dude you cannot downgrade your PS3 via Software you will need hardway method like E3 Flasher or Progskeet .
ok thanks bu t know that im trying to udate it to 4.46 from 4.25 it pops up the same message any idea what to do?
try to download 4.46 and update it via pen drive .
thats what i do and noth happens :S it pops the msg
do you want me to upload a video ?
to show you whats going on so you can help me
well there are many possibilities i think which are :
1-your pup file is corrupted somehow during the downloading/updating
2-your BR board is a problem maybe
3-or it could be the hard drive is corrupted not sure
or update it via Recovery Mode .
Ok.... Stupid question time....
When your "Install" fails at "61%". What are you trying to actually install in the first place? OFW4.46 or some kind of CFW4.46?
So to summarize you are on OFW4.25, and you may or may not have a CECH-25xx (Slim), and you "read" about this Three Musketeers Patch that can allow those unfortunate users who can NOT downgrade prior to OFW3.56 but who may be able to install CFW up to, OFW4.30. Am I right?
Well I got some bad News for you. This does NOT exempt you from having to invest in an E3 NOR Flasher.
The Keyword that you've seemed to missed was "Patch". As in a Firmware Patch. Its not exactly the same Patch that would be used normally to downgrade a PS3 back to OFW3.55. But it is a Patch that must be done so you can actually run the update. As, as you have already seen, just running the plain Update DOES NOT WORK!
Again assuming that there is a 25xx at the heart of this you really need to do more Homework first. Like checking the DATECODE on the bottom of your PS3. It'll be written in a tiny White Box in Hex anything before "1A" (e.g. Jan/Feb/Mar - 2011) should be.... ~ok~ (i.e. it has the older metldr & lvl0 Keys needed to run CFW) anything past this "1B" (e.g. Apr/May/Jun - 2011), might still have a tiny tiny chance.
ANYTHING PAST THAT AND I'D SAY ITS NOT WORTH IT!
Again I don't care if you decide to chuck your "Toys" out of the Pram or not!
CECH 30xx (Slim), and the CECH 40xx (Super Slim) ARE NEITHER DOWNGRADABLE OR ABLE TO RUN CFW!
As they are definitely using newer (and, unknown!) metldr & lvl0 Keys. And if your of the belief that finding such Keys is simple. Then might I suggest you give it a shot yourself?
