    So I have a PS3 Slim model 2004A on Rebug 4.80 right now, and it doesn't have the Epilepsy Warning message that shows up when it's turned on. I used to have a non-hackable PS3 Slim 3000 series model, and it has the message. I'm here to just ask: Which models have an Epilepsy Warning message and which models don't? What are the internal and external differences between Epilepsy Warning PS3s and non-Epilepsy Warning PS3s? Can non-Epilepsy Warning PS3s still be customized in a way that involves custom coldboot, custom XMB modifications, etc.? :unsure:

    I have a Brazilian/American SuperSlim model and an American CECHL Fat model and neither of them have epilepsy warnings.

    I have a 3.41 PS3 (still OFW) CECH2504B.

    I didn't know they added that message to PS3 too. I's so annoying to read it on PS4 at each boot, I wish there were an option to hide it :(
    same for the warning message each time you launch a PSVR title.

    I suspect it's EU ps3s that have these warnings.

    Sorry for bumping a old thread, but when I am on the latest Rebug I get no epilepsy warning. When I downgrade to 4.65 Rebug I get the warning.

    Anyways, both Ferrox 4.80 and Rebug 4.80 on my hacked PS3 don't have the message, while my previous unhackable 3000-series PS3 had the message. Why are you saying that the latest Rebug has no message but 4.65 has the message? I don't understand everything, just most of it.

    My OFW 4.55 3004A have it too.
    Maybe it's removed by rebug? i suspect it's done to increase boot time.

    My slim is a model CECH-2501A. I noticed on the latest Rebug 4.80.1 it doesn't have the message, but if I downgrade to 4.65 the message is back. Idk maybe it was. He said he was on Ferrox and it was gone too though.

    slim CECH-2002B, bought retail in NZ, hasn't been hacked since the days of the USB microcontroller boards. sitting on OFW 4.something, has had the epilepsy warning for as long as I can remember.
