Jailbreak is only useful if don't put your PS3 online anymore.
And new games who need newer firmware would be impossible to play.
Yea, but.. There are a slew of games out there right now that should make ya happy and who knows down the road......they might the hack doable for 4.2.
Build a better mouse trap and they build a better mouse.
Yeah. Just like the PSP scene. What they do is to hack the firmwares so they are compatible with the newest games, right? So, something similar could (possibly) be made to the PS3.
Great post. Hope for a coming iTouch port.
Can i use my PC (usb port, conroller) instead of JailBreak or SmartPhones to "jailbreak" my PS3.
Now my question I haven't been able to find an answer to...
Will this be able to be used to install other firmware? I have a demonstration PS3 and would like to get the demo firmware off if possible... I figure if this can allow custom firmware it should be able to put on normal firmware other than what is already on the ps3.
I plan on trying to jailbreak the demo model to see if it is even doable, but I don't want to mess with my retail ps3. the demo model however can't connect to PSN anyway.
The demo firmware can not be overwritten with ANY standard methods... formatting it. Going into the debug menu and resetting it back to factory. Redoing the file system.
It is obvious some of those won't work because it doesn't touch the kernel or whatever is holding the firmware, but if the jailbreak can allow access, then I want to try and change the firmware.
So will this be possible perhaps?
What is the best way to remove all traces of backup manager on Hard Drive
Thinking about playing with Groove but would like to return my system to a virgin unmodified state afterwards.
I understand you can erase the HDD /LAUN12345 folder and all of the games with it.. In addition to deleting the 3 .dat files which upload to PSN to show games played.
My question is when you do the step that installs Packages after first boot with groove/jailbreak, where are those files installed and how do you clean them up?
Would installing a clean new hard drive for all jailbreak experimentation be the cleanest way? then replace the original hard drive when done?
Any thoughts as to how FW upgrades are going to be handled? Think it's going to be like the PSP where Jailbreak users now have to follow an upgrade path different than Sony's?
