Your answer does rise a few more questions though, if I may.
NOR and NANDS, I am not sure I know what these are, but if I have a PHAT PS3, with the serial in CECHKxx... So can I assume it is NOR ?
Your wiki says I'm 16Mb NOR.
That is correct.
I am not sure what it means, but it also says "NO" under the "Flash reader" column, hope it doesn't affect the ability to read the flasher I'm going to buy ?
It's a built in CARD flash storage reader. All you had to do was click on the words "Flash reader" on the wiki and you would have hit this page: http://www.ps3devwiki.com/wiki/MultiCardReader
The E3/Prosgkeet flasher, they look like things I actually need to fix on the PS3 Hardware, I thought there were devices that would be plugged in the USB...
Any chance I can jailbreak without opening the PS3 ?
Not a chance in hell
That FSM dongle thing you're talking about, that's a downloadable software isn't it ?
Nope its a hardware USB dongle that you'll need in addition to the E3 flasher kit.
Also about PSN, you're bringing bad news. When I heard about this, I quickly googled for solutions (although I haven't looked into it much), and it seems that there were some programms and stuff you could install after the Jailbreak to get PSN back, is that false ?
Having PSN relies on workarounds or leaked passphrases which allow us to connect to PSN/SEN. At the moment I believe PSN IS available, but it wont last long imho.
Basically for jailbreaking, if I understood correctly :
- I need to open the PS3, messing with the hardware YES
- Get a 60€+ flasher (E3, since I'm in NOR) YES
- Give up PSN and online multiplayer even with originals YEP
So it's choosing between 60€ starter fee, unlimited solo games and risk of breaking PS3... or paying 40+ per game.
Tough choice !
Thought it'd be as easy as jailbreaking an iPhone.
For me it was , but that was over a year ago when 3.55 was the dominant FW, nowadays sony has attempted to block this so many times, its virtually impossible to buy a PS3 that you can jailbreak without hardware!
Hope this helps?
