    ive been modding my 2DS for a while. And my Wii U. I just found my PS3 Power cable and I want to mod/hack that. What guide should I follow? Also, I have my GTA SA iso back up, can I install that? And can I install my GTA V backup? Probably wont even play those but whatever. My PS3 is a slim CECH-300B and Firmware is the latest.

    Can't you use the E3 flasher to patch the NOR with a flash for the current CFW then just install the latest CFW?

    u can't. 3K systems use a different metldr, so they're unhackable currently.

    check this out: http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/SKU_Models

    this contains the information I mentioned. all the way up to 3.56 downgrade-wise is hackable. 3.56 is iffy and only with 2500 models. u have to check the date code. 3 and 4K models use a different metldr with an unknown key.
