NOOB QUESTION... pls confirm/deny =) HDD upgrade/OFW question.
NOOB QUESTION... pls confirm/deny =) HDD upgrade/OFW question. –
hey guys!! first post great forums you have here, very informative and helpful!
ok, so, my slim 120gb ps3 is jailbroken and will be receiving a HDD upgrade soon. all well and good.
i went to jailbreak a mates PS3 today but he is already at 3.60 OFW which afaik cant be cracked yet... so, my question is this...
is the firmware 3.60 thing on the harddrive itself, or on a seperate chip?
just wondering whether when i upgrade the HD in my mates ps3 will i be able to install a lower version fimware (3.55) which will in turn let me JB it?
sorry for the noob question, still relatively new to the whole PS3 thing :S
anyway, cheers in advance!
use the search!!!
no the firmware is not on the harddrive. There is no chance of downgrading!
Technically PART of the firmware IS on the hard drive, depending on which model you have. Any model with the newer 16MB NOR stores part of the firmware on HDD, the rest in the 16MB onboard chips - the OP's slim? that's a 16MB NOR model and, as such, stores a large chunk of the firmware on the HDD. You're right about the rest though; NO downgrading (for the moment) on anything above 3.55
