asking for 4.40 is caused by the downgrader...how do they call them? hybrid/frankenstein firmwares? not important...and i could have dreamed it...
anyway..because u have tryed the "425to355.pup" this one gives the 4.40 screen and for Recovery instead of XMB-system update....not tested with this one but can verify 100% that this wont matter for the "REBUG 999 downgrader" thePS3 eats it like candy via Recovey to.....now for Rogero not to pull anything down...cuse he released always good pups e.g 355 series/the famous 3.7afixer(dex and stuf....) now for the 4.xx series i'm not really sure..then again others seem to run it perfectly fine!! but whenever tested this on my end..must say the4.21 ones it seems to have problems with HDD/ROS0/1 CORESOS corrupt errors, this could also coe in combination with an earlierMM build when it started to support it...e.g the "power down PS3 option in MM on 4.21 Rogero(the 50/50 bricker) after hitting that..the HDD yellow led went nuts and after the reboot..the PS3 worked but like an old granny...real slow..weird behaviour...nd ofcourse the HDD led was going crazy to.....that was back then but it happend..still have the dump of that NORflash/corrupt COREOS cuse the only way to fix was using a hardware flasher
bck to the problem....can u try REBUG's 999 downgrader to see if the PS3 takes it?
