[Answered] PS3 hacking questions help?
Hello all. I recently obtained a PS3 from a friend. I wish to hack it. Problem is...
I have no idea whatsoever on where to begin. I don't know what a DEX/CEX is. I don't know which CFW is the best nor telling which is which. There's so many fake vids out there claiming to do "this and that" for my PS3. I can't seem to find a proper newb friendly guide. I haven't modded a Sony product since my PSP's years ago and I barely even remember how to do that.
What I seem to have figured out is that 3.55 is the best FW for CFW. Kinda like how 5.01 and 5.50 is for PSP, I think. I also ran that "MinverChk" (not sure if I spelled that right) to see my base firmware (1.90, it's a pretty old PS3). So now I think my next step is to downgrade my PS3 from 4.30 OFW to 3.55 OFW.
Then from there, I need to find a guide for softmodding (if there is one hopefully, hardmodding sucks) to a CFW. And then find one for backing up my games on a HDD and playing them from there and then probably another for updating those games and putting in their DLC's. WOW! Lots of stuff I got ahead of me I think.
Sooooooo yeah, if anyone can point me towards guides that fits all of these needs and whatever else you think will be handy, please help! Thanks for reading.
Gentle reminder, please don't hijack anybody's thread, if you wish to please go ahead and create your own and ask all your questions there we will be more than happy to assist you.
racer, buddy i think he's got an old phat PS3 CECHA01 not too sure, so he has a NAND chip inside, go with the progskeet.
