the PS3, is CECH-3001B, on 4.21 firmware.

from what i can gather you need <3.55 for softmod, and <4.55 for modchips?

i can't afford those $100 ODE right now and there is DLC i want to download. is it even worth it to stay on the firmware?

Can't put CFW on 3K series anyway. ODE is the only option. Or sell it and find a 2501 or lower model.

how do you mean?. wouldn't ODE at least be able to play burnt backups?

also do you only need the "drive key" for ODE, so is it possible to get the drive key on 4.77?
You will need a bluray burner as well to play games. Its a pain in the ass. I think ode is now patched anyhow. Sell it and buy a console that can be downgraded and have cfw installed.

yeah you're totally right. its not worth the hassle. i'm too lazy to take it apart and solder. and there is the Blu-Ray burner problem.

its not like it used to be, they don't print games in rare limited quantities like the previous generations, no Japanese only games. no PS3 / 360 games are that expensive or hard to find. and isnt worth it for homebrew anymore when gaming PCs are affordable nowadays and indie games flood the market

I recomend selling your slim and buying a CFW ps3, running games off a HDD will save you money in the long run, if you buy a CECHA, CECHB or CECHE01 then you get ps2 support.
