I'm very new to the Ps3 jailbreak so please guide to avoid any problem. After I done the jail, what do I need to do next? Like wii hack, we either use usb loader to play games on. What do I use to play PS3 that I download? I notice some game I have download is not in ISO format, is this correct? the size are 10 to 13gb...
Man I got this install but I dont have a big enough hard drive to test any thing out with. My Wii HDD is looking like a porkchop waiting to be eaten. If it take 3 hours to get that thing back up and running I would use it. But I'll be with out games on the Wii.
Not even from a CFW?

(not that I want to do that... just to know if it's possible...)
in system settings it will say 3.55 it wont mention KMEAW anywhere as its just a modded version of sony's 3.55, your firmware is installed into system memory not hdd, if you swap hdd and install ofw you will lose the cfw...

I have installed this and I get black screen with cod: black ops. And Dead rising 2 freezes on loading screens. The Sims 3 seems ok but haven't play much, since I have been trying to get the other 2 to work. Are these problem games? Is there a fix for these on cfw. I have been searching but all I can find is changing the eboot.bin, but have also read that you have to have the original eboot.bin with cfw. These are the only games I own currently, so I cannot test any others, to see if I am just doing something wrong or if there are special fixes with these 2 games.
I am copying the games to the internal drive with the latest version of multiman and gaia manager, from the original discs.
Update: Dead rising 2 needs to be played from the external drive not the internal. Haven't tried it yet but makes sense since I have been backing it up to the internal.
Also I found some posts after searching that black ops needs to be played with the disc in drive trick. I have tried that but still get nothing but a black screen.
Update2: Got both those games working. DR2 from external drive. COD:BO from internal with a game disc in the drive and run fix permissions.
This is a little easier than I thought it was gonna be. I guess it's a good time to mod a ps3, with cfw u do not need any jailbreak and do not need to edit games. Also, with the new loaders having the lv2 patch built in, all there is left is to figure out how to play online without getting banned.;)
No working drive
Hi, I was wondering if this will work if my drive isn't working. Or is there a way to get cfw to work without a working drive. Thanks.
do you mean HDD or blu-ray drive?

if you meant blu-ray drive then no you need a working blu-ray drive to install your games
Do you still have to have a disc in the drive the run the backups?
I backed up my GTA IV to the internal hard drive and wouldn't load.
So I put my COD: World of War and tried to load the backup and still
won't load. I used Multiman. In the Multiman download there is 2 pkg
files and in Gaia Manager there is 3. Which one is the correct one?

for multiman use the package without the WT on the end of its name if your using KMEAW cfw
for Gaia manager use the package with "games" on the end of the name this way Gaia manager and multiman both use game backups from the /GAMES directory
So, which one do you prefer, GAIA Manager or multiMAN?
What is the advantages and disadvantages of both of them?
EDIT: Like Wii, does PS3 run both PAL and NTSC Games?
