    Hey guys, so i just signed up to ask if this tutorial is still up to date and if theres a noob-friendly tutorial since im a complete newbie in the ps3 modding scene. I have a ps3 slim CECH-2504A with the Date Code: 1A and the minimum version of 3.56.

    So my question is, if im good to go with my ps3 to get cfw and if there´s a step-by-step tutorial for newbies like me.

    Thanks in advance.

    A minimum installable fw version higher than 3.56 would mean that the console is not compatible with CFW & attempting a jailbreak with the ps3xploit Flash Writer would brick it.

    If the MinVerChk PUP displays a minimum installable fw version = 3.56, your console is CFW compatible.

    In this case, you should follow the instructions I gave in this post to the letter. Don't omit any step!

    @kojie kabuto

    The information you seek is widely available.

    All the HAN Tools are accessible on the ps3xploit website under the HAN Tools v3.0 menu bar entry.
    The ACT/IDPS dumper is one of those tools.
    http://ps3xploit.com/han/actidps_dumper.html

    If you need more explanations than the ps3xploit instructions offer, about this tool & how to use it, read carefully part 2 of this tutorial.

    Install what firmware?
    The latest ps3 update is 4.82.
    The ps3xploit Flash Writer 2.0 currently only works with OFW 4.82 so if you wanted to know whether or not you can jailbreak your console on 4.82, the answer is YES, at the condition that your console is CFW compatible of course. ;)

    It's perfectly normal that the gsmes you install don't appear in multiman.
    HAN is NOT for cfw!
    New CFW users must learn to use a customised firmware with games as iso images.

    Hi guys

    Need help installing cfw on PS3. Not sure If this is correct thread to post this.
    I'm completely new to this so please forgive my ignorance. I have a ps3 SLIM on ofw 4.82. It's a CECH-2504B model. I did the MinVerChk check, said min fw= 3.40 therfore I can jailbreak right?

    Now I want to use exploit v2.0 to jailbreak ps3 but my question is, is any method (Hdd or usb) a more safer option than another. Say for instance, if after patching with flash writer, I dump and the validation tool gives me errors/warnings in roso and ros1. In such a situation wud one method provide one with more chances of recovery than another or does it make no difference.

    Also am I taking a huge or unnecessary risk If I use andriod Hotspot to connect ps3 to Internet to perform this jailbreak. In other words, will using mobile data significantly increase one's chances of bricking console. Thanks in advance

    Yes you can jailbreak your console.

    Use the following steps, don't omit anything.

    No particular problem with using a hot-spot although WiFi is never ideal when it comes to ps3 network connections.

    The only way to brick the console with the Flash Writer 2.0 is to flash a wrong or corrupted hex file.

    This made me smile.
    You finally realize the ramifications of ALL THE WARNINGS put up long before you even clicked download.

    If you do attempt this again, make sure you follow the rule of thumb: Make THREE dumps. validate ALL THREE. Patch ONE. Validate it. THEN write. IF you aren't sure of something....start from THE BEGINNING. If you don't understand EXACTLY what you are doing, or do not get EXACTLY the result of a READ operation, DONT WRITE!!!

    A second point of advice: Backing up your computer is just as important.....don't wait for a disaster... ::wink::

    You need to read A LOT MORE before you even think about downloading ANYTHING.
    Step ZERO: Know your model number.
    Step ONE: Read EVERYTHING you can to UNDERSTAND what you are doing, and evaluate if this is something you want to RISK.

    It will make your life a TON easier, if you understand exactly what you're doing, and how before you even attempt.... you can see in the above comments what happens when you do not understand what you are doing... :)

    Please post in English. If you are not able to, add a Google Translation. ;)


    Multiman & other backup managers are homebrews.
    HAN doesn't support PS3 homebrews on OFW as you can see in the OP.

    In the future, a new exploit might enable you to use homebrews on OFW, if such a hack is ever released, but currently you must have a CFW to run homebrews.
