    I don't know if that's the right place to ask this but I've been thinking to get a PS3 and they are a bunch of things I still don't understand even after searching the internet.
    I plan to install rebug and I want to be able to load backups (if possible)
    -What model is recommended ? I've heard the fat model is not because of overheating and ylod for example. Is the super slim a good option ?
    -Can you load game from and external HDD ? Ps2 games ? PS1 games ? PS3 games ? PSN games ?
    -Can you load iso directly or the backups have to be in special format ?
    -Is it possible to run all ps2 games perfectly or some games don't run well ?

    You don't want to get a phat cause of the points you mentioned

    You don't want to get a super slim cause you won't be able to install CFW on it.

    So get a slim. The versions working are stated in the list. Hang on a sec I'll post it in a minute

    I have a 80Gb phat and it overheats but I never had a YLOD on it, but it has been like 2 years since the last time I used it. I was thinking on getting a PS3 with CFW installed or with a FW -=3.55, and I had a couple of questions that didn't get answered or not properly answered back then, but I will try to answer some of yours:


    I plan to install rebug and I want to be able to load backups (if possible)
    You need a -=3.55FW PS3.

    -What model is recommended ? I've heard the fat model is not because of overheating and ylod for example. Is the super slim a good option ?
    As far as I know, all phats that are on -= 3.55 CAN be modded or even downgraded with E3 Flasher, but the super slim and PS3 that came with a FW 3.60 can not be downgraded nor can have a CFW.

    -Can you load game from and external HDD ? Ps2 games ? PS1 games ? PS3 games ? PSN games ?
    Yes, you can load PS3 games, PS1 games and probably PSN games because they're designed for PS3. But the PS2 games if you don't have a PS3 60Gb I think you can not play them. (This is a question I had back then and I'm not sure).

    -Can you load iso directly or the backups have to be in special format ?
    If I'm not wrong they need to be installed like the original ones you get on PSN.

    -Is it possible to run all ps2 games perfectly or some games don't run well ?
    This is another question I had about the PS2 game compatibility with a PS3 with CFW.

    Maybe I'm wrong or newer things happened. I'm not sure.

    If anybody can correct me or answer the PS2 questions, please, do!

    I can answer your question.

    My SLIM PS3 was 3.41 then I used Rebug to jailbreak it and you can use 3.55 if you have it but none above 3.55 will work at all. After Rebug jailbreal then install WebMod, and WebMan is a must.

    1: Slim is highly recommend and best console.. Again you must have 3.41 or 3.55 to do that before you can install Rebug the latest version.
    2: Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.
    3. Yes, you can load ISO through webMod and Cobra enable in Rebug first.
    4. No, not all PS2 games run perfectly fine, I would say MOST games. Again, you need Cobra enable in Rebug to do that and you will need WebMod as well.

    Well, I can only thank you all for your informatives answer. :bow:. And I mean seriously thank for the help:)
    From what I understand, is it the good way, then, to just search on ebay for PS3 slim 3.55 ?

    Yes. They are quite cheap to be honest.

    Thank again
    And one last question that I previously forgot, Can you use a USB hid controller (Logitech f310) to hack and to play all the games or only some ? Do I need to buy a real PS3 controller ?

    I'm not sure about that one, but knowing that CFW can do awesome things, I wouldn't see why it wouldn't be possible. Anyways, most PS3 buyed on ebay comes with a controller. I'm looking at a 60GB 3.55 PS3 for 150€ with an original controller at the moment, so that's te average price. Between 120-150€ for a 3.55 (even slims with 120-360Gb).

    You are welcome. (De nada). Before you buy a PS3 SLIM 3.41 or 3.55 at the Ebay. Ask the Seller to check it for you and make sure they must be a 100% sellers. I am a buyer and a seller since 1999. :)

    I hope I have the right to up this thread.
    Because I have one another question.
    I heard that fat 32 doesn't support files bigger than 4 gb.
    Is the PS3 internal hdd in fat 32 ?
    So is it possible , on the internal hdd, to put files with size superior than 4gb (isos for example) and play them ?
    Thank in advance:yay:
