A few questions. –
Ok, I just stumbled upon the news of "jailbreaking" a PS3. I, fortunetly, have a PS3 quitely collecting dust on my shelf, which is at firmware 3.42, or whatever the correct version needed to do the jailbreak.
So I have a few questions I want to ask.
(1). I've seen videos and tutorials on how to do a jailbreak, but what exactly does it do? Will I be able to download PS3 games off the internet, put them on an external hardrive and play them?
(2). The USBAMAZE mod chip. Would anybody reccomend it? It's cheap, and thats good for me because if I had money I would just buy the original game.
(3). Is there a way to just format a usb flashdrive into a "jailbreak" so I don't have to spend any damn money?
I know I sound cheap, and I'm not, I'm just broke. I wouldn't even bother with piracy if I had money. Modifying shit is a lot more complicated than slamming down 60 bucks at your local walmart and walking home with a game to pop it straight in your system, and trust me, I would do it. I would so totally do it.
Oh and where I'm getting this jailbreak device I mentioned:
Is that place reputable?
2. No. Get a x3max, Teensy, Maximus/Minimus AVR, etc. Better money spent, and you don't have to wait on someone to come out with an update, you can compile your own instead.
4. Like I said, don't buy that. Spend $30 and get what you pay for.
BTW: you need to be on firmware 3.41. I'd double check if I were you.
To add to the previous comments,
1) 'Jailbreaking' your PS3 just gives you more access to the PS3 than Sony wants you to have, so you can do things like run games off hard drives for example. Regarding downloading games, there are numerous sites out there which let you do so - just make sure you have plenty of quota to sustain it
2) As chesh mentioned, try going with more well-known brands, or alternatives that let you use any hex files. This means that you can just grab the latest files from forums like these, and be up-to-date. Otherwise, if you're locked into using a particular company's updates, they won't always be fully up-to-date and you never know, they might stop offering support altogether.
3) Nope. Regular USB drives and these jailbreaking devices have different hardware in them so even though they look similar, they're very different in what they do.
As for ***********.com, I've been told by friends that it's a pretty reliable website (at least from their experiences)
***********.com is extremely reliable website, not the issue here though. Don't buy any knockoff from China, because just as Sylpher said in point 2, you'll get something that is cloned and not updatable, it could break at an time (they're extremely cheaply made), and you may not get support in the future.
