Well, if the E3 reader service mode (downgrade) works then it may be possible to JailBreak it as well... I am sure we'll know in the next few hours as people grab and experiment with v3.55 a little.
Update: More details, seems bad news after all:
<el_apren> Looks like they’ve patched it… You’re still able to put the PS3 in Factory/Service mode; however, step 5 (referring to the tutorial here) and onward is a no go. The system continues to boot into Factory/Service mode, even with the modified 3.41 PUP and the first Lv2diag.self file loaded alone on a USB drive. Fortunately the second Lv2diag.self works and returns the PS3 to retail mode. Perhaps we can overcome this with a little h
<el_apren> dowgrade is patched
yeah, i read lvl2diag.self works back to retail but only after the 2nd install on the sd card... glad i bought a E3Card, should be getting in the next 3 days...
but won't try anything until then just in case... wait it out.
wow: beat me to it... lol

yeah hopefully. hopefully a free downgrade comes out soon, or I'll just update to 3.55. I still have 1 on 3.41
Oh Lord, this is so not good, but i'll keep my jailbreak anyway, one of the things that makes me stay is the emulators, i'm waiting for the nullDC and Dolphin. I'll update only when the free method gets released.
yeap Dolphin... the good thing is they can't really block the exploit, so give it time...
i wonder if using the usb id from as Sony device and spoofing it would allow the JBgrade...?
so we can get it in and out of service mode? that's good right?
the 3.41 modified just doesn't load or something?
Cool ! Thanks to X3 and E3 team, who was born and make money with 5$ key & opensource code to don't share their find, and will release a pre-death new bin-hex for their clone. For all X3/E3 customers of this weekend, have a lot of fun now ^^
Ps3 was made by $ony, not by a group of little arrogant dev. They know all we"ll find tomorrow...
They disable ssl so you can bypass the update, just this week

Some users say they could log-on to psn with 3.50 and lg5tool... anyone want to try it?
