    First off check your PS3's Serial # and look for "CECHA". Then compare to this list and see what NAND your PS3 has. DO NOT INSTALL THIS IF YOUR PS3 HAS 256MB NAND!! THIS WILL BRICK YOUR CONSOLE!!!

    PS3 Fat:
    CECHA = 256MB
    CECHB = 256MB
    CECHC = 256MB
    CECHE = 256MB
    CECHG = 256MB
    CECHH = 16MB
    CECHJ = 16MB
    CECHK = 16MB
    CECHL = 16MB
    CECHM = 16MB
    CECHP = 16MB
    CECHQ = 16MB

    PS3 Slim:
    CECH-20..A = 16MB
    CECH-20..B = 16MB
    CECH-21..A = 16MB
    CECH-21..B = 16MB
    CECH-250.A = 16MB
    CECH-250.B = 16MB
    CECH-250.A = 16MB
    CECH-250.B = 16MB
    CECH-251.A = 16MB
    CECH-251.B = 16MB


    SKIP TO STEP 6 IF ALREADY ON GEOHOT'S CFW!!


    1. Download the OFW for 3.55, this can be found on Sony's Website or [Click here to view the link].

    2. Put that in your USB (make sure it has nothing on it) in this location, /PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP

    3. Then go and install that by going to Settings>System Update>Install from Storage Device

    4. Then install Geohot's CFW/jailbreak, this can be found almost anywhere (google it).

    5. Repeat the installation steps.

    6. Grab Waninkoko's CFW from [Click here to view the link].

    7. Once thats done install that and then your all done :biggrin:. Go download some backups and put them in dev_hdd0/GAMES/ and you can now play them.



    UPDATE: use Rogero's Manager, all others make the games freeze often.

    I ordered one of the jailbreak dongles a few days ago and now I see this..should I stick with the JB Dongle or should I do this? PS: My NAND is jailbreak-able, and I want to be able to connect to PSN.

    Thanks :smile:

    Don't flame just because your PS3 probably bricked BECAUSE you forgot to read and spazzed out o.O

    BTW if you didn't brick your PS3 congrats because back ups are working :wink:
    you need to use Rogero's Manager to run them (multiman makes them freeze a lot).
