    I bought a PS3 (slim I think?) like 6 years ago when the usb hack came out. I hacked it, copied a game over, put about 10 hours on it, and it has gathered dust since then. I think I completely wiped and reloaded it after that but that was still years ago. I know nothing at all about the current state of ps3 hacking. Where do I begin? I don't do any online play so I'm not worried about getting banned, if that's an issue. All I'm really looking to do is copy my games to the hdd and play them from there without discs. I've hacked all my other systems so it's time to get the PS3 souped up. Please point me to the proper guides, info, etc. Thank you.

    Sorry, took a bit to get my controller working. I'm on 3.7.

    I found the minimum version check tool and it said 3.4.

    TrueBlue Dongle man that was way back in 2012 or late 2011 but yeah anything over 3.55 is gonna require an E3 Flash for a hard downgrade. Thats what you need to look at if
    you really want to hack it again
