      Thanks will try asap
    7. sami1234
      is it compatible with all ps3 models
    8. bguerville
      Of course.
      It is compatible with all ps3 consoles supporting CFW installation (models up to CECH25xx).
    9. sami1234
      and ps3 super slim ?
    10. pinky
      no, superslim is incompatible.
    11. bguerville
      I already answered that... Super slim are models post CECH25xx so they are not compatible with any CFW.

      Your only 2 choices with a super slim are:
      1. Using the 4.70 backup injection hack.
      2. Installing a Cobra ODE...
    12. sami1234
      but is it compatible with all ps3 slim models ?
    13. pinky
      no, slim is 2k and 3k. only up to 2.5k, and even not all of those r compatible.
    14. bguerville
      I also answered that in post #9. Lol
      Slims come in 4 models.
      All CECH20xx & CECH21xx are compatible.
      Most CECH25xx are also compatible but there are exceptions.
      CECH 30xx are NOT compatible.

      If you want more details check this page where all the models are listed.
    15. sami1234
      the both of model a and model b are the same think ? yes or no
    16. sami1234
      and what is the defernce
      this and 'the downgrande and e3 flasher
    17. bguerville
      Generally speaking, in order to install a CFW on a console the maximum official firmware must be 3.55.
      If your console is running an official firmware > 3.55 then you must downgrade it back to 3.55 to install your CFW.
      The only way to downgrade a console on official firmware is to use a hardware flasher like Teensy or E3 flasher.
    18. sami1234
      so me i have ofw 4.66 . do i have to downgrade it to 3.55 . but is the only way to downgrade it is to use e3 flasher or some think like this there is not an other way

      No. There is no other way. Any video or forum telling you it can be done with a usb key is lying. Be careful, don't get fooled by those hoaxes...

      For information, a hardware flasher with a NOR clip + thermal paste will set you back 55-75 bucks depending on what you buy. You will also need to learn how to use the appropriate software & complete the process successfully. It's not a 5mn thing!
      To get a better idea of the task at hand, check out baileyscream Ultimate Foolproof Downgrading Guide

      If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself or cannot be bothered, a professional near you should charge you around 40/75 bucks to do it all for you.
