PS3 downgrade help! –
I am in the market to buy a 160gb or 120gb slim ps3! I was wondering, I know all 120gb models are downgradable, but they have the larger RSX processor, more prone to YLOD. I was wondering, is there a chance of bricking my ps3 if I downgrade? Does the chance increase with the 25xxx series? Can you undo a brick? I am getting it done by a professional so I would like to know if I should be safe? Also, as long as the datecode is downgradable, should I be fine on the 2501 series? or is there something else I should look out for? Ex. IF I had a 2501a, and the datecode is 0A, will it be downgradable for sure?
datecode 0A is def downgradable. the professional shouldnt have any issues downgrading your console at all.... IF... he is a professional. 2501a are about 50/50 on downgradability, you should check this chart...Models - PS3 Development Wiki any model after 1A will semibrick when attempting to downgrade to 3.55
