    My existential nightmare..
    so a friend of mine got a ps3 really cheap with 3 controllers and 5 games.
    its the slim model on fw 4.81
    he wants to install a cfw basically and run "backups"
    i'm not familiar at all with ps3 hacking so would anyone please tell me where to look into and where to start
    whats the safest easiest and less bricking way to hack his ps3
    i'm scared to follow youtube videos due to some of them being poorly made and misleading
    should i update it to the latest firmware or hack it and update it then afterwards
    oh and are pkgs better than the multiman backup launcher?

    As you write that it is a chec2504b, first you need to check if this ps3 is down-gradable

    Search for Minverchck, do the check and if it comes with anything higher then 3.56 ..... you can not do full blown CFW.

    If 3.56 or lower.... but -normally I won't recommend it- the youtube video by mr mario (How to Jailbreak Your PS3 on Firmware 4.84 or Lower!) is really very good. Watch it once completely to know the whole process.
