CECHH01 - Version 3.56 Jailbreakable?
CECHH01 - Version 3.56 Jailbreakable? –
Ok guys, I am newbie here, but I want to know if it is possible to jailbreak this ps3. The problem with the ps3 is that the optical drive is broken. Two disks were pushed into the optical drive and now disk that are inserted will not stay in or spin. The optical drive is trashed. The ps3 still turns on and is usable, other than playing games from the optical drive/watching dvds/anything that uses the optical drive.
If anyone would be kindly enough to help let me know if I can salvage this ps3 I would greatly appreciate it. My main goal is to be able to run games without using the optical drive. I would buy the optical drive, but most are used and I don't want to gamble with buying a used drive that may not work for $80.
System Software Version 3.56

I have bigger 2.5 sata hdds available if needed. Thanks for any information guys. Also, was this system able to play older ps2 games?

Reason: Added more information
Unfortunately no. You need to downgrade with a hardware flasher to 3.55.
as it's a fat model you can downgrade using E3 flasher. You'll need to get one of course.

if you don't mind bd playback, I'd suggest wait a couple of weeks and get a cobra-ode or 3k3y. It'll be the cheapest for you ( around 100€ though ) and will allow you to again play all games, no BD as far as I know.
Thanks for the info MOD, could you please point me to a thread that you would recommend me reading so I can get this ps3 working for my nieces and nephews? I would just do a search and read random threads, but it would be great if you can point me to a thread that you know is filled with all the info I would need. That is if it doesn't require you going out of your way.

Minimum version is not an issue here because OP already said it's a fat PS3.

So the E3 Flasher is a device like the one in this video right?
I can buy the device, follow the instructions and it will allow me to play games without having to utilize cds it seems. Please correct me if I am wrong. Also, I already have an esata/sata hdd dock station/sd card, usb to sd card reader, usb flashdrives. I take it all I would need is the NOR cable, E3, metal housing (maybe), TF card reader. Will I need the "P3GO" usb flashdrive he uses in the video at the 15:00 mark in the video? Funny thing is while searching, most places that sell the device do not have that listed.
I really would not know. I have never used one. I suggest creating a new thread about it, then somebody more knowledgeable may respond. This thead is somewhat buried.
Good F***ing luck trying to get that piece of shit clip to work I have 2 E3 flashers and I bought 4 clips never got it to work. I would be willing to sale one of my Flashers with clip. I ended up buying a progskeet and it works just took me 4 hours to solder it
