By kerplunk83 on Mar 4, 2017: #1 Hi there. I NEED HELP!!! Desperately, i've wasted 8 hours today to find a way of playing iso backups on my ps3, either usb hdd or internal hdd. Why?? Because i've heard that things changed a lot in the ps3 scene and it's now possible to play backups on a superslim ps3 500gb. Even the very last one (who came with lego lord of the ring). Buying that model of the ps3 is one of my biggest mistake in life. I never saw a console so incredibly and ridiculously hard to softmod/mod/break/jailbreak whatever you call it. Buying an ODE is out of question since i will not pay anymore a single dime for it and i paid for over 20 games on it so i think i paid my dues over sony and others. Can someone answer those questions????!! You can't jailbreak/mod whatever a 4k superslim ps3 thru usb drive or other non-downgrable model, right? even in 2017 at this very moment? Because of sony hardware BS limitation nor backups protections, right? So it point me the this second question, websites that claim you can are a hoax, right? If it is, there is absolutely no way of jailbreaking it, like 100% sure? Third question, DO the injection method really work? I mean with TrueAncestor BACKUP Retailer v2.10 by example or any other version of it or similar programs? Fourth question and some will laugh here i'm pretty sure but anyway, can i play with the injection method sonic 4 episode 1 and 2 backups? Fifth question, If there's a way, will i lose my current games or saves? Final question, WHY do forums keep hoaxed threads and likes it??? My english can either be bad or very bad, sorry, but anyway, is there any other 100% successful way of playing backups (no disc backup, only usb/ext usb drive/internal hdd) on that crappy female dog console that i have. If you didnt understood me, i have the very last ps3 model released, CECH-43xxC, as per http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/SKU_Models. AFAIK last time i played games (internal or discs) with was in september or october 2016 and was always up to date because i was subscribing psn+ for that stupid 2/3/4 free full version games for 60$ a year. I repeat again, i've wasted more than 8 hours today, on multiple forums/thread/watch bs hoax video on youtube and there's plenty of it. A LOT. Please help me!!! AND PLEASE DONT TELL ME THAT I DIDNT READ THREADS OR FORUMS OR I DIDNT GOOGLED IT. I did. I did too much of it to be honest. My head will break into pieces.
