ARRGGGHH Dammit!! Downgrade help required
ARRGGGHH Dammit!! Downgrade help required –
After my kid bought Smurfs 3D and watched it in my PS3 it updated me from 3.55 to 3.70
I have an old PS3Break V1.2 and recent read it can be used to "downgrade firmware 3.42/3.50 or above to firmware 3.41 with PS3break
Does anyone know if 3.42/3.50 or above is true and if it includes 3.70?
sorry, I don't think you can. I think 3.60+ employed a new method. I think you'll need an E3 flasher or progskeet but wait for somebody that knows more about it
Yup, you will need one of the hardware flasher BahumatLord recommended. Or, if you can find someone who does downgrades, that is always another option.
I thought that might be the answer but worth asking the question anyway.
If you go the downgrade route I like the teensy++ 2.0 its way cheaper than progskeet or e3 flasher. Make sure your ps3 is nor not nand and buy the voltage regulator 3.3v for the teensy. If you have nand you need a more expensive flasher like progskeet.
You should upgrade to the latest firmware, downgrades are the same either way and you can atleast use psn until you get a chip. I personally am glad I have ofw and cfw ps3's as psn is alot better than people make it seem.
Nice insight pip313, thanks for the comments.
Correct me if im wring the teensy++ 2.0 requries soldering? I really dont want to solder, im just not confifent enough to do it. PLus i just want to downgrade and thats it, permaently soldering the teensy isnt very appealing. I know about the E3 flasher solderless but its a lot of $$ compared to a teensy. I know im being picky about it.
If that is the case, you might want to look into having someone perform the downgrade procedure for you.
My suggestion would be to start a WTB: I Need PS3 Downgrade Only (NO HARDWARE) thread in the Buy Sell Trade section of our site, and see if there are any members in your area who offer that kind of service.
