also works as a CFW but is less featured then CFW. The developers say that it is harmful to your game console also because it may damage your console hard drive. So it’s better for you that you always away from MFW or ignores it.
