I just bought Resistance 3 - DOH!
I just bought Resistance 3 - DOH! –
I'm on CFW 3.55 and it wants me to upgrade to 3.66 to play it. I forgot about that before I bought it, because all of my other older retail games work fine.
If I upgrade to 3.66, will that open up PSN for me again as well? Or can they sense I was on CFW before and ban me? The kids really want the custom levels built for LBP
If you are preapared to lose CFW and all it gives , I would suggest , delete any of your own backed up games from the hd , then you flash it with OFW 3.55 and then upgrade it.
If you want PSN , think it will upgrade you to 3.72 , and not 3.66
But if you can afford it maybe get a 2nd machine for your online PSN needs and newer games?
If that do not sound intressting, I am sure you could make somebody happy.
By selling your CFW 3.55 ps3 , and just get yourself a new one , if you dont care for CFW anymore
ps3s with 3.55 and lower firmware gets more rare by the day.
So I am sure somebody would be happy to pay you extra bucks for a Jailbreakable machine , and you would have cash for a new ps3 slim with 3.72 firmware and maybe some candy & Ice Cream for you and the kids
First off, the only way I could see you getting your money back for the game is to call the game manufacturer, and tell them the game freezes at the start, every time, and other games work still. And have them replace your opened copy with a new copy. And hope that it gets back in time to return it where you purchased it. The store might help you out if you tell them that, but most likey they will tell you to seek out the manufacturer.
Or, wait for a fix... perhaps see what this JFW has is store, or others.
Possibly use the current CFW OFW swap methods, for CFW and OFW v3.72 <<ONLY WAY YOU GET PSN BACK<< via Teensy++ or ProgSkeet...or the soon to be released E3 Flasher.
I am not sure, but I assume you could backup the levels with a USB device
Yeah if you update you'll be able to use PSN just fine.
Sony don't really seem to mind if you CFW related files on your console, but you should delete backups like Dreamwebber said since they take up HDD space.
Btw, almost every game released within the past few months require 3.55+ firmware.
Thanks for the great replies guys.
it's a tough decision.
I'm currently looking for a 2nd used PS3. I found one for $150 (no ctrlrs) but it has the YLOD.
Your more then welcome
Yeah it is indeed a though decision.
Personally I have played with the idea of getting a 3.55 or lower machine with broken bd drive , and then using the Cobra Usb dongle to run my backups discless of harddrive.
Finding a 3.55 FW ps3 for a good price is getting harder , and unlike some other people here whom seem to be able to find them easily in stores in the US , where I live every machine is 3.60 or higher , and finding the 3.55 ones are not impossible on our local version of Ebay (Sweden) , but usually they will without a doubt cost you more then a New 320GB ps3 slim, because people simply knows the jailbreakable ones are of more value to others
In sweden, in the most popular modding stores I know of , it will cost you like 200USD to have a Ylod fixed , and that do not even include the shipping to the store and back.
I am sure its much cheaper where you live to get it the ylod repaired , so if you do get it , hope everything works out
Let us know how it goes

Well I found a used 80gig fat ps3 system for $170CDN. I hooked it up and found OFW 3.05. I had a tear in my eye when I upgraded it to 3.72
No I have a hacked console and an OFW console and am happily playing Resistance 3 and can't wait for Drake!
