There are currently several ways to enable homebrew on a console.
- You require Firmware 3.55 or below, if you have higher than this, than you will need to look at Downgrading Firmware
- You cannot currently run homebrew on some of the later slim models, and none of the new CECH-30xx models.
While outdated, this original jailbreak can still be used to jailbreak your console.
This is not a fully modified Firmware. It is simply a patch that allows you to run code.
It installs like any other CFW etc.
Peek & Poke (aka flukes1 & netkas)
Using an AVR/PIC or other active USB device with running specific code to exploit the USB descriptor (only works on 3.41 and older).
Just install Linux and run apps on it.
Since 1.60 up until 3.20: official supported as OtherOS.
Since firmware 3.21 up until 3.55: no longer official supported, but made possible with modified firmwares, see OtherOS++ and AsbestOS (http://marcansoft.com/blog/2010/10/asbestos-running-linux-as-gameos/).
Jailbreaking: Right now, there are no exploits for browser. It's pretty basic one too, kind of IE6 for PS3, even mobile pages sometimes won't be shown correctly (Example: http://m.deviantart.com)
