Thanks for bridging the gaps in my knowledge-base. So I can now link why QA flagging and downgrading was needed. Thanks a lot.

If you could answer one more question about Linux I would be happy. (srry, one question too many). Only if I want to make my PS3 dual boot, do I need to install asbetos OR red ribbon (from deank's guide) anyway?
oh sorry I missed the fact that you already have the NORBIN file, but yes if you have that file and you made it properly using the flash dump from multiman and the key you dumped with the eEID_RKDumper tool then all you need to do is flash the NORBIN file (that is of course if you have a NOR console)
I'm not quite sure what you mean with your last question, but if you simply want to dual boot linux using something like petitboot then any PS3 compatible linux distro should work fine, I think I would recommend red ribbon though, as that seems to be a quite popular choice on the PS3.
Disclaimer: I just want to remind you that since you are flashing the PS3 memory there is a small (very small but still present) chance that you might brick the console. So keep that in mind
Happy to report this worked for me as well (cechp01 NOR). I did run into a couple random things along the way though(like the qa flag links from rebug not working, a couple filenames not being mentioned, etc)...nothing that couldn't be overcome with a little reading obviously, but made me nervous nonetheless. For whatever reason(possibly I got a bad download?) Itskamelīs 3.55 would not install for me...system wouldn't even recognize it was there. But Rogero 3.55 installed fine and is running...so probably just got a bad download on the other. Still, another thing that made my stomach turn for a minute lol. Overall, I would say this is a great guide, and pretty damn easy to follow, so just wanted to express my gratitude for you taking the time to write it. Thanks!! :dance:
