    to Jailbreak a PS3 you need a PS3 with 3.55 FW or lower. You cannot play online if you're PS3 is Jailbroken.

    so the model number doesn't matter? but I saw some people saying that even 4.10 can be jailbroken. Those might be fake so I just want to clarify it

    I don't want to make a new thread, so is there any good guide for jailbreaking a PS3 and do I need to have to get something to jailbreak it or is it free?

    all depends on what fw your on now. you need to search for 3.55 cfw. there's a lot of guides in here. if your on 3.55 or below you can jb easy, if not you can wait till the cows come home for 4.11+ cfw or buy a flasher to downgrade.

    3.55 is the magic number
