anyway, i would like to jailbreak my old ps3 v3.30 but as i go to this tutorial, ive found out that i need to update it using system recovery. my problem with my old ps3 is i cannot use the front power button. im just my controller to power it on and off. is there any other way accessing the system recovery without using the power button?
You can download OFW 3.55 and update the 3.30 to 3.55 without using recovery, then you could flash KMEAW/Rogeros v3.7 from XMB with no real problem.
Or buy a used game disc that has 3.55 update on it (check the PS3 backup compatibility wiki to be sure which games have 3.55 on disc).
The only way to get into recovery without the buttons is with CONDOR updater, but ironically you need to install it on CFW... its a vicious circle.
