i went from kmeaw cfw to service mode straight to 3.41. thats all.
i may have done it wrong but my backup mgrs work fine and everything. it says 3.41 after i downgraded.
i spoofed to 3.55. again, it is important to backup your devflash3. drl1 specifically. cuz if you have a 256nand you WILL lose bluray function. i wonder if i could upgrade to 3.55 now or have i screwed myself? if not i could always downgrade again i guess. just thought i would post personal exsperience.

3.41 OFW or 3.41 (3.5_6)?
honestly , i dont know. it came in a rar pack. file1 and 2 selfs and a pup. the pup came up as 3.41 from system settings b4 i spoofed but it is indeed working fine.
It's probably the modded 3.41 (3.5_6) one then. If you want to upgrade to 3.55, you'll have to downgrade first. If a version higher then 3.5_6 comes out, you'll be able to upgrade to that.
Hey i'm on 3.41 with a dongle but i am wondering. Why would someone want to downgrade from 3.55? I hear that kmeaw firmware works just as good as 3.41JB...
Just in case they want to go back to the way things were. I really don't know why, but some people just think that it's somewhat unstable still. I say, it can only get better :)
im new to this but i see nothing on firmware *****.ive read the post you stated and nothing.
Obviously you haven't, but I'll spell it out for you anyway.
Tried and true:
Downgrade to something lower then 3.41 but greater then or equal to the firmware that came with your PS3 (3.40, 3.20, 3.15, etc) with the original lv2diag.self files in the DGF.rar files. Once on that firmware, you can upgrade to whatever firmware you wish.
Untested, but should work:
Downgrade to 3.41 OFW with the lv2diag.self in the DGF.rar package and bring yourself out with the 2nd lv2diag.self file in either your original 3.55 downgrade or the DGF.rar files (same lv2diag.self file for both downgrades, so it doesn't matter). From here you should be able to upgrade.
Works well, I've done it myself. You can do it with the 3.50 also.

Ok Guys hopefully someone can help. I'm got s Slim that came pre installed with 3.41 from the store. sense then I've upgraded to 3.55 then downgraded to 3.41 using the files in this thread. Which went well
Now when i tried to install the Hermes CFW i got data corrupt, i've read this is because my system was spoofed to3.56 which i was not really made aware of when i downgraded. So what i tried was using the files in the DGF Package, which is apost to help fix this, Now All I get is a Flashing Green Light, So i got my Ps3 out of Service Mode, And my system wont boot to the xmb and is now Asking for a System update of3.56 or later which isn't out yet.yay Any Ideas. Its 4am here so excess all the typos
edit: NVM Fixed it
Just re-installed the spoofed3.56 looks like I'm Stuck on 3.41 though Any Ideas the error is 8002F169 My system came preloaded with 3.41
edit again: I re-downloaded the dfg package formatted the usb stick, this time it installed Its completely fixed. by the way I've learned my lesson. i'm never downgrading again.
