Confused on Downgrade –
First off sorry if this has been answered and I wasn't able to find it.
I was on CFW 3.55 Ran the QA toggle did the key combination and see the three options below network settings, then went into service mode and did the rebug 4.30.1. A couple weeks have passed and i got the idea to upgrade my HD. After buying MLB 13 it needed to be stored on the internal plus adds another 10 gigs i realized this is just gonna add up fast. Long story short i have read up and ive backed up, manually transferred my trophies. What im confused about is the procedure from here I have read so many posts and comments im confused as crap now.
I read some say I just go back to 3.55 rex then back to 4.30.1 after the restore.
I read other posts that say use the 999 downgrader, then ofw 3.55 then back to 4.30.1
then the release from rebug says
From XMB REBUG 4.21.x AND HIGHER can be uninstalled with the same or higher firmware version OFW/CFW/MFW or with REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION on a QA enabled PS3 or with the ’999′ DOWNGRADER if QA was NOT enabled.
But do i downgrade, then restore my backup? Downgrade during the restore?
For me in my situation what procedure should i follow. What is the safest? Right now I have the external backup drive attached and have performed backup with backup utility.
Thanks in Advance.
Since you're QA Flagged just install Rebug 3.55.4 REX, swap the hdd's, when you start it up again it will ask for an update file so just put the usb in with 3.55.4 on it, now once that is installed update to 4.30.1
So far so good. Ran the update to 3.55 rex, then put the new drive in, it formatted and then re-ran the 3.55 rex, Then went to recovery and updated to 4.30.1, and now its restoring the backup. took 13+ hours to backup it up and it says its gonna be 4 hours to restore it. but we'll see.
Thanks again Shaitan
