    It's meant to be a temporary solution until devs finds another exploit (like those gateway shit).
    It's sad, but that's how it is.

    Guyzz I just got this PS3 slim I don't know if it's hackable (without a hardware), may I have some help on this?

    It's a PS3 Slim 2511A. I ran MinVerChk and it said the lowest version I could downgrade is 3.6; Am I screwed? May MinVerChk be wrong, by any chance?
    I'd love to see this shit running

    Unfortunately that PS3 model is not downgradable. 250XX and below only.

    Welp, gonna look for hardware modding it then (will have to pay for it though, as I'm dumb as a door when it involves hardware)

    Afaik there is no hardware modding on the ps3 that allows downgrading. Well there is the Cobra ODE, but that only allows piracy.

    No homebrew, just backups. It's not a full hack, just a workaround to get backups loading. It'll likely be patched out with the next system update.

    Backs is enough for the moment I guess! Now to block system updates...... Here's hoping there's more to come with this exploit!

    Except nothing more will, its not an "exploit", just a workaround. You'll never get anything more than playing backups. Think of it like a Sky3ds, it doesn't use any fancy hacks or anything to run backups so it's restricted to games only.

    Damn. A shame really. And reading further into it, it seems not even all games work on it either? Something about a list?

    Edit:Sorry, I'm not all that versed in stuff to do with the ps3. It's been a long time since I've even looked at the thing.

    your PS3 it's not properly hackable, but you can run backup *cough* pirated *cough* games
    there's also a workaround for ofw 4.81 on daxhordes

    Don't downgrades require certain models of ps3? As in no superslims?
