    I've looked around lots and people say that 'Some are viruses'
    and 'There is no such thing'

    I just want a solid answer:
    Can I jailbreak my PS3?
    If so How do I do this?


    I know this is really noobish but
    whatever.
    We are all noobs at one point.
    You ask noobish questions,
    and get educated.
    Then you aren't a noob anymore,
    and you can educate other noobs.;)

    A few infos about your PS3 would help (model and FW) ... something you should have noticed when you "looked around".

    Model number helps. But basically, if the MFGR date was anything after 2010 - answer is no.

    You can't, no. Unfortunately it's not an apple device.

    You could possibly mod it though if you post some actual info.

    All Fat PS3s can be hacked and you're gonna need a downgrader first to hack it.

    On the Kitchen Table Obviously
    You've been answered.
    Do not try to use a flasher yourself. You will have 95% chance of screwing up if you've never done anything remotely like it (for example, XBOX360 flashing)
    If you're lucky, someone local may offer a downgrade/flashing service.
    Most likely, you will have to go online, ship your PS3 to them, and get it back some time later at OFW 3.55.

    The easy way out is buy a 3.55 OFW PS3 off Ebay. It's all FATs and select SLIMs from 2010 and before. Get a Slim unless you want B/C. Just do it to save the trouble of a YLOD a year from purchase date (that's if you take care of it well)
    Also change the thermal paste if you know how to since it'll add years of life onto it.
