Jailbroken 120gb slim HDD upgrade?
Jailbroken 120gb slim HDD upgrade? –
I have a 120gb slim on 3.41 of course and using the rockbox/iPod to jailbreak it. I was trying to see if I can still upgrade my ps3 to a 500gn hard drive? Will I have to update my firmware once I upgrade it or what? Or should I jus leave it the way it is? Or has there been any success on using a 500gb external with the FAT32 limitations.
Either works. You're better off putting a 500gb inside and using the 160 in an external case. Ya may want to read up on the act.dat thread if you have any DLC though. If not, run the backup utility in the system xmb, upgrade your hdd, then restore your backup.
I almost forgot, so when I back up the factory hard drive will my saved ps3 games be saved as well or will I have to back them up to the new harddrive using back up manager?
Anything you've downloaded, including save games, will be backed up with the backup process that's in the XMB. For extra measure, you may want to backup the games folder on the internal HDD using one of the FTP servers to your PC also. I'm not sure if that's the only folder that holds gamesaves though. So, you may just want to double check there aren't other files you need to backup from the HDD in other places too.
I bought a 120GB slim and put in a WD 500GB Scorpio Blue. Works like a champ.
You won't have to update but it'll ask you for the firmware again. Just stick on a USB and plug it in.
