Hello all. I recently obtained a PS3 from a friend. I wish to hack it. Problem is...
I have no idea whatsoever on where to begin. I don't know what a DEX/CEX is. I don't know which CFW is the best nor telling which is which. There's so many fake vids out there claiming to do "this and that" for my PS3. I can't seem to find a proper newb friendly guide. I haven't modded a Sony product since my PSP's years ago and I barely even remember how to do that.
What I seem to have figured out is that 3.55 is the best FW for CFW. Kinda like how 5.01 and 5.50 is for PSP, I think. I also ran that "MinverChk" (not sure if I spelled that right) to see my base firmware (1.90, it's a pretty old PS3). So now I think my next step is to downgrade my PS3 from 4.30 OFW to 3.55 OFW.
Then from there, I need to find a guide for softmodding (if there is one hopefully, hardmodding sucks) to a CFW. And then find one for backing up my games on a HDD and playing them from there and then probably another for updating those games and putting in their DLC's. WOW! Lots of stuff I got ahead of me I think.
Sooooooo yeah, if anyone can point me towards guides that fits all of these needs and whatever else you think will be handy, please help! Thanks for reading.
