PS3 Jailbreak Nooby Help
PS3 Jailbreak Nooby Help –
I'm just entering to the PS3 scene and I know it's very late but with the new GTA V release I just have to.
I have some quick questions before I get in to this. I understand most of it because I was once in PSP scene.
So I have a PS3 that's has the OFW 4.21. I want to install CFW on this so I can download and play games using a HDD.
Is it possible to install CFW on 4.21 ? If so, What is the best CFW ? Should I update my PS3 to a later version before doing so (like 4.3X or 4.41) ?
Would installing CFW on 4.21 let me play any game(newest games) ?
Thank you so much for your time.
1) You need to have the right kind of PS3 to even think of downgrading....

Slims CECH 20xx & 21xx are completely NOR, although you could still use the ProgSkeet, or Teensy++ 2.0. It would be best to go with the E3 NOR Flasher again. The 25xx is a complete hit & miss affair. Get an early One, and your GOLDEN! Get One after 2011 not so much! The 30xx and the 40xx (Super Slim) CAN NOT BE DOWNGRADED OR USE CFW!
2) Assuming you can pass the first muster... Then you'll still have to purchase some kind of Hardware Downgrader... In the rare case that you have a 25xx that can NOT be downgraded to xFW3.55, but is still using the old metldr, and lvl0 Keys. You'd still need a Hardware Flasher (i.e. E3 NOR Flasher), in order to install a MFW though.
As for which "Firmware" is the "best"? My answer is to each their own. I like Habib, other might enjoy Rogero, while most others here would suggest ReBug *All are at CFW4.46*
Yes updateing to xFW4.46 would allow you to play more up-to-date Games w/o the need to modify the EBOOT Loaders.
