I'm sorry guys, but I understood half of what you guys are talking about, just entered the ps3 scene..
this friend of mine did it, with no intention of ripping me off, and yes prob did a bad job at doing but got it for a great price. I'm really not sure about these options you're giving me, won't dare try them myself or even my friend.
I live in Italy and there's not much going on here so I really don't who i can rely to.. don't know who can reball it, what about the flash thing?
Thanks for your help.
I'm afraid to put in a game yet, what if i restore it to the official firmware? it went before. I'm so confused.
