Is there a way of downgrading the version to 3.41
Is there a way of downgrading the version to 3.41 –
Is there a way of downgrading the version to 3.41?
for example formatting the harddrive and reinstalling the ps3 software, like when you fit a new harddrive
to put it simple, no. use the search function...
There may potentially be a way to downgrade firmware if you're jailbroken already, but no way to do it if you're already past 3.41
Actually, since you have 2 nand's for firmwares, and when one is in use, the other one gets the new version, if you've only upgraded once since 3.41 or earlier, rather than both 3.42 and 3.50, it might be possible to corrupt the 3.42/3.50 NAND and bump you back to 3.41 (assuming that's what you had and not 3.40 or some other version). Don't ask me how you'd go about doing that though - my only idea, which I know is a horrible one, is to physically damage one of the chips, and that's a 50/50 chance of getting the right one, assuming it would work at all.
i believe there r dudes out there working on software for downgrading firmware
im also hoping for the best
This may be a dumb question, but I'll ask it anyway...
Is there a way of editting a 3.41 firmware 'binary' and just change the version number to something like 9.99? Then you can just use the standard firmware update process to overwrite any 3.41+ version with this one, by fooling it into thinking it is the latest version. Is this possible?
No, ideas that simple have already been well and truely shot down in flames.

My philosophy is, if you're not a developer and you have a simple idea on how to bypass/enable upgrades, chances are it's already been thought of /shot down weeks ago.
Stuff like this worked on the PSP for a short (very short) while, but the PS3 is far more complex a machine.
