And I find out that my PS3 is on Version 3.66, the serial number is CECH 30088. I want to downgrade it or if there is any way to back-up my game and play downloaded game with the OFW that came with the console. I want to play downloaded game and back up my game to the console and in doing so I don't want to void my warranty, is there a way for such? Or if there is going to be any new firmware to mod the 3.66 or above in the near future. I heard that within the next 20/25 days there will be something for these versions higher than 3.55. I want to know if it is true. Thanks in advance.
Your best bet would be to sell the 3000 series PS3, since it is unhackable and not downgradable. Then buy a ps3 on 3.55 or lower. Or at least one that is downgradable. But downgrading requires opening the console. And will void any warranty.
