My question is: Will this be a problem? I know the Downgrade steps involve turning the power on and off a lot, but I can just use my controller to turn it on, right???
What model # is your PS3?
If it is a phat model, just turn the power on with the cover off.
If it is a slim, you may have to replace the ribbon or board. Because you will have to press power then eject to enter Factory/Service mode.
I don't think it will work by powering on with the controller then hit eject. You know, I never tried though. It might.
