    It seems there is a lot of confusion about when 3k3y will be ready for your ps3model. 3k3y team have figured out how to use the device without KEYs, which means you can use the device on OFW, tested up to 4.46 firmware.

    ---

    There are 2 motherboard types

    - 3k3y Fat, for PATA based consoles (fat consoles with the really wide ribbon cable coming off the DVD drive)

    - 3k3y-S (3k3y Sata Slim) for All other units, including Fat consoles which have a Sata dvd drive.

    The Sata Fat consoles, and the 2000/2100 models have the Blu ray drive board INSIDE the Blu Ray drive. This means the 3k3y can sit in the middle and is solderless. The 2.5k, 3k, and 4k models all have the Blu Ray drive board inbuilt into the motherboard. The Blu Ray drive using just holds the motor, and laser. The laser cable goes directly to the motherboard. For this reason you will need to solder the adapter board onto the motherboard. For this reason the 3k3y team have made 1 x main board for Sata based models, and are making 3 different adapter boards for these models. The adapter boards are just attachments (daughter boards if you will).

    Details of the progress are below:

    3k3y Fat ( aka 3k3y PATA ) - In Stock, and available

    SOLDERLESS

    Works on models

    Ok so based on the information HERE, the one I was going to get is wrong - in fact its not even out yet??

    I have Slim CECH-3001B on 4.46

    So the below applies to me (soldier, ug) - this post isnt asking, its confirmation to those who still dont get it and have my model

    Here IS A question though.
    how small are those soldier points? lol im good, but i mean, im not a pro either.

    I have CECHA01 and am considering this but am wondering about other options.

    This sounds nice because I can stay on OFW and keep using PSN.....is this the only hard mod that doesn't require CFW? I don't know much about this stuff....

    So if you have a bluray drive for a computer can you rip PS3 games that way?

    Having to dissasemble my PS3 to rip games seems like a big hassle.

    What I don't get is, if 3k3y needs cfw in order to make a dump so it'll work, then what would be the point in getting it if you already have cfw? Unless this changed recently.:blink:

    Yes it changed, you don't need cfw to dump the keys anymore. Previously after dumping the keys you could go official with it though, I think that was the point.

    The lack of anyone being able to tell me anything tells me my 3KEY 3KS-R V1.2 is a useless piece of crap that I forked out my hard earned cash for. I updated to 4.55 before the news came out and before I got the chip.
    Well I mean you would they said you could in their statement on there site NOT HAPPY and the lack of progress to rectify the problem COBRA already has a fix like ages ago.

    As far as I knew, 3k3y was pretty much dead in the water when 4.55 hit. COBRA and E3 I believe came up with a workaround for the units that didn't work with at least being able to boot a swap disc.

    Their site hasn't been updated in several months, and the last thing anyone posted was a facebook post in may saying they haven't had any luck finding a work around and will try a boot swap soon. 3k3y has been pretty shitty in the past with their support.

    It should work okay in the 3K series as far as I know, only the 4k I believe had the big issues. However, both 3 and 4k require soldering to the board itself
