    My old PS3 with CFW is overheating, but my roommate has an extra PS3 he might part with.

    Is there any way to hack the new one using the old one? Is it as simple as inserting the hard drive, or do I have to jailbreak it all over again?

    Damn. Might as well just buy a PS4 and hack that instead.

    Yep, a exploit is apparently going to be released soon so a new PS4 below 4.06 will be good.

    Exploits? Yeah, but I think the k-exploit is the one that is about to be released. Don't take my word for it all I know is that people have the k-exploit on 4.05 and below.

    I'm gonna wait and see, then. I can't guarantee that I can get a console with 1.76 or lower.

    Well, perhaps you could take a look inside? Prolly needs a clean and regoop.

    Ever thought of replacing the thermal paste and thermal pads on the RSX and CPU? You can also clean out some dust and if you're adventurous drill a few holes in the case at certain locations in an attempt to improve airflow. You could also upgrade the fans and even if you haven't you can use webman to raise the fanspeed to prevent an overheat. What I'm getting at is that it's not the end of the world. You can still squeeze some life outta that pstriple yet.

    It was clean. Racer0018 did a pretty good job. He probably had checked the paste, too.

    Turned out it was the Cobra CFW I was using. Does not like Cobra for some reason. Works fine on Ferrox 4.81 though.
