I don't really like videos for this type of things but this one seems ok, you should just add a link to a compatibility list depending on the PS3 model and refer to slim/ultra slim instead of "sliding top model", especially since some slim models are not hackable. You can also add a link to the PSX-Place forum for PS3XPloit and for HEN for users with incompatible PS3

I dusted off my PS3 and hooked it up yesterday to find that I'm on CFW 4.81. Can I follow this guide to update it to a newer release?

You don't need to follow the guide to update since you're already on CFW. Download Evilnat's CFW and install it the same way as you would install any update: put the downloaded CFW on a usb drive with the path
Code:
/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP

It will just work like that, nothing more to do

I was looking at this and it got me intrigued to update my PS3. It is already on CFW but the CFW is 4.5. Do I need to load another CFW inbetween evilnats version in your video or can i use that pup directly from 4.5? thanks for your help. havent played my ps3 in about 9 years and looking forward to seeing what updates they have for homebrew

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    My daughters boyfriend just got a 36" Sony CRT for free at the recycling center. Works perfectly fine. He uses it for retro consoles and watching anime.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I've never used my Switch outside of my home. I don't care much at all about portability. It's always docked.

    I'll need to get a small CRT eventually for older systems, preferably one of those with VCR

    You can play both Series X and PS5 on portable devices. Including on your steam deck.
