  • Winhau

    Okay so my question is this:
    Im only jailbreaking because of PS1&GameBoy&DS emulators. So yeah, my PS3 is 3.55, just wondering if I can jailbreak my PS3, then download those emulators and the ROMs, and still be able to play online? Games like Killzone3, Dragon Ball Raging Blast 2 or LBP2. I own the real copies of each of my games, Im not gonna play any pirated games online or anything, Im just thinking of the jailbreak because of the emulators.
    Thanks in advance!

  • djv88

    Hey does anyone know if the jailbreak will work for an original 20GB PS3? I don’t want to brick my console with this so I was just wondering…also I have upgraded to a 120GB hard drive if that makes any difference..

  • Alex450

    @Dylon Mackintosh:

    Stop being lazy and just go read the previous replies man.. This has been answered before..If you’re already on 3.55 don’t go on recovery mode.. simply do it from the PS3 menu..Update via storage media

  • Dillon Mackintosh

    Yo I Have The Same Problem With many Other People When It Says DATA is Corrupted What Does That Mean Please Give Me A Message When You See this, I really Need help -.-

  • Milad

    I did everything as asked, even unzipped it to the PS3/UPDATE/ (USB), but in the recovery mode, after checking it says “the data is corrupted”. Wat am I suppose 2 do now??

    • David

      Same :(

  • carsten

    Im from denmark Iam want to use this jailbreak, but every time I want to update with file PS3UPDAT.PUP i says “broke” on danish.
    Is this file only for USA uses ??



  • Alex450

    Decap, so I’ve tested it myself and you can ”unjailbreak” your PS3 by re-installing the original PS firmware… You can’t do it the same way you install the Jailbreak though; you have to do it the way they originally tell you to do it in here.. By going on restore mode…Hope this helps

  • Andrew

    how stupid are you? unzip it first

  • Davinder Singh

    I followed your instructions but whenever I hit the select and start button together to update the it looks for data on USB and then says corrupted data. Please help

    • Davinder Singh

      And file size is only 68.9KB. And it keep saying corrupted data.

  • Decap

    Hi, I am also curious about whether the jailbreak is reversible and if it is possible to play on PSN with (or without) original games without being banned?


    • Alex450

      Decap: I’ve surfed the web a bit for the answer and the most decent answer I could find involved downloading the original update from your computer and then installing it the same way you did the jailbreak.. Haven’t tried it yet

  • Ollie

    it keeps saying that my data is corrupted, help?

    • Alex450

      Hey Ollie, don’t put the PS3 in recovery mode like they said to do up there; instead do it the way other people mentionned; by going to the update menu in the ps3 menu and just selecting ”update from a storage media device”.. I hope this helps

  • Brad

    Im wondering the same thing as Alex450. I’d like to use this but I play call of duty online alot with an actual purchased copy (not a back-up) will i still be able to go online with my call of duty after I install this?

  • Alex450

    Hey, so it works..just don’t do it through the original 15 steps (putting the ps3 in recovery mode). Do it the way a couple of guys in here have done it.. But anyway.. I have a couple of questions :

    -how do I uninstall the jailbreak? (Just in case shit hits the fan)

    -Is it ok to go online with the jailbreak installed?? I mean, not to play online with a backed up game (whenever that is possible).. but to actually play with a game that I have the original disc already or somethin’??

  • Irvin

    Same here i just need the test package and can’t seem to find it anybody has it??? and the people that are having problems installing the custom 3.55jb you do it though the ps3 xmb go to Settings then System Update then Update via Storage Media and then your ps3 will shut off i think and you will here a beep you never heard and its going to beep like 8 15 times and your done once it turns of turn it on manually not through the ps3 control hope that helps

  • corrimaca

    Hey guys… could I copy my games to my HD using this? tx

  • josh

    HELP… i updated it and did everything correctly but the test isnt in the install package files!

  • russel

    Same problem as the first 2 guys said ” system eror”

  • mateo

    hello everyone my ps3 is 3.55 version,when i tried to do this process,playstation closing after than step 7,i didnt see any instructions for be in the recovery menu.someone could explain it better?

    Thanks in advance

  • Qubix

    Ok this is not the way to do it, so you put the PS3UPDAT file intp PS3/UPDATE and put the usb into your ps3. Then go over to System Update and choose Update from storage media, then accept and turn your ps3 off, you might here like 7 8 beeps but dw, after this you need to install the package files which i cant find, because the link you download doesnt come with em… im stuck now… can sum1 give me a link please, any help would be aprreciated

    • luke marrington

      but the nothing comes up in the games folder if i do that. not even the game in the disc drive

  • Harris Ahmad

    when i try to jailbreak it says corrupt data do u know y and how i can fix this yes I did PS3 UPDATE and then copied the file from the jailbreak file instructed to download as above

    • luke marrington
