    go to Settings -> System Settings -> System Information

    That's where it's at.

    And when you update to 3.41 you have to do it via a USB stick not online else you wont be "fully jailbreakeable".

    Except that there's no way to downgrade the firmware, and there's no way to hack anything past 3.41...

    So if you upgrade you're stuck, no matter what board you buy.

    Somewhere in the middle
    You guys really need to read the stickies in the appropriate sections, and NOT bump a nearly 2 year old thread.

    A PS3 jailbreak is simply not possible on any firmware beyond 3.55 at this point; Sony patched things up, and hackers haven't found any ways around it yet. So you're stuck unless you buy a new PS3 with firmare 3.55 or below.
