installing CFW help!
Hi .. im about to buy a PS3 , downgrade and jailbreak it. My question is if i downgrade to 3.55 and install latest 4.30 or whatever it is CFW
what to do when new CFW gets out and needs update.. Do i must pay for downgrade again to 3.55 in order to install it? Thanks in advance!
No, you'll be able to update from 4.30 cfw.. if a new one does come along. It's a one and done type thing, once your on 3.55 and install cfw that's it.. Your ps3 is jailbroken.. Its free to install homebrew, open source, modified firmwares.. All that.
You will not have to use a hardware flasher to downgrade your PS3 again once you are on 4.xx CFW. If you are about to buy a PS3 I suggest you get a used one that is already at 3.55 or below. If you buy a brand new PS3 you will not be able to downgrade it. A PS3 can only be downgraded to the firmware version that originally came with.
look for a CECH-2001A/B or a CECH-2101A/B
if you get a CECH-2501A/B you run a risk of not being able to downgrade if the date code is after 1A or manufacture date is after jan/feb/mar 2011.
if you get a CECH-3001A/B you will be SOL
if you get a super slim you will be SOL
Griff Thank you for clearing that up!!
They are actually 2 FAT consoles CECH-C04 and CECH-G04.. i got information about C04 and it can downgrade, but what about G04 ? Can it be done too?
All FAT consoles are downgradeable so yes both of them can be downgraded.
