Solderless method to install CFW?

Post by Blacklyte » Sun Aug 30, 2015 3:24 pm

So far all of the methods I see to install CFW or jailbreak a PS3 running 4.75 OFW require you to solder something to the board or buy a 100 dollar flasher for it.

There have been a few that allow me to install CFW on my PS3 with only a USB stick that I load files onto, but I don't know how legit that is.

Can someone tell me if there is a way to do it? I am new to the scene and basically turn my PS3 into a BA multimedia device were I can run backups of my games and play homebrew and what not.

Basically, to answer your question, the method you're talking about isn't CFW. The only way is to solder and downgrade and use a flasher. My suggestion would be to find someone that knows how to do it and have them do it for you. It's not too epensive. Usually $50-$75 and well worth it.
