New guy needs some help –
Hey guys. So this will be my first jailbreak experience. I have a 320gb slim running 4.21 and I want to jailbreak it.
First: Is this possible with the update I have on it?
Second: If it is possible, what are some steps and resources (websites, programs, etc...) that I would be able to use.
Lastly: Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance everyone!
you need a hardware flasher like progskeet or E3 flasher. BUT you can only do it if your base firmware version is 3.55 or below. I believe the 320 gig slims are not currently hackable. Google PS3 + "base firmware" + model number. It should pull up a list for you to check
looks like i can not downgrade yet. any idea when that capability would be released? thanks for your response. greatly appreciated.
I seriously doubt it will be any time in the near future. Maybe never. The only thing I could suggest if I was in your shoes would be to check local pawn shops for a PS3 still on 3.55 or below. You can get them at a fair price because they don't know what they have. They'll let you check the system version before you buy it. You could keep your current one for online play and the second one for homebrew/backups
i will look into that. two final quick questions... what is the "newest" software version i need to have in order to downgrade? and my console was not bought with 4.21 (bought 9-12 months ago) theoretically speaking, if i were to do a factory reset, would it bring me back to the earlier software version?
you can downgrade from 4.21 but only if the ps3 was shipped with 3.55 or below thats why you were told to google ps3+"base firmware"+model number. and no you cannot do system restore to downgrade it would stay on the 4.21 fw as bahumatlord says your best option is to look for a 3.55 system ebay has them all the time search ps3 3.55 some of them are pricey but there are a lot on there that are reasonably priced.
"you can downgrade from 4.21 but only if the ps3 was shipped with 3.55 or below thats why you were told to google ps3+"base firmware"+model number" gotcha gotcha I understand now. safe to say without looking it up mine will not work. my main purpose of jailbreaking is to play PS2 games on it/possibly store them.
