Newb with a few basic Q's re: jailbreaking, firmware etc –
I am new to this scene and i'm interested to understand what my options are ( if any )
I have a PS3 Slim on 4.25 firmware (updated it today) , can it be downgraded or put back onto the firmware where it can be jailbroken?
if i have to change any hardware i'll give it a go i guess theres guides out there etc?
i'm guessing i might be abit stuck being on the latest firmware so i'm wondering if trying to buy an old ps3 unit might be the way forward?
unless the newer firmware can be jailbroken won't the ps3 "hacking" scene eventually become non existent? i don't want to sound like
a pessimist, more curious if anything.
All the best
Is it possible to get on PSN with a jailbroken ps3? i've seen people using mod manager when playing gta iv online so wondering how the hell they've done that?
i've done various research but seem to be getting more confused if anything :/
Nothing above 3.55 can be jailbroken. You need to downgrade to 3.55 to jailbreak. If you console came out of the box with firmware above 3.55, then you can't downgrade. Otherwise you can use a E3 flasher or Progskeet to downgrade. Once that is done, jailbreaking is very easy.
Keep an eye on the buy/sell/trade section of this site for a good deal. You may want to also look on eBay for a 3.55 console.
It is currently possible to get on PSN with a jailbroken PS3, but don't expect it to last more that a few weeks. 95% of the time you won't be able to connect to PSN with a jailbroken PS3.

You will need to jailbreak your PS3 to mod GTA IV.
