How do you jailbreak PS3 nowadays?
MinVerChck > 4.84.2 HFW > Rebug 4.84.2 REX?
Yea basically in a nutshell but there are many steps that are left out to ensure you don't end up with a brick. Follow the Ps3xploit guide here on the forums, not a YouTube tutorial. Ask any questions after that in it's appropriate thread.
Thanks. Just to be 100% sure these files have to be in the root of FAT32 usb pendrive?
And I can update PS3 to OFW "normally", I mean just connect it to my Wi-Fi and update it online from settings? No need to look for some older OFW versions?
You need 4.84.2 HFW installed to use these tools:
Most of what you have there is for hosting them yourself via a mini web server on your PC.
Follow this guide from the PS3 Xploit Team to Jailbreak your PS3:
You can follow the sets in this guide but host the Xploit yourself on your PC if you know how to use miniweb servers on your PC. Or follow the guide and use the ttols online on the PS3 Xploit site.
Do I need to first update to official newest firmware or just flash HFW on whatever OFW currently is on?
Detailed Steps Don't skip any one of them :
OFW 4.84 and HFW 4.84 are almost identical, and the PS3 doesn't distinguish them from one other when you go to install them.
Install HFW 4.84 twice from a USB formatted in FAT32 with MBR. If the PS3 can detect it on the XMB under Music, Photo, Video then it's formatted correctly.
Install HFW once via the XMB System Update and once again via the Recovery Menu if the first method will not allow you a second installation. As @nCadeRegal says, do not use a YouTube tutorial; instead, the guide @Cypher_CG89 posted a link to is the one to use as it's the official documentation written by the developers of PS3Xploit. Follow it to the letter, and don't miss anything out.
If you're unsure of anything at any point, please post here before going ahead as missing out seemingly small, yet crucial steps can lead to your PS3 becoming a brick. This can be easily avoided by being meticulous and thorough in the jailbreak process.
see my posted tutotrial and judge it have all steps to do
Three people in this thread, including two moderators, have advised the OP to use an official written tutorial from PSX-Place and you ignore this advice and post a tutorial of your own to promote your YouTube channel.
I am not questioning the quality of the video tutorial you made, whatsoever. There's nothing wrong with using a video as a visual reference which is secondary to a written tutorial, but the official documentation authored by the actual developers will always be preferable to a video tutorial on YouTube, of which anybody can make and post.
i really do think someone from team or connected should do a official video tut so this could be over with once and for all.
They use MrMarios vid tuts as reference, it's in one of the tabs on the guide as hes has been doing decent tuts for a while now. Plus am sure a read in a thread somewhere that someone on the team knows him or some like that.
No i didn't even read post you talk about i just enter directly to the thread and put the link and there many videos on internet but 90% of them skipp important step which is verifying the dump after using flash writer and before rebooting most them reboot directly so that can cause brick to console if the patch harm the dump while it can be saved while the ps3 is still working
It's no problem; you're a knowledgeable poster, and I have no reason to doubt your video tut is good.
Héhé i know to be carefull to people cause a guide that miss important steps to take is riskyyy and it broke them i work always to bring full help and you right cause as i say early many videos doesn't have documentation and details like the devs set in the website
