    With PS3Xploit V3 you will be able to install PKG files (Games) but that would be all you can do for the moment.

    Can you install signed homebrew?

    Technically you don't need multiman if you can install the games directly though there are very few games that are disk only. That' where you would need it.
    RetroArch Is a nice homebrew, no doubt about it there. Probably someone would fake sign it into a pkg.

    Afaik homebrew is signed with 3.55 keys & after 3.55 Sony added a whitelist which has a list of official software signed with 3.55 keys.

    You would need to find some way to add the homebrew to the whitelist or patch the whitelist check out of the kernel.

    (I'm assuming I can say this here) I got myself a superslim 4.82 PS3 recently, can I get anything out of it? I'm completely new on PS3 hacking myself.

    No. The super slim models are completely incompatible. The one main prerequisite to being able to jailbreak a system is having a minimum version of 3.55... the super slims have a min version of 3.56... so Sony blocked you...

    I bought a Playstation 3 super slim today on a recomendation that this version hade the best hardware. But It seems like no super slim will be able to run games from harddrive becouse of firmware?

    So I will sell this PS3 super slim again, the question is what I should buy instead? what version is best? And does it have to run a specific firmware or is it possible to downgrade? Is it only the 3.55 that can run games from external disk?

    I have found a CECH-2503B with Date code 0D. This should be possible to mod but only if its on 3.55 and I dont know that. If its on a higher firmware it needs to be downgraded right? And that demands extra hardware?

    I have found that in some cases it can also be modified at 4,82?

    Since my fifth 60gig ps3 died, I'm at a crossroads of what to do. Mostly, angry enough to consider selling off my collection to put toward something more immediately helpful, like pc parts.

    But also wondering if maybe i can pick a hackable one up for cheap to help curb the need for the time being.

    Found this one at a local bookman's. Should be, based on what I've read, but I've completely forgot how to do the thing to get it on cfw if it is past 3.55 already.

    Since i have to wait until payday anyway before i can pursue this, it might help if i knew what i needed to do.

    Whelp, against my better principles, I picked up an early slim PS3 second-hand.

    CECH-2001A. Since the last time I've done anything like this was back when 3.55 was a requirement to do anything, I'm a complete newbie to the PS3Xploit thing, and I need a guide I can read on the subject to how to do it correctly, and get this bugger on some CFW. Hopefully no need for a HAN-job (lol). Still gotta test and make sure that it's all up and running. But considering that the date-code on the shop's tag for it shows it was in their inventory since June, I'm pretty sure it isn't likely to be on 4.82, if that means anything.

    It's odd that this thread has new posts 5 years after someone randomly asked if their PS3 could be hacked. Never seen anything like it.

    I believe if you want full CFW and not HAN if the Firmware is above 3.55 you'd still need to have it flashed back to 3.55? Unless there's new methods I'm unaware of which is entirely possible.

    The process advertises itself as being able to even go straight to CFW from 4.82 OFW. Didn't go *that smoothly* to me, as I had to borrow some extra files and a patched CFW file meant to facilitate the process, but I was then since able to flash into proper 4.82.2 Rebug. It definitely took more tries than I felt it should have.
