• It may be hard to believe, but it is almost two years since PS Jailbreak was released, reversed, the PS3 free’d and then locked back up again, a lot has gone on since then, Sony scaring away “hackers” and many other events.

    The PS3 should be free as the Wii and Xbox 360, but the people that are truly capable of pwning the PS3 are either too scared or just cant be bothered with the drama associated with the PS3 Scene.

    It is of course 2012 and i see threads every day, asking how to jailbreak ones PS3, so i am creating this article in a hope to help those that need it, this
    is my fourh F.A.Q, for those of you wishing to read my previous ones, visit here.

    (Q) Why Would I Hack/Jailbreak My PS3 ?
    (A) Hacking your PS3, gives you so many new option’s, you will be able to use emulators, homebrew apps and game backups as well as being able to use Linux, after Sony removed the function in firmware 3.21.

    (Q) Is there a firmware my PS3 should be on ?
    (A) It seems the preferable firmwares are 3.15(For the real OtherOS), 3.41(The original “Jailbreak” firmware) and 3.55(the first CFW PS3), 3.55 is the favourite and most used.

    (Q) What Firmwares cannot be hacked yet ?
    (A) 3.56 to 4.21 are unhackable at the moment, perhaps it will remain that way, or perhaps we will see a break through in the future, only time will tell.

    (Q) But when i bought my PS3, the firmware was above 3.55/My family member updated my console when i was out :( , how can i have Homebrew ?
    (A) All hope isn’t lost, you can downgrade your consoles firmware with hardware, here is a list:

    • Infectus
    • Progskeet
    • Teensy 2.0++/NORway
    • PNM
    • Noraliser
    • PIC32MX
    • E3

    Visit here for more information:

    • PS3 Dev Wiki - Hardware Flashing.

     

    (Q) Which PS3 Consoles cannot be downgraded ?

    (A) Unfortunately there are some consoles that cannot at this stage be downgraded, these are certain models of CECH-25xx, 3K models and 4K models, for more info, check here:

    • Checking console capability of running 3.55

    (Q) Downgrading was a pain, i don’t want to go through that again, is there a way i can protect my PS3 from accidental upgrading ?
    (A) You can use Team Rebugs firmware spoofer, it spoofs the firmware, so that when someone attempts to update the PS3, via internet, the PS3 tells them they are already on the highest firmware, as an extra precaution, you should remove your consoles access to the internet, when you are not around, you can grab your spoofer, from the offical Rebug site here.

    (Q) What Firmwares are available for me to install
    (A) There are many different versions of MFW, but the most popular are:

    • Rogero
    • Rebug
    • Kmeaw

     

    (Q) How do i install CFW ?
    (A) If you aren’t already on 3.55, you will need to update to the official Sony firmware, then install a CFW via recovery, Pirate wrote a great guide, which you can read here:
    [Tutorial] How to play and install Backups with Kmeaw CFW+PSN without risk of brick or itskamel’s NOOB JAILBREAK GUIDE

    (Q) Ok so i have CFW installed, how do i run homebrew ?
    (A) You will see in the game section, you will see “Install Package Files”, you will be able to install all your homebrew and backup managers from there, just a note though, the PKG files that you are installing, need to be on the root of your FAT32 formatted thumbdrive/external HDD.

    (Q) Now that i have updated to 3.55 CFW, is there a list of working homebrew app’s/games ?
    (A) Here are a few links:

    (Q) How do i run backups ?
    (A) You will need a backup manager, it seems that only two are being used at the moment:

    • Rogero’s Rogero Manager
    • deank’s Cobra endorsed mmCM

    (Q) I have games that require 3.56 firmware and above, how do i play them ?
    (A) The only easy option available is a reDRM device called True Blue(TB), you can buy the piece of shit or one of its clones, we aren’t a sell-out site like TBCrunch, so we will not link to such devices, though if you have a TB Device, there are members like Adamsville on the forum who will help you, my stance as many others on this forum is:

    But as i said, Adamsville will help, if needed.

    (Q) There surely has to be a free method for playing backups ?
    (A) Up until recently, the diseased reDRM device was the only way, but recently a CEX>Dex conversion was leaked and that paved the way to running backups which require a higher firmware.

    (Q) How do i convert my PS3 from Cex>Dex ?
    (A) There are a few ways, though this is an extremely dangerous method for your PS3, if you do not know what you are doing, you will brick, check here for some help:

    (Q) How do i run backups on a Cex>Dex converted PS3 ?
    (A) There are different methods popping up, here is one:

    (Q) What are my storage options for backing up games ?

    (A.1) You can backups certain games to CD/DVD/BD disc’s, read here for more information.
    (A.2) You can install games on the PS3′s internal HDD or use an External USB HDD, which needs to be formatted to FAT32, you can also use a FAT32 USB Thumb Drive, note that with FAT32 you are limited to games with single files under 4GB, if you prefer all your games to be on the internal HDD, you can get up to 1TB 2.5? HDD, or you can use the Xecuter PS3 HDXT method and have your internal HDD on the outside of the machine, the benefit of this, is that you can use 3.5? Sata and IDE HDD’s as internal storage.

    Some more PS3 HDD Information submitted by eussNL(Thanks again)
    - maximum height is 9,5mm (many 2.5? drives above 640GB are too high too fit inside)
    - maximum PS3 filesystem is 1TB (512KB block size)
    - maximum FAT32 theoretical size is 8TB, practical limit on the PS3 is 2TB
    - 7200rpm can be used, as well as Flashdrives (although the 1/5th lower loadingtime of GTA5 can be considered too low to justify the higher pricetag of SATA Flashdrives.
    - SATAII-300 can be used, although it will work on SATA1-150 speed interface.
    - If using external 3.5? drives hooked up to the internal SATA, you’ll need an external powersupply (some drivebays include them).
    - If on low budget or you like DIY: use a normal extension (male to female) SATA cable (and make sure it doesn’t get loose) and recycle the case + powersupply of an external USB harddisk (without using the USB connection/conversion).
    - Don’t use RAID or SAN drives with (e)SATA interface, just a plain single drive with a bare SATA connector (many controllers don’t work without drivers/software).
    - Games can be hardcoded for BluRay speeds (9MB/s) so sticking a 85~220MB/s harddrive inside will not speedup everything/allways (but most do).
    - If you plan on exchanging the drive, download the full PUP of your FW you are using and put it on an USB Mass Storage Device formatted with FAT32 in PS3UPDATEPS3UPDAT.PUP and disconnect the LAN before re powering the PS3 (or you’ll bound to end up with the latest (3.55 now) unjailbreakable/undowngradable version).
    - Use a good fitting X screwdriver, the screws fitted to the HD<>tray are made of very soft aluminum.

    Here is a tutorial, by forum member Invi, on how to an External IDE HDD Case and use it as Internal Storage:

    An image of the Xecuter PS3 HDXT.

    Videos of different HDD expansion options.

    (Q) Now that i am on 3.55, can i install Linux ?
    (A) Follow this thread.

    (Q) Ok im fed up with using my thumb drive, is there a way to download apps directly to the PS3.
    (A) Yes,you will need to instal “Package Installer”, then you will be able to FTP the apps to the “packages” folder on your PS3, you can find more about that here.

    (Q) Ok so i have backed up a game, i want to save that game to my computer as an extra backup, or i want to mod the game, how do i transfer it from my PS3.
    (A) There are two methods, FTP, there are three of those at the moment:

    Alternatively you can use

    • Comgenies Awesome Filemanager

    or

    if you cant use FTP, or have an External HDD, Comgenies Filemanager is the best choice.

    (Q) I want to be able to create my own Homebrew, is it possible.

    (A.1) Yes, using the Open Source PS3 SDK, named PSL1GHT, you can create Homebrew, PSL1GHT was created by AerialX, read about it here.

    (A.2) You can use the Official Sony SDK, it is reported that this is better for creating homebrew, than the open source version.

    (Q) I backed up a few of my movies to .AVI and .MKV formats, but when i try and play them through Showtime, or stream them via PS3Media Server, i get a Cinavia warning, is there any way past this ?
    (A) You can install this app:

    • Disable Cinavia Installer (3.41 & 3.55)(By Team Rebug)

    (Q) Can play PS2/PS1 backups on my Jailbroken PS3 ?
    (A.1) You can use this method, it lets you use Swap Magic to load PS2 backups on your PS3, the only consoles allowed, are those that are Backwards Compatible, this option also works on a non Jailbroken PS3, even with firmware 3.70
    (A.2) You can use the Cobra USB dongle, to play PS1 or PS2 backups on your Jailbroken PS3, it is compatible with firmwares 3.41 and 3.55.
    (A.3) You can use this method to play PS1 backups on firmware 3.41 and 3.55.

    (Q) Can i use internet and play online with CFW/JB, what about PSN/SEN etc ?
    (A) Yes, browser with apps for 3.55 and lower works online except PSN/SEN, online gaming is possible only via X/BS/link/ai on PC, if game has LAN option:
    Playing online via XBSlink
    Thanks spok

    (Q) The PS3 boot up logo annoys me, can i change it ?
    (A) Indeed you can, you can change both the visual and audio, these logos are called ColdBoots, you can either:

     

    (Q) The PS3 seems to have went on an epic journey, where can i read more about it ?
    (A) You can check out www.ps3history.net

    (Q) If i need help that is not mentioned in this F.A.Q, what should i do ?
    (A) You could either ask the question in this article, or ask your question in the forums help section here.
    You can also check the PS3 Dev Wiki

      iOS jailbreaking is the process of removing the limitations imposed by Apple on devices running the iOS operating system through the use of hardware/software exploits — such devices include the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and second generation Apple TV. Jailbreaking allows iOS users to gain root access to the operating system, allowing them to download additional applications, extensions, and themes that are unavailable through the official Apple App Store. Jailbreaking is a form of privilege escalation, and the term has been applied to privilege escalation on other computer systems as well. The name refers to breaking the device out of its "jail",[1] which is a technical term used in Unix-style systems, for example in the term "FreeBSD jail". A jailbroken iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS can still use the App Store, iTunes, and other normal functions, such as making telephone calls.

      Unlike rooting an Android device, jailbreaking is necessary if the user intends to run software not authorized by Apple. Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, jailbreaking iPhones is legal in the United States, although Apple has announced that the practice "can violate the warranty".

      I'm seriously wondering if you're blind ,because i'm perfectly sure that you're stupid. However regarding the blindness part you may force your eyes to directly look into the top of this forum to a what so called ''Banner'' and see if there's an available jailbreak for the version 4.21 you just ruined your consul by following Youtube *******s.

      Before the advent of root keys and such, i created a F.A.Q thread, in order to aid those of you that found the whole Jailbreaking process a little difficult, that thread can be found here, it covered the process of how to Jailbreak and which devices to use.
      With the release of the PS3′s keys, we were introduced to CFW(Custom Firmware) for the PS3, thus making the the whole use of dongles, redundant, so i have revised my old F.A.Q for the CFW generation, those of you that read my old F.A.Q will be familiarized with half of it on this new one, as a lot of it still stands, so here it is:
      Q.) What firmwares can be modified/Jailbroken/hacked
      A.) Firmwares 3.41 and below, can be Jailbroken with a USB Jailbreak device, 3.41 and 3.55 has CFW(Custom Firmware.
      Q.) What Firmwares cannot be hacked yet.
      A.) 3.56 and 3.60 at the moment are un hackable as are any future firmwares.

      Actually 3.56 can be and Kak openly admit that I don't get why there hasn't been a CFW for it because many people where stuck with it.

      Sorry to be a dick, I am new to the scene here but I need to ask you some stupid questions. My PS3 comes with v3.66 and the serial is CECH 300XX. Can I downgrade the CFW or softmod it or jailbreak it. I want to see the FAQ that you said about the whole thing. Again I am sorry I'm kinda slow, where do I find it thanks.

      That's bull**** and don't follow it it'll brick your 3k series ps3 for sure There is no cfw above 3.55 to play back up games and you can only downgrade some models above 3.55 and you can't downgrade and jailbreak PS3 3000 series as of now ...

      Dear PS3 Gods, I come humble to you with some questions. I know that you are probably tired of noobs askind dumb, long-discussed matters, but please try to be kind (Santa will bring you a great gift for doing this). I had searched a lot, but either I am extremely dumb or there isn't clear information out there.
      1. I have a PS3 slim&lite 12GB 4.22 firmware, is it possible to jailbreak it at the moment (from what I have read, it seems not)?
      2. If yes, could you please help a brother with a link?

      I will be forever grateful for your help.

      Hey guys,

      I have a ps3 slim, so here is what happend i had 4.41 demonstration mode installed in the ps3 when i got it as a gift. so i tried removing the demonstration mode permanently by using a reverter that i came across online.

      when i used the reverter from the recovery mode the Ps3 said it will format all data and whether i wanted to continue, i moved forward and in the end all i got was a blue screen of death.

      Now when i start my ps3 its the blue screen, and when i use recovery mode it said to update the ps3 to a version 4.41 or above. i tried installing the 4.41 ofw and nothing it says corrupted data.

      Guys if anyone can help me out there please respond, i know i a noob and im sorry if im an annoyance to anybody in advance.
