• Downgrade, PS3 Hacks , 04.12.2011

    Im sure there are those of you that updated to the new 4.0 OFW that Sony released last week, you needn’t worry as you will be able to downgrade, which has been confirmed by various people/devs including DiGiTaLAnGeL from digitalangel.it, it should be safe to say that all future firmwares will be downgrade able, but its still always better to have confirmation.

    Source DiGiTaLAnGeL Via Twitter

    BTW, this is the device you should be buying instead of that junk True Blue, with Progskeet, you can downgrade to CFW, for backups and Homebrew, then update to play online and download PSN games, then downgrade back to CFW :)

      So let me get this straight if my ps3 came with a firmware version below 3.55 and then I upgraded to 4.0 I can use progskeet to downgrade back to 3.55/CFW ?

      Yes, you can downgrade a ps3 fat or slim that came with stock 3.55 or below or in some cases a slim 3.56 stock with datacode 1A. You will need something like progskeet, and a either a nand (Fat) or nor (Slim) clip, unless you like soldering all those wires. E3flasher will also do it but I do not trust it.

      That is correct check with your model if flasher would work with
      Your perticular model

      I have a slim ps3 which came with 3.66. currently its on 3.73, if I update to 4.00 and then a jailbreak for 3.73 comes out, will I be able to downgrade???

      [MENTION=209691]Seven777[/MENTION] you will be able to dgrade, i think, but i think the new series ps3 has diffrent hardware, or something, so im not sure about 3.73 cfw on new ps3s. But then again, i dont know so much about ps3 hware or sware.

      We have cobra and TB and else, and no one is willing to give something free to the scene, because of teams like those 2. Why would any dev possibly give something for free? He isnt stupid. :D And also Progskeet. Bah! Dunno what im saying, for the new cfw im just praying.

      GREAT! Just great! Everyone can now downgrade from OFW v.4 being able to play any game they want, to a firmware which you won't be able to play anything released in the last 6 months. Hmmm..........

      Is it just me, or am I missing something here?????

      Any word on a solderless option for progskeet?

      Or at least something that minimizes the amount of wires that go on the ps3 board.

      Progskeet is solderless....
      You buy Progskeet 1.1 along with the adaptor and 360 clip....

      Any device that allows read/write access to the nand/nor can be used to downgrade. If you own a ps3 with nor flash and only have one internal hdd it will be formatted during the downgrade and or upgrade process.


      Now you know and knowing is half the battle. GI JOE!

      ofcourse you can play any game
      you use 3.55 for the games that are compatible
      and you can swap with a 2nd hdd and use 4.0 to play the latest games
      that you bought


      4.0/3.55 downgrade confirmed worked like a charm

      hi i ma new here just got my account and i just got my ps3 not that long ago. i updated my system to 4.00 before i found out that it requires 3.55 to run any downloaded gamess etc. i have no idea what it was before. my question is is there a way to downgrade from 4.00 to 3.55 other than progskeet. i am looking for a way to do it for free if its possible. if there is can someone please tell me how. if not can someone tell me if there will such a possibility at all.as i said i'm not into those things so treat me like a stupid beginner. thanks

      what's the technical reason we can't downgrade >3.55 consoles?
      do they come with a different lv0?
      is it in theory possible to overcome this?

      Otherwise I can't see much point in downgrading...

      there's no free way to downgrade from 4.0 to 3.55
      you need a hardware flasher for it

      unless one of your friends has a flasher and does it for you

      consoles that come with higher firmwares usually have slightly different hardware and the old updates dont have how to run it properly. i remember at last years ccc marcan was showing linux on a ps3 slim with version 3.15 and couldnt get video output to work. after a couple days he released a video showing what it was supposed to be and that the 3.15 update he was using didnt have how to run that gpu revision.

      if my console came with a firmware higher then 3.55 say 4.00 then This would not work?

      If you bought the console brand new at any retail store and it has any firmware higher than 3.56, then no you cant downgrade, but if it was bought second hand, you might be in with a chance.

      I'm a noob when it comes to this stuff, so I was wondering, considering that warning tweet, would it be better to wait for an officially supported clip? Is something like that coming?

      I would wait. I can't say for sure if an officially supported clip is in the works.

      In the meanwhile, I would look into the E3 Flasher.
      Search the forums for threads on E3 Flasher and read about it before making a purchase. Same goes for any of the hardware flashers that way you'll know what you're getting into.

      You'll need an E3 Flasher to downgrade. You can't use any software to downgrade. Search the forums for threads related to E3 Flasher.

      Hmm, I had an idea...
      Couldn't you dump your NOR then replace/ground/solder it with a preflashed NOR on your PS3?
      I know it's (kind of) costy but this (could) deal with the new/unsupported SKU models and I guess that would pi$$ of again Sony...!
      Remember it was just a thought.

      Hello all, I have a question and that is, if a person were to use the Progskeet to downgrade a ps3 fat, what all hardware would be required to purchase? The reason I ask is someone had mentioned to me that something else has to be purchased other than just the progskeet itself.
