Hey CCM users
Today I will show you how to jailbreak a ps3.
Things you will need
  • 3.55 firmware ps3
  • e3 flasher (if ps3 not on 3.55,also,you would need to check with the Minim Firmware checker file if you're Ps3 can be downgraded to 3.55 or below,if not,downgrade will most likely result in a brick if you're console was unable to be downgraded to 3.55 or below)
  • a computer
  • usb drive
  • micro sd (make sure the sd and usb are formatted to FAT32)
Check to see if your ps3 is downgrade able.
Types that can be jailbroken
  • Fat Ps3 - Nand based Fat consoles require the ProgSkeet hardware flasher whilst Nor based consoles require the E3Flasher.
  • Slim Ps3 - all CECH3**** based Slim consoles cannot be downgraded at all.

Here is a chart to assist you through defining you're Ps3's model and downgrade information regarding different model Ps3's.

Downgradable Models:







Sorry Super Slim Users super slims can not be jailbroken.

@Gentle_Harry :/ the tutorial was relatively straight forward,the downgrade process of a Nor based Slim console was explained quite well?

@Lucifer Great to hear,you might want to add the minim firmware checker to the thread and also possibly add a Nand based tutorial/video also :smile:

I think it might just be you Cabcon I am able to see them on my computer but I will take a look into it :grinning:
Yeah now I can see them too. :smile: When I did the screenshot the website ran a cloudflare ddos protection screen (the 5 second wait screen xD) :smile: So if they turn it on you can't see the images :smile: But it's fine thank you! :smile:
