    thanks for the TUT but i am still confused with one thing some people say you have to be on 3.41 and some like you say 3.41 or lower??
    i am on 3.40 but it doesn't work (PSJB) It doesn't boot to the jailbreak no matter how fast or slow i only get red and green light and if it boots to dash with it in it says unknown usb device but most of the time i get black screen with red and green light lit.i am not a newbie to this sort of stuff i have been flashing 360's etc for a long time but this has me stumped...

    just update to 3.41. Each FW has to have a different payload. 3.41 is the most popular then 3.15 because of Linux. I don't think there are payloads for any other FWs.

    The thing is if you are on 3.55 can't you just remove your hdd from the ps3 hook it up to your windows pc and reformat it to fat 32 then put it back in the ps3 and then download the ofw 3.41 or 3.5 firmware from this site chuck it on a usb flash disk with the firmware in ROOT/PS3/UPDATE put it in the ps3 when you power on with the reformatted drive and update that firmware to the hard drive when it askes for it? I recently bought a ps3 with a hard drive problem, i just replaced the hdd and did what i just descibed but with ofw 3.55 from sony so i could play gt5. Regarded you just back up your game saves and data before you format i can't see how it wouldn't work.

    FIRWARE ISN'T ON THE HDD. It's stored (the first 16MB anyway) on NAND FLASH so formating the HDD will only get you to where it asks for 3.55 or up. If it was that easy why would we have to do the downgrade the way we do? Read before you post again. This is an old issue.

    Hey guys, I was just wondering which version of the ps3 is the best for jailbreaking. I plan on buying a ps3 either on boxing day (Dec. 26) or sometime soon after. I'm very new to the ps3 but I have done modding on both the Xbox 360 and Wii so I'm not totally ignorant to the whole modding thing.

    I plan on upgrading the hard drive myself so thats not really a concern for me, but my question is should I buy a new Slim model or an older ps3 with the backwards compatibility? I don't want to end up with a ps3 with the newer firmware and be barred completely from jail breaking. I went through that already with the ipod touch.

    You won't be able to get a fat new. I would get a new slim, but get one before they get 3.55 out.
