    Hello there folks

    I read the softmod sticky thread but i still need few answers.

    1. I have 240gb Slim PS3,firmware 4.11(i think,i know its 4.xx)
    So,is there a way to hack it? games are pretty expensive and im not able to buy them.

    2. Will i be able to go to PSN and play online games like Uncharted 3?

    3. Will i still be able to use Disk games?

    I hacked psp with pro b10 hack and it was easy so i thought theres something similar but...

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Only if your PS3 is downgradable to 3.55, with the only way to downgrade is by opening the PS3 and using a downgrader like the E3 Flasher
    2. Some say no, some say yes. I have no clue.
    3. Of course

    If you look in the FAQ section you'll find a thread by me that will let you check the lowest firmware your PS3 can go to, run that and if it's above 3.55 you can't hack it and if it's below google the E3 Flasher and look for tutorials. The flasher itself is around...I wanna say $100 but I'm not 100% sure.

    1. Answer above me
    2.No, PSN is locked to 4.0+, while the CFW is 3.55. I've heard that there are spoofers, but they are very hard to set up and you can easily get banned. Also newer games wont work(as far as I'm aware) but there's a fix for Uncharted.
    3.Yes, but only old games for FW 3.55-
