It's not impossible to block a hardware downgrade because when you downgrade, it's not just the nands that get affected. This is not a 360, I don't know why people always compare the two systems. One doesn't have a syscon - which is the important thing here. I know what I'm talking about. For the PS3 it's almost impossible for syscon to /not/ get updated.
Edit: Why else do you think we have to keep tabs on if the latest firmware can be downgraded or not?
They point here is that not even Microsoft can downgrade their consoles so trust me their will slways be a way and trust me if Sony wanted to block hardware downgrades then they would have already
