Am I F'ed? If not, which Tut should I be looking at?
EDIT: The tweet from the Progskeet guys said 4.0 is still downgradable, but the PS3 Scene Status says only if it's in 3.7 OFW range. So I am befuddled
Depends when the console was made.
Check the date code on the bottom sticker. If it is 0C or 0D, it is downgradeable. If it's 1B, it isn't downgradeable. If it's 1A, some are downgradeable and some aren't.
