    Hello, I'm new to the PS3 hacking community, and I just got a PS3 Slim (model CECH-3004B) yesterday, and it was on 4.46. Any CFW I tried to install with a USB just threw me up an error saying the data is corrupted, and I tried to update to 4.80 and install the Rebug 4.80.1 CFW, but it will still give me that error. Please is there a way to hack my PS3 on 4.80 with a USB without 4.7X or something? I really don't want to buy another PS3 :(

    Nope there isn't everything higher then 3.55 can't be modded. Well except you hard mod and downgrade your console with E3Flasher (isn't really worth it imo)

    You can install cfw on your model, but you need to downgrade your console to 3.55 first with an E3 Flasher.

    No, sorry.
    Use an E3 to downgrade your console.
    Nobody broke the keys of post-3.55 firmware yet.

    Also, don't rely on someone else to buy you shit... Go open your own bank account and make your own money

    I thought the 3k series can't be downgraded to 3.55.

    3k PS3s and 4k cannot install cfw, you can't even downgrade it to 3.55 since 3k has a revision in somekind of minver check (3.65 if i am right).
    The only thing you can do is using ODE (Optical Drive Emulator).

    You can't downgrade a superslim. Sell it and check google for downgradeble models. There's a whole list with downgradable models

    Still not downgradable since Min Fw version is 3.60 and you need 3.55

    Did you even read what i just said?
    The 3k and 4k are not downgradable, even some 2k5 model can't be downgraded.

    Illegal stuff :-)
    You probably can't open a bank account in your own name since you're under age

    Since you have a non-downgradable PS3, why not try making some money to buy a 2K or below PS3?

    I don't know, my parents would be mad if I tried that, especially my mother, she got really mad and traumatized me after I tried to explain about the idea of selling it :cry:

    Well, you don't need to sell the PS3... just make money via other means... (hint: bitcoin)

    nope, just buy legit games instead. maybe someone out there has a working exploit for superslim ps3, but I'm sure they're shitting their pants afraid of sony's lawyers :P

    In this case the OP can start lamenting then, because there isn't much to be done sadly.

    I was 12 when I e3 flashed my PS3 stop acting so worthless. I also paid for the E3 flasher.

    ;)
    Probably...
