I'm a jailbreak noob. I'm still deciding on which to buy. Currently, I am leaning towards X3Max and P3Go due to the large flash memory and microSD expandability. But I have been reading a lot from this site and a few others.
Currently, I have a fat NTSC PS3 60GB at firmware 3.5 which I recently upgraded to 500GB. To recap on previous posts, if I downgrade, I will lose the ability to use the Blu-Ray movie function of the device. But BD games and DVD will still function, correct? But if I backup the dev_flash3 file, I would be able to put that back into the system and have BD function back, correct?
So with firmware 3.55 available now, are you guys able to play on the PSN network? Do you need to flash the jailbreak with 3.55 to work on PSN?
Thanks, Zylor, for your tutorial. Made things so much clearer for me.
Mate first of all you and every other people that follow this tutorial don't need to thank me for this.. i made it to the community!

(follow that thread because in a couple of days or even hours there will be a fix for that)
In another topic and i'm not shouting/screaming at you but to warn people:THERE IS NO JAILBREAK YET TO 3.50 NOR 3.55 and the downgrade only works for 3.50 to downgrade to earlier versions lower then 3.50
Added info about the downgrade to the first post:
- Only works for 3.50 and lower!!!
- There is no downgrade and there is no jailbrake to 3.55 yet!!!
Got it. So even with downgrading to 3.41, you can only play the backups in the HD for single mode gaming only. So there is no PSN capability with any jailbreak. Is this correct?

I have a little problem. Followed the steps, but now my ps3 won't even start up.
Here's what I did:
1. Update P3Go,
2. Inserted downgrade.bin,
3. Put PS3 in service mode,
4. Plugged in USB with required files,
AND now when I press power, it starts up, nothing shows on screen, and shuts down.
Anyone know what to do? =[
so just to confirm the downgrade will format ur HDD right?? unless u make a back up right?
i put the downgrader on a usb stick when i was updating the ps3, it then left my ps3 in factory settings and refused to work.
i then tried reinstalling 3.41 which is what it was on anyway ( i presumed the upgrade was an update of the ps3go firmware).
now all i get is a red screen of death
is there any way out of this ?
i have tried holding the power button down trick to go into safe mode, all that happens is it tries updating but does nothing and 2 seconds later it comes back with the warning screen.
Follow the tutorial from the step: PUT THE LV2DIAG.SELF IN THE CLEAN PEN!

it was the dreaded red sign which comes up when your ps3 is buggered

i was VERY annoyed
However i have managed to fix it, NOT using the method some managed to recover from which was to hold the power button till the ps3 powers on and powers off again then immediately hold the power button again until it makes 2 beeps together after a first beep.
that is meant to force the ps3 into safe mode
this did not work.
i managed to get it working by doing this update again, as in usb stick with the modified 3.41 and the lv2diag in port 2 it made the screen blue for 2 minutes then the ps3 powered off then i followed the update instructions and put file 2 on usb stick after wiping the 3.41 and file 1 lvdiag. let it boot again in port 2 then it reset in the safe mode
i lost the game saves and also lost all the films i had but i have my ps3 back thank god.
i still have another ps3 downstairs but i saved the upstairs one for the jailbreak and as yet havent managed to get it working
i will maybe try again another day, i have COD black ops to play now while relaxing after 3 hours of stress.
maybe this will cure other peoples red screens of death? previously there was very little which could be done, maybe this actually recovers peoples damaged ps3's?
if so i may trawl ebay for people selling theirs off cheap.
