    [Answered] Jailbreak Slim vs Fat?

    Sponsored Links
    I have 2 PS3 (1 slim and 1 fat) and I'm thinking about jailbreaking one of them.

    Any advice on which one of the 2 the jailbreak and the reason for picking that one over the other?
    Best Answer - Posted by shabutie78:

    it really comes down to this; if you had to give up either running homebrew or online gaming, which would you rather lose? the one that is most important to you should be the slim, since they've never gotten the YLOD.

    other than that, they really are the same exact thing except, as you should know, on the slim there is no main power switch, and so you have to pull the plug out from your ps3 slim to jailbreak, making it a tiny bit more complicated.

    but it's really not something i'd consider to even be a 'con.'

    I'd rather say, use your fat for homebrew, because if it comes to it, you can downgrade the firmware and use other os again.

    or if you play more backed up games then id say use the fat one, better cooling in my oponion

    its not 100% sure that the fat is ps1/ps2 compatible. if someone will ever make a ps2 emulator for the noncompatible ps3 s, im sure that both fat and slim will be able to play them.
