Do I need to install the regular 3.41 firmware over the modified firmware after the downgrade? If so, can I do it via 'System Update'?
Just got my e3 and wanted to downgrade from 3.50 to 3.41 - I dragged the e3downgrade12.03.bin into the e3upgrader part of the drive and then put it into the right most port of my ps3 - the one next to the disc drive. I then turn the power off and hit the power on and then the eject. The ps3 starts and the e3 flashes red, but does not turn blue.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here guys....anyone able to help me?
dont downgrade you will loose blu ray playback
What if I use the BD fix on the E3 website, will I still loose my blu ray playback? Does this effect Blu ray movies only or will games no longer load?
only in bd movies .
I don't mind if my PS3 will not play BR movies, as standalone players are cheap now and it means I wont burn out the drive on my PS3 - I'm pleased to hear that games still work though!
thanks Tcraw77813 give me this post's link ,i know How to use a E3 card reader to downgrade PS3 from V3.5 V3.42 to V3.41
my firmware is 2.76 on my ps3 (its a second ps3 that I have that I never updated) do I have to update to 3.41 before I can remove the factory/service mode? I have done the jailbreak and the E3 stick turned blue as it said it would and I then used a fat 32 formatted stick with the file stated to remove the service mode but my console is not turning off after 10 seconds as all tutorials I find say it will the formatted stick I have been using however is a microSD memory card in a memory card reader pen drive is this the problem or because I am not running 3.41 firmware?
