    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    If he's updated it past 3.55 there's no softmod possible (and he said he's been updating it since Christmas so that's out). He will have to open it up and use a downgrading kit to downgrade it to 3.55.

    I have no idea how to hardmod a ps3 so he'll have to wait for more replies. (or get to googlin') :P

    also if you bought it with a firmware already over 3.55 you can't downgrade it

    check this to see if you can downgrade

    if the pre-installed fw is OVER 3.55, it can NOT run 3.55

    that if the system is BRAND NEW
