So could someone just point me in a direction on how to do either of these? I know, I should search and stuff, but threads I read keep using foreign terms to me like OFW, I assume something Firmware is what it means, but...

Yeah. I also don't have a lot of knowledge on the PS3, because it's not mine, but I just need a link or something for directions, I don't need my hand held. Thanks in advance, and I'm sorry to piss off the people that are forced to read and comment on how we have search and yada-functions for a reason.

Is that the only way of softmodding? It looks like I have to buy the actual flasher, I just want a softmod on USB or something of the sort.

there is NO softmod if you are over 3.55 (out at this time)
you will NEED to OPEN the PS3 and do a HARDMOD of some kind


softmod=mostly software, with no need to open the system
hardmod=hardware and opening the system


there is a HEN, type JB being worked on for new FWs,
BUT IT WILL NOT LET YOU USE BACK-UPs, is just for running homebrew

I see a lot of videos on YT, saying you just need to install some kind of firmware, like PS3UPDAT.PUP, but I'm not sure if those methods are fake, because every download they offer has a survey.

Can I get a link for the site working on this HEN, type JB thing? I did a search and didn't really get anything, and I wanna see what all of it's capabilities are :) Thanks in advance.

E3 flasher I think. (Maybe not for 4.10).


Requires a ton of soldering though.

E3Flasher is solderless, it snugs right into the HDD slot.

Seriously? I wasn't ordering it because I thought it required that. :P

...Now where to get it.... :ninja:



The HEN firmware in't out yet IIRC, the dev still wanted to test it.
The HEN isn't even done yet, it probably won't be released for a few more months.

HEN's are HEN's - CFW is simply better and having a flasher mounted on the memory chip basically ensures that your PS3 is brick-safe no matter what. That, and an HDD dock is quite handy when you want to swap drives quickly.

Yeah, I think I'll just wait a while and see how everything plays out while I lurk. Thanks for all the help though (besides a couple) :)

please don't forget that if you have a CHECHA01 console or any other model that has NAND type ram E3 flasher will not work with it... which means you will have to use progskeet which is much harder, or that if your console came with a firmware higher than 3.55 you can't downgrade it to 3.55.

So I take it that these won't work?

So the E3 flasher, I have a slim PS3 (I got it shortly after the slims came out) that I had on 3.55 CFW for a bit but ended up upgrading my firmware because I wanted to play online and Sony's email scared me
