    demonstration mode = the mode the system should be set to when they are set-up as in store demo units

    What model of PS3 is it? If it's on 4.55 you pretty much can't do anything with it without a flasher. (and that's only if it's a 2501 and lower) ODE is currently blocked in 4.60.

    I think its 2001, its slim with 120gb, So it'll be an even bad idea if I upgraded to 4.60 if I want to hack it?

    The only way to install CFW on it is to be on 3.55 OFW or lower. If you're on anything 3.56+ you will need to use an E3 flasher/Progskeet to downgrade the firmware.

    If it's truly a 2001, it's always hackable as in you can flash the firmware down to 3.55 with hardware mods. To install the CFW though, the system has to be on 3.55 or lower.

    Best tutorial I've found is:
    http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=33989

    BTW, it requires opening the PS3. Is not a soft-mod. Not for the faint of heart or if you don't undestand what you're doing. You can brick your system if done incorrectly.

    If you're not comfortable buying the equipment or doing it yourself, check your local craigslist/ebay.

    It's the ONLY way if you're on any FW above 3.55.
