[Answered] PS3 CPU Reball Question help?
so here my issue.. i have the old beast.. the best PS3 ever.. the CECHE-01.. backplay, 4 usbs, card reader.. biggest hard drive, best processor, all that jazz.. BUT.. i think i scratched the tracks on the cpu.. SO.. a friend of mine has a CECHA-01 that i want to rob teh cpus from and have them reballed onto mine CECHE-01.. ive already looked into it and they both use the same precessor.. my question here is..
Do the CPUs control the backwards compatibility of a console?
because, of the 5 PS3's i own.. my original is the ONLY one that has it. which is the one i need the CPUs replaced on.. so you can understand why i'm going through the hassle.. and i'm not trying to be rude here.. but i don't want to hear anything about "oh with all that work you could buy a new slim" PLEASE... i need your help.. thank you in advance to all who can.
There are other problems. The gpu will work but the CPU is married to your ps3. So can change that. And his is married to his ps3.
