Well to give you some information I have never fooled around or tinkered with my ps3. My xbox 360 I modded and was able to play burned games with it by connecting it to SATA and such.
Now my goal is to do the same thing with my ps3. All I need is to play burned games or somehow transfer them from my computer.
Ive spent the past 5 hours on google/youtube/forums/fake sites
I can not get down to the point and there are so many answers to so many questions and all of them are different. I can never get a solid answer or know what to believe / think.
I have firmware 4.31 i guess this is bad from what I have seen and read.
What do I need to do to play games that I have downloaded / burned?
Do I need to downgrade? Do I need to buy a flasher? Do I need to tinker with the inside of the ps3?
Here is some more information on my system:
It is a CECH-3001B
Its one of the first versions I know it wasnt too long after release that I purchased it, its not a slim or anything fancy.
I know about how angry people get at those who cant google or research anything themselves, but I did that and was successful on my own with my xbox 360. This ps3 ordeal is different so many fakes and surveys **** that I can not find correct and accurate answers! I would appreciate any feed back and hopefully you all respect this thread and others can also receive information from reading feedback and replies! Thanks and I am not just some leecher I hope to learn a lot and eventually get on the other side so I can help other as well! Appreciate any replies!
It sucks you took all that time to research, and to type out that very detailed post.
Just for me to answer in a few words. 3000 series can not be jailbroken.
