I am looking into getting a PS3 for jailbreaking because I'm tired of being stuck with a PS2 and I have no idea what ps3 I should get. I have looked at comparison and compatibility charts but they just confused me What PS3s can I get that would be compatible with a jailbreak, and have backwards compatibility with both PS1 and PS2 games, even if it must be jailbroken to get it. Please be specific about them because I might just ask it for christmas and I am going to need the model number. Thanks.

To get the whole kit and caboodle: you'll need a CECHA (xx), CECHBxx, CECHCxx, or CECHExx model. They're all the old-style "fat" PS3s, and were discontinued October 2007.
To just get a downgradable/jailbreakable PS3: the last model that MAY be exploitable is CECH-25xx (all mentioned before, plus any CECH-20xx and CECH-21xx). It won't have OtherOS, but it can be patched back in. Those models were discontinued March 2011, with the last batch of exploitable devices made in December 2010.
NOTE: PS3s are not my strong suit, take this advice with a hefty grain of salt.

He is basically saying the big models. The ones that have a gloss finish and are big.

Ok, I think I get an idea. I'll see if I can find any. And what did you say was the model number for the most recent PS3 that was released that can be jailbroken? Is it a PS3 slim?
