I have inherited an Asian PS3 Slim from a friend, did a factory reset. It is running 4.0 firmware.
As the title says, all I want to do is switch the X and O buttons, so that its using US/EU button config.
I understand that in order to do this, I have to jailbreak the PS3.
From my research & limited knowledge (I am a total newcomer to PS3 modding) I think..
- ..there are different types of jailbreak (?) - such as Rogero, CFW..
- ..if you are jailbroken using Rogero, then you can use the button swapper program
- ..another method is shown on the only Youtube video I could find about button swapping, in which an entry in the registry is edited by FTP (and is demonstrated at lightning fast speed) - I'm not allowed to post links yet, so search Youtube using "Changing the button layout of PS3" and you can see his method.
- ..regardless of all of this, you have to be running 3.55 firmware, so I would have to downgrade because I am on 4.0 stock firmware
As a newcomer, there is an overwhelming amount of information out there, its not necessarily crazy complicated for me to do these kind of things, but as a total newcomer it is a bit daunting because of the various FWs, methods..
I'm not really interested in modding my PS3 for reasons other than simply swapping these buttons. Then I want to unjailbreak and use PSN without fear of getting banned, or having to constantly upload modded FW..
Can anyone walk me through the most simple method of achieving the button swap?
I would really appreciate it
Sorry for jumping in with this on my 1st ever post, I probably could have done a bit more research..
Thanks for reading.
