PS3 downgrade debacle
SO i was the unlucky 2ond owner of a used PS3 which came from "GameSuck" with OFW 3.56 on it... imagine my disappointment to learn those a-holes over at $ony saw fit to patch the 3.55 so no more cfw can be installed without the use of the overly expensive e3 flasher or other hardware flashers.... WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OL' DAYS???? you know back in the day when we had the PSP on CFW, i even went so far as to make me a "Pandora Battery" with the "Magic Memory stick" to downgrade any psp fat or slim.... it's too bad there isn't a battery we could program in the PS3 to downgrade any OFW and auto install any CFW.... damn i miss the old days when hacking was simple and breasts were real....
EDIT:: zoiks! it was really late when i posted , i completely spaced my question! i had been up all night trying to find a way to downgrade my ps3 so i could get the other OS feature back, i wanted to run linux on the ps3 and crunch numbers for primes, question is: is there an exploit to use a CFW PSP to downgrade a ps3?
So what is the point of this post other then to complain about having to pay for a hardware flasher to play pirated games. You dont ask a single question. And you even more erroneously talk about the "old days" of hacking as it during the "old days" the PSP was even out.

in my research and toils to find a downgrade for 3.56 i found an interesting snippet, the PS3 can not flash firmware lower then what is already installed. But is there a way to say take the 3.55 OFW and rename it to 3.57 OFW then take kmeaw 3.55 and rename it to 3.58 ??? this way you can upgrade to downgrade. .... i don't know how this would work or if it would be possible... thoughts?
