PS3 4.31 Jailbreak –
Ok so are all those videos about 4.31, 4.30 and 4.25 jailbreak fake? Maybe I shouldn't even try to download them(they're password protected anyways and require a damn survey), but I've been pretty desperate to get the damn jailbreak and downgradin hasn't proven to be any easier. I'm kind of a noob and I'm getting pretty confused with people stating the opposites about the jailbreaks, I mean some people are saying that this thing works and some people say it doesn't. But anyways, I just wanna know how can I get the jailbreak for my 4.31 ps3? Also lately GTA IV has been full of hackers online so have they all jailbroken their ps3? People are also saying that you can't go online with a jailbreak, but some say that mods can be used online if you data transfer the mods to your nonjailbroken ps3, but I don't wanna do that, because it will overwrite my current files on that ps3 if I use the ethernet cable. So yeah help?
Only fw 3.55 is able to install custom firmware.

There is no other way to do this..
Everything you said regarding GTA IV is correct. As for jailbreaks above 3.55 no none of them are legitimate, anything over 3.55 currently needs a hardware flasher. You can never trust anything on sites like youtube because video's can be faked and the uploader can have full control of the comments they want to be seen. Anything like a 4.xx jailbreak will be all over sites like this within a day.
Forgive me for being ignorant, just getting back into the scene, but what do you mean anything over 3.55 needs a hardware flasher or is faked when there are hundreds of threads on this forum about people going from 3.55 to 4.30 Rogero/Rebug and doing so just using the recovery menu? Are these CFWs just 3.55 in disguise as 4. xx? Sorry for the stupid question, will go a long way to help me re-understand the scene though.

here's a simple explanation:
if you are on OFFICIAL FIRMWARE equal to or LESS than 3.55 THEN you CAN upgrade to CUSTOM FIRMWARE 3.55 (KMEAW) or higher CUSTOM FIRMWARE (Rogero 4.30, Rebug 4.21)
-the order is OFW 3.55 > CFW 3.55 > CFW 4.XX
- you have to upgrade in that order.
if you are on OFFICIAL FIRMWARE equal to or higher than 3.56 THEN you HAVE TO HAVE a hardware flasher to downgrade to firmware 3.55
-the order is OFW 3.56+ > OFW/CFW 3.55 (Using hardware flasher) > CFW 4.XX
-NOT ALL PS3's can be downgraded with a hardware flasher. check your model before thinking of buying one.
Hope this helps shed some light on your question. Cheers
