Also do i need to by one of these e flasher chips or can it be done just with software? I dont want to open my ps3 and i only bought the jailbreak as they said it was a plug and play device. Didnt realise it would be this difficult.
To downgrade from OFW 4.10, you will need to use a flasher and open your ps3 to install it.
There is no USB solution to downgrade any ps3 on a firmware higher than 3.55. Your jailbreak dongle would be plug and play if you were on 3.55.
So sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the only way to downgrade is to buy a flasher and take your ps3 apart.
The e3 flasher will only work on nor chip models.
Progskeet will work on both nor and nand.
