Noob but not an idiot –
Whaddup, I want to learn how to jailbreak my ps3, any help would be greatly appreciated, any takers? My firmware is 3.00 and ready to go, what's my first step?
Do you expect to get a dongle or install a always jail broken firmware?
If its the later then you have to install the 3.55 update by getting the pup file off the net (try filestube) for starters. Place this on a external drive or usb in the PS3 "slash" UPDATE folder and name it "PS3UPDATE . PUP" ( no spaces between the dot) and install it via the update from external drive option. Others will help you from here on out.
Also 3.00 means you have OtherOS capability and you will lose it if you upgrade and it takes quite a bit of tinkering to get it back and is quite hard if your not used to unix command line operating so take that into account as well.
EDIT: Sorry I cant post links and it interpreted some things as links so try to make out what you can
I would say update to firmware 3.55 using a usb drive, and use the same method to install 3.55 kmeaw..
The sticky guide in the General Jailbreak Discussion section would work nicely (CFW kmeaw + OFW 3.55 + Managers ready to install pack) - I can't post links cause I'm a "new member" , my post count got reset when psgroove merged with this site. Which is bullshit. Anyway, find that guide and you should be good.
Once you get some experience with kmeaw you can try REBUG cfw, which has some more options.
most excellent firmware to be on, the door is wide open
if you are interesting in playing backups (playing your games from the hdd without original disc)
1. upgrade to original firmware v3.55 (by downloading the original firmware from sony and installing it via usb)
2. install rebug v3.55.2 cfw via upgrade
3. install rebug updates
4. install latest version of multiman
if you are going with a pay dongle like "true blue" you will have to use rebug true blue version.
otherwise use cfw v3.55.2
alternatively you could also use kmeaw, but i strongly recommend rebug due to there awesome support.
