    You should be able to go straight to latest rebug if you install it via recovery mode, at least I could.

    I got the impression that someone wanted the kudos of creating a patched cfw, instead of telling people they just need to hold a button while turning the ps3 on.

    It depends.
    (CFW compatible) With an HW Flasher (like E3) you can downgrade back to 3.55 and install a CFW.
    (HAN compatible) No luck.

    Hi all, It has been a while since i last visited, but i was wondering if there has been any progress made on hacking a system that is beyond the 3.55 update?

    Look up PS3Xploit and check the compatibility list. I will warn you though that if you have a super slim then you're out of luck

    So my PS3 is a 3000B, that can only go down to 3.72 (according to MinVerCheck). I guess one day someone will figure it out, but for now I'm stuck with an un-hackable PS3. The funny thing is the only thing I want to do to it is change the controller layout from Japanese to North American. It seems to work fine with most of my games but then there's a few games/programs like Netflix that really get weird, where it says "press X to start the video" but then exits. And then O will play the video.

    I prefer the CECH-250x, it's a permanent CFW and can do everything. You have to be careful as a small number of them might not support CFW.

    How is the frame rate for ps2 emulated games? (about 30 fps?) Also can you emulate psp games? I'm sorry if it was already answered earlier but i'm too lazy to read through old comments.

    I've never tried psp on the ps3, but supposedly it works.

    ps2 games are hit and miss, some work, some don't and some are unplayably slow. I use a ps2 slim for running ps2 games.

    hmm i only ask because there are some Japanese games with fan translations i would like to play (ps2/psp) and was wondering if a modded ps3 was a good solution.

    Good news is these are now semi-hackable. You can now install 4.84 hybrid firmware which will allow you to install HEN, which then allows multiman and downloadable games.

    CECHA0x is what I prefer. It has the best reverse compatibility and plays the rest of the games perfectly as well. Only problem is the price tag.

    I had a 2502-A cfw'd, on firmware 4.82.
    IDK what you guys are on, its hackable. Just get a PS3UPDAT.PUP for 4.82, do the PS3XPLOIT hack

    Is a CECH-2000A model good for hacking? There's one I'm considering buying but idk... I've never modded a PS3 before. Also is there any difference in terms of performance between a CECH-2000A and 25XX or higher model?

    Yes, it's fine. Worst case is just using ps3xploit to patch your current firmware. As long as you're not on like the latest OFW which I believe patched out the exploit, then it shouldn't be a problem. Last I checked, the last (vulnerable) OFW for said exploit was 4.84, but I believe there was a 4.85 released not long after.

    Can you downgrade the firmware if it is on the latest OFW? I was reading something about that awhile ago. Also do you know if older models of PS3 Slim (Such as 20XX vs 25XX) have worse performance in games or not? Not sure if those numbers indicate hardware differences or not.

    If you're at least able to run the ps3xploit, then technically, what you do with that is patch your OFW to be able to then install CFW of the same or newer version straight from there. Once on CFW, there is downgrading capability. Just not as much reason to nowadays.

    What about CECH-2001B? Can it be modded if it's on the latest OFW? I don't really care about HFW/HAN vs true Jailbreak as long as I can load my game backups on it and play strictly from the HDD. I know next to nothing about PS3 modding currently and I'm in the market to buy one. I'll most likely get one from eBay, and most of the listings don't specify the firmware version. Haven't had much luck with sellers responding back either.

    4.83 patched the exploit, then upgraded to 4.84 which is current.

    If you are on OFW 4.84 you can update to HFW 4.84 via recovery mode (this removes the patch to make PS3 unhackable). Once done, use ps3xploit to do a proper hack, and upgrade to CFW 4.84.

    Short answer: Yes.

    I sell them all the time. I don’t have any right now, but I have one I’m just waiting on controllers for. You can find my store here

    Hello I have a PS3 slim CECH2504A on 4.86, is there a website like wii.guide for the ps3 softmod/jailbreak? It's a lot more complicated than the wii and there is so much stuff everywhere I don't know where to begin to get the most up to date info.
