3.66 Jailbreak? –
Sort of new to this forum. I used to have my PS3 jailbroken on 3.56 but I was an idiot becauz I unjailbroke it and upgraded even after using the DNS bypass trick to
get past the next update. Now I screwed up even more coz I'm stuck on 3.66. I know that currently it's impossible to downgrade from 3.66, but is their anyway I can
jailbreak 3.66? If I go to YouTube or search it on Google, i get a ton of links but none of them have the proper .PUP file, some are even viruses (McAfee saved my ***).
Anyways, is their actually a legitimate way to jailbreak 3.66?
If I'm posting this question in the wrong place, please atleast guide me to where I should be posting it.
Your only option is downgrade using a hardware flasher (teensy++ or infectus, for nor and nand respectively).
I'm sorry but I'm really dumb when it comes to PS3's, etc. What is a hardware flasher? I won't be able to spend money, just putting that out there.
A hardware flasher is a piece of hardware that can flash the nand/nor in the console. Not only do these cost money (iirc, infectus costs ~$50?), but they also require quite a bit of skill with a soldering iron to install. If that is not an option, then you are out of luck, short of buying a new console that wasn't upgraded past 3.55, which as you said, you won't be doing.
Thanks anyway, atleast you took the time to explain which I appreciate.
Np. Sorry i could not help.
What Ahou said is correct. There is no free, or easy solution to downgrade a ps3 that is above firmware 3.55. An item like the infectus, or a development board like a teensy to downgrade the newer slim models, are really not even an option yet because the software to downgrade is in its infancy. Forgive me for forgetting the name of the developer, but he was working on updating the code he had to read/write to NAND/NOR. Even If you could manage to solder either board to your ps3, there is no automated or simplified tool to downgrade for ya. It involves reading the dump, replacing certain pieces of the dump with the CoreOS of a dump from a pre 3.56 ps3, than rewriting it back to the NAND. Its not for the faint hearted, to say the least.
As a general rule, do not believe anything you read on YouTube, particularly in something like this. If, and its a big If, a downgrade or custom firmware is developed for ps3's that are above 3.55, you will read about it here or any legitmate ps3 scene site. If it's not on a scene site, don't trust it.It's best just to stay away from YouTube for ps3 matters, honestly. Keep in mind, the first custom firmwares, if ever developed, will most likely only work on ps3's that currently have custom firmware. Hypothetically, if you're on 3.55, you'll be able to upgrade to the new custom firmware. If your on any higher firmware, you won't be able to upgrade. That's a general understanding unless something big changes.
If you want to be able to jailbreak your ps3, your only options are to 1.) wait 2.) sell your current ps3 and buy a model with firmware 3.55 or less, or 3.) keep your current ps3 for online play, and purchase a second ps3 for custom firmware. If strapped for cash, you could purchase a ps3 with a broken blu-ray lens off eBay, and use that. If just the lens is bad, and not the entire drive, you'll be able to play a good chunk of games off the hard drive, and fix it later down the line.
At the current time, option 1 is probably the worst option. The next generation console may be released by than. Good Luck in your endeavor.
