    I'm a litlle bit noob-ish about this topic, but maybe someone knows: if the update and FMW info is stored on the motherboard or somwere else on the PS3 can you erase it by taking out electricity (batery or similar) which stores the information, or is it maneged in some other way... if someone knows please answer.

    No. Once the NAND is written, it's written. I assume you're thinking of a CMOS battery like in a PC? There's no way to unwrite the NAND to downgrade. For now...

    Yeah, I noticed that about the topic too- a mod renamed it because it was very unspecific initially. And yes, I know it's not easy to accidentally upgrade the firmware, but when I'm intoxicated it's much easier to just skip right over all those messages.

    Also, I'm not having any luck finding methods to play ps2 backups on ps3. Yes I've used the search function, but I can only find things about MultiMan's experimental loading capability. Can someone help point me in the right direction?

    Here are a few other articles on it, the first is probably the most useful but they all are interesting to a degree:

    http://www.ps3news.com/ps3-hacks-jai...ailbreak-mode/

    Finally, some older (archival) threads:

    Ahh, thank you very much. Suddenly it seems I should update the firmware on my 160gb slim so I can play online, and find some way to acquire a phat model with firmware 3.55 or older.

    There is still plenty of old stock of slim PS3s - mainly 120 GB with pre 3.56 FWs...

    Oh yeah, there's no doubt about that. But if I buy another PS3 I think a phat model is the way to go because of the backwards compatibility, especially considering my PS2 is on its last legs at this point...

    when sony released firmware 3.56 they revoked the lv2diag.self files we were using to downgrade so if you put your ps3 in service mode it cant be taken out and you can't downgrade sony has a new lv2diag.self so they can still repair any systems sent to them but those files haven't been leaked yet so there is no downgrade and they probably won't be.
