Thinking about fixing my old phat YLOD'd PS3...
So i was thinking about the possibility of having my old 80gb PS3 that suffered from a YLOD as a homebrew console.
But then I was wondering if there is a even a possibility of doing so. I am not sure of the firmware that is on it since I've never even tried fixing it.
I am assuming it's either 4.11 or 4.20 because it died on me while i was still playing Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning with all DLCs (the last one released in April). Since 4.11 released in February and 4.20 in June 2012, chances are the console is on 4.11.
Now I am aware that It's not possible to jailbreak past 3.55 but I've seen downgrade/repair services on Ebay, which I'm wondering if It's legit.
Sorry if this has been asked before but I haven't looked into PS3 homebrew scene all too much, especially compared to the PSP scene.
