How do I get started?
So I am new to Jailbreaking my PS3. I have read and read and everytime I do I get more confused. So I know 2 things to get started.
1. I need a custon USB
2. I need PS3 v 4.1
Ok, I have neither. But lets start with the first one. What USBkey do I need, where do I get them and then what? I found one called PS3Yes! Supposedly it works with PSGroove (which i understand is the open source implementation). I found it from here: http://www.r4king.com/ps-jailbreak-modchip-for-ps3.html Its reasonably priced. is this a good place to buy from and should I buy it? Their website (http://www.ps3yes.com) doesnt seem to be working which throws up a red flag in my book. If I do get this will it downgrade my PS3? Much help appreciated!!
If you have updated past 3.55 and you are currently on 3.56 or 3.60 then you'll have to wait for a new method as nothing will work for you.
If not then you can install the original 3.55 firmware and install a custome firmware over that such as Waninkoko's PS3 Custom Firmware 3.55 or Wutangrza PS3 Custom Firmware 3.55.
For backup support you will need Multiman.
Please search for installation guide on the site, which will give you more detailed instructions.
