Need Help...Total Newbie! –
I just got my PS3 today (I won it through an auction through eBay). However, I don't even know where to start.
The firmware it is running under is 3.21. I would like to upgrade it to an OFW 3.55 which I found over here: Ps3OsRels - EurAsiaWiki. I am downloading the hopefully OFW and not the one with the inc in it. If I wanted to jailbreak my PS3, do I need both the OFW and CFW? Don't roll your eyes at me, I told you I am a complete newbie.
So far, am I doing the right thing? I need to get this baby to a 3.55 before putting cfw right? What is the need for CFW? Also I am seeing a lot of versions to multiMan. What is the latest version? I want to be able to load up ps1, ps2 and ps3 games from my hard disc.
Any help you can provide me would be highly appreciative.
Yes first update to 3.55 OFW then install Kmeaw CFW. CFW is needed to play backup games and run homebrew apps and games, scene apps that sony hasn't approved.
To play ps1 and ps2 games from harddrive at the moment you need the Cobra dongle, without that dongle you are still able to run ps1 backups from disk but no option for ps2 backups yet, you need a backwards compatible console to play ps2 games although you can play them with a new method on non-BC models but the compatibility is pretty crappy right now.
The latest version of Multiman is 4.04.03 and you can get it here: Download multiMAN ver 04.04.03 BASE CEX DEX (20120722).rar from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
PS3 SuperSlim 120gb Firmware: 4.31 OFW / PS3 Slim 1Tb Firmware: Rebug 4.30.2
Hi Shaitan. Thank you so much for your help. I forgot to tell you that it is backwards compatible and its 20gb with 4 usb ports. So I am able to play most of the PS2 games on it without any problems right? Thank you for the link for MultiMAN. With all the links available at the moment, I was afraid of picking the wrong one.
Thank you again.
