ok 00 00 00 01 is fine cause normal on retail it would be 00 00 00 02 or 00 looks like access rights to me but anyway 82 is not ok. Just try to search with google and figure it out. If you can't find i'll tell you
sorry, but i already have searched for this some time. rikukh3 has posted some things on ngu and those infos from wiki. nothing more i have found so far and i don't know what else or what has to be changed. someone said sth here about qa flag, that i can try. but why is that target id wrong? on irc someone said it is only plaintext in idps
After updating to 3.55.2 Rebug i was NOT able to simply jump back to a older fw version. Even with system debug option. There for we still would need the special downgrader pup's to be able to downgrade software wise from xmb with this new function. But on Rebug you still can use togle QA (if you have untogled your con after) and just downgrade back to the fw version you want.
Maybe we will find a way to convert the special downgrader pup's to use on retail cons. Should be possible
Hence we need each time to install "CFW355-OTHEROS++-SPECIAL.PUP" to swap from 3.55 to 3.41 by QA flag? But this special pup will delete Game data and installed pkgs by this downgrade?
Can we add a swap folder With this 3.55 special pup and use this "QA flagged" swap in this order:
1-PS3 3.41 QA flagged
2-Update to 3.55 by QA flag
3-Swap to 3.55 special downgrade pup by QA flag
4-Downgrade/swap to 3.41 by QA flag
You have probable swap to your 3.41 with that way and can you confirm me it work with no problem and without lose of datas?
Yes, this is right, the 6th byte of should be changed to 82 for debug. It was 85 which mean your console was a european retail originally.
Obviously you are right with your first step "82" as it allows the debug pup to install which didn't happen before you changed it, dont let anyone put you off, you are on the right track. I'm wondering, apart from Debug PS3 consoles being able to install any debug pups what is it advantage to having Rebug on a retail? (Other than the fact that it could be upgraded to 4.01 debug etc)
Isn't Rebug better as its fully hacked and has features from a few different firmwares, ie 2 different debug menus etc?
Are you sure its to do with accesss rights? I thought he was talking about the consoles EID but i could be mistaken
84 = US retail
85 = EU retail
89 = AU retail
87 = UK retail etc
Edit: found a more complete list
Value - Console Type
81 Reference Tool (DECR)
82 Debug (DECH)
83 Retail Japanese
84 Retail America/Canada
85 Retail Europe
86 Retail South Korea
87 Retail United Kingdom
88 Retail Mexico
89 Retail Australia/New Zealand
8A Retail South Asia
8B Retail Taiwan
8C Retail Russia
8D Retail China (Never released)
A0 System Debugger (Sony Internal)
PS3 wiki also says 8th byte is your motherboard revision, so yours is 0B = a slim JTP-001 or JSD-001 or KTE-001 most probably.

It know a full conversion would be really cool and I would do it myself but i'm curious to what would actually be gained by being an real debug 3.55? (apart from the PS3s value and fact of being of able to upgrade to official 4.01 debug FW of course which would be really nice )
BTW: Every IDPS i've seen starts in 00 00 00 01 on debug/tool/retail as far as i can see so dont go changing the 4th byte.
What i'm trying to say is what can Rebug NOT do that real debug FW can?
