OK so I don't yet have a ps3 but have been looking into getting a preowned older model to "jailbreak". From what I have read it seems that It needs to have fw 3.55 or below to be jail broken, But If i do get an older "phat" ps3 and it has a new firmware is there an easier way to downgrade it without installing an e3 flasher or something similar? and also If i get that far ahead and end up with a ps3 with cfw, is it possible to play back ups of newer titles etc? or will they not work due to needing newer ofw? sorry if this doesn't make sense, I'm a ps3 noob, I have experience with cfw on my psp but don't have a clue about the ps3 scene, and if it is worth it anymore. I do currently also have an xbox and may decided to just stick with that and maybe flash the drive on that but a ps3 would be handy because the blu ray would be handy too.
