[Answered] PS3 Jailbreak/Hacks questions help?
Is there any other way to perform a jailbreak or add hacks or other similar stuff? Do I absolutely need one of the said usb keys or can I perform this by hooking my PS3 directly to my computer via ethernet cable?
Really want to do this, but not sure on specifics. Kinda new to this. Just got my PS3. My system software is v 4.11. Any help would be much appreciated.
No. You first need to get a flasher like Progskeet to downgrade your 4.11 console to 3.55 and additional you need a USB JIG with Downgrade ability otherwise you cant successful downgrade your console. But if you have a 3K Model you will be most likely out of luck.
And you only can use a USB device cause the method used is stolen from Sony's service JIG and only work with USB device or you use some of the Open Source options like to use a psp or a calculator, smartphone and so on which has a usb port and the needed information can be send over that usb port.
