Is Staying On FW 3.15 really necessary anymore?
Is Staying On FW 3.15 really necessary anymore? –
Just wondering. I've been on FW 3.15 for awhile now and not sure if I should upgrade to FW 3.41 yet. I know the only thing I really lose is the "Other OS" feature, but I have seen some self installation of the "Other OS" feature floating around.
I also know that since I have jailbroken my PS3 it seems like I have to upgrade anywayz because most of the games out require @ least that to run at all.
Unless there is a way to emulate the newer Firmware.
Regardless, what do you guys think? I just know there is no way back to 3.15 once I go to 3.41...so....
I have a PS3 with 3.15 on it aswell. I do not use otherOS.
Would it matter to me at all, if I upgraded it to 3.41?
I've just been too scared to do so, since I've read about it bricking the PS3.
If you don't care about OtherOS, upgrade. You can do so by USB. Search these forums for USB firmware upgrade. You'll come up with a bunch of threads explaining how to do it.
I'm in the same boat as you. I've kept it this long, I kinda just want to rock it forever. But fallout new vegas is giving me issues :/

I upgraded mine from 3.15 to 3.41, it took like 5 minutes lol.

Thank you Geohot and fail0verfl0w for fully hacking the PS3.
I'm just about to do the same thing. Would you mind posting a download link of the 3.41fw you used. I'm assuming you have a USA PS3?

tpmjb: I am aware that PL3 works on FW 3.15 as I am already on that...but when you say it works on all games, you need to read up on that.

A lot of the newer games use features that are not apart of the 3.15 FW feature set, but DO use the ones in at least 3.41. So even if you get the game to work in 3.15 FW, the game probably will have problems or not work very long since it needs to access features not present in FW 3.15. At least from what I've read.
Looks like there is another thread that deals with people running games on 3.15 FW here: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f118/3-4...-3-15-a-69031/
Anywayz, on the games that say "You need to update your system firmware to 3.41 in order to play" how do you get around that then? Which JB payload are you using?
I'm using iLLNESS's newest release for the USBHID Bootloader Users here :http://psx-scene.com/forums/f178/ill...-thread-67940/ (iLLNESS's PSGrooPIC Hexes and Information Thread)
Using the PL3 default_payload from his package
I'm on FW 3.15...using the Gaia Manager v1.03.01 which you can find here: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f178/ps3...ew-list-68925/ (PS3 Backup Managers, Emulators & Homebrew List)
Is there something I'm missing here? I'm going to try Rogero's Manager next and also try leaving a game in the drive as I have only tried to go "Disc Less". And just so you guys understand what's happening...I pick a game in the manager to run...manager kicks me out to the XMB....I go up to the app_home/....the game shows up....I run it from there....and then it will either run, or kick me out back to the XMB with no error.
So far, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time works flawlessly from Internal HDD, Discless.
