    Hi All,

    We have a ps3 which has firmware 3.15.
    I was thinking of getting this http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.44846 and was wondering if it would work ok?
    Does anyone know if it is upgradable?
    Can i still go online with it?

    Cheers

    If that is one of those JB-devices that use PSfreedom (Open source JB-software) then maybe. Since they released a new payload that let's you go online. If it does not use the open source then I have no idea but I am leaning towards no.

    And by going online I hope your not thinking of playing backed up games online? If you do then your friends and Sony sees you playing Backup Manager or something like that and that's not good.

    BTW, the current payload may or may not be blocked eventually so it's not something to expect to function forever.

    That's taken out of Rydian's FAQ. If Rydian recommends it, it's a safe bet that it's a good choice.

    Thanks for that.
    How does one programme it?
    Do i just put the latest payload on it and thats it or do i need something else?
    In what structure on my portable hard drive do i put the ps3 games?
    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers Shane

    Since I don't have one devboard I dunno how you do (I use an iPod).

    On the external you use this structure: x:/GAMEZ/BLESXXXX (or BLUS or wth japanese games use)

    You don't have to use BLES/BLUS you can name the folder after the game. But in the root of that folder you have to have 2 folders (PS3update and something else) and an .sfo file... I think...

    But if you rip a game the backup manager does this for you [​IMG] Games borrowed usually come with the correct folder structure.

    Shoptemp has the download link on the device page they compile the latest payloads when it gets out. just download and install.
    As for the structure is just depends the manager you are using. Read around Cyan is pretty specific in this thread thanks MAN ure awesome!
