Jailbreaking A Non-Updated PS3
Jailbreaking A Non-Updated PS3 –
I've been keeping up with the the scene for a while, but I'm just wondering if it's possible to update to the latest jailbroken firmware (3.55 I think) from an older firmware, say if you bought a brand new PS3.
Yeah, just install the 3.55 ofw first then install the 3.55 cfw
Right, thanks. Now as I understand, firmware 3.56 and up cannot be restored to their factory settings, which would set the firmware to it's original version, thus making it jailbreakable, right?
Also another question, which version supports backup games? I'm pretty sure Geohot's doesn't, and I just read something about the playback of LA Noire through Kmeaw's version so I'm guessing that one does, correct?
As you can probably infer, I have a version above 3.55 (3.61) and I'm looking to downgrade somehow, then jailbreak for the use of backup games and other material. I know you can't just downgrade from 3.61 to 3.55, but if you can just restore the Playstation to its firmware, that's pretty much the same thing, right?

not a fan of reading the stickies are you? once you go past 3.55 you are stuck there. There is nothing you can do other than buy a ps3.
Now everybody point and laugh at the guy who cant read.
a few threads above yours is this one, sums up everything nicely. you only way is but a different ps3 thats on 3.55 or less.
It's almost as if as soon as one post regarding 3.56> is rubbished and removed, someone else, in one guise or another, starts again, though phrasing it slightly different at the outset, I think some are beginning to believe its deliberate.

NOW use the search function next time! There's a huge sticky that says exactly what I just said in big letters.
Yay! Thanks for all the great flaming guys, much appreciated. Chris_79 you were actually the only helpful one. I actually did read the stickies, but it's alright flaming is expected for noob questions, great forum support guys.
xPreatorianx, this is a forum where people communicate and help one another, not flame and slang words like an idiot. I knew that you can't jailbreak 3.56+, what I was asking is if you can restore your Playstation to achieve it's original firmware version, not downgrade directly from 3.56+ to a lower version, as I plainly stated. Next time how about asking if I've read the stickies, and if not kindly directing me to them instead of being a belligerent jackass assuming that I haven't. How about supporting the community in which you leech, even if you have to answer simple questions for noobs. Just because you've answered or seen so many posts like this before doesn't mean you need to rage.
Also, thanks for skipping my other question just because you wanted to flame me, as it is still unanswered I will ask it once more.
Which version supports backup games? I'm pretty sure Geohot's doesn't, and I just read something about the playback of LA Noire through Kmeaw's version so I'm guessing that one does, correct?
Listen to yourself. You answered your question already. Even though restoring settings doesn't put the ps3 at it's original firmware, if it did, called "downgrading." you just said yourself you know you can't at 3.56 and above, so why are you asking that? For your second question: kmeaw or rebut in my opinion even though it's pointless at 3.56 and up. Use the search function next time buddy. It's also stickied. All of your questions are in stickies. That's why you got flamed. What you call flame, we call being tired of answering the same questions over and over to people that didn't search, nor do they read the stickies.
