I used to use the AmazeBbreak one from http://www.amazebreak.cc/
Got it for like $7. But once I updated to modded firmware 3.55, I don't need to use any dongle.

I was using that exact same combo with 3.41 but then there were sooo many jailbreak options hitting the scene...:conf: i stopped all together waiting for the "best " one to surface. Way too many different options to choose from...I'll probably keep waiting.

And Tinz, good for you. Stick with it, i know its tough. I didnt chime in on the fitness thread, but i dropped 35lbs last year by diet and exercise. Its this time of night especially that I think about snacking. I would recommend not getting on a scale for at least a month though. Good luck!

ive done it several ways and depends how technical you are , or comfortable you are with doing this sort of stuff. also you will lose PSN we get it back from time to time but cant count on it.

the easiest way is upgrade to ofw (from online source) 3.55 then in recovery mode you will upgrade to cfw kmeaw 3.55. <-- easiest for general use wont miss to much. also be aware with the 3.55 you lose linux. then just throw on a backup manager (i use multiman & rogero) and you are done there are also emulators you can use GB,sega,fba,snes
.
dongles are really no longer required , they used to be if you wanted to keep linux and run on 3.41 but with the cfw that is out there no need anymore. they still serve a purpose as you can use them to go into service mode or re-marry the bd drive. i stopeed using this method just because some games needed mods to work on it. i used psgroove and before that a ti84 to jailbreak them

the best path i think would be the mfw/cfw rebug 3.55 kmeaw based it lets you do a little more with the developer psn. I was on it for a bit but changed back to regular kmeaw



it very simple just need a flash drive.

you can go to psx-scene for some tutorials and most of the software.

Thanks for the links, advice and over all inspiration everyone! :D


Just put on the 3.55 > 3.55 CFW. Kinda jumped the gun on this thread. I'm loving the kmeaw cfw!


and Castor, I loved Hobo w/ shotgun. Thanks again.

youll need cfw to do either netflix is working if you use rebug 3.55

yea that will work,or get an external hdd and leave them on there. now if you are upgrading to 3.55 means you were on 3.41 and that means if you were playing anything newer you had to mod your eboot. that modded eboot will not work on 3.55

For example, I'm playing the new Mortal Kombat right now :multi_co:
