    Hello everybody:

    Im Daren and I have just bought a PS3 today for my children and I.

    I am not new to console modding as I used to be a moderator on a Nintendo Wii forum many moons ago and help people daily.

    I appreciate how frustrating it is when people sign up and ask the same old questions however, I haven't grasped the lingo yet and all I am looking for is a bit of guidance as how best to proceed. I have thrown myself in to this today and I have now confused myself with the overload of information :apologetic:

    My PS3 details are below:

    The model number of my PS3 is CECH - 4003A
    The firmware it is running is 4.82

    As I go through the modding of this PS3, I would appreciate it if I could post my questions below for people to nudge me in the right direction?

    My first questions are :P

    Should I update my current firmware from 4.82 to ...? at present I have not connected to the internet
    If I stay on 4.82 do I follow this tutorial or is there an up to date one? -

    If I do update do I use this tutorial or is there an up to date one? -


    Once I have modded my console, does that mean can I plug a HDD and rip my games to it

    I appreciate your help and assistance in advance and I will of course pay it forward as always.

    Thank you

    Ok It appears I have fallen at the first hurdle. First off I can't find anywhere to edit, so I can add this to my original post. Second it appears I have a super slim model (load disk on top) therefore, am I right in saying that I can't jailbreak it? - Back to the drawing board it seems.

    Easy bud, welcome to the forums.

    I believe your model is compatible with the HEN exploit.
    Check my signature for a detailed guide (it has been writen for 4.84 firmware but just replace the files with updated ones procedure is still the same)
