i just want to tested my ipod 1g as a downgrader on my 3.41 ps3 slim..
after my ps3 on factory services mode, is it ok if i skip the fw downgrading step and just go to the Lv2diag.self (file 2) step so my ps3 back to retail mode?
will this process delete my ps3 data (game, saves, etc) or even disabling my blu-ray laser?
^^^ AFAIK your HDD only gets wiped downgrading, but YES using 2nd .elf file will bring you out of service mode.
The bluray issue is uncertain, nobody knows just yet! Either way, what's done is done. Shoulda backed up Dev_Flash2 + 3 beforehand, aswell as your HDD if it's important!
ok, i'll back up everything bfore it.. thks man..

When I'll release PS3Payload Downloader I'll start working on RockBox-PSGroove Installer 3.0.
It'll include a completly new design, a new way for getting the payloads from and so on..
Thanks for the work DanyL.
I look forward to 3.0!
I need help from you guys.
I can't get my 40Gb fat PS3 to boot into factory service mode.
I have 3.50 FW and is using an ipod 4G photo.
I put the rockbox.ipod in root\PSGrade folder and clicked on it and rebooted into the regular rockbox software, then I did the power-eject method. The
PS3 boots into XMB without the factory service mode banner at the bottom. What am I doing wrong?
Could it be that I'm sharing my ipod for jailbraking with payloads?
Help is really appreciated.
^^^ Did ya try this version? - Via DanyL's page.
The older version wouldn't work on 3.50, only 3.41 or lower..
Speaking of which, any idea if you guys got around the JB block on 3.42 and 3.50 with the 2nd version..? Although I presume it woulda been front page news..
Yes, I did use that file but still nothing. It doesnt turn off after 6 secs, but instead, it boots to the regular XMB menu. Could it be because I have the IPL loader installed and not just rockbox itself? How do you uninstall IPL loader?
For anyone that wants 3.55 spoofing just to prevent the update look here for some builds
