    Im extremely new to this and never owned a PS3 nor know anything about hacking one.

    I was thinking of buying a PS3 slim with either a 160gb or 320gb HDD.

    Are these hackable? and how is this done?

    i heard only old games are actually playable on a hacked ps3. What can i actually do with it?

    Thanks for your replies!

    @[member='TehSkull']: I read that, but it still left me missing some relevant information.

    I didnt see it mentioning what kind of PS3s this works on, or if a downgrade is needed for newer consoles.

    I dont think this guide is actually all that helpful for people who barely know anything about ps3 modding.

    and your second link doesnt work.

    EDIT. That Tutorial is pretty outdated isnt it? It says Downgrading anything beyond 3.55 is only possible using the infectus chip.

    It never even mentions the E3 Flasher.

    Im sorry, its really not all that helpful to me.

    that chart shows u all the pertinent information. if ur system did not come with 3.55 or less as its base firmware, it can not be downgraded to that version. if it can, get the e3 flasher limited edition. it should come with an esata station for ur hdd.

    It might be slightly outdated but the basics still apply.
