Will a teensy++ do... or hardware chip installation –
anything on a slim with 3.66?
pls dont flame me, I know there is no jailbreak or standard way of doing it with 3.66 but wondering if there is a hardware chip device that can do it.
I'm a tech and not afraid of microscopic soldering, I have a superfine iron and have done several ps2 chips on surface mount components.
or is 3.66 really forget it........ at this stage?
A teensy++ will do for your slim. You should take a look in the technical section of the site to get a better understanding of the wiring and more information on the downgrade method. I am not aware of a person who has done it successfully...Yet (on a 16mb console), but it is likely to work. There is news that a few developers are working on a pc app to make things easier in terms of reading and writing the NOR flash. Good to see more people interested in this.

hmmmm yeah true, but i had this console 18 months as standard, possibly more, before I even thought about this.
I have done modbo 750 chips on mine and others on ps2.
Kinda hoping it would be some way possible on ps3.
My main gripe is as usual......... why cant i play my ps2 on my ps3 after spending $$$$ with sony!!
Why cant i make backups so my kids dont trash the original at $70 or more....
I have had sony since PS1 like lots n my allegiance to Sony is not being upheld by them.
Do I need to sell up n go xbox??
If Sony MUST control your Playstaion, which i disagree with, BUT you'd think they could inbuild to the software such that you could load an original game and it would allow you there n then to make a one off backup. Somehow this should be possible.
Athough I did hear for genuine gamers they do a service for 5 bux where you send your original disc in and they re supply a new one in exchange.... ???
still doesnt cover my issues...... I WANT my PS3 chipped so I can do whatever I damn well please like my PS2.
Sony are gonna hit themselves in foot cos if they keep this shit up n bring out a PS4, nobody gonna buy it!!!!
I think any PS should be backward compatible end of story.
SONY needs to wake up or lose out cos not evryone has the know how to work around etc but everyone wants backward compatibility.
I love Sony n love PS, have had all 3, but if a 4 comes out n this 'control' you shit dont stop, I aint buyin it, n by that i mean compulsory upgrades etc.
end of rant!!!!!!! Sony listen!!!!!!!!
Hardware downgrade is possible for any firmware 3.56+. Infectus for 256mb NAND, and tennsy++ for 16mb NOR
