A quick question: Are DEMO models available for sale cheaper than the original PS3 ?
It depends, sometimes they are, sometimes they aren't- really depends on the seller, and if they know that the box can be converted or not.
Ok, If anyone would be kind enough to point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated. I have read this guide, but I'm not so sure about the up/down grading part of it especially when it relates to breaking blu-ray play back.
I have 2 kiosk units. One is on demo firmware 2.30 and the other on 2.50. I also have a ti-84+ silver and an iphone (original). I'm thinking it would probably be easier with my calculator.
I want to simply switch these to retail. Upping the firmware isn't important to me other than maybe on one of them to make sure that I can sign into psn and play online with it before selling it, unless someone can promise me that it would do that so that I can make that same promise to whoever I sell it to. (I have no interest in playing online but others usually do).
Thanks again in advance.
-> make sure psgrade exists for your TI device, if theres no .hex out there that works, you'll need a teensy or other compatible boards.
-> do not perform 3.55 demo firmware upgrade or you can kiss your demo console goodbye
-> jump from 2.30 or 2.50 to the modified 3.41 pup should be fine, you will end up with 3.41 retail with no BD playback problems.
-> from there, updating to 3.55 retail will enable PSN definitely.
What is the 'modified' 3.41 pup? Isn't the 'modified' part what helps cause the blu-ray issues?
Thanks again, It's good to have those steps outlined like that clearly.
Couldn't I just use psgrade to go to 3.15 official pup?
I'm not 100% sure, but i think that there is only a BD problem when you downgrade from 3.50 to 3.41.
I'd really like to be able to set it to 3.15 retail, because it is pre-otherOS removal, and has jail break payloads if I'm not mistaken. Any way to do it?
if you are a risktaker, you can test it for us
anyway, lets say you took the normal root in the guide, jump to 3.41 retail, if you decide to downgrade to 3.15, it SHOULD NOT break BD playback. There's plenty of guides on how to downgrade from 3.xx to 3.xx so i'll let that to you.
remember the basics - 3.50 -> to anything lower has a chance to break BD.
no idea why you would bother with 3.15 though, linux OS is definitely coming for 3.41 for phat and slims as outlined by team fail0verflow.

I wanted it in there just in case my buyer wanted it. Turns out he didn't. I followed the guide on page 1 so now they are both on 3.41 (modified?). He has the one I sold him, but I have mine. I didn't test blu-ray because I don't have any movies, but the netflix disc seems to work. now I just need to resolder on the optical audio jack on mine. I only paid $100 each for them
