    ready to finally get a ps3 for kids , ive been a gamer since atari 2600 and the wii just isnt doing it for me. i have started reading and
    1- can i just go out and buy a new ps3 bundle at say walmart or does it have new firmware where the jailbreak wont work . do i have to go search at pawn shops or can i buy online somewhere.

    2- do i need to buy the official jailbreak for updates or will any device work and can you download updates online

    3 are they sending new updates w/ every new game to render the jailbreak useless or are there updates available (for the jailbreak to counter sonys updates

    4 most importantly, can i just download the game isos and convert to hard drive

    any help would be appreciated

    ps have an xbox360 but the connect is a huge disappointment so skipping that for the kids , i think they will like the move but i need to get on this before christmas thanks

    pss can this brick your ps3

    1. I bought mine at a pawn shop last week 80gb for $145. So it was about half off the original price. Buying from a pawn shop the ps3 is more likely to have a firmware installed on it that you can jailbreak.

    2. If you have a smartphone or ipod you can JB the ps3 with that.

    3. I know the newer games require you to be on 3.50 to play.

    4. If not transfering to internal Hd. You must split the files. The external has to be formatted to fat32 and any file over 4gb has to be split. (most games for ps3 are over 4gb.)

    Thanks for the info about jailbreaking with other smartphones (I have an Android). I had no idea, how great [​IMG].

    Even if it has 3.50, you can downgrade it to 3.41 I believe.

    You can't tell by looking from outside. You're looking for a ps3 with firmware update 3.41 installed. You cannot play gt5 at the moment(I'm not sure anymore. There's a rumored patch but I have not tried it.) and most newer games since they were with 3.50 SDK. Maybe in the future.

    It is real. You post that it's fake on every thread here! STOP!

    It's been proved by so many sites, including psx-scene, ps3hax, ps3-hacks, and more.

    You don't want to buy new games? [​IMG]
    The downgrade won't help you because at the moment you can't jailbreak on higher firmwares, so you'll have to buy the game.

    This is the only time I'm replying to you.
    This is not a ps community if you haven't noticed.

    1. The psjailbreak team started all this, so there is already established credibility.

    2. It has been confimed by many ps3 oriented sites.

    3. There have been noumerous videos showing the downgrade process from many sources.
    Like these:



    4. There have been leaked files:

    http://www.ps3news.com/PS3-Hacks/ps-jailbr...les-modded-pup/

    5. There is a project in development for free downgrades called psgrade based on the leaked files:

    http://psx-scene.com/forums/f6/wip-psgrade...114/#post598278

    Now it's your turn. Prove to me that it is fake.
