Format ps3 hd –
how do i fully format my ps3 hd? Will this absolutely get rid of all info that my ps3 has been jail broken once updated to 3.5?
If you look under Settings, there should be a "Restore to factory settings" option or something like that, and that should do clean up your PS3. I'm not sure if that'll get rid of all traces but in any case, do the following:
Get rid of installed apps: Go under Game and manually delete the .pkgs
Delete any files/folders you added to the PS3 through backup manager/ftp etc by using FTP.
Hopefully that should clean it up completely if the "restore to factory defaults" doesn't do it.
put it in a pc and format, then put back into your ps3
Alright just went to my PS3 before and checked. The 'Restore to Factory Settings' is under System Settings. Also there's an option to use the 'Format Utility'. This wipes your HDD completely... Hopefully those should work
Is any of the jailbreak stored in flash? And what's diff between restore factory settings n format?
the jailbreak is code ran off the usb stick it doesn't remain anywhere but the usb stick

IF I want to start over fresh and free up as much space as I can on my PS3. Still want to be hacked of course. Do I run the "restore to factory settings" option and the firmware will still be in tact so all I will need to do is create a user basically.
Can I use my old user name?
