PS3 Jailbreak 4.81 OFW to CFW Tutorial [Updated 17/01/2017]

Ps3 Jailbreak Basics

When you do a PS3 jailbreak, it can unlock its potential to enable you to run unofficial applications on your console, although there are a few things to note:

  • If you physically modify your console, it can void the warranty. The same happens if you soft-mod it, but if a soft-mod is performed it can easily be reversed and it will be unknown whether it was jailbroken or not (making it impossible to void the warranty).
  • Once its jailbroken, you will have the capability to run homebrew applications. You can also copy the game data from disk to your internal (or external) HDD. Which then you can run games without a disc (WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING THIS FOR PIRATING PURPOSES)
