To downgrade directly to 4.30 CFW you need to apply different patches to the flash. Then install it from recovery. Because you can not exit FSM on 4.30. So don't confuse the kid more. LOL.
To fix your brick, follow the guide below but start at Chapter 2. When you get to the step where you see the connect controller screen, you will need to remove the wire you soldered. You will not see the screen until you remove the wire.
Then continue with the downgrade with files from the step 1 folder. The link for the files you need are in the spoiler "Things you will need"
Patcher doesn't work on my PC I drag dropped bkpps3.bin file into program and nothing happens...
