Hope this will be ported to psgroove soon
From what I read, You take the Lv2Diag.self (File 2) and put it on root of flash drive. Power on your console with flash drive inserted. After 10 seconds it will power off. Then turn on your console again with no USB inserted and you will be out of factory service mode and back in retail mode with your chosen firmware version installed.
Hopefully I'll have my review sample and I'm putting together a guide that will be included in my review.
*EDIT* Just saw responses about the File 2 also
The FILE1 was about 365.5kb in size, and the FILE2 was about 201.4kb in size.Quote:
Step 1 - Insert PS Jailbreak device that has been reprogrammed as PS Downgrade into your console
Step 2 - Turn on console using same boot method as PS Jailbreak - Press Power then immediately press eject. You will see your console turn with PS Jailbreak lit up with red/green light followed by green only, Then it will turn off.
Step 3 - Turn on console to make sure you are in factory service mode. You will see a huge red box on the screen saying Factory Service Mode, once confirmed please turn off console and remove PS Downgrade Dongle
Step 4 - Program any blank usb with 2 files , A) modified 3.41 pup B) Lv2Diag.self (file 1) These must be the only files on the usb key and must be placed in the main directory of the flash drive.
Step 5 - Insert this new Flash drive into the right USB PORT of your console ( It must be placed in the outermost right port) and turn the console on. You will see black screen but you will see flashing lights on the console (yellow) and on your USB key
Step 6 - Wait 3 minutes for the system to install the old FW, towards the end the power button on the console will start flashing green and then your console will power off.
Step 7 - Remove the usb key and turn on the console , you will still be in factory service mode. Please verify you have downgraded successfully to version 3.41
Step 8 (Optional) - If you wish to downgrade to any older firmware you can not follow step 4,5,6 using any regular firmware PUP. (You do not need to use modified custom firmware now that you are on 3.41)
Step 9 - Insert flash drive back into PC , remove the PUP and Lv2Diag.self and install only LV2Diag.self (file 2) on the USB Flash Drive
Step 10 - Power on your console, after 10 seconds it will power off
Step 11 - Turn on your console with no USB inserted and you will be out of factory service mode into retail mode with your chosen firmware version installed.
Jailbreak your console and enjoy playing homebrew. :)
When you trying FILE2 does the system power-off after 10 seconds?
I've read that already , been there, done that, it doesn't power off my PS3 here...
Remember, the USB with lv2diag.self need to be in the rightmost usb port.
Remove all other stuff from USB too for good measure.
So now all we have to do is have this ported from psgroove so I can use my droid to downgrade, instead of paying $100! Hope the downgrade finally becomes opensource at some point.
