Rock Bamd / Guitar Hero DLC on FW 3.41
Haven't tried this yet but if it works, THANK YOU!
as far as I can tell (at least for titles I tried) this only works on fat models, or at least it didn't work for me. Netflix, all PS1 titles, and PSN titles did not work. The only ones that worked were demo games where the purchase just unlocks the title (like Marvel vs Capcom 2).
edit: Oh, this method is possibly slightly different, going to read it over again before passing judgement
edit2: Hey that's kind of a sweet idea. So if you put a 3.50 drive into a 3.41 system it will just ask for 3.41 firmware? You sir are brilliant. Going to try this now.
edit: You should change the title if this works for me, because this would be more than just Rock Band DLC, this would be ALL PSN content on all models working in 3.41.
****, I think I just bricked my PS3 doing this.
I attached a dongle and attempted to enter downgrade mode once I had done the first swap but completely forgot that the drive that I had swapped had not yet been ****ing formatted to PS3, it was a FAT32 drive.
My PS3 now just turns on and no video signal is sent. Any ideas? Please help
edit: fixed it

Does it need to be a retail 3.41 and not the modified one? I tried the modified 3.41 and it told me the data was corrupt
edit: loaded with retail 3.41. Unfortunately all PSN content is still not usable by me on my slim. (All PS1 games/Braid/others). The only things that work are games where they were demos first.
edit2: That's not to say it won't work for GH/Rock Band stuff, but it did not work for my PSN games content.

Didn't work for me, it says "A content package is damaged or has changed. As a result, the game has restarted. You will need to re-download any damaged content." Maybe you have to play it once first?
Also, I HAD to adjust time and network and such which you you said wasn't needed, it didn't ask me to put in 3.41.

I think you may have done it wrong, because I can at least confirm that my drive was not formatted/all that happened was the system asked me for 3.41

When you have swapped your HDD for the second (last) time, do you start in JB mode?
Maybe that's what I did wrong.
You wanted to downgrade on the second hard drive, and as soon as you exit factory service mode and the system shuts itself off, you want to unplug it and throw in your first drive. Then you just want to power it on normally.
Nevermind, DNS trick don't work anymore.
