[HELP] Understanding JailBreak OFW, CFW, Homebrew, and Multiman
[HELP] Understanding JailBreak OFW, CFW, Homebrew, and Multiman –
Hi!, New member here. I had a quick question.
I'm not your average noob guy but i am new to the ps3 scene. I've done a lot of computer repair ( not ps3 )
Ok, so here is my dilemma, I have a Cech-3001A , which by now from my research i know that, that model is unjailbrakeable at this time because it's a newer version and it's also un-downgradeable ( even with a e3flasher as the firmware that it came with is above the recommended 3.55 ) because of it's version and because jailreakers havn't figured out the hash key's to bypass the ps3 in order to jailbreak the system and configure a firmware to their likings.
My friend on the other hand has a Cech-2001A on firmware 4.46 which i know is an official (OFW) I am willing to trade my newer ps3 for his (He's a call of duty gamers and treats his ps3 like he bought it every morning lol)
He and i are ok with trading (he just wants to swap the hard-drives which isn't a problem) our ps3.
Ok so my question (what i don't understand yet) is I am able to jailbreak his 2001A ps3 because of the version and i am confident that i can do it. However, the purpose of me trying to jailbreak it is to download games from torrents sites and loading them on to the internal hard-drive (preferred or external, i have like 3)
1. I know i am able to jailbreak 4.46 (so far from my research but i could be wrong)
I don't Know
what apps would i need to run .Iso or pirated games.
What apps would i need to backup games from CD to HDD .Iso or just HDD Files
What is Homebrew? (I read that you need it to run pirated games)
is there an official site for jailbreaking firmware updates?
Essentially what im asking/saying is that i don't need to use an e3flasher to downgrade to 3.55 if i am able to jailbreak 4.46 and run pirated (which is my mine goal here)
of course for education purposes only
I don't know what apps i would need to install to run games.
can someone elaborate on this??
i did a lot of research but i got confused when people started talking about multiman and homebrew
from what i think so far from what i've read is that multiman can backup your games but idk what homebrew does.
Thank You for your help and i hope i didn't bore you to death.
I appreciate any help i can get
First of all coming on here and openly saying you want to download torrents of pirated games to play is a big no no. Regardless of whether or not everybody does it, you keep it under your hat.
Secondly, it amazes me that you think installing an e3 flasher then downgrading, then installing CFW will be the least of your troubles but that the relatively simple process of installing the latest Multiman to play your "backups" will be difficult.
As for an official site for CFW, you can't really get much more official than here.
yes u can downgrade model 2001a ( the best model ever lucky you ) how ever don't get ****y and try to use E3 flasher by your self if u mess up even by little u could brick your console just send it to
specialist ,, as far ps3 games doesn't come in ISO format it simply folders like BLES01532-[Prototype 2] and contain 2 files one is PS3_GAME and PS3_DISC it's ok if u find PS3_GAME file only ,, u need app that copy from the game disk to internal or external and run the games ?? MULTIMAN is your friend it does every thing ,, as far as CFW updates always come here to this site never download from suspicious site like youtube or any thing like it as there is no jailbreak beyond 3.55 OFW ,, 2001a is fortunately downgrade able buy E3 flasher here is links
latest multiman : http://store.brewology.com/get/homeb...id=24&fid=1095
ROGERO 4.46 : RB446DKIPF.PUP
remember once CFW is installed u can not sign in PSN if u do you will get BANNED eventually and check always for new CFW coz let's say sony release 4.48 OFW then new games will requre 4.48 of course u can just copy it internally and multiman will fix it for you but if your cousin or some one that have no idea try to insert and play from disk and the game require OFW higher than your current CFW it will update your ps3 and you will lose your CFW until you downgraded it again keep in mind when you downgrade your ps3 will format it self .. u can also use spoofer what spoofer does is that install something in your system that convince the ps3 that u have a higher firmware version example i have rogero 4.40 and in order to protect my ps3 from updating i install 4.46 spoofer so my system shows it's on 4.46 and that my PS from updating via disk .
install any cfw over 3.55 only via recovery menu ( Google how to access ps3 recovery menu ) and Multiman via package installer in your ps3 your games should put in folder called GAMES to show up in multiman keep in mind not all games work's when playing external and some require a ps3 disk inside so it can play over it
when installing or updating CFW remove any PS3 DISK form the PlayStation or u will update higher than 3.55
PM me if u have any question or did not understand any thing
