    If you can't even comprehend how Custom firmware works on a ps3 then a modded PS3 is not for you since there"s a lot to take in inf you're new in the scene. If i were you i would look at ps3hax or psx scene and figure out how everything works and then ask questions.

    Cobra ODE only for super slims and 4.78 cfw is for exploitable consoles pre 3.55 ofw base. Super slims are post 3.55 ofw and cannot use cfw.

    You can't put CFW onto a Super Slim; the model is just too new. (Thus if you try to flash it with a 3.55 firmware, it will brick.)

    Additionally, since 4.70ish you can only play games on ODE that received an update to install on the HDD.
    Also the process of getting it done requires soldering, a blu ray burner and rewritable blu ray discs 25 gb.
    Really fun.

    My advice:

    Trade your super slim with someone who has a phat or downgradable slim and downgrade/install cfw yourself (if you have the tools and knowledge to do so)

    Or

    Same as above but have someone do the downgrade/cfw install for you.

    Or

    Sell the super slim and put it towards a phat/slim with cfw already installed.

    The super slim is the worst design imo anyway

    The PS3hax scene status banner sums it up nicely....
