    There is a way that you can jailbreak your system but you have to open it and then downgrade it. The highest firmware that can be jailbroken is 3.55. But check into e3, Infectus, Progsheet are many that you can use. However most of them you have solder. If not there is a mod in the for sale area offering downgrade for a cost. Thanks

    Wait wait, let's do this in steps. So your jailbroken?

    You need to rip YOUR own games to your PS3 with something like multiMAN. Also most games require you to have a PS3 blu-ray (doesn't matter which game) inside the PS3 in order to play games from HDD. It's as simple as that. Now newer PS3 games cannot be played since they require a higher firmware (3.6x+) some games can't still be managed to work with a little tinkering with the EBOOT file. But there are only a FEW exceptions to this, most won't work.

    Well step by step, What's your firmware? 3.55 is the latest firmware that can be jailbroken though.

    I think that would be 3.7 T_T, just buy new one at best buy store , So we cannot transfer games what download on internet to EXT HDD to play on PS3? And PS3 can play Every EXT HDD or just some Kind of this or only EXT HDD PS3?

    I'm going to put it out for you.
    If you are on 3.55 then we can help you.
    If you are on 3.72, there's absolutely nothing you can do.

    Is that called system version? If that then it said 3.65
