An ode does not give you the ability to install custom firmware. You need a ps3 that can have CFW installed on the hardware (regardless of ode or no ode). You cannot get CFW on a 3k or 4k series ps3. Not yet, maybe not ever. Time will tell.

I think it's not possible. You usually use an ode if the ps3 is not capable of a CFW.
